Summary

Positive thinking has had its time - the new way of overcoming life's challenges is Useful Belief.

Useful Belief turns the "be positive" industry upside down with a fresh and modern approach to achievement. Sometimes things in life are not positive. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. If you've had a nightmare of a year, the last thing you want to hear is "Be positive!" Instead, you need an actual strategy to dig yourself out and a truly useful guidebook to show you where to go next. This is that guidebook.

Through the engaging tale of a business traveler and the three significant encounters on his journey, this book takes you on a journey of your own - to self-awareness and an improved approach to business, parenting, and relationships. You'll learn how thinking "useful" is better than thinking "positive", and you'll uncover the utility of your past, present, and future challenges. You'll undergo a major shift in the way you solve your problems, and you'll learn how to navigate your way out of ambiguity and toward success.

If you have challenges at work right now, just deciding to "be positive" will not fix them. Useful belief and strategy will. This book shows you how to frame your challenges to make them surmountable and how to formulate an action plan for getting where you need to be.

  • Learn a simple self-awareness strategy that turns problems into plans
  • Discover the truth about "truth" and the importance of "useful"
  • Go beyond positivity to actually fix personal and professional problems
  • Uncover the valuable lessons you've learned from the challenges you've overcome

Everything that has ever happened to you has happened for a reason. It doesn't matter if it's true, because it's useful to believe it is true. Useful Belief leads you toward the self-awareness and strategic outlook you need to achieve personal fulfillment and professional success.

really useful

I found the concepts and the presentation excellent. I deducted one star as I was really disappointed with the future useful beliefs as for me that was rather a copy of many other unattainable systems not matching the practicality of the first 2.
great book for audio and certainly one I think you can comeback to again and again

Short but Packed

A short read/listedn but this book is packed with ideas and information. Good use of personal stories to get point across.
