Not everybody has the ability, the desire, the drive to create lasting wealth. But many who do are kept back because of the long years it takes to gain the necessary knowledge, experience and perspective. Success books, tapes and courses largely appeal to an audience that wants a "quick-fix," a magic pill to instant riches. An audience--we might as well be blunt--which is largely composed of "losers" and wishful thinkers.Click Here for some excerpts from BUILDING YOURSELF
There is no "magic pill." Success is won out there in the real world in ten thousand different ways. You cannot bypass the learning process. But you can accelerate it, if you learn from the experience, and the mistakes, of others.
If you cannot think for yourself, or don't want to, please don't buy this book. Your freedom to think for yourself is under constant attack. There are plenty of people and institutions out there who will gladly do your thinking for you. You don't stand a chance against them, unless you learn to think your own thoughts, and act on them. BUILDING YOURSELF covers this critical area in detail. You'll learn how your attitudes are shaped by others, how they try to mold you, and how to break free from the mold.
Because you've got to. Physical strength. Emotional strength. Accelerate the learning curve. Learn how to maximize your energies. Learn how to let go. BUILDING YOURSELF is crammed with action techniques for maximizing your potential--early in your life--in every critical area of it.Click Here for some excerpts from BUILDING YOURSELF
You can never achieve success alone. You deal with people. Partners, from your business associates to your spouse, can make or break you. BUILDING YOURSELF shows you the importance of strategic alliances. After you read it, you'll pick your friends as carefully as you pick your enemies.
Sure, people always talk about change, but they're scared to death. You're not. Change is your friend, your secret ally, your ticket. In BUILDING YOURSELF, learn the why of change, the when, the how.Click Here for some excerpts from BUILDING YOURSELF
BUILDING YOURSELF gives you a ROAD MAP you can use to move directly toward the wealth you so urgently want to create. DETOURS-- from self defeating attitudes to career mistakes based on lack of information--lurk everywhere. Without a clear vision--constantly monitored--success can be elusive, or come to you when you are too old to really enjoy it.
A book that lays down specific guidelines on how you can orient your life toward becoming successful and building wealth. The hard truth on traps to avoid, skills to acquire, attitudes to develop. It's all there in black and white, with no punches pulled.Click Here for some excerpts from BUILDING YOURSELF
By now, you probably realize that BUILDING YOURSELF: PUTTING YOUR SUCCESS TOGETHER ONE PIECE AT A TIME is not an ordinary book. Frankly, some of the concepts in the book will be disturbing to people without vision or who can't think flexibly.Click Here for some excerpts from BUILDING YOURSELF
But IF YOU ALREADY SEE YOURSELF AS A SUCCESS, and have a burning desire to learn as much as you can to maximize that success, you have before you a resource that you will use time and again, a book that you will dog-ear, lend to your family and friends, use time and again.
If you have ever been amazed by or envious of another person's success in life, you don't have to be. Building Yourself gives you a jump start on the road of life. In this rapidly changing world, we need a standard to measure ourselves with. Building Yourself provides it with stunning clarity.
