Publisher's Summary

This book is about “changing your habits". It is designed to trigger introspection and an inward evaluation that can trigger action to improve your personality, behavior, attitudes, communication skills, demeanor, and overall habits. Face your fears, and do it, anyway.

According to Paolo Coelho, “The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself,” and Eleanor Roosevelt adds, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”

Don’t let your fears frustrate you, limit you, or - even worse - paralyze you. See fear as a warning light, not as a red light. I see it over and over again with my clients: Once they start doing what they fear, their fear goes away. Mark Twain knew this already, 100 years ago, when he said: “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than with the ones that you did."

Face your fears. Ninety percent of them are pure imagination, anyway. Illusions! Incredible stories of drama and disaster that will probably never happen and are made up by your mind - “the world’s greatest director of soap operas” as T. Harv Eker calls it, to keep you in your comfort zone. The only problem is that great things like development, growth, and success happen outside of the comfort zone.

Fear is your mind’s survival mechanism. It wants to keep you safe, and anything that it doesn't know scares it. This was good thousands of years ago when you had to run from big predators to avoid getting eaten, but nowadays, most of the time, it hurts us. Most of the time, behind your fears, there will be great opportunities waiting for you, so make it a habit always to ask yourself: ”What’s the worst thing that can happen to me if I do this?" and evaluate if the risk is worth taking or not.

Be careful. There is also a price for not taking a risk or stepping out of your comfort zone.

A bit dull.

I have to break with the pack on this one. I guess I was hoping for a more detailed story about H.H. Holmes and his murder castle. It had the basic story, but I got more info about Holmes by listening to the Stuff I Missed in History podcast. It was well researched, but I kept feeling like I was in a history lecture. It wasn't a book that kept me wanting to listen. I slogged through it, but ended up feeling like it wasn't worth 14 hours of my time. I liked the description about the fair's opening day, and the disastrous smokestack fire, but honestly, those were the only two parts where I was on the edge of my seat.

A nice kick in the pants seems like.

Down-to-earth and encouraging.

Down-to-earth and encouraging. I wrote this review as soon as I finished the book, rather than procrastinating it like I usually do. An easy to listen to the mix of personal story, scientific facts, and helpful tips. Useful ideas and tools to overcome procrastination starting now. A great listen.

Words can't express the sum I like this book.

This book doesn't simply clarify the main drivers of tarrying, however, it gives the peruser genuine systems to defeat them. These systems incorporate recognizing triggers of stalling and disposing of them, creating self-control, organizing undertakings, compelling individual time the board tips, and so on. The audiobook is useful for me to open and close, listen in the vehicle or sitting territory. Words can't express the sum I like this book. Just in the underlying barely any parts, you will see.

This is an essential guide for everyone.

This is an essential guide for everyone. The people whose lifestyle, money, success, and fame you most likely admire are the ones who make at 5 Am, run a few miles, meditate, have a fresh juice for breakfast, set tasks for the day - basically get shit done. A helpful guide for all of us. Awesome!

This book has lots of tips that are helpful.

I was as great at procrastinating. This book has lots of tips that are helpful. I have already changed some of my behaviors and my stress level has decreased. I look back at the end of the day to see what I have accomplished. I have stopped beating myself up over what I did not get done. GREAT BOOK!!!
