Critic Reviews

"As Jake illustrates in this book, your dreams aren’t out of reach, your fears and limiting beliefs don’t have to stop you, and you’re never too young or too old to live more confidently or to make a difference. I am confident that through this book, Jake will now inspire you to achieve your most heartfelt dreams." (Jack Canfield, originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series)

"It's about time a success manifesto was written by a young voice. Jake Ducey is the ideal ambassador of inspiration for the next generation. This will be huge." (John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are From Venus)

"[Jake Ducey has] a winning collection of inspiring stories from celebrities and historical figures, including Jackie Robinson’s brave stance against racism, Sylvester Stallone’s uncompromising attitude in his early career, and J.K. Rowling’s perseverance during her pre-Harry Potter life. Ducey’s message is simple - goals are best achieved through active pursuit...." (Publishers Weekly

Jake Ducey knocks it out of the park.

I loved hearing him tell his own story. It was very insightful and I did learn a lot of lessons.

Nothing ground breaking, but it's the Swiss Army knife of self hell

I really enjoyed the book. It's one of those things I need to listen to once a year.
+Easy listen, great content.
-I felt like he was borrowing too many ideas. Although I think that's a good thing because that means he has distilled all the books he has read into this.
-I found it hard to take him seriously for the first hour. But after finishing the book, I have deep respect for this man!

Great job!!

A paradigm altering experience!

Jake's vision for this world is not only unique but exactly what this world needs. It is an absolute joy to know that there are like minded, young leaders that have the vision and drive to open the minds of others and empowering our youth by making them believe that they're capable of so much more... which they are, which we are! I listened to the whole audio book in ONE DAY!! It's the best book I've ever experienced.

Worthwhile Book

Enjoyed the book. Worthwhile with many unknown facts about some notable people. Jake is inspiring in his own unique way.

Good Book

There is a lot of information and will need to listen to more than once and maybe even take some notes to implement the ideas into your daily life. Well written and organized!

not recommending the audio version

I nearly finished, but couldn't quite get through this audiobook. If you want to check this out, buy the print version, not the audiobook. The reader has a bit of a "surfer dude" sound that is difficult to listen to for a few minutes, much less 10 hours. That said, the content overall is not bad.
