What’s the point?

I loved Weldon’s book the Power of Consistency so i decided to give this a chance. 1.5 hrs in and he’s still just talking about “stuff” in great detail. I still don’t understand the point of this book. Sometimes authors need to just quit while they are ahead because this book is superfluous .

Very engaging

This book really gave insight on what it’s like to face all odds and still come out on top. It was interesting and held my attention. I could visualize what Weldon went through in the book. As a prior law enforcement officer, I could appreciate his point of view and also appreciate his sacrifice. I really liked the book.

Wow!

I really liked the candidness and the humility of the author. The book held my attention throughout. I would highly recommend it to those who are successful as well as those who are struggling in life.

Belief, that is “firm belief “, is the key.

Excellent book

I enjoyed this whole story. I was introduced to Weldon through the heating and air-conditioning business. I’ve had his books on my shelf for years and I finally opened them up and read them.

Life Changing!

Mr Long, your story has been an inspiration, a motivating strength in my journey to change my life. I read your first book and within minutes, I was in tears. Your life experiences have given me hope, hope that an honorable and successful life was possible for me. With your years of seeing it all, doing it all, and owning it, you are a shining example that no one is doomed because of earlier life choices. After reading your first book, now this one, I've taken the scary steps to leave a huge income, earned via distasteful methods, to pursue a new business helping others find hope and success. God Bless you, Mr Long. You may have spent time in prison, sir, but your testimonials helped me free myself from my own. - Elizabeth Spraggins

Inspirational and Helpful

Semi-autobiographical, inspirational success life-work method shared by the author who had a rough/tough youth and young adult life before finding the way out and up. Very good food for thought, and applicable to maing the best of getting through one's daily life in a positive, fulfilling manner. Easy listen book in one-two days while multi-tasking, no how-to lists or workbook engagement-type sections involving listener's interaction/reflection.
