Maximum Achievement: Strategies and Skills that Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed By Brian Tracy

    I just want to share these words about this book,,,LIFE CHANGING, LIFE CHANGING,,,LIFE CHANGING!!!

    The techniques in this book if applied are life changing and in every realm of life that you choose to apply them to, not just your career. The title of the book is a little misleading but the content has a mix of psychology, business sense, and life all mixed into a method of programming yourself for success, followed with ways to create action plans so that your ideals manifest themselves into reality.

    The author, Brian Tracy, talks the talk but has walked the walk going from poverty and a troubled background to a fullfilling and rich life, and not just in the financial sense of the words. I have never been positively impacted as much by a book as i am being with this one. Then again, I will probably echo this with other book i am sure to find in the future that will have this type of impact on my life.

    I am confident this book can help anyone to believe in themselves and map out their ideal life,,, and hey if so it happens that you only reach three quarters of your ideal life, is that not worth the read?

    Good reads!
    9780684803319 I read this book in prison. It was the first self-help book I ever read. In 5 short years after my release; 1. I started a successful property management company. 2. I bought 12 houses, remodeled and rented them out. 3. I started a successful personal training business located in the financial district of NYC. 4. I traveled the world. 5. More importantly I changed the way I thought and looked. It changed my socio-econmic status and who I associated with. Everything about me has changed because of goals and the principles I follow in this book.
    To say this book helped me to be successful would be an understatement. The information in this book is like a scalpel, you can have it and do nothing or you can use it properly and change lives. 9780684803319 One of the most comprehensive books on personal development, psychology and goal-setting I have ever read.

    I actually think the title does the book a disservice. As an already achievement-oriented person, I was hesitant to read something that would just push me harder. Quite the contrary - every page is packed with information that helped me get clarity on my mental patterns and true desires. I see this book as a rare meta book in the field of personal development because of how broad and all-encompassing it is. There are a few books that qualify for changed my life category - although it is a little too early to tell, I really think this could be one of them. 9780684803319 Work on yourself as if your future depended on it ... because it does. You cannot change the world, but you can present the world with one improved person: yourself.


    Another fantastic, highly useful edition from Brian Tracy.
    Very practical, hands-on info as well... 9780684803319 This is one of my favorite books. I almost think of it as a more spiritually based book than business. I enjoy the common sense approach to life, the steps to organization and seriousness of commitment to achieve anything worthwhile in life and the reiteration that you need to have a burning desire to complete your goals.

    There are a wide variety of angles and approaches that just make sense. This book trumps all the ideas in The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne two fold. I reread this book often and think it's actually changed my life in a very positive manner. I am so grateful for the lessons and ideas and have actually integrated them into my life with ease. 9780684803319

Maximum Achievement: Strategies and Skills that Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed

    Maximum Achievement is a tremendous book. It's like a modern day version of Think and Grow Rich, and How to Win Friends and Influence People and A goal setting seminar all in one.

    Also there are many step by step exercises to help you develop your skills. A book that should be reread over and over again. 9780684803319 This one is my new favourite books of Brian Tracy next to Eat That Frog! I can't wait to reread this Maximum Achievement.

    He has a a calm and soothing delivery that makes it relaxing to listen to him on audiobook and his ideas and wise words are just brilliant and simple. It really helped that i took my time listening to this book in chunks over a month. I can't wait to review this one with particular ideas and quotes i enjoyed added in after rereading it soon. 9780684803319 Excellent. I especially like the section about to give constructive criticism & the danger of destructive criticism. My favorite quote of the book (paraphrase): Decide what it is you want, then resolve to pay the price to get it. 9780684803319 One of the best books ever written on the subject of success and achievement. 9780684803319 I have a simple formula for success that requires the right Opportunity, Timing and People. This book, Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy was a potent combination of the three and impacted my life at a time I most needed this type of message.

    As a student of the success classics I have always prided myself on understanding the laws of the mind and achievement. However, there was a missing link of those laws and their practical daily application in the world of business and sales...enter Brian Tracy.

    I had just gone through a business failure and was struggling to regain my footing financially and found myself back in corporate the bottom. My mind would not let me accept that position as a long term occupation so I used this book to help me re-build my opportunities.

    I am a big proponent and believer in Strenghfinders 2.0 and through my assessment my #1 strength is Strategic. The language and syntax that Tracy uses speaks directly to my need to see things linearly laid out...progressively building to a crescendo of results.

    The most impactful chapters for me were:

    Make Your Life a Masterpiece
    The Master Program
    The Master Goal

    As a book on success, it contains all the basic core elements such as the power of thoughts/mind, eliminating fear, setting goals and living a life of balance.

    Tracy is credible because of his own struggles, similar to mine and certainly most people and the authenticity for which he conveys his approach to business and life success. He is an enduring figure in this genre and his decades of top tier status reflect on the power and effectiveness of the message.

    I have not read this book in several years, but now in doing this review and looking at the well-worn, highlighted pages, I will dig back in for reinforcement of key lessons.

    This book has reached Classic status which I reserve for books that have had the most impact on my life and represent timeless, proven techniques for which they were written.

    I highly recommend this book! 9780684803319
