Book Review-177 Mental Toughness Secrets Of The World Class by Steve Siebold

I was introduced to this book by Steve Hagar, who is a Regional Vice President I had worked for in the past at a company called Primerica. This was the book he would read to our team during our weekly meetings. 177 Secrets Of The World Class by Steve Siebold exposes the facts of what makes certain people achieve much better results than your average joe. Siebold goes into detail with each principle about the mental cognitions and thoughts that empower those who go from being middle class citizens to the world class. I decided to buy a copy of my own to use as a reference, and have continuously read it since!

177 Mental Toughness Secrets Of The World Class gives great tools and information on how to do well for ourselves, as many of the principles were not taught to us in school or by our parents. Siebold understands that humans are driven through emotion, and not logic; as he shows us how to use our emotions to our advantage. ‘Champions,’as Siebold calls the world class, are the ones that put in more effort than anyone else. Champions are willing to do the things other people are too scared to even imagine. However, they know the big payoff at the end will be worth it. 177 Secrets Of The World Class makes us realize that one’s definition of success in the middle class is different from that of the world class, which separates the winners from the losers.

I really enjoyed 177 Secrets Of The World Class and the cited insight from some of the wisest people that have ever lived that Siebold provides. I highly recommend this to someone who is ready to take off in their business and personal life. After reading 2-3 principles, I would continuously find myself setting the book down and deep thinking about how I can apply these tactics to my own life. I will forever thank Steve for introducing this to me, and for the lessons I learned throughout the book. If you buy this book, it will be a big step towards transforming your life for the better! Happy reading!


Book Review-The Success Principles by Jack Canfield

Recently, I was shown how to achieve my dreams from an amazing book, The Success Principles, by millionaire entrepreneur Jack Canfield. We all deep down want better for our lives, as Canfield shows us how we are able to get what we want. Ever wonder why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer? And not just financially, but in other areas as well? The Success Principles shows us exactly why that is.

Canfield shows us that to get what we want and to become successful, we must first and foremost take responsibility for everything that happens to us. We must also have the confidence in our abilities, along with the visualization for seeing what we want, as if we already have it. Canfield talks about the law of attraction: where acquiring something requires being able to see us already having it. This actually makes us believe something is achievable, and channels our energy and focus towards achieving our desires. The Success Principles also shows us how to act and think like a person in the world class would. This helps cut down the learning curve by many years, by having a mentor that shows us the ropes on how to become the person we aspire to be.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who desires to take charge of their life and learn from one of the best. Jack Canfield is one of the most wise people around, and there is no one that is better to learn from than him! The Success Principles will show us how to become a class act, become more respected, and to have more control over the pillars of our lives. Thanks for reading, and I hope you buy this book for your well-being!


Book Review-Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

Ever wonder why the rich get richer, while the poor get poorer? Rich Dad Poor Dad will show you why that is. This is the story of a boy named Robert who grows up and learns how to become rich from his friend’s dad. I found this book to be very helpful with my own personal life with managaing my finances and my productivity. It made me think a different way than from what I was taught growing up. Rich Dad Poor Dad was published to provide those with much-needed financial education that is not provided to us in by our parents and the modern school system.

Kiyosaki had what he called two fathers growing up, his ‘poor’ dad, who was his biological father. He then had his ‘rich’ dad, who was the dad of his friend, Mike. ‘Poor’ dad, as Kiyosaki called him, had always preached that our employer was responsible for our retirement and we were supposed to work for the same company until we die. However, Kiyosaki’s ‘rich’ dad introduced him to a different concept, that we should “mind our own business.” This is saying that building our own company, investment portfolios, and managing our own insurance is essential for surviving in today’s world. This book shows how to overcome the challenges facing us in today’s economy, with more companies cutting 401(k) and pension plans that most people used to live off of.

I highly recommend Rich Dad Poor Dad to anyone who is interested in taking charge of their finances and learning how to invest themselves without the dependence of an employer. This book sparked my curiousity towards becoming an entrepreneur and learning how money works. Considering it has been historically known that our employer gives us security, Rich Dad teaches Kiyosaki at a young age that there is no such thing. Being an employee will only make us secure short-term, but becoming a business owner is the pathway to true freedom in the long-term. I am glad I read Rich Dad Poor Dad at the age of 21, and feel everyone should read this while they are in their 20’s and younger!
