In Passion to Move Mountains: The Oxcart Technique, author Terry L. Fossum shares his knowledge with us on how to make our goals truly achievable and “virtually guaranteed” by following practical and specific steps. “The Oxcart Technique will empower you to cultivate the most powerful emotions you possess in your heart and soul and use them to your benefit ... it will spell out the actions you need to take every day to reach your goals, and continuously inspire you to reach them.”

The narrative is straightforward and the Oxcart Technique is highly practical with its three main components; a Success Scenario, a Failure Scenario, and an Action Plan. It’s easy to follow and Fossum provides enough examples for readers. I realize the importance of putting aspirations and fears on paper, having a good look at them, and mulling over the necessary steps. It’s much easier and less stressful compared to pondering everything in your mind. In other words, the Oxcart Technique gives you more clarity to achieve your goals.

For the most part, the discussion and guide that touches on the financial aspect and sufficient nest egg resonate with me – obviously it’s a subject that’s crucial (and will always be) to everyone. On the whole, Fossum has given readers a great and insightful tool to reclaim their goals that weren’t achieved before, goals that “began as a great idea but ended as a disappointment.” You can rekindle your passion to achieve your ideal weight, financial state, relationship or any goal.

Passion to Move Mountains - The Oxcart Technique by Terry L. Fossum begins by identifying passion as the single most important factor in success. Terry goes on to examine the trick we use to cheat ourselves ‘of the good we oft might win’ – excuses. The will to confront failure is mentioned as another essential trait. Then comes the heart of this book, the oxcart technique, and together with that, the book offers many practical suggestions to the reader. And those cover almost everything that can have an impact on success, like making changes in one's life, identifying goals, controlling one's weight or overcoming addiction. Exploratory questions and surveys are also given at vantage points in the book to enhance the reader’s understanding.

Passion to Move Mountains - The Oxcart Technique by Terry L. Fossum offers invaluable assistance in one's quest for success. The ‘success techniques’ proposed are quite simple, logical and effective. For example, the approach suggested to overcome one of the most common reasons for failure, procrastination, is to break the complete task into convenient smaller chunks that can be easily achieved. Self examination questions and surveys given at many parts of this book make it easy to grasp the finer points and put them into practice. Inspiring quotes given at many places enhance its value, such as: “Failure is not falling down, but refusing to get up.” This is a well written book; it is a good companion in one's journey to success.
