The Pillars of Success is written by Jack Canfield, Nick Nanton, Dr. Allen Lycka, and Harriet Tinka. Achieving success in life is what the majority of people aspire to. So if this is their goal, why do so many people fail? The secret to success requires some fundamental habits, behaviors, and principles. These principles or pillars will make the difference between reaching your goals or not. Throughout this guide, some of the finest entrepreneurs will share their knowledge and how they overcame the many obstacles they faced along the way. Discover how to apply systems that work for you long-term, how to work smart not hard, how to set goals effectively, and how to view setbacks like an entrepreneur. You will also learn to understand why sometimes what presents itself as a disaster is really an opportunity. Knowledge is power and by using the wealth of knowledge in this guide, you will propel yourself toward your goals quickly and effectively. It is time to let go of fear and dream big with inspired action.
Although there are numerous self-improvement books out there, The Pillars of Success is one of the best I have come across. There are powerful and helpful techniques in every chapter that will increase your chances of success without a doubt. My favorite sections were the SMART goal setting method, being alert to opportunities, and looking at obstacles with a perspective that will push you forward not hold you back. These techniques are so easy to follow but they teach you to get the foundations of your attitude and mindset correct first. I have finally discovered the difference between successful visualization and simply daydreaming. The Shiny Object Syndrome and Systems Thinking method was incredibly inspiring. Finally, the section on Disciplines For Success was really compelling; no-one could fail to take action toward their goal after reading this. The stories that these incredible mentors share are worth their weight in gold and will save you so much time on your own experimental methods.
