A self-help book that helps with different strategies to attain one's goals and stay motivated is always welcome in my library. I like that the author offers a practical approach.

Amazing book to read, it really motivates you. This is the book I was looking for for a long time. It is clear, effective. It explains everything you need to know. We need more books like this!

Sounds like a good motivational book. Not really into these genre but your review is interesting and persuasive enough to tell me to sample it. Thanks!

Latest Review: In the Beginning by Jaime Reyes

Post by dragonet07 » 12 Jun 2019, 02:44

It seems that timing is everything lately. I'm not exactly at a high point in my life. I'm always busy with my freelance work but, at the end of the day, I feel like nothing is really getting done and I feel absolutely completely stuck. I have a hard time even remembering what I want or why anymore. Maybe this book will help guide me back to the path I really want to be on, rather than allow me to keep meandering through my current existence which I'm not 100% happy with. Thank you for the helpful review.

Hawkins partially redeems himself with occasional personal anecdotes, such as one about his prior struggles with obesity, or the story of how his grandfather declined a job with an aspiring but yet-unknown cartoonist named Walt Disney

I'm interested in the concept of symbolism and would like to know the difference between tactical and strategic activities. This book appears to be very handy to stimulate dwindling motivation. Thanks for sharing.

From what I understood, coached to greatness is a motivational book, I recommend it because, today all we need is to be motivated for better of future, so from the guide line given to us by the author John M Hawkins, we will make future better.

This sounds like a typical self help book, that asks you to work to make changes to better yourself. I like the idea of having an item to remind you of where you want to be to keep working towards your goals.

Indeed, we need tools with which to work in order to achieve our objective. I like the idea of symbolism, a re-fueling mechanism when motivation starts to slip away, something physical that can remind us of what we need to do in order to succeed. Thumbs up for this fantastic review.

Congratulations on BOTD. I think this book can help those wanting to take a closer look at themselves. Find ways to keep motivated. My husband and I personally meditate in the morning and before bed to clear our minds, and take a moment to be at peace..and it truly helps. Because at the end of meditation is when we pick one thing we are happy about and allow ourselves to build on creating that moment in our mind. You are not only relaxed but your spirit is happy. Anyway, I hope this helps those who read it.
