Not religious? This book is.

Made uncomfortable by early use of biblical quotation and "your Creator". This likely appeals to some, but not me.

The author, however, is a dynamic speaker with a soothing voice.

Really Good Step-by-Step

For such a short book, there was a lot, and I mean A LOT, here. The most important things are to develop the essential mental skills of Clarity (become absolutely clear on who you are and what you want; after all, you can't hit a target you can't see), Focus (on your most important goals--be specific, make them easily stated, and write them down), and Concentration (pursue single-mindedly until you've completed your tasks and achieved your goals). This all comes through practice and repetition, and it'd be a good idea to follow those with expertise.
There's info here on how we've become addicted to distraction (that ding that says someone's just texted you releases chemicals in the brain, and it only gets worse the more you drop everything to focus on said texts), plus how we can find our own power through the blessing of finding ours in states of excellence (again more practice/repetition).
What I liked most was near the end with step-by-step suggestions that reminded me of Angela Duckworth's "Grit," only without the plethora of scientific data (which is fine for "Grit," but really, I need a How-To at times). Resilience is covered. You look for the good when you're in a set-back. You learn from mistakes and accept responsibility for the way you choose to react. Pre-program solutions by thinking of the way you'll respond to possible problems, and begin immediately to improve upon the worst that can happen before it ever does.
There are no anecdotes in this book, no lighthearted humor: It's strictly: This is how you do it. Do you want to get it done. It's a great listen, easy to get through, and it makes life look like something that's possible to get through with success. Recommended.
