Publisher's Summary

Everyone wants to be a winner. But few can honestly count themselves as always Being the Best. Too often, people are thrown off course by popular notions of what true success is all about. Even Denis Waitley, author and narrator of Being the Best, readily admits he's been frequently sidetracked in the past.
In this new blockbuster by Denis, you'll find real-life answers to being happy with yourself, admired and respected by others, and truly successful in life. Genuine, lasting success, he says, comes from nurturing your own special talents, recognizing your natural abilities, and learning to live fully without limitations. "Success is not a score. It’s not what you own or earn." And it has no connection with pervasive myths, such as:

If you die with the most toys, you win
Nice guys finish last
Always look out for Number One

To underscore these observations, Denis shares his own odyssey and the critical mistakes he has made. He tried to please his father in a career choice. It didn't work. He tried to heed inner signals and found they were off the mark. When he gained material success, he became a show-off, enamored of possessions but empty inside. Not liking what he was, Denis changed. Profiting from his own experience and his study of hundreds of famous and not-so-famous winners, he traded fantasy for reality, fiction for truth. And now step by step, he shows how you can become what he calls "a five-star person". You discover:

How to put your Reticular Activating System to work
Where you are in the multilayered hierarchy of self-esteem - and what it takes to reach the top
A self-test of your integrity

If you're ready to break away from what holds millions back to live like the gifted, unique individual you are, Waitley provides new guidelines to get past mistakes and fears.

Critic Reviews

"Denis Waitley shows, most graphically, the difference between mythical superficial success and the genuine article. It's important that we know the difference." (Earl Nightingale, Author/narrator and radio commentator)
