Publisher's Summary

Imagine. Believe. Achieve.
Many self-help books offer a lot of new age platitudes and sappy mantras:
Just love yourself.
See the glass as half full.
Believe it and it will come.
Really? That’s not how it works, and you know it. A lifetime’s worth of struggle is not overturned in a small moment of positive thinking. But if you have the right attitude - attitude and skills - you can and will accomplish anything and everything you want. This book gives you both, attitude and action. By its end, you will have all the tools you need to change your life. No hype. No false promises. You will learn to:

Cultivate your passion and embrace your uniqueness to create a purpose-filled life... on your own terms
Transform your suffering into peace, wisdom, and strength
Work through fear, worry, shame, and negative self-talk to blast through obstacles and create self-confidence, self-esteem, and a healthy self-image
Take powerful, informed, deliberate actions to make your dreams a reality
Forget surviving; it’s your time to thrive. You do have the ability and potential to achieve unlimited health, wealth, and happiness. Getting there won’t all be easy - nothing worthwhile ever is - but take this journey and your life will change dramatically. Your possibilities are unlimited, and your life is waiting for you to break free and claim it.

Interesting book, if your willing to work

Bottom line:
If your willing to put in the work this book is going to push you in the right direction.

Any time a book starts off by saying it's not your 'average self help book' you know your in for an average self help book with re-hashed info. This started that way and quickly changed, this isn't a book that you can read and get a few ideas from. You have to be willing to put in some work and after that you will find yourself in a better place. I will admit there are a few spots I glazed over, but overall I was quite impressed with the delivery and structure along with the exercises included.

Well worth the read, I actually bought the hard copy for my wife to read (she doesn't like audiobooks lol)

Good message,vulgar language.

Ms Michaels has a good message to share, however; I was very disappointed with her vulgar language. I completely understand that at times as a personal trainer or even a drill instructor it can be effective to use a more dynamic vocabulary to cut through the target person’s mental fog. Use of certain words “the F word” in this format only comes across as vulgar and very poor taste. I just see that her choice to include these will eliminate a large number of people that would otherwise benefit from the message.
The irony here is that the discipline Ms Michaels found to be a life changing tool for herself in her teens could be applied to her speaking skills to help attain her goal of helping a greater number of people.
