Description

The simple, practical ideas in this book could transform your life.

It’s about the science of success. Forget the myths, like always being positive and reciting affirmations to keep you on track. Read what objective researchers have observed about people who succeed.

You’ll discover choices you can make to liberate you to achieve much more at work, at home and in sport.

You’ll discover a way to train the front of your brain to keep you focused.

There’s a chapter with practical ways to develop a special kind of optimism that keeps top performers motivated.

There’s another on managing emotions that disrupt our lives: anxiety, depression and anger.

What successful people really do is for you, your team and your family. Look out for Parts II and III.
