A Deep Dive Into The Book (5:28)
I start the book off by giving my basic premise that we have become a nation of weenies, wimps, and victims. I put people through a test just by asking a series of questions. Do you allow people to take advantage of you? Most people these days allow themselves to be walked on and walked over. We all have areas of our life that we let others take advantage of us. So what I like for people to do is realize that while they think their tough, their probably not so tough especially in areas when it concerns their family. The other thing I like for people to realize is what do you really stand for, what do you believe in and what are your core values? I like people to know what they believe and then stand up for what they believe in. Remember this, if you tolerate it and put up with it, you’re endorsing it. Do you endorse people being rude to you? Well then why do you put up with it? So I start with doing an assessment of who you are, what you believe in and whether people do take advantage of you or not.
After that assessment is done I talk about some of the problems in society like political correctness. I think that’s the most castrating thing we got going on in our society right now is that we are afraid to speak up and say the truth. We have got to start speaking the truth whether people get their feelings hurt or not. The truth doesn’t care whether you like it. The truth is still the truth. We’ve got people who speak in very weak languages these days because they are afraid they might offend somebody. What I try to let everybody know is if you have a position at all on anything, someone is going to be offended by it. So stand for something and be brave enough to take it because standing up for what you believe in is one of the most important things in terms of your own personal integrity that you can ever do.
This book is about assessing where you are in your life and then telling you some of the things that you can do. We can’t change the world but we can change our world and this book is about teaching people how to change their world. When people don’t have any money it’s because their finances are out of control and you can get in control by having a written down budget. We need to know what we believe in and stand up for it.
Notable Quotes From The Book (16:33)
“You can’t have a bully without a victim.” – Larry Winget
The Credibility/Inspiration Of The Author (0:51)
I am known as the pit bull of personal development, that’s one of my registered trademarks. I don’t much believe in motivational speaking. I believe you can get much better results by irritating and that’s what I do. I have done my own television series on A&E. I’m a regular on several business television and national news shows. I have written six New York Times and Wall Street best sellers and I’ve spoken to over 400 of the Fortune 500 companies.
I’ve written all my books based on what I see going on in society and what I’ve realized is that we’ve become this nation of victims. We’ve become entitled, blame everyone else for why our life sucks, and what we need to do is grow a pair, take responsibility, and move on from there.
