    In Flight Plan, Brian Tracy reveals the real key ingredients that go into accomplishing any long-term, meaningful success.

    I've just finished reading a terrific and practical book, Flight Plan: The Real Secret of Success by Brian Tracy. Though there weren't many brand new lessons in it for me, it reinforced things I already knew and helped me see them in a different light.

    The author uses an interesting analogy for the process of setting goals in your life, one of an airplane trip from coast to coast, to demonstrate that to be successful you first need to determine where you're going and establish your "flight plan." From there, he carries the metaphor through the book to guide your thinking through the process of setting appropriate goals, getting moving on those goals, and the value of persistence.

    This book was full of so many good pointers and was very detailed. I appreciated that it was direct and to-the-point with very easy-to-implement application ideas and action steps. This is a guide to figuring out where you want to go and setting your plan to get there. He really gets into your head and helps you determine what's holding you back. In particular I enjoyed how he equated the little challenges we come up against in our journeys with turbulence!

    This really is one of the better books I've read on the power - and importance - of goal setting, mainly because it really has the "meat and potatoes" that make it actually useful and something you can apply.

    I can recommend this book to anyone who wants more success and less frustration in their lives. Whether you're looking for this kind of hands-on guidance or some motivation, in Flight Plan you'll find all the steps to get you on course and keep you on course.

    A 12-point plan on how to achieve your goals in life

    Many regard Brian Tracy as the paladin of platitudes, but that doesn't mean his message isn't worthwhile. The old verities ¿ Work hard! Think positive! You can achieve anything you put your mind to! ¿ remain eternally valid. That¿s why motivational authors like Tracy depend on them so heavily. Such venerable homilies continue to pack a punch. As Abraham Lincoln said, ¿God must love the common man, he made so many of them.¿ And, in contrast, author Philip Wylie said, ¿God must hate the common man, he made them so common.¿ In the end, everything comes down to personal taste and attitude. getAbstract believes the acid test for Tracy¿s books is: Do they help you? This particular offering warmly and accessibly charts a plan for taking hold of your life by using the metaphor of an airplane flight. See if it helps you take off.
