Overview

Josh Abrams is down on his luck. Despite his drive, business success has eluded him. His personal finances are a mess, his home life is strained, and his biggest competitor is snatching clients right out from under him.

Now, with the clock ticking, Josh needs to deliver results if he wants to keep his job. But to do it, he'll need to face seven difficult truths on his path to success.

Deliver the Unexpected is an inspiring fable structured around a series of false beliefsā€”seven myths that seem to mark the way to success, but in fact lead us further from it. Through a series of thought-provoking teachings that unveil each myth and replace it with a new insight or truth, Josh comes to understand the truth about his quest for success and discovers a new set of rules for reaching personal and business success.

The "success myths" of Deliver the Unexpected expose the pitfalls in many conventional approaches to achievement. They include:

  • 1. The Future Myth
  • 2. The Knowledge Myth
  • 3. The Failure Myth
  • 4. The Abundance Myth
  • 5. The Value Myth
  • 6. The Attraction Myth
  • 7. The Happiness Myth

For anyone struggling with finding their way in business and life, Deliver the Unexpected offers a new way forward. Start doing the right things for the right reasons, and rise to your true potential.
