Overview

"Foreword by Nido Qubein, Chairman, Great Harvest Bread Company, Founder, National Speakers Association Foundation

Do you seek greater success? In some way or another, we all do. You may crave achievement in your career or business, or wish for financial freedom. Perhaps you long for stronger personal and family relationships, or yearn for a deeper sense of spirituality.

There may be as many definitions of success as there are people who seek it, but there are certain core human attributes that assist us on our quest for happiness. Personal Brilliance is written to help you maximize your own Awareness, Curiosity, Focus, and Initiative, those powerful traits we all have but too often ignore.

If you’re like most people, you rely on the four traits primarily in response to specific situations or challenges. You’re overwhelmed at work, for example, so you Focus and apply extra Initiative to get the job done. Or you’re in an unfamiliar setting, so your Awareness and Curiosity are naturally heightened.

But to turn these attributes into powerful success tools, you’ve got to use them all the time — so that they become “habits of the mind.” How do you do it? Author Jim Canterucci offers easy, practical, and fun exercises to incorporate into daily routines. Some require you to ask questions of yourself, or make simple alterations to gain a new perspective. Others will have you pretending or playing a role, while still others let you develop new interests and knowledge.

By constantly challenging your mind to explore new subjects and new perspectives, you intensify and strengthen the four traits every day. Just as physical exercise gives you more energy, solid habits of the mind fortify you mentally and emotionally, leaving you better equipped to achieve whatever you desire.

Personal Brilliance gives you dozens of these proven techniques to help you break through the barriers that stop you from being and achieving your personal best in all areas of your life. The book also recounts inspiring stories of people who have dramatically improved their lives and made significant differences in their communities, families, and businesses.

You’ve already got much of what it takes to succeed on your terms, whatever those terms may be. Personal Brilliance will help you build on your natural characteristics to become the person and achieve the goals you’ve always envisioned."
