Psychology of Success introduces the fundamental psychological principles of success—principles applicable to everyone regardless of age, background, or specialty.

Unlike many psychology books, Psychology of Success doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach.
Instead, it asks you to take an active role in defining what is right for you as an individual.
Psychology of Success calls on you to use self-awareness and critical thinking strategies to examine your dreams, values, interests, skills,
needs, identity, self-esteem, and relationships.
This will help you set and achieve goals that are in harmony with your personal vision of success.
