Overview

So, what exactly does it mean to S.U.M.O.?

S.U.M.O. stands for Shut Up, Move On. We all long for success and enjoyment - unfortunately, we don't always get either of them. Have you ever thought that your own attitude could be what is holding you back?

S.U.M.O. shows that the way you think is a major factor in determining how your lives unfolds. It demonstrates that by taking responsibility for your life, you can fulfill your potential, seize opportunities, enjoy relationships, succeed at work and respond to adverse situations with a positive attitude.

S.U.M.O. encourages you to take an honest look at your life, remembering that it is never too late to change. We can all learn to dump the victim T-shirt, develop fruitier thinking and ditch the idea that 'whatever will be will be.'

S.U.M.O. offers heavyweight life coaching with a soft-centre. Weighing in with humour, insight, practical tips and personal anecdotes, it is a thought provoking - and possibly life-changing - read.

    Outstanding Book!!! SUMO stands out from the rest!

    Paul McGee delivers a book that doesn¿t come around very often. As I started to read, I couldn¿t put it down. His writing style is wonderful, and his story telling is impactful. Most self-help books primarily focus upon one area of concern. Paul helps inspire you to rise to whatever challenge life hands you. He does this by giving you insight into understanding yourself and others. When it comes to planning and having action in your life, Paul will help challenge your thought process. The Ditch Doris Day section was clever in discussing how you can take ownership of your future. To make the most of your life, learn the SUMO method. It is simple, straightforward and compelling. I found this book to be very valuable.
