Overview

Because Discipline, Focus and Excellence are not optional- in life or business!

The author takes you inside the mind of the Black Belt to develop confidence, courage, discipline, focus and leadership you need for excellence in personal & professional life.

Jim Bouchard combines the wisdom of the ancient masters with a bold new voice for our contemporary challenges. This is practical philosophy written in a blunt, often humorous and always accessible style by a guy who knows the streets, has tasted hardship and knows how to stay in the ring and keep punching!

This is not another self-help cookbook full of hollow promises of quick fixes, shortcuts and mind games; it's a gut-level examination of what it takes to reach your goals and how to develop the mental toughness it takes to keep going when times are tough.

You don't have to be a martial artist yourself or even know how to kick to put these powerful ideas to work for you. You only have to be open to changing the way you think- to Think Like a Black Belt!

I loved this book, motivation is something I need as we come to the end of the year. I need to set goals and get ready for something new. I added my favorite quotes. The leadership chapter was great, "Leadership is the ultimate expression of sharing." He quoted Patton: "A good leader takes responsibility when things go bad and shares the credit when things go right." So true, who do you know that does that? And do you want to be like them? I do. I agree with him on competition, it seems to have gotten a bad rap, but without it- we all fail. "Fair competition does not destroy; it makes both combatants stronger." What are we doing not letting our kids compete? My daughter was saying she was doing so well at flute she didn't need to practice as much, until the teacher moved her up a class and she was at the bottom. It made her mad, but then she started to work harder and practice more so she could be at the top of the class again. She is growing with the competition, not sitting complacent. She needs to be pushed like everyone else so she can find her true potential. "Complacent societies don't progress, they stagnate." Do we want to stagnate? I don't!!! But you can see that happening around you everyday. I agree with almost everything he says, we are responsible for ourselves, we cannot expect or wait for someone to pull us up by our boot straps. We need to put on our big boy or girl pants and get in the game. Sitting around waiting for someone to change your circumstance is wrong and not only that, its stupid, get off your lazy butt and do what you need to do to succeed. Be thankful for those who help you along the way, but remember it is you who is responsible for you. Not the government, not you parents and not society as a whole. "Freedom is ultimately your decision to accept personal responsibly for your own success and happiness. The greatest responsibility you have is to continually improve yourself, Make yourself better and you bring more value to the world." Again, I loved this book. What a wonderful world we would live in if everyone took responsibility for themselves. I plan to keep doing just that and to teach my children the same. You're the only one who can improve or change your situation, if you aren't happy then get out there and do something about it. It isn't education that makes people successful, its hard work and perseverance. If you have an education, its because you worked for it and deserve it and any success you gain from having it, but it doesn't change who you are. You are a motivated, hard working, disciplined, focused individual and that is what will win the race in the end. Now go get this book and read it, we all can use a little kick in the butt sometimes
