Become an overnight success. Ever notice how some people become overnight successes and wonder why you can’t be as successful? Well, let me let you in on a secret. Most of those people who became an “overnight success” have worked for years, getting the education they need, the experience they need, making plans, focusing on their priorities and quietly going about their business. Then the day came when they were ready, they saw their chance, they took action and presto, they were OVERNIGHT SUCCESSES. So if you want to be an overnight success too, keep your nose to the grindstone, get ready, and when you see your opportunity, TAKE ACTION, and you will be an overnight success as well.

Edward Smith, producer/host of a motivational/peak performance cable TV show, made the surprising discovery that many people are too busy to take the time to learn techniques that would make their lives more successful. He noted that many people who want to learn self-improvement techniques, in fact those that need it the most, find themselves bogged down in the theory part of self-help books and end up not being able to implement the techniques. Smith was able to take the key concepts in peak performance and reduce them to a series of quick tips that could be implemented at once. People can pick up and implement a proven technique to move their lives ahead in a matter of seconds, rather than having to read a whole book to get it. The book covers topics such as goal setting, getting motivated, staying positive and focused, handling fear, increasing your productivity and much more. Each page of the book has one tip, plus space to write what actions you will take based on the advice. One popular tip is "Act As If," which shows how to use your body to quickly fool your mind into being motivated. Contact Smith at email@example.com or (201) 568-0019.
Got 60 seconds, get success!
Unlike most self-help books, Sixty Seconds to Success delivers the
goods--solid, useable advice in down-to-earth terms. Author Ed Smith is the small
business mentor most harried entrepreneurs wish they had.
This Month's SPECIAL Review:
SIXTY SECONDS TO SUCCESS: Change Your Life In A Minute With These Quick Peak Performance Tips, by Edward W. Smith Bright Moment, Englewood, New Jersey (Paperback) 2004 http://www.brightmoment.com firstname.lastname@example.org
SIXTY SECONDS TO SUCCESS is a compilation of more than 100 tips collected from Bright Moments’ radio broadcasts and TV seminars with experts working in self-help fields of performance and behavioral change. The reader may select any of these tips to quickly jump start their day and, where desired, end each evening in order to focus and move forward with high-priority, sincerely-intended, actionable goals. One starts with daily objectives and writes down the action steps needed to reach an objective which increases the motivation to do more.
Each tip offers the reader a set of questions, and related options, that can be used to break-up negative moods, rigid routines, apathy, and "give-up" experiences by prompting one’s self to consider more valued alternatives and optimistic directives. The reader individualizes and rewards the taking of action steps, or combinations of steps, which, when repeated and rewarded consistently over time, can motivate and cement them into a pattern of perceived personal control and "success." With more success, one opens up one’s life to even more challenge, learning, meaning, and improved performance.
I especially enjoyed tips dealing with motivation: for examples, taking on BIG projects to stretch, explore, and visualize success; more risk taking; the need to improve one’s health; the necessity of skills to change bad habits (e.g., stop smoking, lose weight, etc.); the need to reach out for expert feedback and trustworthy help; the willingness to get out of one’s "comfort zone;" and other ways to improve mood, morale, and self daily, rather than seek perfection or wait, without working, for success and a consideration of questions like: 1) What did I do today that I must stop doing, in order to improve? 2) What didn’t I do today that I must start doing, in order to improve? 3) What did I do today that I should continue doing, in order to get better? 4) Did I take action on each of these questions?
SIXTY SECONDS TO SUCCESS is a timely, handy, self-paced work. The tips can be used by any one in a variety of proactive ways, settings, and circumstances. The psychological principles of learning, motivation, mood regulation and individual performance underscore the book’s face validity, general applicability, and the versatility of the tips.
If you take the tips to heart, do the personal work, and keep taking action, you will have more improvement and much "success" in the process. I highly recommend it!
