Reviews - What do customers think about Success Is Not An Accident?
Modish Layout for Motivational Tips Mar 16, 2007
Newberry serves up ideas that are familiar in the business-motivational literature. His innovation is using sidebars to create the bite-size info-chunks that are so popular these days. If you haven't read too much of this kind of high-energy pump-you-up motivational material, Newberry may be for you. I like his emphasis on taking responsibility for one's choices; one's life, after all, eventually turns out to be the sum total of what one did, not what one thought, dreamed, and felt.
EXCELLENT!! Feb 17, 2007
This is a GREAT book...I will read and re-read and purchase several copies to give to others...especially to people who are wandering or struggling with what do with their lives...when I give them the book I will be telling them that they have to read just the first 2 chapters...then decide. For those that feel they are already on a good track it's a great refresher and a great way to stay focused - plus lots of good ideas to move you along the path to success!
Great for goal-setting Jan 23, 2007
Terrific book for learning how to set goals and change your thinking in order to become more successful.
mandatory reading for amibitious people Jun 16, 2005
This book is extremely effective. I can't focus on my goal if I don't even know what I want. That is where this book helped me. It helped me get clear about my goals, and it helped me build momentum in working toward my goals. I have also read many many self help and business success books, and this one is at the top of my list. It is down to earth and practical, uses normal language that anyone with any level of education can easily understand.
If you are truly seeking to make a positive change (of any nature) in your life, this book is truly an asset to you.
Don't let the goofy cover turn you off... actually, in a sea of self-help books, it was the goofy cover that caught my attention. I am so glad it did.
Though not all these concepts were new to me, the book was still valuable. It expanded upon knowlege I had as well as provided me with many new tools. His instructions are written in broad enough terms that their application may be universal. I am in recovery from a serious illness and I am able to use these concepts as much for the purposes of completing a long and depressing recovery as for the purposes of planning financial security.
Despite the suit and tie and very rigid appearance of Tommy Newberry on the cover, there is a metaphysical element to this book that really appeals to me. Another reviewer wrote that this book is just a rehash of what he already knew... perhaps. However, I know very few people who practice cognitive discipline to bring about prosperity. These concepts may be as old as time, but in our distraction-addicted, reactionary society the culture of victimization has eclipsed the efficacy of personal-responsibility and self-discipline. Most of us have forgotten how easy it is to better ourselves.
I love this book so much. I have given copies to my loved ones.
