thank you.

I enjoyed listening to this book. I started listening when I had a very long commute. i finished days later with only listening when I drove. I heard some things that kept me processing the message through out the day.

Fundamental book for achievers

Great book providing radically different perspective compared to media. It gave me a fresh view how to look on my life and what I want to achieve. I will never look at masters the same way and I want to become one!

Great read for martial artists

Loved the book just wasn't a big fan of the narrator. His voice seemed robotic to me.

I enjoyed the briefness and simplicity. Many familiar ideas if you’ve read about mastery in more recent books: Journey not destination, resistance, beginner’s mindset, and grit.

Good message, not a fan of the delivery

Resonated with general message but too much law of attraction and Chi talk at end.

Stay humble.

Lots of takeaways from this book. One is in my headline. Another is an observation Ive made my self as a teacher. Fear or looking like a fool can hinder you growth/potential. Ill definitely have to circle back to this book occassionally to get the most out of it. The narrarator did a really good job too!
