Still need to buy the book

This book is filled with a lot of wisdom but the book contains a lot of the chapter summaries and exercises and additional thoughts to further embed the concepts. Darren references “Go back to the book…” so it’s a little disappointing that despite buying the audio book, you still need the physical book to get the full value.

Wealth does not equal success

Is anybody else tired of hearing that success equates to your bank account? I feel this book convolutes success/happiness/wealth as if it's one package. I like the reminder that discipline and hardwork are the key to any fulfilling activity but this has zero to do with wealth.

Outdated way of thinking

I didn't finish it.. He talked a lot about himself and I found the points were outdated and a very old way to think about things. This may have to do with the fact he said his dad was a hard * but the book is not motivating. Don't get me wrong I'm in the military but not everyone is wired like that. He said at one point he partnered with someone, the guy took his 330k and then he said he didn't do anything because it was his own fault and that you need to take responsibility for everything including letting someone take your money? It kind of reminds me of the mindset "they were asking for it". He has a large ego as he was the one who read it and said he added back in all of the stuff that the editors cut out but all of those side comments should NOT have been in there they were useless info! Someone else said privileged and I agree!

Worth Listening to Multiple Times

Great reminder of how little thoughts and actions can lead to big results. The only coplaint I have is that at times it can sound a lot like an infomercial. The author starts by saying it's not a typical sales pitch on a concept but it feels like that at points, especially when you check out thr website after the fact. If you can ignore and look past the "salesy" component there is great content to learn from.

Condescension

He starts the book talking about how he doesn’t like how other high-performance authors brag about their millions, then he goes on to talk down to you… for the first 30 minutes at least which is how far I made it
