Just like the lonely princess in the fairy tale who was reluctant to lock lips with a warty frog and transform him into a handsome prince, something stops many of us short of attaining our dreams.

Tracy and Stein present a step-by-step plan that addresses the root causes of negativity, helps you uncover blocks that have become mental obstacles, and shows how you can transform them into stepping-stones to achieve your fullest potential.
On the jacket, you read that Brian Tracy is a best-selling author. That doesn't surprise me, as he's produced several books. I've listened to a couple of them in audiobook format, but I think this is the first print edition I've read.
Perhaps my existing familiarity with his work is why I feel a bit underwhelmed by this book.
I personally didn't find new wisdom in it, but then I've read hundreds of books in this genre and have reviewed a fraction of those. And my age probably has something to do with it. I think for the young person starting out or perhaps just hitting mid-career, this book can provide a framework for keeping one's eye on the proverbial North Star. That said, age doesn't always mean people grasp the lessons life has given them.
So regardless of your age, if you're in some kind of negative funk you would probably benefit from reading this book if you take the time to reflect on what the authors are saying.
One downside of this book is it consists more of retreaded tales from the self-help literature than of original material. For someone with little exposure to the genre, this isn't a problem thus my comment about the young person starting out.
And I suppose that means the authors are using proven ideas rather than re-inventing the wheel. People will pay six figures for an Ivy League education such that it is , and you can rest assured the syllabi, texts, and lectures are not completely rewritten each year.
What's original about this book is its theme. It centers on the story of the princess who kissed the frog. Said frog subsequently turned into a prince. Let's ignore the patrician overtones of that tale, and its underlying assumption that women's lives are meaningless without a man but if she finds a prince she will live happily ever after even though princes throughout history have been notoriously vain, self-centered, narcissistic, and out of touch with reality.
The point of the story, as used by the authors, is you need to face what's bothering you even if doing so makes you uncomfortable to the point of revulsion.
For many people, facing a particular cause of unhappiness and resolving it is like kissing a frog. Everything else in the book is a riff on that basic melody. It's a simple concept, but the execution is often difficult. Another problem with the book is some statements just are not true. In the inside jacket, for example, it says the authors quote Shakespeare with "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. Suppose you smash your thumb 17 times with a hammer.
As you examine the pulp that remains, you try thinking to yourself, "This is good! The point the authors intended to make was you can choose to let something get you down or not. May 18, Gabriela rated it really liked it. Great analogies and useful tips everyone should live by. Definitely a good book. Jan 21, Anirudh Taneja rated it liked it.
Somethings got me thinking. It mentioned, one chooses their own family and experiences they want to learn in their next life before being reincarnated. It's all about the learning journey. Fatigue does make cowards of us all, positive health habits are important, why don't we take care about ourselves until unless a certain part of a body needs an urgent care. Regular exercise and good food is an easy secret to do wonders. Talk about the thing you want in life all the time.
Successful people know Somethings got me thinking. Successful people know what they want and work hard towards getting it, on the other hand unsuccessful people know what they don't want.
My favorite quote from the book: You are designed for success and engineered for greatness Jan 14, Derek rated it really liked it. This book has a lot of good advice for getting your mind to focus on the positive things in your life. There are so many negative thoughts that enter our minds every day. Maybe a person in your life made you angry or you dislike your job, maybe the company you keep are the type of people that complain constantly. Whatever it is we have to block those thoughts from our mind and replace them with positive thoughts.
This book gives you a good foundation to do that. Take a look at the thoughts that This book has a lot of good advice for getting your mind to focus on the positive things in your life. Take a look at the thoughts that consume your mind every day. If you find your thoughts tend to be on the negative side pick up this book and give it a read. It will change the way you think. It was an amazing book. Though I have read many other self help books as well and this did not have to offer anything extraordinary that others didn't say, reading it reinforced the positivity that our mind needs to keep on growing and reaping goodness around.
It's like Brian Trafy said, our minds are like open grounds, if you don't deliberately plant a flower, weeds will grow automatically. If you don't deliberately feed good things in your mind, it will wander off aimlessly.
Loved the short, s It was an amazing book. Loved the short, simple and full of wisdom book that was this. Nov 06, Prabhleen Kaur rated it liked it. This book is concise and clear in explaining how to train our wonderful minds to achieve the best version of ourselves.
All the points explored here are what we already subconsciously know but do not pay much heed to. Did you know that at a time our mind can process only one thought? Coz I didn't. So, the simple idea is whenever there is a negative thought trying to occupy your mind just replace it with a happy thought or a happy memory and feed this line of thought. It is call "Law of Subs This book is concise and clear in explaining how to train our wonderful minds to achieve the best version of ourselves.
It is call "Law of Substitution". I believe that making this simple exercise a habit can really do wonders. Dec 19, Christina Onasis rated it it was amazing. The mark of maturity is to accept that we are not perfect.
Sometimes we make mistakes. Negativity over positivity. As the title "Kiss That Frog", Brian Tracy has great ways to turn negatives into positives in our life and work. Have a nice rea The mark of maturity is to accept that we are not perfect. Have a nice reading ; Wow, this short audio book contains a lot of info!
I learned quite a bit about loving myself, but mostly about how to forgive those who have done me wrong and move on in order to be a happier, less stressed out and angry person. There were very good tips to use every day and I really will try my best to put these into use, especially the ones about finding those people and situations in my life that are causing me problems with their negativity and moving away from all that. Aug 28, Eric rated it liked it. I had an hour to kill at a Barnes and Noble while my wife and son were shopping.
I found this on a remainder table. Having already read Eat That Frog earlier this year I,picked it along with a few other titles to browse while waiting. Like the first book it had some good suggestions. The earlier book was more practical for me. But this one was well-timed in terms of a pep talk that was useful as summer is ending and my next chapter waiting to be written. Brian Tracy delivers again. Not as good as my favorite by him, No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline , which is more well-structured and practical, but the message is the same: Practice it - it works, and it will make you feel better as well.
This audiobook sounds like it was recorded inside an aluminum can though. Brian Tracy es uno de los autores incluidos en 'Aprendiendo de los mejores' Alienta Editorial. Jul 26, Amirtha Shri rated it liked it. I found this book very useful.
Although the book iterates only one point - which is turning negative emotions to positive emotions - I liked how it made my re-think experiences. Situations just happen and it makes you feel bad because you think that way, you tend to associate an emotion to it. I guess the answer lies in convincing yourself that it was not as bad, or probably even good.
Aug 15, Sharon Lensky rated it it was ok. Rehash of some excellent basic guidelines of life to avoid getting sucked into a swamp created by negativity. Probably could put a bunch of them on a poster and be done with it. The book isn't very long, though. It had fluff I could have done without, but those who appreciate religious motivation may like it better.
A useful pinpoint guideline to relief stress in life and work , easy to understand and remember to change your mentality and thinking from negative to positive. I would read it when ever i face difficulty.
I really feel in some chapters as if the book is taking to me. Jun 24, Josip Nad rated it it was amazing. Short and practical. Very practical. A great book if you are wanting to start to change your life, with many practicle tips and tricks and a lot of easily-written theory.
It's also really quick! I highly recommend it. I enjoyed the book.. View 2 comments. Nice book. Feb 18, Divya rated it liked it. Letting go of those painful frogs had me thinking. This needs regular practice and mind games are the toughest to handle.
