Want to consider an example of determination? Want to know how anyone could be anything that he wants to be? That's Ace Bowers' memoir The Mindset for you. From a $6 per hour earning janitor to becoming a millionaire living in one of the richest cities of the world is a terrific story to convey the strength of the never-changing belief. Imagine how well his status would have been when he chose the janitorial role. Life gives you the days of hopelessness which causes the fear of being useless, but it also puts some good ones and judges your attitude towards them. The book with each of its stories teaches us to identify those good days of our lives and turn the bad days into the good ones. The writer's belief in "good things happen when the time comes" and its applicability in his story will make you believe in it. The importance of family, friends, wife, children, and motivation is perfectly conveyed in the story.

Dreadful childhood and miserable schooling guided the writer almost half of his life. His memories of his parents fight after being drunk, his brother going to jail, his father's rusty car, his brother's ragged school bag given to him and his life dragging on limited paychecks refreshes his days of hardship. Bad days often lead to horrible decisions. Now cigarettes and obesity were directing his life. During his suffering, a piece of news came to him and he struggled to find it good or bad. It was the time when he decided to not live the life his parents lived, to give his children and wife everything they deserved and to never let them see the youth he survived. Success doesn't go with comfort. His 5 years of hard work and a consistent determination made him the man everyone wishes to be and gave him a story worth sharing.

This 93 pages narrative giving some major life lessons is exceptionally well structured. It has 10 chapters. Each chapter is about the important parts of his success and the role the other people played in it. It is a non-fiction work. The writer shared some of his secret and dark memories and informs us that the reason why he wrote the book is to allow his heart the feeling of lightness.

I liked how with every story the writer told us the moral it gives. His passion for never giving up is laudable. I liked how politely he confronted his parents and how his forgiving quality made him a better man. The significance of friendship is shown. It has no defects.

The language is easy to read. I didn't find any errors in it. There is no usage of profanity, and it is equally suitable for anyone to read. I think that the readers who need some motivation to achieve their goals should flip through the pages of this book. It is a very nice story of inspiration. The readers who enjoy books for fun can also find it intriguing.

I rate this wonderful book 4 out of 4 stars based on the fact that it has fulfilled its purpose of entertaining me. It is a masterpiece and the story in it is worth the stars.

I've also read this book. I liked the Noah effect. Thanks for the review.
We're all philosophers. When there's a tough choice to be made, when faced with the facts of birth,love or death or simply when thinking about what we want to do with our lives.
