Debby Bright centres her self-enhancement teachings on individual and team development. She focuses on “how" to achieve maximum developmental skills and the attitudes needed to become a pro-achiever. Unlike most other self-help books I have read, Debby Bright based her teachings in The Pro-Achievement Principle on progressive productivity instead of a list of “what" to achieve. As we read through the course of this “BIZLET", the author differentiates the pro-achiever's traits from the “Negativist" , “Entitlist” and the “Superficial-optimists". She emphasizes her points through numerous examples and real life instances.
This book explains the distinctions between personal responsibility and personal responsibleness. The author later went ahead to attribute the latter trait to pro-achievers.
Debby Bright demonstrates how pro-achievers, though go-getters and mission accomplishers, also understand that everything cannot be perfect. She quoted, “pro-achievers are not perfectionists".
Personally, I like this book because it relates to my struggle with consistency. When the author analysed how some traits and attitudes are accomplished through regular practice, I felt like I was directly spoken to. More so, it explains why I get misunderstood by so many people because of my mood, and it taught me how to go through the day on a lighter mood. I learnt that I should progress even if things are not really going great.
Another thing I like about this book is its organization. Each new chapter seems connected with the previous chapter, so it made it easy for me to link the explanations on one chapter with another. This led to a great understanding of this book.
I recommend this book to anyone out there who wishes to make a significant improvement in their lifestyle and the society at large. Business personnels like human resource workers and managers would be able to build responsible and honest teammates after reading this book. Also, this book is for leaders who wish to strengthen their morality and integrity, which would help them to be more accountable to the people they are leading.
There are few errors in this book. The use of “this" to replace “that" or the replacement of “as" with “is", which may have happened when typing, caught my attention. Apart from these errors, I have no problem with the book. I love the way simple words were used to explain complex ideas. It made the author's intentions very easy to figure out. This book seems to have been professionally edited because no other error was found apart from the ones mentioned above. With this last thought, I am giving the book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars.
