I like the author's definition of success as "getting better at something, improving yourself, or simply feeling better about yourself." I also liked the section on controlling your thoughts which then controls your feelings and emotions. Another thing that inspired me was to be "prepared for an opportunity to be successful in taking advantage of it." This reminds me to be actively ready for opportunities, so when they do come, I am ready to take action.

I found this book to be motivational. It inspired me not to give up on my dreams. It challenged me to try harder and not be afraid to take risks.

The author advises not to stress too much about "success" as it is subjective and I think that makes sense. What may seem like a success to me, may not be much of an achievement for others. Which is why I should just focus on my own goals and try to reach it without having to feel pressured to reach it right away.

This book inspired me to always be myself. It encouraged me not to blame other people for my problems.
