Overall the book is a collection of short stories that emphasize the point of the 7 Steps to greatness strategy. The book however fails very hard on topics of drugs and spirituality. It’s so over the top wrong, that the book cannot be recommended without a warning.
The strategy however sounds quite good.
The book first discusses the losers limp. Essentially that some kind of failure in the past is hindering you to try and achieve great things in the future. Another aspect is “garbage think” - a lot of negativity that is floating in our heads. That should not be there.
The steps to greatness are:
- Relationship with others
No one on earth can make you feel inferior without your permission
Twelve steps to improve your self image:
- Wear good clothing. What you wear on the outside has an impact on how you feel.
- “walk proud” - Look up when you walk. have good posture

- Listen to the great minds of the time
- Success attracts success. Do something small where you know you will succeed and build upon that.
- Smile and compliment people

Without goals you cannot hit the target.

- Goals must be specific
Believe that you can actually achieve the goal. You will always pursue multiple goals at the same time.
You have Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Personal, Family, career and Financial Goals.
Organize your goals to figure out which goals are the most important for you.
Identify Obstacles that stand in your way to achieve your goals. If you know the obstacle. It makes it easer to overcome the Obstacle. Have Confidence that you will overcome the obstacle.

No If - You must believe that you will get to your goal - no ifs.
