The Potential Principle by Mark Sanborn

James Joyce wrote that: 'A man's errors are his portals of discovery'.  This inspiring book based on the Potential Matrix aims to show you how to use your mistakes to improve and how to decide what you need to do to develop a 'growth' mindset and not let disappointments weigh you down. As he writes, highly successful people are actually disappointed even more often than others. 'They just don't let disappointments bother them'.

Sanborn includes so much useful information in this book that it's hard to remember. I suggest that you keep a notebook beside you while reading it. He writes about the importance of finding purpose and thinking and evaluating . I especially likes his chapter on finding a quiet place to think and how to spot errors in thinking and the right way to focus.

He also writes about performance, and gives examples of how successful people improved their preparation. I liked the story of how he decided to become a better public speaker from a very young age and did everything that he could to achieve his goal.  This leads to the importance of discipline...

This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to advance in his or her career.

I received this free ebook from Book Look Bloggers in return for an honest review.
