I have actually read it before when it first released but never followed through with the principles. Am I the only one that does that?
This go around I am reading to apply, but wanted to share some of the bigger insights with you all.
Since I pretty much read as my hobby, I will read, summarize, and save you time. Now that’s what we call a Win-Win!
So here are Hyatt’s six ways to find the courage to make “wow” happen:
Take a stand for greatness.
Connect with the original vision.
Remind yourself what is at stake.
Listen to your heart.
Seems so simple right? Well Hyatt goes into creative depth on these points to not only motivate but to provide guru-like advice. Know this, I do not bestow the Guru title on anyone, but this book is Michael Hyatt’s journey from leaving a CEO job to become a blogger, podcaster, and speaker. He is a personal brand genius because he tried ideas, through out the junk and honed in on the principles that worked.
For example, “Remind yourself what is at stake,” (3) is about knowing that you will fail, you will get frustrated, and you will want to quit. Personal branding and getting your ideas out in the world is what is at stake. The world needs your ideas, your council, and your charisma. There are people out there that only you can inspire and reach. What’s at stake is you! You matter. Preserve!
People want to be wowed. People want to hear the story of personal courage. Speak up, be stubborn, and take a stand for what is great.We often hear people say, Bring it! I like to say, Bring WOW! @MichaelHyatt feel free to quote me! Click To Tweet
So I will continue to post fun ideas from Hyatt’s book and mix my thoughts in there, but I highly suggest you get a copy and get your message…your WOW…out there into the world that needs it!
Bring your WOW and get noticed in this noisy world!
