After I finished reading Our Children Are Watching, I was eager to re-read my next book, The Joy of Success. I sat on my bed in tears, reading page after page... delighted that I had spent three years writing about the profound experiences I'd had in pursuit of these 10 Success Skills... The Technology of Success.I began my career as a researcher at the National Institutes of Health. After months studying illness and dysfunction, I kept waking up in the night wondering what we could learn if we started studying highly successful, healthy individuals as well! Did they have skills the rest of us didn't? Could I find a way to teach their Success Skills to those who were missing or misusing one or more?Inspired, weeks later I stood up in one of our prestigious weekly conferences and proposed my research! But instead of becoming excited, my colleagues laughed. Yes, they all laughed. Red-faced I had a life-changing decision to make. Would I agree with them that my idea was unworthy of being taken seriously? Or would I agree with myself and spend my career studying outstanding individuals and teams!For the next 20 years, in the background of my life as a single mother raising two amazing, beautiful, highly successful daughters, I did just that, shadowing outstanding individuals and teams... heads of corporations, entrepreneurs, inventors, actors, artists, sports professionals... top notch, exciting, contributing members of society instead of ill and dysfunctional ones! And I discovered 10 Success Skills they were using consistently, even though they didn't know it. The skills that lead to The Joy of Success.
Do you struggle to feel successful?This is the first book in a series about learning what success is and how anyone can achieve it. It shows you how you first have to get to square one to be successful. We have to learn to self-acknowledge our daily successes that may seem small, but combined give us the confidence to be successful overall. Long-term goals are reached by daily little successful steps. Success is also pruning what we don’t really need – don’t try to do it all - success is sometimes saying no. The book is laid out in “vignettes” – an idea is presented then followed by a life example. This makes it easy to read in stages as you have time – like a daily devotional. Each skill chapter ends with a summary of the skills revealed in that chapter as a reminder for you to reflect on. This book takes you through the process step by step – not an overnight fix, but a life style change that will happen slowly over time. This book shows you how to do this even when others might be trying to undermine you. I liked the section on communication – to me this is the biggest roadblock to anyone’s success. I recommend reading this book from start to finish, but then using it as a tool as you begin to transform your own life – as you stumble along the way you can go back and re-read the section that you are finding difficult. I received this book from BookFun.org in exchange for my honest review
This is the kind of author / topic that I love to take “bite size” portions and really process / chew on for awhile before going back for more. I was drawn in with the opener showcasing how Susan thinks: her focus of spotlighting the exceptionally successful to determine common ground to their diverse successes.I agree with the main thrust, that successful people are laser intentional and “all in” with their goals, that they are leaders and masters at visualizing their end-game to the point of others buying into their passion.The Joy of Success was well written and a great chew! I like reading to see through someone else’s perspective. I enjoyed reading Susan Ford Collins for the first time. I look forward to applying the 3 gears, which I believe is a super beneficial concept. I’ll pass on the “holograph” concept. God is intricately involved in the details of our lives because He is so “for us.” Our dreams are always more than we can accomplish on our own, if we take the time to pursue God for his advise/His view. I am looking forward to the next two books in this series.I received a complimentary book from The Book Club Network at bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
The writing was a bit confusing at times, the author would introduce characters for each story then switch to a different set and then a few chapters later refer back to the first introduced characters.Overall, the author underlines the beliefs of all success thinkers of do not accept defeat, try your best and do what you want and things will work out somehow.
This is book is very up lifting. The author gives very easy examples of how to turn daily situations that tangle you up short and long term, into sucesses. She incorporates many proven theories of positive thinking,forgiveness, list making and ect... One technique I particularly liked was the making of a daily success file for yourself.
I loved this book. It was easy to read and the stories were interesting. I learned some success skills that I need to improve upon as well as others that I do well. The book is organized well and it is a pleasure to read.
