Book Review: The ACE Principle

       The Ace Principle was amazing book to read. Murali Murthy  shares some many great stories about successful professionals, athletes and what led to their success and how you can learn from it!

  He shared stories about Usain Bolt, Sylvester Stallone, Warren Buffet, Lady Gaga and Sir Richard Branson, after he does he talks about 3 areas. 

 1st When you ABSORB

  2nd What you COMPREHEND

  3rd  How you can EXCEL

  This gives you a great context on how to accept the material in your own life and how to make the strategies work.

Great insights from the book

  Building  Momentum

    " There comes a moment when you have to stop revving up the car and shove it into gear"

   How best can we illustrate the effect of momentum? Try pushing a stationary boulder up a moutainside. Now watch the same boulder tumble down at high speed, once it has been set in motion.

 High  achievers understand the secret of this momentum, They increase their rate of success by first creating the momentum and then simple riding on it. The right plan backed by the right momentum is always the way to accomplish our most daunting without fail.

   Your dream is like a GPS, follow it and it will surely and securely take you to your destination.

  Practice a positive self-talk daily. The most powerful words of all are the ones that you say to yourself everyday. Your first is to start speaking healthy words and then take healthy actions. As you go about your day's activities, be conscious of how you are talking to yourself in your mind. Find aspects of your day that you can genuinely and positively comment on.

 Be specific and speak out loud. The more specific you are, the less likely you will counter your positive comment with a negative rejoinder.

   Remember Dr. Emile Coue's famous matra:

   "Day by day, in every way, I am becoming better and better"

    "Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching?"
   Dennis and Wendy Mannering

  Leaders always set a positive tone and give well-defined direction. They know they must simplify, clarify, give advance notice and create milestones and schedules to help those who follow them to understand what needs to be done, why it needs to be done, how to do it and when it must be completed.
