    I don't typically read self-improvement drivel - it bores me to tears and drives me crazy that people (more cunning than me) are able to package this excrement between shiny covers and make enough cabbage to buy that nice cabin on the ski mountain...

The key here is that you have to adjust your expectations and go into it know what you're getting. For me, it's inspirational, sort of the like the chest-pounding cheerfest that car salesmen go through each morning. But this one's different in that it admits what it is - it doesn't try to be anything it's not, and I respect that. And Sharma's got some pretty salient wisdom sprinkled throughout, kept real by his common life trials and circumstances. I actually carry this one in my laptop bag every day.

    3.4/5 Finally it's over!! Don't get me wrong, I liked this book at the beginning because it had great lessons and kept me motivated, but it gets boring with each page mainly because there is so much repition, narating and sometimes meaningless lessons (to me). Maybe if it was in a video I would like it more because of the impact of the delivery, or maybe it was just me that didn't felt motivated nor wanted to be inspired (happens most of the time). 3.4/5 Finally it's over!!

    It's late at night today and I just finished reading this great master piece of book which claims to be a Greatness Guide. Is it really a greatness guide? Find out below. It's raining heavily and the electric poles have been dislodged right from their roots and the city I live is in blackout. Inverters squealing and crying out of battery.

Is it really a greatness guide? Find out below. It's raining heavily and the electric poles have been dislodged right from their roots and the city I live is in blackout. Inverters squealing and crying out of battery. I just put my hands in a drawer expecting a small $5 Flash light while I accidentally come across this book that I purchased maybe 6~8 months ago but never got a chance to read. So I lounge on my couch and I read this entire book, from page 1 to 222 in a tiny, dim flash light. (Believe it) Well the first book I've ever read was "Discover your destiny with the monk who sold his Ferrari" and surprisingly it was by this same Author "Robin Sharma". I proudly claim ,that was the book which changed my life and perception forever. Ever since then, I've been exploring Sharma's blogs, podcast ,vlogs and books. They leave me better than I everytime come across them. Coming to this book "Greatness Guide". Just like his previous book "Who Will Cry When You Die? ", This book too contains life transforming, Game Changing and highly inspiring 101 lessons by Mr. Robin Sharma. Will it really make you Great? I'll simplify the best I can. As his favorite quote reads, "Awareness Precedes Change and Change Precedes Results", this book may not make you great instantly but Hey! No book can do that. What the readers shall really expect from "Greatness Guide" is, this book will push your awareness dilemma, make you introvert, and really make you sit at your study and give a deep thought about your current life conditions and the path to your dreams. As you think more and more about your current acts, status, values, Beliefs, Vision, Your awareness develops. Your awareness breeds Choices. With better choices, You make better decisions. With better decisions, Things start to evolve and change. And with change, You realize your highest results and dreams. Well, that's the way how it's intended to work and if you really give your life a deep thought, It's a precious gift that you'll ever own. You can be the next Michael Angelo, The Picasso, The next Richard Branson or whoever you may idol to be at your own craft. Robin Sharma's clients are world class entrepreneurs, NASA, FedEx and billionaire organizations, So the man really knows what he's talking about. The book also enriches with brilliant quotes by the masters and world class people ever lived and walked the surface of earth. If You are into self help books and really wanting to elevate the results you've been getting, being world class at your craft, attaining mastery, I do recommend reading this book at some point of your life (the sooner, the better). This book shows every job is a chance to express your dreams. So make this year your absolute best. Out perform your competitors and while the world is drown in recession, Make this year your absolute best year by following Sharma's great 101 lessons and tips. Hope you have a good time uplifting and elevating your life as well as the lives you come across. This world is a beautiful place and this is the perfect time to be world class at your business, World Class at your life. Be grateful, Be Healthy and Lead Without A Title. Books to be considered by same author:- 1. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. 2. Discover Your Destiny. 3. Leadership Wisdom. 4. Lead without a title. http://www.amazon.com/review/R5N7DQBB...

    In this book, Robin Sharma has vividly explained the major premises of successful life in simple and brief statements. There are many crisp ideas in this book that are capable of creating indelible positive impressions in reader's mind. The author's powerful statements have been strengthened in many places by very relevant quotes from great men. For example, here is one from Martin Luther King Jr: If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or In this book, Robin Sharma has vividly explained the major premises of successful life in simple and brief statements.

He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, "Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.". Recommending cultivation of reading habit the author says: "The hand that puts down a great book will never be the same." This is an appropriate comment for this book too.

    I have to admit, I hated this book. I found it to be obnoxious, condescending, and of very little value. The chapters were 2 to 3 pages long and in essence resulted in the author's random ramblings on what he consistently pointed out to us were "Big Ideas." or "Important Points" (he actually wrote out these two word sentences over and over again to ensure we realized how important his messages were).

    I picked it up right after i finished reading zero to one. Now those who have read zero to one must be knowing its a heavy book so I had my mind in a heavy read zone. After I started reading it I realised it doesn’t give me huge huge business lessons but instead it teaches me how to live my life on daily basis. No greatness tactics are being told in this book but importance of little things like wake up early, respect your body, follow your passion, having a quality sleep, cherishing your family I picked it up right after i finished reading zero to one. Now those who have read zero to one must be knowing its a heavy book so I had my mind in a heavy read zone.

No greatness tactics are being told in this book but importance of little things like wake up early, respect your body, follow your passion, having a quality sleep, cherishing your family etc. There are chapters on the following Principle of business Secret to sales Types of wealth Reasons to set goals Relationship building All the above chapters telling us more or less things that we already know. This book talks more about way of living rather than more knowledge, and may be i was expecting more knowledge. Most of his chapters come from what he was thinking while he was on flight, while he was playing with his kids while he was dropping off his kids at school. You can skip chapters just by reading the title. This book was not that thought provoking for me. May be it can work for some people but it did not work for me. But the language used by the author reflected his enthusiasm about life. This was the best part of the book that you could feel the energy through his words and how much he appreciates his life everyday.

    Recommended by my friend on Twitter, this book is very inspiring. I listened to Sharma on the audiotapes and read the book, simultaneously. I liked the fact that the chapters are short, and I made notes of many concise ideas, such as "Where your focus goes your energy flows." The reason I'm not giving it more than three stars is that Sharma becomes really annoying when he starts talking about his personal stories; he seems to exaggerate the emotional part of these tales including his gushing ove Recommended by my friend on Twitter, this book is very inspiring.

    Easy read with lots of great ideas in small chunks. Robin constantly reminded me to define my goal and pursue it. Having no goal lets me live with awareness in variety. Goal will sharpen my focus on one thing and let me achieve it, while I may lose sight of other things that are happening. What is my true calling? It's really about time I be honest with myself.

    Robin shares short yet inspiring stories from his life as a parent, traveler, writer and coach. Easy to digest lessons will help you to understand how little things can lead to greatness. Lacks facts and deeper explanation of certain principles and theories.

    Oh God! I ran across this book by pure boredom while I was waiting for my husband to conclude one his business meetings with a client in Argentina. I was with my daughters in one of the many wonderful libraries in the city of Buenos Aires when the simple white covered book with a red star right on the center caught my attention. This was about 2 years ago. I read, “EXITO, UNA GUIA EXTRAORDINARIA” (don’t know the title in English, but it means SUCCESS, A GUIDE TO AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE by the Auth Oh God! I ran across this book by pure boredom while I was waiting for my husband to conclude one his business meetings with a client in Argentina. I was with my daughters in one of the many wonderful libraries in the city of Buenos Aires when the simple white covered book with a red star right on the center caught my attention. This was about 2 years ago. I read, “EXITO, UNA GUIA EXTRAORDINARIA” (don’t know the title in English, but it means SUCCESS, A GUIDE TO AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE by the Author of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (on my list of books to be read, BTW). I noticed this book was hugged by a white matte band, about 3” wide, with a phrase by Paulo Coelho, "Los libros de Robin Sharma estan ayudando a que personas de todo el mundo disfruten de una vida mejor"or The books by Robin Sharma are helping people around the world to enjoy a better life. Hmm! Interesting. And so I bought it. But it wasn't until last week that I actually was able to pick it up and start reading it. (I was reading The Shack, but that book had been borrowed from the public library by my Dad and we had to return it. I should remember to order it. It's worth it). Here are some of the lines that I just had to highlight and share with you: 1) "Casi siempre soy el primero en visitar los lugares que me dan miedo y a hacer las cosas que me incomodan" Most of the time, I am the first one to visit those places I fear and to do the things that make me uncomfortable. 2) “No soy un guru....durante una sesion de firmas que hice en una libreria de Bangalore...se me acerco un hombre que me oyo decir que no soy un guru y me pregunto por que me molestaba que me llamaran guru y me explico que 'Gu' en sanscrito significa "oscuridad" y 'Ru' quiere decir "dispersar", de modo que la palabra "guru" se refiere solamente a alguien que despeja las tinieblas y aporta mas luz.” I am no Guru…during a book signing session at a book store in Bangalore…there was a man who approached me when he heard me say that I’m not a guru and he asked me why it bothered me so much? He then explained that ‘Gu’ in Sanskrit means ‘darkness’ and ‘Ru’ means ‘to spread’. Hence, the word ‘guru’ only refers to a person who clears up darkness and brings in more light.” 3)"Todos los dias, la vida te abrira pequenas ventanas en forma de oportunidad. Tu destino quedara a la postre definido por como respondas a dichas oportunidades". “Each day, ife opens small windows in the form of opportunities. Your destiny will actually be the result of how you respond to such opportunities.” 4) One of Sharma's clients, a high executive at a Puerto Rican bank, Richard Carrion, said," Nada hace fracasar tanto como el exito" or “Nothing makes you fail as much as success itself.” 5) "Cuanto mas exito tengas tu o tu empresa, mas humilde y mas atento con tus clientes debes mostrarte". The more success you and your company have, the more humble and kinder you must be with your clients. 6) "Si un hombre esta llamado a barrer las calles deberia barrer las calles igual que pintaba Miguel Angel, componia Beethoven o escribia Shakespeare". If a man’s call is to go clean up the streets , he should do the job as good as Michale Angelo; with Beethoven’s talent, and as inspired as Shakespeare.” 7) Pequenas decisiones conducen - con el tiempo- a grandes consecuencias. No existen los dias poco importantes". Small decisions lead, with time, to great consequences. There is no such thing as an unimportant day. 7) "Leer un buen libro es como tener una conversacion con su autor". Reading a good book feels as if you are having a conversation directly with the author. 8) "La mano que cierra un buen libro nunca sera la misma que lo abrio". The hand that opens a good book will never be the same one as that one that opened it. 9) "Saber leer y no leer es casi lo mismo que no saber leer". Knowing how to read and not to read is the same as not knowing how to read or being illiterate. 10) "El fracaso es el precio de la grandeza. El fracaso es el ingrediente imprescindible de cualquier logro importante". Failure is the price of greatness. Failure is the necessary ingredient needed for any significant accomplishment. 11) "Si sigues viviendo como has vivido siempre, obtendras lo que has obtenido siempre". If you continue to live as you have always lived, you will only receive what you have always received. 12) "El fracaso es solo parte del proceso que conduce a la excelencia". Failure is only part of the process that leads to excellence. 13) "La gente de mas exito del mundo ha tenido mas fracasos que la gente normal". The most successful people in the world are those who have had a higher rate of failure than normal people. 14) "Dentro de veinte anos lamentaras mucho mas las cosas que dejaste de hacer que las que hiciste", Mark Twain. “In twenty years, you will regret much more the things that you didn’t do than the things you did," Mark Twain. 15) "La vida esta llena de bienes materiales que hacen mas placentero nuestro viaje. No hay que sentirse culpable por disfrutar de ellos. Pero, por favor, no olvides esos sencillos pero preciosos tesoros que te acompanan por el camino para que los disfrutes, como las relaciones personales profundas, dar lo mejor de ti en un trabajo que te guste o explorar el mundo y disfrutar de las maravillas de la naturalea como una puesta de sol o una luna llena en un ciclo estrellado". Life is full of material goods that make our journey more bearable. There is no reason to feel guilty for that. But, please, don’t forget those simple but precious treasures that accompany you through your life path so you can enjoy it more. These are keeping solid personal relationships, offering your best at a job you like, or exploring the world and enjoying the wonders of nature such as the sun rise or a full moon in a starred sky. And with these wise words in English and Spanish (doesn’t matter, they carry the same meaning) from Robin’s book, I shall leave you …for now. Meditate on them and proceed toward a better life. Laura

No new achievements unlocked? Spirits needs to be rekindled? Lack of motivations? Or business going down? Then this book is for you! Before you go down the hill, hold up, steady yourself up and give this book a try!

And ya, be mindful of your reading habits, as each chapter starts and ends ASAP. Chances are there that you will drive yourself to complete the book in one or two sittings. However, it is only when you read, re-read, chapter by chapter, line by line, and word by word that you get to understand that the book is an absolute stunner - a fodder for personal and professional growth. In short, AN INSPIRATIONAL POWERHOUSE, AN ABSOLUTE FOOD FOR THOUGHT. It is interesting to note that all the three books of Robin:“The Greatness Guide-Part I,” “The Greatness Guide-Part II,” and the “Who Will Cry When You Die,” hinges around same philosophies and rationales. Being a Leadership Guru, I believe this is a conscious endeavor by Robin to drum the same message again and again into our forgetful, failing, human minds. Nonetheless, all the three books are interesting to read, inspirational, and full of energy. Somehow I found this book ‘The Greatness Guide” more inspiring than Robin’s debut book, ”The Monk who sold his Ferrari”. Undoubtedly, the debut book received rare reviews and was a huge commercial success worldwide, but the succinct, yet strikingly powerful style of “The Greatness Guide,” is what it makes it a compelling read. And i am sure, this book will strike a perfect chord with his ardent fans and needless to say, will expand his admirer base. Say, for instance, Commit to First Class, Be a Rock Star at Work, Drink Coffee with Gandhi, Be a Merchant of Wow, Make a Dent in the Universe, Be Wise Early Rise, How to Live for Ever, etc., are some of the chapters that will probably leave a lasting impression on the minds of readers. Thoughts are very well laid-out and ideas doled out can be easily put into practice. FAVORITE QUOTES "To earn more, learn more. Out-read your competition. Out-study them. Out-improve them. Out-succeed them". "Robin, be so knowledgeable, competent and brilliant at what you do that this firm can't run without you. Become indispensable". Investing in learning and getting your skills to world class is the smartest investment you'll ever make. Master your craft and you'll get to greatness. We'll all be dust before you know it. So live your potential now. Chinese saying : "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. But the second time is today". Imagine that today is the last day of your life and you are lying on your deathbed. Then ask yourself: Did I dream richly? Did I live fully? Did I learn to let go? Did I love well? Did I tread lightly on the earth and leave it better than I found it? Nothing Fails Like Success. Success actually breeds complacency, inefficiency and -worst of all- arrogance. Because the moment you stop doing the very things that got you to the top of the mountain is the very moment you begin slide down to the valley When you're making money and good margins, you tend to get sloppy. "I'm sorry for you; your lives have been so easy. You can't play great music unless your heart's been broken. Focus plus daily improvement plus time equals genius. Understand that formula deeply and your life will never be the same. Push the envelope. Refuse to accept anything remotely close to mediocrity. Commit to excellence. Become massively innovative and wear your passion on your sleeve.

Some ideas from this book stayed with me is that, the challenges and obstacles in life is much needed to make your life much more richer, and being able to overcome those difficulties would make your life much more rewarding. As life that is lived by fear and mediocricity would find their life not worth living for, as too many people life their life, as in "what if" I have done that, "what if" I have been brave to face that challenge, and life a total regret by end of their life. Why books matters, as when you read books from around the world, it would help you think on what are your true values and believe that you stand for, and also open your mind to the possibilities of life that could offer you, and also if act an as educational platform about the success that people have achieved and make you have that conviction that you can achieve it too. I also like the idea that when every month, week or so, you may write the story of your life, imagine the ideal life you want and write down the goals and actions that you are going to do, to achieve that. Also writing an Obituary for yourself, would also keep you check in balance on how you should life your life and how would like yourself to be perceived as. All in all, always eat well, live well, exercise and also visit and immerse yourself with nature as much as you can so that mind, body and nature can be balanced in harmony. What really impact me, if I were to ask three philosophical qn's every night. It would be: Why are you here? Where are you going? and Why is it important to go there? Because a journey without a plan or a goal would bring you no where. But with a plan and purpose can bring you greater heights.

    I discovered Robin Sharma on YouTube. I have been on a personal development/self-help kick for some time now, trying to steadily consume good, motivating information so I don't backslide into the person I was six months ago. I was watching a video of some very motivating, albeit amateur life coach, when I saw a link to a Sharma video titled "How to be an early riser" or something similar. He talks about what he calls the "5 o'clock club" or "5 am club" and it just reiterated what I already knew I discovered Robin Sharma on YouTube.

He talks about what he calls the "5 o'clock club" or "5 am club" and it just reiterated what I already knew to be true about waking up earlier to jump start your day. Admittedly, I am not a member of the "5 am club" yet, but I am a sporadic "6 am club" member, and for now, that's just fine by me. Anyway, the point is I liked the video, I watched more of his videos, including one about mastery that got me to start writing semi-regularly, and eventually bought this book of his. It's basically exactly what I expected, a quick read filled with not so profound but good ideas to help improve your life. It didn't blow my socks off or anything, and much of it is common sense, but I think the guy is truly trying to help people, because he's a good person. And, common sense or not, sometimes people just need to hear or in this case read some good ideas that come from a place of good intentions. Because having common sense doesn't mean you have the willpower to use it, and this book can help with that. I think this guy is just getting warmed up. Kudos.

    The price of discipline is always less than the pain of regret Your schedule is the best barometer for what you truly value and believe to be important. There will be plenty of time to sleep when you are dead ~Benjamin Franklin. One of the things I've learned from NASA is that the space shuttle uses more fuel during the first few minutes after lift off than it consumes during its entire trip around the globe. Why? Because, initially, it needs to overcome the tremendous pull of gravity.

    I could not read this in one go. Read about 50 pages one day and then after a long break finished the rest in a day. So I actually don't remember how the first part was but I can tell you from what I remember. This book felt more like an intro to his speeches. I felt like there isn't as much information in the book as I expected it to be there and I felt like I'll have to listen to his talks to get further explanations on each chapter. Like this book is a brochure to his talk sessions. Something I could not read this in one go. Read about 50 pages one day and then after a long break finished the rest in a day.

From tomorrow I am starting to write my journal and set goals in my life. I would read this book again after a while to keep me reminded of those important points.

    Reading is a pretty ordinary word for this book. The contents are by no means a surprise to any one. Itz all we know but still forget to recap and practise. I have been deliberately going pretty slow on this book and practising the things being dealt with in this book. Any body who wants to improve their life pattern and are proactive in trying to find a guide would simply love this book.

Would recommend this book to all my friends.
