Reseña del editor
Everything you think you know about success is wrong. Set Goals. Work Hard. Be Persistent. It's the typical success advice you can probably repeat in your sleep. The type of advice that doesn't seem to work for you - or anyone you know, for that matter. You work your butt off, but at the end of the day, you're no closer to success than you were yesterday. The ugly truth is that it's not what you're doing that is holding you back. It's who you are. It's the baggage between your ears that keeps you from achieving your dreams and goals. That's why we have to change the dialogue about success. It's why we need to have an EDGY conversation.
An EDGY conversation is a gut-wrenchingly honest, no-holds-barred discussion about confronting and fixing the beliefs and behaviors that limit your ability to be amazing. It tackles head-on the uncomfortable yet powerful truth that pain, fear and love - yes, love - have a huge impact on success. EDGY is how ordinary people become extraordinary. EDGY is how a master chef, a World War II veteran, a 15-year-old girl, a homeless retired paramedic, an Australian potato farmer and a shoe executive became amazing, did the unthinkable and forever changed their corner of the world. And EDGY is how you can achieve outrageous success, regardless of who or where you are in life right now. You don't need another book on success. You just need to be more EDGY. Let's talk about it.

Anyone discouraged or contemplating suicide should read how close this man came to shooting himself and how he somehow, unexpectedly, talked himself out of it:
-- If I pull the trigger, there’s no going back. It’s over...for real. There would be no romantic ending to this decision. No Hollywood plotline. This was real life. And it was gritty and nasty.
How do we find the amazon page where readers Kindle-share quotable quotes and good ideas? If you can find mine, you'll see I excerpted a lot of lines we may all know by heart, but we need *reminders.* E.g., ' no one really knows for sure what works when it comes to achieving greatness. Even the “experts” can’t agree.' Old news. But there's "new" news, too. I'm off to google this one in a bit: "Quite literally, scientists have observed love bring dead brain matter back to life. The neurochemicals that are released in response to empathy and kindness, when sprinkled on dead brain cells, bring those cells back to life." Love inspires us, changes, makes all things possible, and Paul of the gospels isn't the first or last person to say this. You don't have to believe Jesus is God to believe that love is one of the powerful forces on earth.
No, that's not new. So what is? With this book the presentation is all. The story of the builders of the Brooklyn Bridge? A gold nugget of fascinating and inspiring historical trivia served with all the good advice.
Examples of good advice, insights, or familiar advice that bears repeating:
-- I wasn’t the only person in pain. In fact, the more I looked, the more I began to see the fear and pain and loss all around me. Broken people. Hurting people. Successful people. All looking for how to solve the problems of life and love and greatness. People you would meet at a dinner party and admire. People you would think had it all together.
-- You don’t wait for someone to trip and fall and then run to lift them up. You look around and actively encourage those who might be suffering silently.
-- A negative person is a mentally weak person. It takes no mental courage to have negative thoughts. What does take mental effort (sometimes lots of it) is to find the best in every situation.
-- There is power in being wrong. A big part of success is humility – the belief that you always have more to learn. But if you’re always right, there is never a need to learn more. Perhaps the biggest wrong is in thinking that you are always right.
-- You are today who you thought you would be. You will be in the future who you think you want to be today.
-- Stop worrying about what other people think of you. Someone else’s opinion is the number one reason you’re going to fail. Are you willing to trade your future for some idiot with a loud mouth? It’s silly how obsessed we are with what others think about us.
-- Avoid the need to blame others for anything. Mean, small-minded people know that they suck. That’s why they are so cranky and eager to point out others’ mistakes. They hope that by causing others to feel inadequate, everyone will forget about how woefully off the mark their own performance is. Don’t blame anyone, for any reason, ever. It’s a bad habit.
All these quotes are only a small percentage of what's in the book. There may be a gazillion books out there preaching the same message, but this one is a quick, easy read, packed full of good reminders to keep us from giving up.
3 stars because a of the stories were interesting an new to me.
