Overcoming the 4 Failures

While walking through a large discount store I wondered why many of the shoppers had not been more successful in their careers and perhaps in their lives. As I watched and thought about their situation, as well as my own successes and failures, I arrived at four failures that severely limit people's lives.

  • Stupid - uneducated and unprepared to learn and grow.
  • Lazy - unwilling to work hard and put out the effort to overcome obstacles.
  • Ugly - rude, inconsiderate, and even violent to other people.
  • Afraid - terrified to try something new or to brave the unknown.

I researched each of these areas in the psychology, leadership, and self-help literature. This book speaks very frankly to the damage that these four behaviors can do to your life. It offers alternatives and a means to change these weaknesses into strengths, specifically into:

  • Smart
  • Active
  • Attractive
  • Bold
