From the Publisher

Just like the lonely princess in the fairy tale who was reluctant to lock lips with a warty frog and transform him into a handsome prince, something stops many of us short of attaining our dreams. Our negative thoughts, emotions, and attitudes can threaten to keep us from achieving all that we’re capable of. Here bestselling author and speaker Brian Tracy and his daughter, therapist Christina Tracy Stein, provide a set of practical, proven strategies anyone can use to turn those negative frogs into positive princes.

Tracy and Stein present a step-by-step plan that addresses the root causes of negativity, helps you uncover blocks that have become mental obstacles, and shows how you can transform them into stepping-stones to achieve your fullest potential. The book distills, in an accessible and immediately useful form, what Tracy has presented in more than 5,000 talks and seminars with more than five million people in fifty-eight countries and what Stein has learned through thousands of hours of counseling people from all walks of life.

“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” the authors quote Shakespeare. The many powerful techniques and exercises in this book will help you change your mindset so that you discover something worthwhile in every person and experience, however difficult and challenging they might seem at first. You’ll learn how to develop unshakable self-confidence, become your best self, and begin living an extraordinary life.

The Upside of Outliers

Greater loyalty “There’s a secret sauce in hiring a person who knows that I believe in him enough to take a chance,” says David Williams, CEO of Fishbowl, an inventory software firm near Salt Lake City. Williams has hired everyone from his electrician to a guy who sold him a snowboard, and he’s more likely to size up someone’s creativity, sharp wit, and patience than what industry he or she hails from. That talent strategy has helped Williams steer Fishbowl to seven consecutive years on the Inc. 5000—and achieve remarkably low turnover. Challenged norms “Long tenure in any industry comes with

How I Hire Employees

AS TOLD TO K.F. FIRST, we determine the DNA of each job, which shows us the personality we need for the right team fit, the individual skill set needed so someone won’t be learning on our dime, and the psychology of the person we need. We describe that in great detail. THEN WE focus on: Can she do the job? Is she the right team fit? Will she do the job long-term well? We ask what her goals are and if she is aligned with the job. WE GIVE our candidates a personality test that, among other things, answers the question: What is the person’s nature? Everyone is a mix of, I’ll use the shorthand,

Noncash-Bonus Time: Three Key Strategies

KNOW YOUR OBJECTIVE. It’s critical to determine how the bonus you’re awarding supports what you and your company want to achieve, says Susan David, a psychologist at Harvard Medical School and the author of Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life. “If your goal is to motivate, you need to assess what the risks are to your game plan if you give a bonus to recognize outstanding work performance to only one person on the team versus everyone who participated,” she says. “Those who do not receive a bonus may feel demoralized, less motivated, and unfairly treated
