Publisher's Summary

Art Mortell, as a motivatonal speaker, explains why, when successful people reach a crossroads, rather than take the safe path, they become more courageous. They make adjustments that accelerate their recovery. Rather than depend on the 10 negative addictions to cope with anxiety and stress, they thrive on stress by using the four positive addictions.

Successful people’s self-esteem is not based on whether they win or lose, fail or succeed or are loved or rejected, but is based on their own sense of value. Failure is a maturing process that makes them more resilient. They take the challenge seriously, of developing their talents, while being amused by their own frailties and frustrations. Art Mortell explores examples of overcoming obstacles from the lives of Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, and Michael Jackson in this engaging audio.

Adversity renews your humility, sharpens your objectivity, and gives you insight into where change might occur. Stressful situations like management of anger, rather than causing depression, will stimulate your creativity. Negative feedback becomes the information you need to make changes in your course of direction.

Instead of taking rejection personally, you can convert your vulnerabilities into new resiliencies. Imagine all the opportunities you can explore by replacing negative addictions with positive ones! You will discover how to gain trust and credibility, manage anger, and build relationships that assure results.

Through these powerful self-coaching techniques, you will discover when to break-down your objectives into stepping-stones, stretch yourself without feeling overwhelmed, develop ideal role models, and make commitments to people important to you.

Perfect when you need a boost!

I wanted the book to last longer and will be listening to it over and over. I'm not easily impressed. Where would I be if I'd learned this years ago.

Basics repeated!

At the end, I was still expecting to hear something more than those repeted basics.
