Book Reviews

“With some books you read and then you contemplate what you have read. This one is different. You need to read it and then take action. As always, with self-help tomes there are no short cuts. Still, the way it is laid out does make that process a little more doable.” — Forbes

The first and most important challenge of your pivot is to clear your vision and rediscover clarity.

Those who pivot aren’t extraordinary. They become extraordinary when they decide they will not tolerate the circumstances of their lives for one moment longer.

You don’t have to be special to pivot. You become special when you decide to.

The real risk of change isn’t that you might try and fail. It’s that you might not try and you’ll regret it.

Pivoting is not an extreme sport. It’s a step-by-step, realistic way to change your life.

It’s not wanting change that is unreasonable. It’s tolerating unnecessary misery.

The past is never wasted. Pivoting is about making sure you don’t waste your future.

Waiting to change is the same as not changing at all.

That is the pivot way: To let go of the past, detach from the plan, and simply allow ourselves to move into the current of change and possibility.

When you identify and address your fear, you will find clarity. With clarity, you can pivot.
