Have you ever started something just to become discouraged and quit at the earliest setback? Do you find yourself attending seminars, listening to lectures, or reading development books but never putting theory into practice? Then you need to read Believers & Doubters. As the saying goes, If you think you can, you are right. If you think you can't, then you are also right. Believers & Doubters goes beyond the simple phrase and examines the factors that subconsciously influence whether you are a Believer (Inner-directed) or a Doubter (Other-directed). These factors include cultural attitudes, religious beliefs, family values and educational perspective. From reading this book you will learn how these factors determine why some people are self-reliant, purposeful, individuals who have discovered the potential within themselves while others are people whose fear of failure and rejection makes them compromise their quality of life. Additionally you will learn how these two diverse groups view important aspects of their lives including money, education, marriage, children, and risk-taking. Finally there are useful exercises that will help you to determine the degree that you are a Believer or a Doubter and how to design a plan for your life. As the books brilliantly illustrates, Even the most gifted surgeon with all the best tools is worthless unless he is mentally ready to make the cut. Are you ready?
