by Doug Lennick and Roy Geer
As Christopher Morely pointed out...
“The real purpose of books is to trap the mind into doing its own thinking.”
This book will examine two issues:
- How do I get what I want for myself?
- How do I get to be Number One?
Further, the purpose of “How to Get What You Want & Remain True to Yourself” is:
1. To show you what being Number One required of one man.
2. To show how that man is getting what he wants for himself by combining his beliefs with the concepts and tools taught him by another man.
3. To show how that man used his beliefs and the concepts and tools he learned to help other people get what they want for themselves.
4. To give you an opportunity to identify your beliefs and to teach you how to use these concepts and tools.
This is a “DO IT” book. Throughout the book we will invite you to use the concepts and tools described, and will do that by "cuing you" like this: Do it.
