BOOK REVIEW: Attitude is Everything

During my Industrial Training at NAFDAC, Kaduna Area Laboratory, in 2014, I ran into one of my co-IT students, Olayinka Obadele, reading a book with the title Attitude Is Everything by Jeff Keller. I was attracted by the title, so I borrowed it. Reading the book caused a major paradigm shift in my life to the extent that I had to get a copy, not only for myself but for my two very good friends as well.

Jeff Keller, through his personal experiences and research, came to a fundamental conclusion that the best way to change your life and be successful is to change your attitude.

It is not ‘hyperbolical’ to say that the book is nothing short of “success manual” to me. It gives me a step-by-step plan for taking control of my life and unleashing my incredible potentials.

The book is divided into three parts, with each part teaching me on how thinking, speaking, and taking action can set me apart in my life endeavour. The three parts are further divided into 12 powerful lessons: Your Attitude is Your Window to the World; You’re A Human Magnet; Picture Your Way to Success; Make a Commitment and You’ll Move Mountains; Turn Your Problems into Opportunities; Your Words Blaze A Trail; How Are You?; Stop Complaining; Associate with Positive People; Confront Your Fears and Grow; Get Out There and Fail; Networking That Gets Results.

Over the past five years, I have read the book several times and have taken personal efforts to put these twelve foundational lessons into practice, and the result has been overwhelming. I am yet to recover from the impact this book has made and is still making in my life. It is literally shaping my leadership skills, career, and professional life, as well as my relationship with people and my environment.

You may want to get a copy for yourself. It’s #superfantastic
