David has done it again! Another book packed full of information and ideas so ordinary people WIN!
Doreene Clement, The 5 Year Journal,

Every person is born with great things to perform. But finding our great things proves to be one of life’s greatest challenges. Many don’t find them because they settle for much less.

You were born with abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Like me, you may be able to read well and write moderately well, but can’t change a spark plug. Or, you may be able to overhaul an engine, but can barely read.

We all have our strengths. We all have some specific great things we have been born to do.

Babe Ruth was born to hit and throw a baseball. He was also born to love and inspire kids. He was not born to write treatises for scholarly journals. It’s wonderful that he found his “great things” and performed them like no other.

Too few people actually perform the “great things” they were to do.

You have created a very motivating book that is very easy to read and understand. I love all the inspirational quotes at the end of each chapter.
People who read your book and apply its principles will develop the focus and motivation they need to succeed.
Harriet Meyerson, The Confidence Center,
