Review: How can you find the hidden secrets to success – in sports, business, music and just about anything you want to turn your hand to? Search no more as this book will show you some interesting and helpful insights.
The book has three main sections – The Talent Myth, Paradoxes of the Mind and Deep Reflections but has an overall theme about being the very best we, as humans, can be and how we can bring this about. It will be no surprise to anyone to read that it takes dedication, time, effort, money and commitment to achieve excellence. What is a surprise is the debunking of the ‘talent myth’ and his discussion of the 10,000 hours principle which states that whatever you practice with total dedication for that amount of time you will achieve excellence in.
Matthew combines his own experience as a Champion table tennis player with other sports people and celebrities and shares his ideas about what it takes to become a world-class achiever in any field. A must read if you want to be a Superstar……….
