Josh Bryant is a keen motivator who gets results.
While laid up following tonsil surgery, I downloaded Josh's "Jailhouse Strong: The Successful Mindset Manual". In three days I've read it twice. It's right up there with any of the best selling business or self-improvement books that I've read. More than that, this book IS what so many others are not: CONCISE!
It's clear that Josh knows how to communicate his mindset and experience to help others achieve their goals. It's also clear that Josh is well-read in the field of success and brings the best insights from this genre into one easily accessible handbook.
This book is the companion to Jailhouse Strong and is dedicated to developing a successful mindset. Keeping with the jailhouse model, Josh starts with the notion of one breaking free from one's personal imprisonment. He progresses from there to harnessing the power of belief and developing and maintaining a growth mindset. The following three chapters are laid out to help you step-by-step to define your goals, prepare your mind to achieve your goals (while training ) and get the best performance when the moment comes for you to compete (or to achieve your goal).
In reading this manual, I've picked up several gems and I've been introduced to new concepts about strength and visualization. For instance, I've never put the time effort into success visualization before training or before a meet. In this manual, Josh is a compelling proponent of it's use and he gives incredibly clear instructions on how to use it. I'm going to incorporate it into my routine TODAY.
The bottom line: Reading this book was a good use of my time and I learned some things that are going to take my training and day-to-day living to the next level. Thanks to the Kindle format, I'll be able to reference it repeatedly as needed. What more can I ask for?
Strong work, Josh. Thank you.
