FIRSTI can t wait to find out why he jumped out of a plane I m a huge bobby bones show fan listen to the show pod cast every day Unfortunately I didn t love this book Disclaimer, I listened to it on audible thinking it would be better since I m used to listening to him I DNF 3 4 of the way through It had some good advice but I just found myself bored, and a little annoyed He is simultaneously self deprecating and self promoting patting himself on the back Some of the advice, all based in his life, is not practical or healthy work life balance , which could be a huge reason for his lack of a girlfriend or intimate friendships or a social life Like saying he doesn t miss work unless he is literally dead going to work or doing a show when he was literally vomiting and sick with a fever I guess meaning if you don t do this, you are considered weak But on the show he gets mad at anyone who shows up with even a sniffle because he doesn t want to get sick It s not really polite to go to work vomiting and sick with a fever to get everyone around you sick So, I get the message, I just thought it was a little overboard and his lifestyle reflects that in his personal relationships he self admittedly has a lot of emotional issues that lead him to be a workaholic which of course will bring great success but at what cost I didn t read his first book, and I m sure a memoir would have been better suited I was also probably a little annoyed already by all the self promotion on the show about the book. This is nonfiction self help I didn t know who this author was, but I found out a little about him from this book I listened to the audio and this actually grated on me in the beginning It felt a little exhausting because he was ALWAYS in high performance mode Really.it felt exhausting as I listened to the audio But when he opened up a little, it felt a littlereal I enjoyed his message, especially the part when he talked about the daily grind As I listened to this, I thought one of my sons would benefit from this. I had to edit my stars because I was judging unfairly This is a self help book I thought it would have some fun relatable stories but I just felt lectured to And because I went in reading thinking it was going to be fun interesting stories I wanted to give it 3 s but for the topic of self help it was well put together and easy to grasp So that gets 5 sStill very interesting but not entertaining as I was hoping. The book Fail Until You Don t was an interesting read for me Before reading this book I had never read a self help book, but it was recommended to me by a few friends I really enjoyed reading this book It was interesting to hear the mindset of Bobby Bones who came from so little as a child, to have had so much success in so many different aspects of his life I really like his motto Fight Grind Repeat I believe that ifpeople would follow this way of looking at life that many people would be happier with their lives The Fight part of the motto I feel tells you if something is worth doing, whether it s a job or anything in life, you have to be willing to fight to get it done If it s a job you have to fight to get that job, send in a resume , go to an interview or multiple interviews to have a chance to get the job Deciding to Fight for whatever you are interested in is the first step Next comes the Grind step No matter what you do there will be parts of your job that you may not like, but you always have to work to get better at everything, not just what you enjoy If you don t Grind every day you will become complacent and start to decline in your work This complacency will cause you to either lose your job, or if you are in a field where you work off of commission then you will not be able to support yourself The last step Repeat means you have to be willing to do it all over again if things do not work out More often than not you will not succeed or find the perfect job on your very first try So you need to be willing to repeat the process to succeed and be happy in life.
