Book review: Kiss That Frog by Brian Tracy

One of the marks of maturity is to accept that you are not perfect, that you make mistakes.

Brian Tracy

Kiss That Frog is an uplifting, motivational read with inspiring words to help you get back to a natural happy state by removing the focus on past negative experiences.

Having felt the negative impact of a situation beyond my control, I knew I had to reclaim the positivity I knew existed to regain my focus and get back to the person I was before.

I knew I had to remove the negative emotions associated with the unexpected situation I found myself in where I couldn’t meet my own high expectations and those of others.

Tracy notes that what often creates a major block that holds people back is the inability to get over a bad situation, often for many years. So, using his knowledge, I had to find a way to reinterpret the negative experience in a positive way to learn from it and let it go.

This book assists in letting go of negative thoughts that take control of your day-to-day life, provides background on how and why emotions happen, then encourages you to reflect and regain focus through sections that state, ‘now do this’.

Not only does this book let you know that you’re in control and can change your mindset, but it also provides a mantra for positive thought moving forward. Tracy gives effective quotes that stay with you which are written in a format that makes it easy to refer to when needed.

The focus on shifting negatives into positives makes this book a must-read for anyone seeking optimism and inspirations to succeed and be happy. Tracy’s ‘action is everything’ conclusion is a useful collection of usable phrases that enable you to take control of your perceptions and emotional responses to situations.

A key takeaway for me was the notion to look for something good in every problem, difficulty, or ‘frog’ you face – you’ll always find some way to benefit.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone whose experiences have created negative thoughts and those needing to regain the positivity that all of us need to be happy and successful.

Alternatively, it’s also useful for those looking to ensure they’re resilient and have the tools to successfully navigate issues when they occur.
