Welcome to Excitation, Belief, and Control, a new book by Don Hodor, has been published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
What makes some people more successful? Is it their personality? Do they have a high IQ? Maybe it’s their strong work ethic? Long working hours? Are its physical characteristics above average? What really sets these successful people apart as leaders rather than followers? With my engineering background as a resource and the number of successful people I have met over the past 20 years, I set out to document all aspects of their lives and actions. You ask, “Is this another self-help book?” I, too, have read dozens of self-help books. These books tell stories and offer step-by-step procedures for success, but none have really hit the mark on the simple, concrete essence of their success. With an engineering training as a tool and a logical approach, I got started.
I like to find the “common denominator” when solving a problem. I don’t have time to learn the complicated steps or detailed formulas to be successful. Let’s get to the point quickly and precisely. Like I said earlier just give me the time, not how to build a watch! The secret is in three words: Excitement, Belief and Control. Read on to find out how and why this simple formula works.
