99 Habit Success Stories - Michal Stawicki and Jeannie Ingraham

99 Habit Success Stories

I have greatly appreciated the books by Michal Stawicki since I discovered them back in 2015. I just check and with reading this title I have read most of his books for a total of 18 times, and have gone back and read a second and even third time. I also really enjoyed the first collaboration by Stawicki and Ingraham 99 Perseverance Success Stories: Encouragement for Success in Every Walk of Life and really looked forward to this volume once I hear that it was being released. 

What I love most about this volume is that the examples are real. Starting with Michal’s own transformation of his life. Some of the stories are of famous people and some will be people you would never have heard of. The great thing about this book is you can pick any of the stories and find motivation and encouragement. I had an art teacher in high school that told us a story about Picasso, he was asked in an interview once ‘how his painting were so good?’ and his reply was that for every one he put on canvas he did 1000 in his head. You will capture some of that essence in this volume, not all the stories will speak to you, and when you include Michal’s story you have a hundred different examples of success born out of habit. 

Some of these stories are modern, Mark Zuckerberg, Frank McKinley, and Serena Williams. Other are standards you would expect in such a book Zig Ziglar, Stephen Covey, Bill Gates. Some are ancient and some are just emerging now. And I would include Tim Ferriss, Dave Asprey, and Stawicki himself in that contemporary category. 

You can read this book from cover to cover, or randomly go through reading stories here and there. But you must read the first section about Michal’s journey, and the final chapter on ‘Connecting the Dots’. And the book serves as a great introduction to his though and jumping off point for many of his other books.

This book is an excellent volume and I am recommending it to friends and family. And I know you would benefit from reading it. So pick it up and see some of these examples of habit leading to success and start on your own journey.
