Summary

Have you bought into lie about success which constantly requires more, more, and more? To achieve success, you must do more, work more hours, and take on more responsibilities. If so, you're probably experiencing a roller-coaster ride of mixed results: being on top of the world one moment and crashing to earth at lightning speed the next. 

The Success Lie was written for you. You recognize the gap between where you are now and your highest potential but don't want to sacrifice your sanity to get there. Janelle Bruland has built a formidable bridge over that gap, proving that you can be successful in the business world and maintain balance in your personal life without constantly feeling overwhelmed. 

You know that everything in life is a result of the choices you've made. Yet, you're wondering if you're making the right choices. The proven strategies you will learn in this book will show you how to step away from the modern world's path to success and create a life of fulfillment - one where you are aligned in your values, living your purpose, loving your work, and positively impacting your family. 

  • Determine what's truly important to you and then live by those priorities.
  • Recognize what's gotten in the way of your success and take proactive steps to become a better (and happier) version of yourself. 
  • Discover strategies to overcome overwhelm. 

Take back your life! Stop allowing societal pressures to tell you what matters. Get back on the path to fulfillment and do it your way! Live your purpose. Love your work. Positively impact everyone around you. 

Don't buy into the lie anymore. You have the choice. Your choices start today. 

Included in The Success Lie are resources and tools which will help you in designing your own Success Plan. Access a downloadable workbook to apply these ideas to your life. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Concise and practical

I enjoyed this great practical guide on how to set your life up for success. It references a number of other authors in the field e.g. Michael Hyatt, as well as including a number of other methodologies and ideas. It’s helpful that the author explains how she has incorporated all those elements in her own life and the role of each technique in helping overcome specific barriers or obstacles. So, useful as a summary for people new to this or as a refresher.

Very actionable concepts

Janelle gives specific actions to help any entrepreneur avoid the many pitfalls of starting or running a business. There is no substitute for the hard lessons learned in running a business, but the book can give you awareness and tools to help maximize the entrepreneurial journey and really let your business serve You.

There’s a right way and a wrong way

Janelle does it the wrong way. The line between helpful advice and unabashed self-praise may be a relatively thin one, but Janelle does not tow that line, she steps over it completely. The way she speaks about her business, MSNW, will have you asking yourself “why am I listening to this garbage?” Once a scrappy small business owner, Janelle now owns a thriving company (which is great) but she speaks in such a way that is so out of touch. It’s as if she cannot hear herself when she speaks. Stop using terrible cliches like your “employees are family.” I couldn’t stand it.

Just extraordinary!!!

I have read a lot of books regarding success and productivity, however this one is my favorite so far. The author is authentic, direct and provides tools and real life experiences that not only makes the book enjoyable but helpful. The pdf provided is a great extra and pushes you to do the work. If you want real success you should read it or listen to The Success Lie!

Worth the read

Excellent life changing and practical application that every entrepreneur should examine. This book helped me to refocus my goals to what really matter as an entrepreneur.
The author illustrated how every aspect of our lives can be crushed by just focusing on being driven by success alone. Success is far more that achieving great wealth instead it’s a balanced lifestyle that allows you to take good care of yourself and those that matter to you while having a successful business.
