This is one of the most important books I’ve read in a long time. Andy Andrews lived a relatively normal life until the age of nineteen, when both his parents died – his mother from cancer, his father in an automobile accident. He left college and was homeless. Penniless, he lived under the boardwalk or slept in people’s garages in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The something amazing happened. He befriended another grizzled old homeless person, who gave him a remarkable gift- a library card. Over time, he read more than two hundred biographies of great men and women searching for the answer to how they achieved success. Andy sent people letters asking for advice. “How did you overcome your worst challenge?” he’d ask. To his utter surprise, many of them they wrote back. And he saved those letters and pondered and savored the incredible life saving advice that they contained.

Guess what! There is no secret! It took several years, but Andrews finally determined that there were seven characteristics that each successful person had in common. He also found out he could teach people these remarkably powerful principles by telling witty and funny stories that deliver profound meaning. He became a stand up comedian in Las Vegas and started writing. He eventually wrote over 20 books including The Traveler’s Gift, which has now sold over a million copies and spent seventeen weeks on the New York Times best sellers list.

His new book is Mastering the Seven Decisions That Determine Personal Success , a companion book The The Traveler’s Gift. Andrews shares the very best of what he’s learned about how each one of us can achieve success and what it takes to make the crucial basics stick. It’s a roadmap to correct personal behavior that contains lots of helpful guidance for people at with problems at home, at work, and at play.

Andy Andrews believes that each one of us has the ability to change the world. He’s learned that even when you have nothing, every choice you make matters. Even more important, every choice you do not make matters just as much.

Andy is a believer in what is known as The Butterfly Effect. Even the smallest tiny action can have dramatic consequences. The flap of a butterfly’s wings, is inexplicably intertwined with the birth of a hurricane around the world.

Even the smallest things we do can have a tremendous impact on the world.

Andy is the first to point out that the seven principles, at first blush, don’t seem very profound. “They can have impact once you really grasp how they’ve been used by other people. Then they become an amazing key to releasing incredible personal power that allows you to explore the world of opportunity that surrounds all of us.”

The point of this is simple: Learn the Seven Decisions. They work every time.
