With The Top 2%, our intention is to provide the latest research on what it takes to reach the top in the 21st Century—the road map for the next generation of achievers – starting with you. The fact is, the top 2 percent set the trends in every industry. They set the trends by imagining and dreaming things that didn't exist and then doing what it took to make it happen. Whether you're in business, entertainment, sports, politics or some other industry, if you're in the top 2 percent, you have the power and influence to make things happen. Find your overarching sense of purpose and focus on it, you'll find yourself with a drive and a passion you never felt before! As Dostoyevsky put it, "The secret of a man's being is not only to live, but to have something to live for." Find out what you're living for, and you'll be on your way to the stars.

By John J. Murphy Format: Hardcover Pages: 112 Dimensions: 170 mm x 170 mm Fastest delivery time: 1 to 2 days Stepping Up will teach you the 10 steps for advancing your career now. It's the only book of its kind in the Simple Truths library and you will come away with solid steps on how to move ahead in your career goals after reading John's book. What Are You Doing with Your 24 Hours Today? How often do you hear people use time as an excuse to not get something done? We hear it quite frequently. In fact, it is one of the most common excuses (inputs) that limit successful outputs. If we don't take time for what really matters, we cannot possibly expect an improvement in results. As Albert Einstein once noted, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The real key then is not the amount of time we have. We all have 24 hours in a day. It is how we prioritize our activities and use the time we have. The reality is it's time to Step Up or step aside. So many times I’ve said, “It’s not what you say, but how you say it that turns the switch from off to on." John’s writing style is clear, concise and engaging. He asks questions to make you think and makes his point in a way that makes the reader say, “Wow. I never thought of it quite that way!” If you’re totally pleased with the success you’ve had in your career and in life, you can stop reading now. If, however, you’d like to step up and tap into your true potential, John's latest book, Stepping Up…10 Takeaways for Advancing Your Career, is for you.
