I’ve recently been reading a very practical book entitled The Psychology of Success , by Judith Leary-Joyce.
I got quite enthusiastic about the book when I read the subtitle: Secrets of Serial Achievers, and what Judith has written is at the same time inspirational, and very practical -especially in the practical exercises liberally scattered throughout the book.
My only criticism (and perhaps that’s a back-handed compliment to her thoroughness) is that it’s sometimes a bit too systematic, with checklists and score-cards appearing in several places.
But the book is unequivocally endorsed by the head of HR of two large corporations (one of which is T-Mobile) and a psychiatrist, and it does contain some very unique angles. Such as:
- Understanding your personal gravity
- Discovering your life alignment curve
Whilst some skeptics might dismiss this as dressing up simple ideas into something bigger, just to sell a book, I’ve found lots of nuggets in the book so far, and I’ve been doing series of videos on YouTube which you can watch over on my YouTube channel, or just click on the videos below (if the videos aren’t there when you read this post, it’s because I’ve not yet dug for the specific urls as I’m writing this blog entry on my phone).
With the above caveats in mind (and who knows, Judith might not be analytical enough for you, if you’ve ever done full-blown Myers-Briggs tests or similar), I do endorse the book as one to add to your library.

Oh, by the way, you can see some mindmaps & also get access to a 7 page report about one of the chapters by clicking here:
At the time of writing, it’s very much a work in progress -but let me know if you find it useful.
Lastly, in case you haven’t yet realised, I joined a new business venture back in August of this year, which I see very much a culmination of the internet marketing I’ve been involved in since starting up online in April 2008.
If you’re wanting to gain real success in your business venture online, or you’re looking to join a top online community of entrepreneurs, I unreservedly endorse the company I’m partnered with.
