How the Tortoise Became Fast: A Fable to Follow to Achieve Your Goals

A Fable to Follow to Achieve Your Goals

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


How did the tortoise know he was going to win the race?

Discover the path the tortoise took to reach your goals too!

Everyone knows that tortoise beat the hare in the race.

Very few people know how the tortoise prepared for that moment.

Join Tommy the Tortoise on his journey through the six goal setting steps that transformed him into the "fastest" creature in the forest.

The same six step process that works for tortoises has been proven effective for humans as well.

Like any journey, however, you cannot get to where you want to go until you are willing to start.

All of the tools you to reach your goals are in this one book.

The story of the tortoise and the hare is used to guide the reader through the steps with sections afterwards that include insights, activities, and goal setting worksheets.

Whether it's for business or self-help, everyone can follow these steps to lead to success.

Look at what one website who reviewed the book said!

"(This book) reminded me of those by Patrick Lencioni, another author who understands the value of the story. Here, Mercer uses the fable of the tortoise and the hare as a backdrop for down-to-earth advice on how to set and achieve goals.

Mercer alternates an imaginative lead up to the classic race told from the tortoise's point of view with chapters summarizing the steps to take to first decide what to do and then achieve the desired results. He even includes worksheets" Frances Thomas,

And a "Top 500" Amazon reviewer said....

"This is a short, informative, positive-reinforcing book with a set of great instructions on how to recognize what your goals really are and how to go about achieving them. Mercer is a former Marine and I'd swear that I could almost hear him coming across the pages with his no-nonsense approach at winning at life. I hope he takes his wisdom on the road because the world can certainly use it." Robin Landry.
