“Go Getter” by Peter B. Kyne is by far the shortest personal development book that I have ever read. You can still get some great gold nuggets from this book. The main points of this book is narrated throughout the entire forty five pages of the book. The point is simply that you should never, never give up on your goals and dreams. The “blue vase” that the Bill Peck searched for is the equivalent to the hopes and dreams that we want to achieve and realize in our lives.
Bill Peck was determined to find that “blue vase” no matter what obstacles came his way. You must be determine to achieve your goals no matter what kind of torpedoes oppose you on the way. If you stop following your dreams, then you will become just like the 95% of the people who fail. The people who fail are the ones that let life go by without attempting anything. The “Bill Peck” of the world keep going and going and moving towards his goals and dreams.
Bill Peck kept relying on his principles and will to keep on going and never giving up. He does not know what the “gold” he will get at the end of the rainbow. He only focused achieving it. Bill Peck with his “disabilities” represent the small percentage of people who become successful. It is amazing that what we may consider his short comings is actual his strength. He had the “disability” to never quit while the “normal” people quit and move on to the next shiny object. The normal people with their “ability” are the ones who are lacking in every aspect of their lives and are doomed to fail. Bill PecK did not let any thing deter him from achieving his objective. The name change of the store from Cohen to Cohn would have stop a many people in their tracks. He acknowledged that the name was different he just made more phone calls. Bill Peck kept going even though he faced obstacles after obstacles. At what point would you have quit or are you a “go-getter”?
The decision is in you hands the question is Which wolf do you feed?
