Most people go to great lengths to avoid pressures in life because they view pressure as a bad thing with negative consequences. Martin Grunburg does an excellent job of showing you why pressure is a good thing that is actually required when it comes to achieving your goals through your individual performance. If you want to consistently produce results that are significantly better than average, without excessive stress, you need to understand how to use pressure to your advantage and this book will show you how. – Amazon Review
In a spectacular follow-up to The Habit Factor®, Grunburg illustrates exactly how our environment (and in particular Pressure) is an essential ingredient to help us achieve our goals and the success we desire. Many people, including some of today’s leading experts in psychology and performance, contend that pressure “is the enemy of success.”
In The Pressure Paradox, Grunburg elucidates precisely the opposite: When properly harnessed, channeled and “refracted” positively, pressure proves to be one of your greatest allies on your journey to becoming successful. Many who struggle in life misunderstand pressure; they intentionally avoid it or try to live a life devoid of pressure because they believe it is harmful.
However it turns out that one’s personal growth, virtue and success all come as a result of pressure, not in spite of it. Therefore, knowing how to use pressure (which is technically a neutral force) positively is arguably one of life’s greatest secrets for goal achievement, peak performance and, of all things, happiness and even peace of mind.
