7 Powerful Lessons from It Takes What It Takes: How to Think Neutrally and Gain Control of Your Life by Trevor Moawad

1. Embrace Neutral Thinking: The book challenges the idea that our emotions dictate our reality and proposes "neutral thinking" as a powerful tool for navigating life's challenges. This involves observing your emotions without judgment and making decisions based on logic and reason, not impulse or fear.

2. Develop a Winning Plan: Success requires a clear and actionable plan. Moawad outlines a practical framework for setting goals, identifying obstacles, and creating strategies to overcome them. He emphasizes the importance of flexibility and adapting your plan as needed.

3. Make Hard Choices: True growth often involves making tough decisions that challenge your comfort zone. Learn to identify the choices that align with your goals, even if they seem difficult in the moment.

4. Control Your Inner Voice: Our internal dialogue can be a powerful force for either good or bad. Learn to manage your self-talk, challenging negative thoughts and replacing them with positive affirmations and self-belief.

5. Cultivate a Negativity Diet: Just like we monitor what we eat, we should also be mindful of what we consume mentally. Limit exposure to negativity, including toxic relationships, news, and social media, and focus on positive and inspiring content.

6. Craft Your Own Internal Campaign: Moawad encourages creating a personal "ad campaign" that reinforces your desired mindset and behaviors. Use positive affirmations, visualization, and self-motivation techniques to stay focused on your goals.

7. Embrace Pressure: Don't shy away from challenges or pressure situations. Learn to view them as opportunities for growth and development. By embracing pressure and performing under fire, you build resilience and confidence.
