This brisk, concise motivational guide showcases the power of goal setting, manifesting, consistency and hard work, with Painter offering anecdotes of his business endeavors in real estate and instances where he implemented the M.A.G.I.C. formula in his own life. The emphasis is on the practical, as Painter provides worksheets and trackers to help readers stay on task; each chapter’s "TAKE ACTION" questions and prompts encourage action steps toward achieving change. Painter breaks down each step in his formula chapter by chapter in clear and concise detail. Readers will take away from this book a plan of action to start accomplishing their goals in an effective, organized manner.
The spirit throughout is positive, focused on mindfulness, gratitude, structured planning, and creating healthy habits that make an easier road to success. Painter avoids making grand promises, instead demonstrating how his audience—business owners, college students, or anyone on a self-development journey—can make themselves into their "Best Version Ever"s, one habit-forming step at a time. He reminds readers that this takes work, commitment, a plan, and positivity.
Takeaway: This motivational guide offers a realistic "magic" formula to success and happiness.
