Edgy Conversations: How Ordinary People Achieve Outrageous Success, is Dan Waldschmidt’s answer to the numerous ineffective self-help books on the market. It’s a no-holds-barred discussion about success, unlike other books that often tell you what the road to success should look like, give you the same advice (set goals, be persistent, etc.), but at the end of the day they really don’t help a person achieve success. With Edgy Conversations, which is currently available for pre-order, Dan Waldschmidt is out to help people get to that success they crave.
Edgy Conversations will not only give readers the tools for actually attaining greater success, it will also inspire them with stories of others. Dan Waldschmidt has spent thousands of hours researching the stories of people ranging from an Australian potato farmer to a homeless, retired paramedic—people who did something amazing and changed their part of the world for the better. All of these ordinary people achieved outrageous success, and led Waldschmidt on a journey to uncover what they had in common that led them to do extraordinary things and become remarkable.
Some of these common markers of successful people may come as a surprise for readers. “In the book, I tackle head-on the uncomfortable yet powerful truth that pain, fear, and even love have a huge impact on success,” says Waldschmidt.
Waldschmidt also stresses that simply following the rules of other self-help books won’t get a person to where they want to be: “It’s about confronting and fixing the beliefs and behaviors that limit your ability to be amazing.” Once those beliefs and behaviors are modified, it would seem nothing stands in the way of a person’s success.
