The Do or Do Not Outlook is an indispensable aid to personal growth. Nick Maley, renowned worldwide as “That Yoda Guy” for his involvement in the Star Wars original trilogy, turns traditional wisdom on its head and examines the fears and obstacles that discourage us from taking the risk of reaching for the stars. His main message? You can’t live an exceptional life by being “normal.”
Nick Maley’s book isn’t a typical book, because Maley isn’t a typical guy. Each page discusses one of 70 pointers that mentor readers, daily, through the journey toward living their dream. The inspirational pages do include some hidden gems about the movies he’s worked on, but his main focus is on achievement and the work it takes to make that happen—whatever someone’s goal may be. It’s the Jedi’s guide to self-empowerment!
In the final third of the book, Maley details how this book's main themes (including determination, persistence, hard work, and celebrating individuality) helped rocket him from the low-income housing of his youth to the sets of some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. If you’re a movie buff, he also includes a compelling filmography giving a behind-the-scenes look into the sets he’s worked on, including The Shining, Superman, Highlander, and more.
With an unconventional take on traditional attitudes, this book is filled with simple truths showing how the author experienced life on his own terms—all because he dared to be that little guy who thought BIG. The Do or Do Not Outlook is your guide to do the same.
