Books By Jon Acuff
Over the last 100 years, the road to success for most everyone has been divided into predictable stages. But three things have changed the path to success:
Boomers are realizing that a lot of the things they were promised aren’t going to materialize, and they have started second and third careers.
Technology has given access to an unprecedented number of people who are building online empires and changing their lives in ways that would have been impossible years ago.
The days of “success first, significance later,” have ended.
While none of the stages can be skipped, they can be shortened and accelerated. There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives readers practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.
Your thoughts can work for you or against you, but the good news is you get a choice. The even better news is when you're young, your entire world is made of new. You're a movie that's barely started, a notebook with blank pages to fill, a song that hasn't hit the chorus. You have your whole life ahead of you. When you learn to create new thoughts, those thoughts lead to actions, and those actions lead to new results. Are you ready to tap into the superpower of mindset? Just hit play.
What if you could have a fulfilling career, a thriving marriage, strong friendships, and rewarding hobbies, all while being in the best shape of your life? What if every day you lived was better than the one before? What if tapping into your potential wasn't as hard as you think?
According to New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff, it might not be. In fact, All It Takes Is a Goal. In his ninth book, he shows you how to plan goals that you're guaranteed to reach by focusing on your best moments, navigating the three zones of performance, and finding ways to fuel your passions, all while actually enjoying the ride.
Sound too good to be true? Jon thought so too. Until it happened--again and again--for him and the hundreds of real people in his research project. Whether your goals are personal, relational, or career-driven, the key to a better future is closer than you think.

Boss Up! will help you put your business on the map and the ideas you’ve previously only dreamed about into the marketplace. Learn to overcome your fears and guilt to find a fulfillment that changes you and your family for the better— breaking free of the hard and boring and having fun along the way.
In Boss Up! Lindsay helps you gain confidence to understand that having ambition doesn’t make you a bad wife or mother. That it’s okay to have a desire for something more than endless sippy cups, clean-ups, Band-Aids, and groundings. That no matter your education or experience, you can tap into your passions and create businesses that give you increased flexibility, fulfillment, and financial security.
Lindsay doesn’t just do this through commiserating but by giving you the tools for change. Using the lessons she learned on her own path to success, Lindsay shares real, solid business principles with ten distinct success philosophies that you will encounter on the journey to entrepreneurship, such as:
- Thinking long-term
- Being unapologetically yourself
- Use the “unsales” tactic
- Understand your “why”
Lindsay is a stay-at-home mom turned multimillion-dollar-producing business owner, but she doesn’t just have a passion for entrepreneurship. She has a deep passion for helping women of all walks of life gain the confidence and skills to tap into their ambition and achieve success in their own business endeavors. Are you ready to Boss Up?
At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, “I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.” “I’m a CPA, but I’d love to start my own business.”
“I’m a _____, but I want to be a ______.”
All too often, we hear that dreaming big means you quit your day job, sell everything you own, and move to Guam. But what if there were a different way?
What if you could blow up your dream without blowing up your life?
What if you could go for broke without going broke?
What if you could start today?
What if you already have everything you need to begin?
From figuring out what your dream is to quitting in a way that exponentially increases your chance of success, Quitter is full of inspiring stories and actionable advice. This book is based on 12 years of cubicle living and my true story of cultivating a dream job that changed my life and the world in the process.
It’s time to close the gap between your day job and your dream job.
It’s time to be a Quitter.

Si cada que empiezas algo nuevo, por una u otra razón, siempre lo dejas a la mitad, este libro es para ti.
Durante años, pensé que mi problema era que no me esforzaba lo suficiente. Entonces comencé a levantarme más temprano, tomé las suficientes bebidas energéticas para matar a un caballo, contraté a un life coach y comí más superalimentos. Nada funcionó.
¿Por qué? Porque el obstáculo más furtivo para alcanzar nuestras metas no es la pereza, sino el perfeccionismo. Somos nuestros peores críticos, y si parece que no vamos a hacer algo bien, preferimos no hacerlo. Las estrategias en este libro pueden parecer una trampa, pero se basan en estudios realizados por un investigador universitario con cientos de participantes y casos probados.
Imagina que tu dieta, tocar la guitarra o tu pequeña empresa tuvieran 43% más de posibilidad de éxito sólo por seguir unos simples principios. Si estás cansado de intentar terminar tus proyectos y quieres tener constancia en tu vida, tienes dos opciones: puedes seguir dándote golpes y esforzándote más, "ya que esta vez funcionará", o puedes darte el regalo de terminarlos: con este libro sabrás cómo hacerlo.
Der Autor hat selbst die gängigen Ratschläge dagegen getestet: Früher aufstehen, nur noch Super Food essen und Energydrinks in einer Menge zu sich nehmen, die ein Pferd umgebracht hätte. Das Ergebnis: ein vor lauter Koffein irre zuckendes Augenlid, aber nicht ein erreichtes Ziel. Denn nicht Faulheit ist das Problem, sondern ein übertriebener Perfektionismuswahn und fehlender Spaß. Oder warum haben Sie das Klavierspielen aufgegeben?
Gestützt von Untersuchungen belegt Jon Acuff, wie man mit etwas mehr Freude, dem Ignorieren von Regeln und einfach mal alles anders machen Ziele konstant
