S.U.M.O. stands for Shut Up, Move On. It's a phrase to say to ourselves (and sometimes others) when we are acting or thinking in a way that is hindering our ability to succeed. It doesn't necessarily mean 'get over it' or 'pull yourself together' (although there may be occasions when both responses are necessary). 'Shut Up' means stop what you're doing, take time out to reflect, let go of baggage and beliefs that hinder your potential. 'Move On' means tomorrow can be different from today, look for new possibilities, don't just think about it, take action.
There are six S.U.M.O. principles that are designed to help you create and enjoy a brilliant life. If you are wrestling with life's challenges, these principles will help you do so more successfully.
1. Change Your T-Shirt - take responsibility for your own life and don't be a victim.
2. Develop Fruity Thinking - change your thinking and change your results.
3. Hippo Time is OK - understand how setbacks affect you and how to recover from them.
4. Remember the Beachball - increase your understanding and awareness of other people's world.
5. Learn Latin - change comes through action not intention. Overcome the tendency to put things off.
6. Ditch Doris Day - create your own future rather than leave it to chance. Forget the attitude 'que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be.'
"A superb book. It combines honesty, humour and inspiration to help people move ahead in life."
—Allan and Barbara Pease, authors of Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps
"Powerful, simple and effective. A highly engaging and thought provoking book. Anyone who reads it is sure to look at themselves and the world differently as a result."
—Octavius Black and Sebastian Bailey, The Mind Gym
The S.U.M.O. guy is Paul McGee, an international speaker and author. He has been developing the S.U.M.O. principles over the last five years.
"...still smarting because you were passed over for promotion? Not yet come to terms with the Head of Sales having the last word - again - in your latest tete-a-tete? Well, once where you might have been urged to get over it, now there's only one way of describing the emotional u-turn that's needed: shut up, move on. More neatly known as SUMO..." (Accountancy Age, 21 July 2005)
"...a snappy, easily digestible book that is full of insight and honesty." (Accounting Technician, September 05)

So many other self-improvement books are far too long - and spend many pages trying to get a single point across.
This is a bargain at any price.
Most self-help books primarily focus upon one area of concern. Paul helps inspire you to rise to whatever challenge life hands you. He does this by giving you insight into understanding yourself and others. When it comes to planning and having action in your life, Paul will help challenge your thought process. The Ditch Doris Day section was clever in discussing how you can take ownership of your future.
To make the most of your life, learn the SUMO method. It is simple, straightforward and compelling. I found this book to be very valuable.
