In other words -- Larry Winget's words -- "grow a pair"

PHOENIX-- We've all heard the phrase "grow a pair," but the way that Larry Winget is using it has nothing to do with anatomy.

This time "growing a pair" is a state of mind, an attitude, and a way of thinking. It's about giving up being a victim and taking control of your life at every level.

That's according to the Valley-based author who calls his new book, "Grow  a Pair," a simple guide to success. 
To be successful, Winget, who is known as "the pitbull of personal development®," says you must be willing to do the right thing -- even when everyone else is doing the wrong thing.

"It's about knowing yourself, knowing your values, and being uncompromising in your willingness to do whatever it takes to stand up for them," he explained.

In his new book, Winget applies these principals as philosophy to our personal lives, to the way we parent and interact with our families, to the way we approach our careers and our businesses, and to the way we manage our personal finances.

He calls "Grow a Pair," a practical, prescriptive tough-love guidebook, packed with plenty of hard-hitting motivation, and  advice for putting Winget's hard-nosed principles into practice in our daily lives.

"Grow a Pair: How to Stop Being a Victim and Take Back Your Life, Your Business, and Your Sanity" is available everywhere.
