For many the concept – let alone the implementation – of servant leadership as a key component of sustainable success is decidedly foreign. Not so for Jacob Barrocas who offers practical, effective strategies on how to serve – and succeed.

What I like most about this book is the feeling of having space to think. It is arranged in a way that just seems to allow the words on the page to breathe, allowing you to have a dialogue with the author.
This book is concise – it’s 100 pages are full of inspiring stories, beautiful quotes, and life lessons of the author. He includes helpful exercises (that he calls play time) at the end of each chapter that prompt the reader to explore how the principles can be applied to your own life. What good is it to read Another business book if you don’t apply it to your own situation?
The biggest impact for me was exploring and defining my own Values and Principles. We all have some sort of code that we live by, but are generally unaware of how these bedrocks affect everything we do. By taking them out and examining them you learn more about yourself, how you define success personally, and how simplifying can lead to greater clarity and better decisions in daily life.

Finally if you are in a position to do so, I would really recommend contacting the author for consulting in your business. I have done so personally – and my life has been changed and enriched with each encounter. I am grateful to have met Jacob and I am pleased to call him friend.
I was amazed at the author’s insight into what really matters in life. I read this book quickly through and now I am going back and doing the exercises. The author helps you figure out what is really important in life and then presents a plan for incorporating it into your personal and business world. It is simple, but like all things that are worthwhile, not easy. His plan helps you develop purpose, balance and a way to achieve a lasting and principle driven success.
Jacob Barrocas shares his wisdom, gathered from a lifetime of success in both his business and personal life, on how to be successful. The message is clear, easy to understand, and fun to read. Rather than a typical business book which asserts that money will make you happy, Sustainable Success teaches that it is only through adhering to your values and principles that you will be a true success. This book is for anyone who wants to learn how to balance their personal and work life and for those who want to learn how to be a true success in life.
Jacob Barrocas has written this book from his heart, his soul, and from the wisdom in his lifes’ experience and this comes as a gift to us, the readers. It is easy to read and will definitely make a difference in your life for the better! It is one of those books that you can “gift” to others in YOUR life, and be certain that you are gifting GOLD for the SPIRIT. It is a book for all “Ages”.
Sustainable Success is an excellent book that I could not put down once I started. Jacob has so eloquently put the insights and inspirations he has experienced over a lifetime into a very organized and flowing read. He gives you the no nonsense tools and tips you need to truly receive love and happiness in your life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their life or who needs a gentle push in the right direction.
This book written in a most practical easy way is an amazing guide to living in the present moment and allowing the abundance of life to organically unfold. I think it could be a valuable resource for business students and young people wanting to understand the mechanics of creating sustainable success in their lives
