You're Stronger Than You Think Book Review

You’re Stronger Than You Think

Author Dr. Les Parrott takes the reader through strategies in using your inner strength to face some of life most challenging seasons we encounter.  While reading this book I realized that most of humanity would prefer comfort and convenience to struggle, work and having to utilize strength.  The author suggests that if we utilize the power of our mind, heart, and soul we can accomplish things that we never imagined.

I personally love the way Dr. Parrott combine psychology and biblical principles to encourage the readers.  Traditionally, when we think of strength we think of muscles, weights, and body builders.  However, the strength that we need is an internal strength that gives way to powerlessness.  Many people feel powerless to addictions, circumstances, struggles that they are facing in their life.  Dr. Parrott suggests that when we combine the power of our mind, heart, and soul we can see things come to pass in our life.

I especially love the quotes that the author uses throughout the book.  These nuggets of truth emphasize principles that are presented in the book. I recommend this book to anyone facing challenges or feel that they don’t have what it takes to accomplish the goals that have been set.

Note: I received this book free from the publisher through the Tyndale Blog Network. Other than that, neither the publisher, author nor anyone connected to them offered any influence on the content of my review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own.

When Wisdom Meet Passion

When Wisdom Meet Passion is a power packed book filled with truth and insight into everyday living.  To classify this book as a leadership book would not do it justice.  Its much more than a book on leadership.  Its more like a book on life and how to navigate life successfully.  The word "Passion" is a very popular word in our society.  Many people believe that all it takes is passion to succeed in life but following that line of thinking leave many people disappointed and unfufilled in life.  This book brings Wisdom and Passion at a crossroad that produces nuggets of truth and great insight.

The subtitle entitled "When Generations Collide and Collaborate" speaks to the two generations of the author and co-author.  Dan Miller a leadership guru who has written several leadership books and Jared Angaza a young passionate generation X'er combine to produce a really well written book.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for nuggets of truth.  This is a really good book on life lessons.
