I’m not a regular peruser of self-help books. When the opportunity to review this book presented itself, I admit there was a level of curiosity seeking fulfillment. The subject matter of dreams was the hook convincing me to give this a read.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book for a number of reasons. The author dreamed of writing this book, obviously he was successful in his pursuit. He was also generous enough to share his accomplishment with others along with the ingredients to reach fruition. Every chapter has a theme and the entirety of the book is very flexible unlike rigidity found in many self-help books. The formula allows you to maintain control, for instance you create a timeline of sorts allowing edits, a plus in my eyes. The author encourages you to dream and do what’s best to gratify needs while meeting your dreams. He also promotes a pay it forward system – sharing your experience with others in order to encourage and foster their dreams. Another clever tip – draw your dreams, it sounds insane but the examples and reason why this exercise is helpful causes one to ponder and give it a try.
Well written, I commend the author for not only writing a recipe to reach your dreams but also a method he personally exercised with great success. Show, tell and experience is the best method cultivating others.
A helpful book for those looking to make your dreams a reality, like all books, there is something of importance you will walk away from – helping, educating or enlightening you in some form. Quick read, chock full of ideas pushing you to your ultimate goals providing endless encouragement.
About the Book:
Somewhere along the way, you had a dream that you let go of. But it hasn’t let go of you. You’re the reason this book was written. Because dreams matter. Dreams are powerful. And sometimes dreams just won’t go away – no matter how impractical, ill-timed or financially risky they are.
This is a book about getting unstuck in your life or career. It’s about learning to dream in COLOR and think in BLACK & WHITE. There are three parts to this book: Dreaming in Color, Thinking in Black & White, and Fulfilling Your Dreams. Each part contains practical “how to” steps and examples explaining how to get unstuck and move toward your dream. The rest is up to you.
