Anything worth doing is going to have some obstacles. Some people look at setbacks as evidence that whatever it is they’ve been striving for just wasn’t meant to be. But according to bestselling author and master motivator John Mason, the moment most people give up is the moment of their greatest opportunity.
In this inspiring book, Mason gives you fifty-two keys to never giving up on your dreams. He shows you how to move forward when you’re on the verge of quitting, how to avoid unneccessary vtrouble, and how to keep your energy level up in the face of setbacks.
Whatever your dream–whether you’re building a portfolio, a family, a business, or relationships–you’ll find the strength and motivation to go on, break through, and claim the prize.
This book is small–166 pages– and each chapter is as small as a devotion sized book. So if you want to read this for your morning devotions, go ahead! (However, I wouldn’t suggest that as devotions are supposed to be more Bible study than a pep talk.)
I think he brought up some really good points that a lot of people should read. (Debating which person to pass this onto next, lol!) He used stories, jokes, and the occasional Bible verse to make his point. A point which I think is important– that you are stronger than you think. If God is for you, who can be against you? I’ve never heard of An Enemy Called Average, but now I want to check it out!
One thing annoyed me. With John Mason as a Christian writer, I felt that he spent too little time talking about the power of God, or having God on your side, or looking to God for encouragement and motivation. Instead, he spent most of his time talking about digging your feet in and simply standing up for whatever it is you’re trying to do.
If you see this at your library or another book place that you frequent, be sure to pick it up! It’s worth it. 🙂
