I am thrilled to be doing a book review blog swap with Michelle Calloway, aka, “A Swirl Girl.” Michelle is here today sharing her thoughts about the new book being released next week by Jeff Goins. I hope you will take a few minutes to read her great review, say hello in the comments section, and then head over to visit her online home here.
I’m excited about this opportunity to swap reviews and blog posts with Eileen Knowles. We were both privileged to be assigned to the launch team for Wrecked, a new book by Jeff Goins. I’m humbled to be invited to Eileen’s online home, and I welcome her into mine!
“To be wrecked begins with an experience that pulls you out of your comfort zone and self-centeredness, whether you want it to or not.” Thus is the compelling definition of what it means to be wrecked, and the premise of Goins’ book.
Wrecked is a book I took in ever so slowly, savoring each word – much like I do when I’m sipping on the best-made white chocolate mocha that my neighborhood Starbucks has to offer. I had to take my time to read this book because so much of it provoked and challenged me.
Wrecked explores our innate need to find worth and significance, to matter and make a difference in a world inhabited by over seven billion people. Thus, Jeff’s statement, “I want to be the kind of person who doesn’t stall, who faces a decision and boldly steps into it, aware of all the other opportunities I’m missing. I don’t want to be afraid of what I’m missing; instead, I want to embrace what I get to experience” spoke expressly to my heart and mind because it echoes the thoughts and sentiment of my heart. For me, being Wrecked is not an experience I want to run away from, it’s something I want to run to.
If you’re looking for the inspiration and motivation to change your paradigm, come out of your comfort zone, and receive affirmation for your desires to impact and influence your world, then Wrecked is the book for you. Read it, and watch your life change. Read it – and be wrecked.
The release date of WRECKED is August 1. Waiting to purchase the book after the release date affords you the opportunity to receive more than $150 in free gifts. Details and the sign up form are available here.
