Publisher's Description

In You’re Stronger Than You Think, psychologist Dr. Les Parrott helps you access the power to do what you feel you can’t. With practical insights and hard-earned wisdom, he shows you that by changing how you think, understanding what you feel, and using the power that lies untapped deep in your soul, you can summon strength you didn’t know you had—strength that ultimately comes from God. The secret to tapping into your inner strength is not about positive thinking or pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. Instead, it’s about leveraging your strengths and overcoming your weaknesses to reveal a surprising inner-power that God has placed deep in your heart. Using a counterintuitive approach to overcoming hardship, You’re Stronger Than You Think will help you find the unexpected power you need to pass through both the everyday and extraordinary tests of life.

    I just finished reading "You're Stronger Than You Think" by Dr. Les Parrott. On the cover, this book promises to teach readers how to leverage their strengths. It also says, on the back cover, that this strength ultimately comes from God. But Parrott doesn't talk much about that—even in the chapters about "The Power of Your Soul."

    I was a little disappointed in this book. I chose it from Tyndale House Publisher's selection of books for review because I've come across this concept of leveraging strengths in a few places over the past year and was curious to learn more. This book tells me why I should leverage the strengths of my mind, heart, and soul, but, to learn more about my personal strengths and how to leverage them, I need to take the online strength profile (for a small fee) and purchase the life application workbook. Both are optional tools, but the book alone has very little to offer practically.

    The book is divided into six chapters in three sections: "The Power of Your Mind," "The Power of Your Heart," and "The Power of Your Soul." Of the three, I was most intrigued by "The Power of Your Heart." I especially liked the first chapter in this section—"Feel Vulnerable: There's Strength in Owning Your Weakness." Each of the three sections ends with a brief personal evaluation and a few simple life application ideas. The strength of this book is a bit of common sense encouragement for those who feel they can't accomplish what they want.

    We hope for a better future yet our strength fades when we actually get to living life. Parrott says two experiences keep us from living the life we long for: hope deferred and hope dashed. He has written this book to show us where and how to find the strength we're looking for.

    He has divided the book into three parts. He writes that we can find power in our minds when we clear our heads and when we think expectantly. We can find strength in our hearts when we own our weaknesses and when we feel connected. We find power in our souls when we surrender our egos and when we take bold risks.

    Parrott does not provide any easy steps. It all comes down to a matter of the will, I think. "Take the energy it takes to stay stuck in your suffering and use it to write a new chapter in your life." (132)

    At the end of the books he writes about passion. Living with passion is worth the risk. But passion does not just appear. It is an inside job, coming from a burning commitment.

    There is nothing profoundly new in this book. Parrott draws from many sources, including behavioral studies. His premise is that each of us has more strength in us than we realize. He gives some practical ideas in finding and developing that strength. It still is a matter of the will, I think. He suggests getting some friends to help along the pathway to being a stronger person.

    Just a note about additional resources for this book. To receive the full benefit of this book, one would need to complete an online Strength Profile, as a cost. There is also a workbook Parrott recommends, again, at an additional cost.

    Nonetheless, one can benefit from reading this book. You won't find any quick answers. You will find ways to get in touch with the power you didn't know you had.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
