    Smalls says he has written this book to help us discover the reservoir of strength and wisdom so we can get busy making our dreams come true. No one else can make me change for the better-, he writes, I am responsible for helping myself. (14) He does remind us that we have God's help.

    Smalls wants us to make better choices. He addresses areas that can hinder or help us: doubt belief, pride humility, fear courage, rejection affection, resentment affection, addiction devotion. He helps us break from the past, change habits, and much more. He illustrates his teaching with examples from his own life. He provides questions for reflection at the end of some chapters, as well as a prayer and encouragement for future action.

    There is good encouragement in this book to overcome many issues that hold us back. No detailed strategy is included however. The most helpful way to read this book would be with an accountability partner. A strategy would need to be developed and worked through based on the encouragement in this book. An accountability partner would be a great help in that process.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through The Book Club Network. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    I loved the way the book opened by the author asking, "What will it look like when your dreams come true?" That sure is a question to think about. We all have dreams about having great jobs, money, power, fame etc. but what would we do if it suddenly happened? Would we be ready for the outcome? I always had a dream of becoming a teacher. I loved teaching and wanted to share with others. I wanted to make a difference. But things got in the way and my dream never happened. One of the key things the author said that really spoke to me was, "You might want to start now by imagining what it would feel like to have finally made peace with your past." I loved his encouragement to move forward and "stop obsessing over your past." That sure was a heart check for me. I have allowed my past to keep me stuck where pain dwells.

    The book tells us that we don't need to change everything overnight but rather take baby steps. I know I can go full throttle when I want to change something. I lack the patience I need and sometimes I move to quickly without thinking everything through. One of the keys ingredients I forget to include is God. It's time to take a step back, close my eyes and focus on one thing at a time. I sure do know about disappointment and that causes me to say"well I tried and give up." What happened to my faith? Did I give up on hope? How many excuses will I find not to change?

    I found the book to have a great plan to guide readers to get rid of what has been "blockers in your life" and start taking steps to having a better life. I never though about fear being a bully. That one really grabbed my attention. I live with fear , anxiety and depression everyday . What I didn't realize that I have let those things bully me into feeling worthless . For me it is time to stand up and fight . I loved the tools he has given readers to become courageous and "face challenging tasks and confrontations." The more I delved into the book, the more I could feel something rising inside of me. I want to be free from my past, I want to stop being bullied by fear and I need to be courageous and go for for it.

    "We can literally change our lives simply by changing our minds."

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bookfun.org. The review is my honest opinion.
