sarahneufeld.co5 Stars Out Of 5Dream Big draws you into the deeply personal and introspectiveJune 24, 2020sarahneufeld.coQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Where you are today is simply the harbour from which your ship is about to sail. Cut loose the lines. The horizon is where you're heading because it's where your ambitions reside."
Imagine that you are embarking on an expedition.
Consider this book as the roadmap gifted to you by a seasoned explorer.
Bob isn't blazing the trail for you, because it's your journey to tread. But, he is equipping you with the steps, resources and all of the encouragement you need to succeed.
In Dream Big, Bob Goff lays out how to prepare, determine your goals, examine the possibilities, launch and land.
Personally, I'm grateful to have this valuable guide for the road to ambition that points back to Jesus at every turn.
ae24 Stars Out Of 5good stuffJune 25, 2020ae2Having recently read and loved Everybody, Always, I was very excited to read a new book by Bob Goff. This book is very readable, and I could easily imagine myself attending a conference with Goff as the speaker, sharing his stories and insights. That said, I did think some things seemed repetitive and like Goff used 50 words to make sure he hammered home an idea that readers could get in 20 words. There are lots of good insights, but I also felt like it was a little disjointed. (But I think if you sat down and worked through the questions at the end, then it would be helpful and keep you on track.) I liked the tone, which was positive and encouraging. One thing that did stand out to me is that it seems like Goff was writing from a place of privilege--he owns boats and planes and lodges in Canada and stuff--and while he definitely has done a lot of good with his wealth, it could make his experiences hard for some readers to relate to. It's easy to talk about quitting your law firm when you've got the money to do it; it's not so easy to quit your job to pursue another ambition when you're struggling to make it. Overall, I definitely liked the ideas and I'd love to listen to Goff as a motivational speaker.
I read an ARc provided by the publisher via NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

CherryPie04203 Stars Out Of 5DisappointedJuly 13, 2021CherryPie0420Quality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Dream Big was not what I was expecting and I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed. I had high hopes at the beginning, as the book has a strong start, but I quickly learned that the introduction was pretty much all there is to it. The rest of the book felt like nothing more than personal stories and anecdotes, lacking the advice and sustenance that I was craving. I do have to say that the stories did help me better understand and connect with the author on a more personal level, and really helped me understand where he was coming from, but it didn't go deeper than that.
This is the first book that I've read by this author and after reading the raving reviews I had high hopes, but it just fell flat for me. There were a few good points that were brought up, and got me thinking, but nothing was groundbreaking by any means, and was more general in nature, lacking the depth that I was hoping for. I really wanted to love Dream Big, and be further on my journey of self-discovery after reading it, but sadly I am still where I begun. I am giving it three stars because the writing is good, and I did enjoy the stories, but as far as personal growth, I am stunted and sad.
