Listen. Listen carefully. Listen with your heart. Hear God calling to you. He wants your God-inspired dreams to come true. He wants you to help make His world all He knows it can be. He is for you. Cheering for you. And if God is for us, how can we do anything but believe that our best possible future is within our grasp?
Pastor and leadership expert Terry A. Smith has seen the transformation. From fear-based hesitation to faith-based confidence. From conventional, not-quite-fulfilling life to proactive, best, abundant life.
It is possible for you.
But Smith is not asking you to take his word for it. From the Old Testament to Jesus, from Augustine to John Calvin to Eugene Peterson, from Peter Drucker to Seth Godin, Smith has assembled a dazzling host of stories and ideas to support his proposition: We are each called to reach our full potential, to marshal all our resources and step out in faith.We can Live Ten, and it will not just change us; it will change the world.
dgreegorMIAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Book to InspireNovember 26, 2013dgreegorMIAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5John 10:10 "I have come that you may have life and have it to the full." Are you living a life that is full? Does life present itself as an opportunity for joy and success? These questions and more are the subject of Terry Smith's book: Live 10.
In his book, Smith challenges the reader to realize that life is much more than just eating, sleeping; existing. He encourages and spurs each person to reach his/her maximum potential that is offered by a life fully devoted and committed to God. He goes about this spurring by dividing the book into seven parts.
The first part is Awaken. The reader is encourage to wake up from the notion that life is something that God gives each of us and how we are to use our lives to be more than just bodies.
The second part is Discover. This section goes into discovering what God sees and how to align our vision with His.
The third part is Imagine. Imagine if everyone had the audacity to be creative, adventurous, bold, daring, and unstoppable. Smith gives many reason why this should be the case with one of those reasons being: God is with you when you do His work. If God is with you, who can stop you?
The fourth part is Grow. This has to do with each person continually growing in who they are as a person and ultimately as a child of God. I particularly like the last chapter in this section: Keep Doing the Right Things. How often many are discouraged and give up when continue to do what is right should never be compromised.
The fifth part is Act. This is a no-brainer. If you know you should do something...DO IT. Don't shirk your responsibility if you see a need.
The sixth part is Lead. Everyone is a leader is the overarching message of this section. From there each chapter gives instruction on who a leader is and what a leader does. A great chapter in itself for those aspiring to lead.
The final part is Go. This section is about moving when times get rough and hard. Don't let circumstances distract you from your God-given vision. The journey may not be easy but it is worth the effort.
Such a great book that I found myself through the first third in one sitting. I kept reading and digesting. One thing that is nice is that each chapter is short for reflection and each part has some reflection questions at the end. I highly recommend this book and encourage those coming out of high school and going into college to read this.

mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A good Christian self-help bookOctober 24, 2013mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Author Terry A. Smith is the lead pastor of Life Christian Church in West Orange, New Jersey. Terry is also the cofounder of the New York City Leadership Center and is an instructor in its Leadership Fellows program. A sought after public speaker, Terry is now the author of "Live 10; jump start the best version of your life."
But enough about Terry. Recently I put on a little weight. Actually, I am the heaviest I have ever been and so I fell victim to the body builder on TV yelling at me to get in shape and I bought his work out DVDs for three easy payments of 'I can't remember.'
The work out plan is simple - exercise every day for 30 days and the pounds will just melt off. Well suffice it to say the DVDs are good - and if I put then in the player and actually followed along, I might loose the weight. The point is I bought them to motivate me, but I still need to do the work.
Terry's "Live 10" book is a lot like that. Live 10 is a motivational self-help book much like many others. Each chapter is four to five pages long and the book break down into a 30 day program. Yes, Terry is a Christian and the book has a Christian voice, but the book isn't trying to make you a disciple of Christ in 30 days, or even a better Christian, it's end goal is to make you a "better person."
It's a locker room talk, it's a motivational speech, it's a set of really good exercise DVDs. If you're looking for a self-help improvement book with a Christian view - this is a good one to pick up.
