Suppose I turned on a flashlight in a well lit room. Most people would never even notice it was on. It would fail to release the power of the flashlight. However if I turned on the flashlight in a darkened room everyone would see the light and the full potential of the flashlight would be revealed. This is similar to how Mr. Bailey feels about us. We all have potential within us, we have the power to be great. Yet a lot of us never realize that potential because we are doing things that we were not set up to accomplish and therefore we hate our jobs and feel lost. In seven chapters Mr. Bailey explains how we can shift our brilliance from the unfruitful things we are doing and start working on that which we were designed to accomplish. I believe Mr. Bailey has given us a great tool to use in changing what we do to becoming what we were designed to accomplish. This is a great gift to give to friends and family so it can help them as well.

Review Title: Options:Take Stock of Yourself (review of Shift Your Brilliance by Simon T. Bailey)
Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
Simon T. Bailey delivers his message with a smile that shines through his writing. This is a positive and forward thinking book that suggests looking back to see where you've been and what you've done to get to the point where you are. And then you are to consider options of what you might change to give yourself a new edge over what you have done before and what others are doing. Your gifts can shine when they are fully discovered, released and polished. Simon offers some assessment tools in the book and has a great list of recommended books for additional inspiration. The book is very positive yet realistic at the same time. He realizes that people have up and down days, but the gist is that the person needs to take action to be moving in the direction of where they can let their individual God given brillance shine.
I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from bookfun.org and the author in exchange for my honest review. I believe most people will find this book encouraging and helpful during the productive years of their lives. College students will benefit from Simon's book as a good background resource as they start out in their chosen field. Also, I think it will be especially helpful for anyone who is in a supervisory role at work to read for help in developing their employees' appreciation of their role in the work environment.
This book, the author writes, is for people "who want to shift toward more positive thinking and are ready to work to create a better future..."
It is Bailey's belief that human beings are pre-wired to be brilliant but we settle for less. We need to shift our thinking and he gives many examples of people and businesses experiencing success by doing so. He provides a questionnaire to help us identify if we need a shift in thinking.
He provides the steps to get moving:
See differently (change your mindset, clear your vision)
Harness the power of You, Inc.
Ignite a fresh vision
Fuel your mind (be a life long learner)
Take the wheel (ownership, maybe u-turns)
Engage your gears (maximizing your energy)
Restart your engine (how to know when it is time)
This is a good book of encouragement, to assess where you are, to think of where you can be, and instruction on how to get there. I really liked his section on rejection - what a shift in thinking!
He has added reflection questions after each chapter.
Food for thought: "Each moment of each day, you have the choice to go beyond your potential." (132)
I received a complimentary ARC of this book through the Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
This book will challenge how you currently look at life and the future. It will encourage you to take control and "shift your brilliance" or path.
I liked how the beginning answered "why" anyone would want to make these changes. The author uses lots of examples from his own life as well as experiences from other well-known people. The body of the book takes you step by step through the process of changing your outlook and , ultimately, your life. The steps are clearly stated with practical suggestions and guidance.
The summary at the end and the reading list will keep you on the right path. It's easy to read a little at a time and take the time to absorb the lessons. Everyone will be able to take something positive away from this reading experience.
I received this book from Bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
Award winning author and Leadership Catalyst, Simon T. Bailey challenges his readers to take seven action steps that will help them "shift into drive" and accelerate them on the road to achieving personal success. These seven practical principles are presented in a format which can be restated to become positive affirmations, action steps, or guidelines for writing a personal mission statement.
Bailey helps the reader see and understand things in a new fresh way enabling them to focus energy more effectively through futuristic thinking. I appreciated Bailey's openness and honest self-appraisal in the incidents, examples, and illustrations taken from his own life lessons which re-enforce his unique insights and power principles.
"Shift Your Brilliance" came to my attention at a time when I had reached a plateau, an impasse between being liberated from the limitations of my past and a readiness to make a deeper commitment to step out of my comfort zone to shift from average to a more meaningful new significance." Simon Bailey provided the impetus and motivation I needed to take a risk, free myself to live my future now by following my heart to "own the moment."
Bailey's writing is innovative with a creative spark that infuses an infectious brilliance in the reader. Highly motivational; a must read for leaders in business, government, education, and in the church community.
