Before listening I was doing many of the suggested things. But fear always cropped up. Now I have some validation for what I do as well as tools to punch that darn fear where it hurts! Thanks Jon Acuff!
I listen to 2 to 3 audiobooks a month. This was the most enjoyable, humorous, and actionable book I've listened to in the last year and a half. I hope I some day get to meet Jon thank him for starting me on the road to Awesome.
Excellent listen. Start is the "how to" guide to life and your career. MUST READ.
Thank you Jon. Fantastic book. Very personable. Very real. No hype or bluster. I appreciate your honesty and candor. Useful plus funny and enjoyable too. I plan to listen to this book at least a few more times. Jon please read Quitter and Do Over on Audible too. I don't have time to read with my eyes, just my ears.
One of my favorite stories from the book was the story of Alex Honnold, the one legged mountain climber who is in his element when he is in the mountains, in spite of of his limitations. I also enjoyed the question posed something along the lines of : who are you not to pursue your dreams? Your light helps other people shine. Imagine if the person that found the cure for X had not? START.
Witty,relatable,stories and encouragement.
Success is defined only by you. Most sucessful people have a daily routines and a faith in themsevles (confidence) and go through the different stages of the pursuit of their goals. That gets you to the best version of you. Who knows whom you might be in the future? Be your secret self :)
I find Mr. Acuff's stories and examples rather compelling. This is all good advice, laid out in an easy-to-digest format. (I also liked the fact that he did not shove his Christianity down the reader's throat like his boss Dave Ramsey does.) I liked it so much I listened to it twice in a row.
