4.0 out of 5 starsGreat like the other books
Reviewed in the United States on March 30, 2020
Hi Lynn this is my third book I have listened to on Audible. But one thing that bothered me the most in this book is you kept emphasizing on people who are single, alone, and that have nothing, live with cats. It highly offended me because I grew up with cats and so do other people and they do not suffer from problems. Reality check, you got single people with no success and live alone with no living thing around them. People who are single and lonely may have a dog or several dogs. Or maybe live with some other animal besides cats or dogs. And there’s nothing wrong with that either. In fact it’s more relaxing and enlightening to have pet in your life than have a human hurt your feelings or worry so much if a significant other will last in your life. In my late in age, I realize its hard to find a mate to spend time with and to share a relationship with. After going through drama, a person might as well not get involved with dating and be alone. At least with a pet, they’re not bound to cheat on you or if you cuddle with them one night, they will never leave you. Think about it.
4.0 out of 5 starsFor those those needing an extra push in area of life

A lover of self-help books, I love the attempt the author makes when trying to convey the reader to make certain moves to accomplish success. Some provide activities and reflection pages. Others may come off as a minister while doing their best to coach you into achieving success.Just recently, I started listening to audio books. With only three currently on my “audible list,” some require more time and even days to get through the entirety of an author’s “vocal book.” One inparticular that I willing completed in less than two days was Survive…Live…or Thrive.
Author L. Lynn Gillard in my opinion is everyday people. Her word choice was indeed comprehendible. Not using a lot words that would require a dictionary for one to understand, the delivery of her message is indeed simple, and to the point. What I enjoyed the most about this audio was how she provided insight on what individuals should do in order to get going in the right direction. For example something as simple as creating a “written plan.”
I wholeheartedly respected the fact that she placed emphasis on creating residual income. In today’s world with the ups and downs of jobs no longer providing stability, this fact provided by this author let me know that she certainly knows what she’s talking about.
If you’re like me; an avid reader getting into audio books, add Survive…Live…or Thrive to your collection today. It’s one that you will enjoy listening and learning from at the same time.

Survive, Live or Thrive is an awesome motivations book that hits home and hits home hard. I listened in bed before I fell asleep, and it touched on so many topics that affect every one of us on a daily basis. From self-esteem issues, not allowing others' opinions derail us from following our dreams, to self-love as being essential for happiness and success. Author, L. Lynn Gilliard goes into great detail when talking about relationships and the importance of what you should, and should not, accept from them in life. In my opinion, this audio book is an essential for anyone who commutes to work, has waiting time, or even to get away from television or video games for a while. This is nourishment for the soul, and is healing, affirming, and lets you know it's ok to be you. I highly recommend to everyone.
