It is not over

Great advice for those who have tried before but failed to keep going because of "life." It's a great reminder to whatever God called to be your purpose or assignment in your life. this book helps to bring the winds back into your sails.

A great read

I was recommended this book with little background before diving in. There were so many powerful messages. I had no idea who this author was so I wasn’t completely prepared for the amount of biblical references made, however, it was great hearing different quotes with interpretations I hadn’t come across before. Religious or not, I strongly recommend checking this book out!

Very inspirational

I enjoyed this book. I have implemented (and sometimes failed and then implemented again) serval ideas from this book and am enjoying the fruit that it has produced in my life. It was fun to listen to and easy to apply to my life.

Inspiring

I’m a 20 year old college student, and this book hit big time in my life. I’ve never read a book and learned so much from it. I have a whole journal filled with notes and so many bookmarks I go look back to. Thank you so much Terri!

This book is exactly what I needed to hear!

I loved this book and truly didn't want to stop listening! I will definitely read it again AND buy a hard copy as well, to mark-up. There is so much great information packed into this book that it's hard to take it all in the first time around. I have found it to be encouraging and motivating and as I have set out to start my own business, it is exactly what I needed to hear! Thank you!

Life changing if you let it!

I liked this book so much I actually started having my kids get up an hour early and complete the “5 things” before school. What I would’ve given to have learned these principles at their age, I can’t imagine where I would be right now. Nonetheless, we’re all starting this journey together and we’ve seen God do amazing things in a short time. We’ve started a new family business (that has taken off right away) and I’m taking a new marketing strategy with a second business I have that’s proving to be effective. Most importantly, each of us is spending more time with God, we are hearing His voice, and growing in deeper relationship with Him! Terri, thank you for sharing your story. God is working through it to change lives!

A must-read over and over.

I love Terri's easy, practical way of encouraging Christians to excellence using scripture. She has really helped me overcome the poverty mindset I was raised with. From beginning to end its all about a disciplined lifestyle. The twelve weren't called "disciples" for nothing!

Empty calories

I’m sorry I bought this book on recommendation and what a waste. I want my credit point back. I found Terri to be incredibly judge mental calling people winner and losers. The two things that I liked I could of gotten out of a fortune cookie. Won’t recommend her books.

Amazing! Just what I needed right now in my life.

I loved the fact that the role models used spanned both secular and religious influences. I also learnt practical easy-to-do steps for the formation of habits or routines. A bit glad it doesn’t talk much about the science of habit formation as the few mentions, which validated the points mentioned, were just enough and not some of the complex materials I have encountered in the past. It was a straightforward easy to understand and apply book. God bless you Terri!

Excellent

I wish I had bought this as a physical book because it would be full of underlining and highlighting and would have pages tabbed to come back to. Very well written with clear steps. And enjoyable listen!

Get it!

Her story is definitely relevant to how some of us live our lives day to day, very mundane and the same boring routine. I love how she transformed a bad situation into a good one. This book has some great tips and tricks to take away with you and create into good habits.

Inspiring

I was a little sceptical to start with, but less than a chapter in, I was hooked. Full of key messages and Incorporating Christian values and bible verses was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.

Brilliant- very uplifting

Really enjoyed this, will definitely read further material from her. I always think it’s a nice personalised touch when the author themselves is the narrator. A must listen.
