Let's face it. The world can be a very negative place. All you have to do is turn on the news, take a walk under a bridge here in New Orleans and see the mattresses of the homeless, or sit alone for a long enough time that every misstep you've taken in life will cloud your mind with self doubt. With so much negatively out there, how does a person live a positive life? How does s/he make a difference, when so many people seem to have given up, falling somewhere between fatalist fallacies and Machiavellian maneuverings? We are all so limited by mortality and by our own beliefs, the ones we've been taught and the ones we teach ourselves. How does a person rise above it all in the spirit of love?
Sandra B. Tate has the answers to these questions and many more. She creates a "scientific method" to overcoming life's struggles and moving towards a positive and fulfilling life. The book speaks heavily of having self value, knowing who you are in order to know what you truly want and what you truly need, as well as knowing where you are in order to know where you're going vs where you want to go vs where you really need to go.
What I love about this book is that it isn't vague at all and it is very instructional. There are exercises, and as a teacher, I greatly appreciate these writing prompts because they are quite thought-provoking. I also love the book being full of great quotes. Sandra is very specific in her descriptions and in her advice. There are sections dedicated to improving your health, turning the negative thoughts, habits, and experiences into a foundation of lessons learned and positive growth, and there are plenty of example given and findings to support Sandra's message that while the world can be a negative place, it's full of beauty and full of chances for success.
I have recommended this wonderful book to so many of my friends. I'm honored to know Sandra B. Tate. She's a truly caring person and it's reflected in this outstanding work of hers. She may be the ballsy coach, but this book was clearly written from the heart.
