Notes: Janelle Alex's Review
Wowza! I think I may need a second highlighter; mine's almost all used up marking so much wonderful insight from Mark Minard in his new book, The Story of YOU: Transforming Adversity Into Adventure, Taking Your Dreams To The Next Level and Beyond. This is not just another self-help book. In fact, Mark Minard beautifully and fluidly interweaves his journey and struggles into the deep well of wisdom he shares with you. His inspiration and strength not only come from numerous personal growth leaders, but from God. Reading The Story of YOU, you'll quickly come to realize that Mark didn't start from a place of promise and hope. He started from a youth and young adulthood filled with alcohol and exceptional anxiety. Even though he had very loving parents, he express how his choices put them through very difficult times. Picking up a book by Stephen King - of all people - opened the floodgates for Mark to take charge of his life, reveal promise and hope, and go after his dreams. The Story of YOU is broken into easy bite-sized chunks, so that anyone can grasp the concepts of what Minard is sharing. You'll also encounter very simple, yet exceptionally powerful, stick-figure drawings that coincide with the guidance to create your own personal transformation. Mr. Solid Dude, Mr. Negative Face, Mr. Mediocracy Face, and Mr. Perspective are all there to clearly show you what, where, why and how. To top it all off, Mark Minard shares the easiest and likely the most profound business plan that I've ever seen. In two steps, you'll be on your way - to personal transformation and to taking your dreams to the next level. If you want to uncover the real story of YOU, then Mark Minard's The Story of YOU is a must read...and a must do! As Mark says, "Knowledge + understanding + application = power."
