What's Stopping You? Face Your Fears, Ignite Your Passion, and Activate Your Dreams


Loved it! 😍

Learn how to stop blocking yourself from being the person you were meant to be.

Every now and then I need to read something to give me a little kick in the behind and some motivation to stop blocking myself from being scared. Recently, this motivation came from reading What's Stopping You? Face your fears, ignite your passion and activate your dreams. The book is broken up into six sections: "Tips for the Journey", "Encouragement for Your Journey", "What Is Stopping You?", "Call to Action", and "Book Discussion Questions". There also is a free companion course that goes along with the book - you can either do it after you finish the book or go along with it as you read the book. I believe the most important takeaway from this book is this: "No one can keep you from being you but YOU."

I found that throughout the book there were some valuable tips that you can easily apply to your current actions and others that may give you a struggle. The activation questions included in the areas that I personally am struggling with were eye opening. They allowed me to focus on certain aspects of myself and avoid behaviors that are blocking me from realizing my potential. Personally, I learn better when things are broken down into smaller bite-size questions as this book has done. Thinking about it all at once can be very overwhelming. Figuring out which small steps to take to move forward is something that works well for me and why this book should resonate with many.

This book is for anyone who may be wanting to take a leap - a new job, a new career, going back to school, starting your own business...anything that you might be afraid to take on! This book will give you the tools you need to access the abilities you already have within you, no matter your age! And remember - just keep going!
