Wrecked Book Review by Guest Blogger Eileen Knowles

I am thrilled to be here today!  Swirl Girl and I have never met in person, in fact, we only just recently met online.   We are both members of the same book launch team, a team picked by Jeff Goins to help spread the word about his new book, WRECKED.

The fact that Michelle is on this team too, tells me something significant about her.  It tells me that we must share a common belief and passion.  This one:

You can’t make a difference and you can’t experience growth by sitting comfortably on the couch.  Difference makers do.  Difference makers get their hands dirty.

Jeff’s new book is about making the brave choices.  It’s about “listening to that still, small voice whispering, ‘Life is not about you.'” He reminds the reader that, “in order to experience the ultimate satisfaction, you must embrace the hard things. You must commit.”

WRECKED is a book that will make you think.  It will challenge you.  It will make you uncomfortable.  But, just as Jeff shares so well with the readers, that’s the best place for us to be.

“Ask people who have radically changed their lives, and they will tell you the best decisions they made were when they were uncomfortable.”

Living and breathing a wrecked life is about “stepping into the pain and discovering fulfillment in the most unlikely places.”

In his book, Jeff takes you to these places and the longer you journey with him through the stories and ideas he shares, the more inspired you become.

WRECKED hits the shelves on August 1st.  If you will wait to buy the book until it releases, Jeff is generously offering over $150 worth of free gifts.  You can check out all the details and sign up for this great deal HERE.

It’s time to get WRECKED.

“Once you’ve tasted a life that isn’t all about you, it can wreck you.”
From Wrecked, by Jeff Goins
