I read this book twice. Now, I’m on the third round. Why? It’s a great daily guide to reshoring your path to success—however you define it. So why all the continued readings? The book is designed to give you a few challenges at the end of each chapter—there are 94—that if you accept will help you outline your path to positive change. Presented mostly in the form of questions, the challenges ask you to explore both the benefits of intentional change alongside the actions required to do so, all in the format of SMART goals.
I’m loving author Marc Reklau’s little bites of suggested change presented in this book.
The little pieces of wisdom that absorbed and acted upon would make big dents in unproductive or listless habits. Of course, so many of the success and self-help books (including the ones on this site) are built on the author’s proven path of outcomes. But each one is (mostly) different in their style, approach and suggested advice. The true difference lies in the reader. In other words, when the student is ready the teacher will come.
Perhaps you’ve heard this all before, but for some reason have yet to act on it.
Don’t lose heart. Reklau also offers insight on why your beliefs and attitudes present deeply ingrained obstacles to success and how you can go about re-examining them. Doing so can unlock awareness and help deconstruct old patterns. But there is more needed. You need to revisit your attitude about change and of course, what you deserve in your life. This takes work in honing new habits.
Let me go back to the little bites. You’re not in this alone, nor are you slapped with a ginormous mountain of expectations that you will close the book and walk away. Rather, you’re asked to gently move the needle a little each day until you become unstuck. You have each short chapter as your guide and inspiration and the challenges to help inspire movement. If you’re not into a big long read that makes you dig for enlightenment, then 30 Days is the perfect book for you. What are you waiting for?
