Inspirational and Exceptional

A beautiful book, inspirational and yet in some ways poignant. You feel what Esmie says, from her experiences and reflection. To help you motivate you on your own story and whatever may be holding you back from being your best you. You can break free. If you want it. And you will. Christina's read gives it the tone that encourages you, using Esmie's words. You want to do better, be better. I recommend this if you are struggling with any challenges. It definitely helped me. Christina's voice made me feel safe in reflecting on my own life as Esmie has urged. I feel I am ready to take the next steps. I have cheerleaders. In Esmie and Christina. I can do it. You can too.

Great Motivational Piece

If you are looking for some inspiration, then you have found the right book! The author uses her own personal story to elaborate on how to embrace challenges and overcome them. My personal favorite is how she gives you simple tactics to overcome your own challenges. This is a must read for anyone who thinks they can't overcome their current situation!

Marvelous knowledge, narration and writing!

The author is extremely talented at writing and sharing her story. I would buy this book for that fact alone. Second, the narration is super on point which makes the complete experience mesmerizing. However, the most important part is the knowledge enclosed, and that is well above the industry standard. I will refer all my friends to this book because this book has been pivotal on my journey to freedom.

Super Motivational!!

If you are stuck and not sure how to overcome and push on forward, this is the BOOK for you. It's super packed with the author's story of how she was able to face the challenges and step into her own power. The story was highly relatable to me and it's one book I will revisit at least once per month to stay on track

WOW!

I am always looking for ways to improve myself - especially from high achievers - so when I saw a book written by an Olympian, I had to pick it up. I expected to hear about mental toughness when training in a hyper competitive sport, but that's not what this book focuses on... it focuses on something even better! this book was written by an Olympian who knows all about discipline, training, and winning... but this Olympian didn't have the perfect life. Esmie tells about a life of hardship and regret. One where she got in her own way. And you know what? That is so much more relatable. I found imesurable wisdom in this book. I loved reading it. I loved how she tied her stories into the lesson and gave me an action plan on how I can fix the issues I am having in my everyday life. If you're looking for a book with a lot of answers that is written in a very interesting, engaging way then look no further because this is it.

Embrace your challenges to live authentically!

I appreciate the author Esmie Lawrence's courage to share her stories and her vulnerabilities. The wisdom she gained from life experiences and overcoming challenges are commendable. The two chapters that I find most relevant to me currently were the chapters that talk about stress management and decrease busyness. It reminds me of a book I'm currently reading--Essentialism by Greg Mckeown. With the current fast-paced lifestyle, it is so easy to get lost in the busyness of the world. The chapter was a good reminder for me to reflect what or who are the most important people to me. The book covers a few other useful advice, such as forgiving others and being disciplined. Given that Esmie is a former Olympian, her advice on being disciplined holds a solid ground.

Great read!

Lots of great chapters in this inspirational book, but I especially liked the authors personal experiences. It gives the book another dimension for sure. Her story is relatable in that she touches on how one should embrace challenges and tackle their fears. Everyone experiences challenges throughout life and this book is definitely a great guide for people to never give up and have some guidance on how to do that. I recommend this book!

Discover how to crush your fears.

Great personal journey that’ll have you embracing your challenges and turning your life around. Esmie takes her Olympian experience and shares her sage advice to becoming more successful in whatever you decide to pursue. I especially liked chapter 5 on How to Crush Your Fears. Good advice for overcoming this crippling mental attitude.
