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.

A truly inspiring work

Most motivational autobiographies lose their impact once you realize they were written by (or ghostwritten for) someone who was born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Esmie, however, is not someone who has was born under such a lucky star, and this her own personal work, which I appreciate. Things were rough from the start for her. Just like many of us, she has had to claw her way up to get to where she now is, but she has actually succeeded in reaching a high level of success not many do. It's not just a candid autobiography, though, this also a thoughtfully crafted manual on how anyone, no matter where they began or where are in life, can harness their innate power, find happiness, and achieve fulfillment in their own way.

Must listen

There are alot of emotions in this audiobook, and the narrator does a great job of letting us know it. There's an interesting story that can be a movie. This is an inspirational audiobook that aims to help us overcome stress, smash our worries, embrace challenges, improve our self-discipline and decrease busyness. I highly recommend it to anyone who feels like their life is on the wrong path and is ready to face their challenges.

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.
