Welcome to another book review here at Createyou86. This is one of those rare occurrences where James, the other half of Createyou86 gives you his side of the story. James was very excited when i told him that after all of the books i have been receiving, there would finally be one for him to read. James is a man strong in his faith, and is always eager to learn more so i let him take the reigns on this review.
As a man, sometimes i have a hard time explaining things, that i might want, need or desire. This doesn't only happen in my personal life, but in my spiritual, and emotional life as well. I don't mean to let it happen, but sometimes as a man i don't take the time to find the best of myself, or others as well. We [men] need to find the best in ourselves first. It is okay to believe in a higher power, in fact i would encourage you to weather it is God, or something else that you find comfort in, but regardless of our religion, or belief we need to learn ways to be better. For this review i chose the first 4 chapters to look at more in depth. For me, the first chapter set the tone for the entire book. Figuring yourself out is essential because you can't help anyone else in their life unless you are able to help yourself. This can be applied in many aspects such as love or giving advice. Knowing yourself will make you a better teacher, mentor, friend, husband, and person in general.
God has helped me in so many ways in my life. Through God i know that he is there for me no matter what time of the day, or day of the year. The second thing that i learned was that encouragement goes a long way. Weather we are wishing friends, family, or co-workers good luck, or just letting someone know that they can do something without a doubt it all comes down to encouragement equaling support. God supports us in everything that we do, and we should all support each other as well. The third thing that i learned is that asking questions shows that you truly care. There will come a time in life when you will want help. There may even be times when the people around us need help, and ways to show that we are truly invested in that person is to ask questions such as " How can i help?", or "Help me understand!"
This book has helped me in many ways, and i feel like i can always look back to it if i need guidance in any of the seventeen chapters in this book. There is always more to learn. I also enjoyed this book because the chapters were broken down into shorter parts within the chapter which made for easy reading, and comprehension. At the ends of the chapters there are several "Questions to Consider" along side a specific lesson for each chapter. I would recommend this book to any man young or old who is looking for themselves, and looking to build their faith, or just become a better person overall. I look forward to reviewing some other products in the future from a mans perspective.
