Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Twenty years after founding the World Changers Church International, Dollar (Claim Your Victory Today) continues to offer advice on applying the Bible to everyday situations in pursuit of a prosperous life. Each easily digestible chapter—first broken down into a homily-esque message, followed by a recap, relevant scripture and an exercise—addresses the title's eight steps. Maintaining a natural but firm tone, Dollar vacillates between scriptural and personal experience to make his points. Those already familiar with his ministry will most likely find his suggestions relevant and helpful. However, seekers, especially those new to Christianity, may find parts of the second half of the book a bit vague when it comes to instructions such as come up with your own confessions based on God's Word when trying to form new habits or memorize Scriptures so you will have ammunition to cast down ungodly thoughts when working on self-discipline. While the advice may improve a reader's connection with God, more specific suggestions—whether of actual verses or even just how to find a certain verse—would better round out Dollar's blueprint for a godly life. (Jan. 2)

Dr. Creflo is an amazing God fearing man and this book is a nice addition to my collection. I love that he speaks in practical terms, then backs it up with scripture! This was a great book for me---as I started off 2008 with an executive level job and twins born yesterday....so I have many decisions to make and Dr. Dollar makes it much easier for me. This book is easy to read, but yet.....hard to follow (as far as making the right Godly decisions). Great book for the everyday parent, friend, coworker and spouse. Thanks.

Creflo Dollar presents 8 biblically based principles he believes will help readers live the life they dream about in 8 STEPS TO CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT. Each principle is presented with personal examples from Pastor Dollar's life along with numerous scripture references. He places a great deal of emphasis on the importance our thoughts play on our successes and failures, and on not allowing past experiences to cripple the future. He discusses the importance of serving God and having faith in Him, even when we are going through difficult times, and he argues that in doing so, healing often results. His personal example, depression after a loss in his family and his dedication to remaining committed to doing God's work, will inspire readers to do the same when faced with challenges of their own.

8 STEPS TO CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT is packed with practical tips and supporting scripture, however, the audio book version poses some unique challenges, despite the fact that Leonard Dozier did an excellent job reading. Many readers, like myself, tend to multi-task when listening to audio books and listen while driving or exercising. The challenge for multitaskers is that numerous scriptures are cited throughout, but not read. As a result, listeners need to keep a pen and pad handy so they can take notes and write down scriptures to look up later in order to get the most from this book. While I would rate the print version higher, I still recommend the audio version of 8 STEPS TO CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT, especially for those who may not otherwise find time to read it. In a perfect world, readers would purchase both versions, the audio for listening and the print version for further research.

In his book, "8 Steps to Create the Life You Want" author Dr. Creflo Dollar inspires the reader take a closer look at their life compared to God's Word. This has been helpful for me because I have been in a spiritual "rut" of sorts. By taking each step carefully with clear, focused attention, Dr. Dollar leaves nuggets, practial applications (or what I would call principles) and reminds the reader of the power created through spiritually developed words, thoughts, emotions, decisions, actions, habits and character which delivers us to our destiny -- and when the above are not founded upon the Word of God, we live beneath our privilages and often outside of God's will for us.

As a writer, I enjoy the book most because I can interact with practical applications by writing down areas of success in which I desire and searching the scripture related to these elements of success. Kinda like the research for which I was trained.

At less than $15, this is a book you'll want to purchase for others, share with your children and refer to when you feel like slipping backwards.

So what is your greatest fear in life? What do you feel you are missing?

I can honestly say that my greatest fear was of being homeless. I know what it's like to be homeless, and it's an awful situation to be in.

The problem though is that in many ways I believe I set myself up for this. I don't mean to sound harsh, but sometimes we can take actions based on how we think that will cause the things we fear to happen.

You can avoid giving into your fears and achieve the life you want if follow the steps Creflo Dollar has outlined in "8 Steps to Create the Life You Want."

One of the most important things I learned from reading this book is the importance of scripture and reading and studying scripture on a daily basis. One of the reasons scripture is so effective is that you can use it to reprogram your mind in a positive way. Also, you discover that fear and faith can't exist in the same space. If you have faith, you won't have fear, and it will change the way you think for the better. You won't fall prey to emotional thinking, which can too easily sabotage any efforts you take to succeed. It really is that simple.

It is unfortunate that too many churches don't emphasize how important scripture is. I think it's the reason so many churches are falling apart and dying. It's also the reason why so many Christians are failing in life, and they fail at a rate that is the same or higher as non believers (Divorce, finances, disease, etc).

There's more. Here are the eight steps:

1. Revolutionize Your Words
2. Overhaul Your Thinking
3. Take Charge of Your Emotions
4. Make Powerful Decisions
5. Evaluate Your Actions
6. Establish Healthy Habits
7. Develop Godly Character
8.
