Praise for Where Will You Go from Here?

“Valorie Burton navigates us through the maze of life’s uncertainty with the skill of a GPS system placing us back on course. For those who refuse to live the rest of their lives stuck on the side of the road, this book gives guidance!”
—Bishop T. D. Jakes, New York Times best-selling author, founder and senior pastor of The Potter’s House

 “This compelling book offers a hands-on approach to recovering—and thriving—after crisis. Valorie Burton provides well-researched solutions, practical help, and many examples of real people who have faced dark times of adversity and come out on the other end stronger for it. In these pages, readers will find hope and answers for how to progress from a place of pain and setback to hope and abundant life.”
—Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of For Women Only

“If you are in that ‘what now?’ place in your life, this is the book for you—filled with practical steps and profound principles to jump-start your comeback, but even more important, you’re repositioning for new levels of victory in your life. Valorie Burton speaks from experience as well as learned wisdom and offers the tools you need to master your life and get the results you desire.”

“I’ve never seen such a clear road map to full recovery as Valorie Burton has so vividly drawn in this phenomenal book. She doesn’t just help you arrive at a better destination; she inspires you to savor the journey every step of the way. I’ll be using Where Will You Go from Here? with many of my coaching clients!”

—Roland S. Martin, host/managing editor of Washington Watch (TV One cable network) and analyst for CNN and the Tom Joyner Morning Show

 “In her book Where Will You Go from Here? Valorie Burton has provided us with the perfect map for those times when we feel traumatized and can’t see the road in front of us.

For more than a decade, her books, speaking engagements and media appearances, have inspired and equipped readers and audiences to:

* Make major life changes that are exciting and scary at the same time.

In the summer of 1999, Valorie had an epiphany that confirmed her life purpose to inspire women to live more fulfilling lives. She was on a career path that looked successful but was unfulfilling, and despite her fears, Valorie took a leap of faith to pursue her dreams. The transformation has led her to write eight books, including Successful Women Think Differently, What's Really Holding You Back?, and Your 5-Minute Personal Coach.

Valorie helps readers and leaders discover their purpose and create a vision that's true to who they are. She helps people persevere until they reach their goals, even in the face of challenges, fears, and doubts.

Valorie's transparency and blend of personal stories, faith, and psychological research is engaging and practical. She is a columnist for Ebony Magazine and a frequent media contributor who has appeared in and on CNN, HLN, Dr. Oz, Oprah Magazine, Oprah Radio, The 700 Club, Essence, The Los Angeles Times, and many more.

I just finished reading, "Where Will You Go From Here?" by Valerie Burton. This is a honest, true-to-life book that will enable you to rebound when life does not go the way you planned. This is something that resonates with all of us at one point in our lives or another. We all have experienced situations in life that we would loved to have handled differently. This book by Valerie Burton teaches you resilience to walk through the rest of our lives with our chin up along with an extremely positive attitude that will encourage us to approach life with a Godly attitude and guide us to becoming triumphant in all of life's situations -- big or small. This book is definitely a keeper and a reference guide for life. Which in retrospect, is something all of us can use in life.

Format: Paperback
This book can best be summarized as when life throws you a curve ball, keep fighting your way through focusing on your faith, using a positive mindset and don't be afraid to revise your plan. I will surmise that this book will mean more to someone who is currently in a tumultuous situation. The book wasn't too long and it wasn't too preachy. It was just right.

First, I have to admit that I don't subscribe to the whole "life-coach" thing. I wouldn't pay someone to tell me what to do, be my cheerleader and create a life strategy for me (I have a mother for that). But for those who do, this book is a great resource for them. This book is full of encouragement, sprinkled with biblical principles for guidance.

The author also interspersed the book with inspirational stories from an assortment of people who faced misfortunes/hardships in their life. As I read the personal stories, I keep saying "wow!" For example, the author relayed a story in which her mother encouraged her to use a positive mindset because the power over life and death is in the tongue. I must say that I found most of the stories to be inspiring. In fact, my husband related to the passage on Roland Martin, a journalist that he watches on CNN. He kept saying to me, you can't tell what that man went through looking at his ascots today. Those stories are a testament on the fact that we don't know what struggles people have overcome to be where they are.

I encourage everyone, whether you are a positive thinker or not, to print out her 5 commitments and every month, repeat it to yourself.

1. I will not feel sorry for myself
2. I will not stare at the closed door
3. I will dig deep to unearth all the courage I need
4. I will direct my thoughts-my thoughts will not direct me
5.

Format: Paperback
There are times in our lives when we feel like we could bear the burdens and not grow weary in well doing if we just had someone to walk us through some of those trying times. Valorie Burton is a 'Life Coach' (a certified Personal and Executive Coach) and has written a book that is to be a companion guide for when life doesn't go quite like we plan. I chose this book to read this book as part of the Blogging for Books program with Waterbrook-Multnomah Publishers and received no payment for my review other than the privilege of being given this book for that purpose.

There are times, for all of us, that the unexpected happens. Relationships dissolve, loved ones die, accidents happen, jobs are lost...life just throws a curve ball that is so devastating that you're sure you won't recover from it. Step by step, Ms. Burton helps you to see that there is a purpose for everything and that 'Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out,' quote by John Wooden. If you know someone who is suffering in overwhelming struggles with life, two of the greatest gifts you could give them are #1. PRAYER and #2. THIS BOOK! And if you love to be able to give good, sound, G-dly advice to folks who are hurting, then this book should be a staple good on your shelf! Through the sharing of her life struggles, and those of others who examples she shares, you will see the process we all go through to get back on our feet and become better for having experienced it all. You can apply her concepts to all of life's struggles, large or small, and give a positive outlook when the days seem darkest. A good read and glad to have it residing on my shelf!

Format: Paperback
"Where will you go from here?" by Valorie Burton has some amazing life-coach tips inside. Her advice also references some generic Christianesque thoughts and a few Bible verses. Each chapter features a true story about someone who overcame a huge obstacle of some sort. All the ingredients are there to make a great book; but it just doesn't seem to come together. The core of her message are five life-coaching phrases:
1) I will not feel sorry for myself
2) I will not stare at the closed door
3) I will dig deep to unearth all the courage I need
4) I will direct my thoughts - my thoughts will not direct me
5) I will choose to believe all things work together for good.

After that, Valorie takes the reader through a thought journey:
1) figure out where you are in life and what exactly the damage is
2) look at your history to figure out how you got here
3) give a name to exactly what you're afraid of
4) look around for resources that will help you recover
5) figure out where to go now (same path? new path? redefine yourself?)
6) plot a course to the new destination
7) take charge of your thoughts
8) figure out how you're growing and share your experience with others

Overall, good life-coaching in a soft-Christian setting.
