Pursuing his "Dream could cause him a lot of discomfort. He would have to do unfamiliar things in unfamiliar places" (22). His journey continues through the Waste Land, where Ordinary realizes he changed! "His trip through the Waste Land had not been a Waste. Now he was prepared for what lay ahead, no matter how hard" (40).
"[E]ach time you break through a Comfort Zone, the area of your comfort increases. You become comfortable with more and more things. You could stay there, of course, but a Dream is a person whose life is in motion" (97).
This was powerful to read because of the past school year and pushing through tough situations to pursue my dreams. It has helped me grieve parts of my journey and has given me hope for the rest! I highly recommend this book!
I am neither bitter, nor anxious because of my failure, because I am a realist and face life as it IS, rather than how I wish it would have been. Keep on Dreaming folks, you may be one of the lucky ones who 'climbs that mountain' as the book reveals. I sure do hope so for everyone! Blessings and Peace.
I thought the book was thought-provoking and I am inspired to keep moving forward with my Dream. This is a great book for anyone who desires to follow those dreams that God has placed in their hearts and make this work a better place.
I just had to buy the actual book so i can let my employees read it and keep in my library.

However, to be fair, it left me a little cold. It's a great book if you've identified what your dream is, and just lack the motivation to go after it; but if you don't really have a concrete idea of where you want to go, then the amount of material on what to do to identify your dreams is precious little.
Having said that, I've known many people who LOVE this book and will happily recommend it to all their friends. So, don't let me put you off, give it a try. I bought a 'Used' copy for a fraction of the Kindle or new price, and was impressed by the quality for such a low price.
