If you have any fear, any doubt, or any thing standing between you and your greatness - this is the book for you! Dixie really does blow it up. Never be afraid of fear. Be afraid if you don't have any fear, because odds are, you're living a life of mediocrity. This book is a wake up call to live big.

"Just Blow it Up" is contains over 200 power packed pages of practical personal principles for creating and enjoying personal success. I found an applicable "take away" on nearly every page. Dixie Gillaspie provides the tools, ammunition, and a plan of attack for facing the insurmountable brick walls that keep you from accomplishing your life dreams and purpose.

Dixie inspires the reader to see and recognize the possibilities and opportunities around them that will help them move their dreams from fantasies to realities. The same principles apply whether your dreams are grandiose, your projects are major, or you are dealing with small routine speed bump size obstacles. I found her explanation of the process of vision, passion, and belief to be enlightening. She also helped me understand the importance of confidence, validation, and impetus.

Illustrations are drawn from Dixie's own experiences and from shared analogies and examples from her Blast Thru Coaching sessions. Her writing is focused and articulate. She is highly respected among her peers as a gifted communicator.

The book is divided into four parts, in a logical sequence, equipping the reader with a "dynamite toolbox" to set off the four blasting caps to blow up the walls that have kept you from accomplishing your life dreams and purpose. Highly motivational - Highly recommended.

I read this book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down.

But after finishing the book, I realized I've just begun. I don't plan to bury this book on the shelf. I plan to crack it open...often.

Dixie is so full of wisdom and so gifted in how she shares it. She writes with authority, humor, and empathy. As I read this book, I felt Dixie push me, joke with me, and (best of all) understand me. She gets it. She gets me. She gets you. This is not one of those "get-over-it," "just do it," dime-a-dozen self-help books loaded with cliches and hollow admonitions. This is more like an encouraging, yet challenging, letter from an old friend who helps you recognize your fears and identify the walls you have erected between your dreams and their realization. Dixie ends the "letter" by giving you a clear, manageable blueprint to blow up those walls.

For her email subscribers, Dixie delivers a "Daily Dose of Dynamite." Each page of this book, each story she shares is like an extra dose of dynamite. So after reading the book in a few hours, I now plan to read it again -- one dose at a time -- over a few months. It's the right medicine to help me blow up those walls!

I am an instructor at a four-year college, where I teach a student success course designed for students who are "not quite ready" to be in college, meaning that they did not score high enough on the ACT to go into college-level courses. Dixie's book simply resonates with the types of messages these students need to hear. Most of them have spent a lifetime NOT being successful and are full of limiting beliefs and the self-talk and behaviors of people who have learned to be Victims (just like the adult elephant described in Chapter 21!).

I love the conversational tone of the book; I believe my students would enjoy reading it, and with Dixie's permission, I'm going to be using parts of it to supplement my classroom instruction!!!

Great job, Ms. Dynamite!!!

The book's most powerful takeaway for me was the section on blasting caps - the 4 questions you can ask yourself when faced with an obstacle. This very simple exercise will transform the way you think about problems and limitations (or perceived limitations). If you are a person who often says, "I can't do this" or focuses on the problems in your life instead of finding the solutions, you'll gain a great deal of insight from Dixie's very practical and actionable book.

I'm pretty skeptical of these types of books because I don't respond well to "you can do it!" messages. This book is not like that. It caused me to be introspective, recognize my fears and my "I can't because..." thoughts. It also helped me see how I build walls for my own children by giving them a list of things to consider when they want to follow their dreams instead of giving them the tools to blow up their own walls. I've had a hard time pulling all the pieces of my life together and deciding which mess is my message. I'm finally starting to figure it out and this book helped me get there.

In the spirit of full disclosure I am a friend, former client, colleague and very modest contributor to this book. That being said, I can honestly say that this is a book you really should read...and re-read. Brick walls, roadblocks, challenges, yeah but's - call them what you will but we all have them. What Dixie provides is a proven approach to identify, assess and then eliminate those hindrances. What's the payoff? Simple, prepare to realize the incredible benefits and blessings that result.
