Tony describes the road that he has taken through life from early childhood all the way to the time that he wrote this book in 2008. He explains the difficult decisions that he had to make and how his relationship and faith in God helped him through the most challenging times and in the end made him a better person. Tony also tells his successes and how he truly believes the Lord used previous life experiences to prepare him for similar future ones.
Whether you are a football fan or not this book is extremely relatable and motivational. Tony draws on his career as an NFL player and coach because that is where he experienced some of his biggest challenges, but he also builds on the toughest times that his family endured. His ability to correlate a personal example to the numerous types of situations that we as humans face daily was spectacular. Tony does an amazing job of not only stating his regrets and contentment, but also elaborates on what signs he saw from God and how he was able to later reflect on them.
The effect of this book has made me want to change my way of living by constantly glorifying God and following his lead. Dungy also provided me with inspiration to continuously perform acts of kindness, regardless of its size because it could be something that changes a person’s life, as it did in his case. “Quiet Strength” was very deserving of its Bestseller accolade and is very much recommended for anyone interested in living a happier and more rewarding lifestyle.
