Faulkner has an expert and personal way to share those life lessons. Critics -- hers is NOT a FOX news approach; it is the approach of leading memoir writers and teachers-writers-leaders in the personal achievement field. I’ve read and listened to hundreds of motivational-success books and programs in that field. This book is at the top of my admired and follow-through list. I know it will continue to inspire and change me for the better.
Just look at the table of contents and the 9 RULES and see what could zero in on your needs and interests. “Deal with Your Demons…Devise Your Mission…Unleash the Power of Integrity…Think Like a General.” Best of all is Rule #9 – “When Things Fall Apart, Believe You Have the Answer.” First hand Faulkner witnessed in her father’s life of service “a whole range of feelings from disappointment, frustration, and anger to profound sadness.” I can tune into that and the stories she shares reach my heart as well as my mind.
This book promises to help me “be strong in the broken places” and how to “learn by heart.” Faulkner shows how she dealt with racism and gender bias, being a black woman. From her sharing these lessons, I am strengthened. In fact, at times I was near tears with the courage and wisdom she shared with me. How she reacted to and dealt with the death of her mother, her dear dad’s wife, took me over the edge with her honesty and faith.
Out of all her truthfully-told personal experiences, Faulkner is helping me “build my emotional foundation.” With the personal losses I’ve experienced in the last few years, I really need that. It’s like Harris Faulkner is talking to me with with her heart and soul. Thanks.
NOTE: Some readers of this review, and some who haven’t read it at all, will automatically treat it negatively because of Faulkner’s tie-in with FOX NEWS. Others will do so because of their political hatreds. If that’s you, you lose. Sorry to be so direct. But think about it, will you, please? I want you to be blessed as I was and will continue to be.
