Book Review - You're Going to Survive

You're Going to Survive

About the Book
Life involves adversity: No matter what kind of career you’ve chosen, you’re going to deal with discouragement, frustration, and situations that are, shall we say, “less than ideal.” It could be a hysterical client who’s demanding a refund. Or a book that gets rejected…48 times and counting. Or a job interview that goes nowhere. Or watching your best friend get the exciting promotion that you wanted. Or a vicious one-star review that rattles your self-esteem and makes you question your talent, your identity, everything. When that moment arrives, open this book.

Defeat and getting through it: Inside, you’ll find inspiring true stories from all kinds of people—from authors, chefs, lawyers, website designers, and Broadway performers to personal stylists, jazz musicians, business consultants, non-profit fundraisers, and more—each describing one of the worst moments in their entire career, and how they got through it.

How to stay motivated and never give up: Each chapter is filled with honesty, humor, and heartfelt encouragement to help you stay motivated, keep marching, and never give up―even when things feel incredibly tough. No matter what’s going on in your career right now, this isn’t the end of your story. You’re going to survive.

My Take on the Book
This is a great read for anyone that is working through life and trying to better understand the what they can do to move up and also deal with rejection and more. The author does a great job at sharing content that everyone can relate to as well as a book that you will want to take notes on as you read page by page. One of the great things a bout the book is that the author validates the fears and self-talk that we all feel at least at one point in our lives (if not more). The book is one that pulls you in further into the book with every page that you read and I found that the tips that are offered in the book are tremendous and ones that you can put into action right away.
