REVIEW: Never Give UP You're Stronger Than You Think by John Mason

Thank you Revell
for this complimentary copy.
John Mason's latest book showed up in my mailbox in perfect God time. Upon opening it, the title, Never Give Up, You're Stronger Than You Think was especially impactful because I forgot I had requested it. I received this book just days after my cancer diagnosis. Never Give Up holds a meaning for me now that it did not when I first saw the notice about the book back in April.

Thank you God. I choose to never give up.

These are 52 nuggets of wisdom and advice in this book by John Mason. You can read them weekly or daily or one after the other like I did. There's some really good stuff in here. I recommended it to my husband, because it reads like a business book, but there's also a Christian side to it. I found that even though I am not in business, nor do I expect to be, the nuggets nearly all applied directly to this mom who's stayed at home with her children since 1991. Oh my, that was a long ♥ time ♥ ago!

The reading selections are short—just two or three pages each. They're easy to snatch read in your in between moments. That makes this book great to tuck in your bag for moments in the check out line, waiting in the car, or in a waiting room. Yep, been there done that.

This is good old-fashioned advice that would probably been common knowledge for lots of folks a couple of generations ago. It's all delivered in a frank, matter-of-fact way with lots of funny examples and stories tucked in to keep it all interesting.

This one's worth a look my friends.

Everything you want is on the other side of not giving up.

Anything worth doing is going to have some obstacles. Some people look at setbacks as evidence that whatever it is they've been striving for just wasn't meant to be. But according to bestselling author and master motivator John Mason, the moment most people give up is the moment of their greatest opportunity.

In this inspiring book, Mason gives you fifty-two keys to never giving up on your dreams. He shows you how to move forward when you're on the verge of quitting, how to avoid unnecessary trouble, and how to keep your energy level up in the face of setbacks. 

Whatever your dream--whether you're building a portfolio, a family, a business, or relationships--you'll find the strength and motivation to go on, break through, and claim the prize.
