When it comes to someone guiding me through life goals, I don't want him to be preachy or dry. I want to feel like I'm sitting down with him, chatting over a cup of coffee.
That's how Adam Davis writes.
Be Awakened acts as a journal so you really feel so positive about life at the end of each daily reflection period. Even just looking back at your first 7 days of entries makes you feel uplifted. There was clearly a lot of time, effort, and research put into this book.
I appreciated the preface that explained how this book would work and I loved that each daily activity only took up 10-15 minutes of my time. The key takeaways at the end were great too.
As a Christian, I was grateful for the spiritual wisdom throughout this book. I think when it comes to completing goals, no matter how big or small, we need God at our side to make them happen.
Wonderful read full of steps to actually help you reach your goals.
—Shayla Eaton, Curiouser Editing (I received an advanced reader copy to write an honest review of this book.)
I recently ordered this book because, I follow the author on FB, and he is very inspiring and motivating. I decided to order his book, not knowing if he was like many other self-published authors with a dream, yet no writing ability to deliver a life-changing message. I must tell you, I am amazed at how well he writes, and most importantly the power of his message. I am not a huge fan of day by day steps to action books. I prefer to sit down and read a book in a couple days, and then move onto the next one. However, as I began to follow the guidelines of reading this book, I realized this is too great not to share. No, not just share with you, but share with my 4 children and husband. We now do each day together as a family. Why is this so great? Well, children are more likely to stay within the realm of which they are raised when they have 5 adults in their life who influence them for success. The lessons in Adam's book are lessons I already try my best to drill into my children, but most of the time I wonder if they are listening. Well, since reading Adam's book together, I now consider Adam to be one of the 5 influencers in my children's lives. They are not only hearing it, but also gratefully applying it. Their confidence, and ability to express themselves has risen due to having Adam's voice in their head. Thank you Adam Davis, for speaking out and touching the lives of those who are most precious to me--Makenzi (13) Preston (9) Tori (7) Easton (5)....and of course my husband (38).
Adam has hit a home run of a motivation book! Be Awakened goes beyond the typical "you can do this" to reach deeper into who you were really created to be. Self reflection and hard questions are peppered with real life stories that make Adam a relatable and thoughtful writer.
I would encourage you to get the paperback version so you can easily answer the daily reflection questions right on the page. I'm looking forward to looking back a year from now to gauge my growth.
When I start a journey, I like to have a map and sense of where I’m going. Maybe that is the Army veteran or police officer in me. Either way Be Awakened delivers a step by step guide to build a personalized map towards change! Adam Davis is a selfless man that has shared his life story with the world as way to help others. His genuine desire to serve is reflected marvelously in his writing style. Are you where you want to be? Be Awakened is the key to get there!
