Book Review: The Dream Giver - Bruce Wilkinson



Are you living your dream or just living life? Do you look forward every morning to getting up and going into your job or are you just doing what you have to do to pay the bills?

This book starts with a parable - the story of Ordinary who is a Nobody living in the land of Familiar. One day, Ordinary decides to walk off his Usual Job, break out of his Comfort Zone, and pursue his Big Dream. He has to battle Bullies and Giants before he can thrive in the Land of Promise.

Beyond the parable, Wilkinson discusses how to identify and embrace your own Big Dream, what you need to do to break through your own Comfort Zone, how to deal with Border Bullies, and what it takes to defeat the Giants in your path.

I found this book very encouraging and motivating. Many of us complain about our jobs and continue to question our career paths, but very few stop to question what we were created for and what dream have we been carrying around for years.

Discontented? Not feeling like you are living up to your potential? Maybe you need to discover what your Big Dream is. I strongly recommend reading this book. It's only 160 pages and an easy read.

Dear Mr. Madding:

There was a time when you could walk of your job in America and live off your talent. Now mediocre decision-makers in Corporate America penalize anyone for individuality, creative thought, or for daring to appear on the radar screen.

We need to have a hunting season for corporate butt sniffers.

Fondest regards,
