Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.
When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review by Midwest Book Review:
Mastering Your Destiny:
Knowing What You Know to Become the Best You Can Be
Publisher: Outskirts Press
Reviewer: Paige Lovitt
In “Mastering Your Destiny: Knowing What You Must Know to Become the Best You Can Be” by Chuks Maduadi, the author teaches you how to overcome your limitations so that you can achieve your true full potential. Limitations can be a result of our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. The author states, “To master your destiny is to fully understand the principles of living and apply the same to the accomplishment of your mission and fulfillment of your God-ordained purpose.”
Composed of twelve chapters, the book is divided into three core sections that focus on showing you how to do this. Interspersed between the author’s writing are insightful quotes that I found really helpful in contributing to the lesson at hand.
In the first section, “Mastering Your Path of Destiny,” readers will gain an understanding of the concept of “destiny,” and where they fit in to it. The second section covers, “Mastering the Principles of Destiny.” In this part, you learn how to master your identity, the power of your mind, your beliefs, and the laws of life. The third part involves, “Conquering the Enemies of Destiny.” In this part we gain an understanding of how mastering the self, the challenges of life and your fears will help us master success.
Written in a concise, easy-to-understand format, I feel that “Mastering Your Destiny” is a very useful tool to help wake us up so that we can overcome any obstacle that keeps us from achieving our full potential. By identifying what those obstacles are we can learn how to move forward with this goal. Rather than place the blame for our lack of progress on others, the author proactively shows us how to take responsibility for our own limitations. I think that it is important to note that this is not a book based upon a religion but is based upon a strong belief in God.
I recommend this book to individuals who are seeking tools to help them achieve their full destiny. I also think that it would be an excellent resource for a faith-based group, such as in a church, that has individuals working together to fulfill their destiny. Beautifully written, I also believe that “Mastering Your Destiny: Knowing What You Must Know to Become the Best You Can Be” by Chuks Maduadi would make a wonderful gift.
