Reviewer: Lucille P Robinson
You Can Be Everything God Wants You to Be by Max Lucado is 127 pages of explanation of this topic that makes it clear to any reader how we can reach that level of living.
The first chapter of this book is entitled, 'Find Your Sweet Spot'. Catchy, captivating, and raises the question, 'What is a Sweet Spot?' Max Lucado spends the whole book explaining what our sweet spot is and what to do with it when we find it. In one simple line, this book shows us how to zero in on our strengths (skills), find what our topic is (what we like to work with), discover our optimal conditions (what triggers our motivation), analyze our relationships (how we relate to people), and then once we have gotten all these issues working together as they should we will experience that 'YES' moment and be living in our personal Sweet Spot.
What I like about this book is its shortness: only 127 pages, only 5"x7" is size, nice big text for easy reading. The text is clearly written in a language anyone can understand: no big fancy words that rush your fingers to open a dictionary. I read about 2 short pages and reached for my pad and pen to jot down notes to help me find my own S.T.O.R.Y. I recommend this book to everyone. The message lifts the spirits out of boredom.
