My other half recently received a free e-copy of the self-help book “Blind to Succeed” by Michael Atkins
Here is the book blurb.
If suddenly you were blind, would you be willing to push yourself to your limits in order to gain your sight back? Would you do whatever it takes to restore your vision? Author, Michael Atkins, examines what it takes to achieve personal success from his own life experiences as a writer and entrepreneur.
He takes a writer’s perspective to look at what gives writers and other artists their “winning-edge”, and to explore why some people are more successful in life than others. Michael Atkins has spent years studying successful writers, and in this inspiring book, he shares what he has learned about what it takes to succeed in writing and in life.
What he has found is that sometimes you have to first become blind before you can achieve great success in life.
“Blind to Succeed” will show you how you can change your perspective and conquer your fears in order to unlock your true potential for greatness. You will learn about:
-Beliefs that stop you from succeeding
-What it means to be brave
-How to change your perspective
-How to win your inner game
-Why the little things matter
-Why you need to sell your heart
-How to demystify the impossible
-How to overcome the obstacles to success
-How to battle fear
-The nature of talent
-Why you must learn to love
-Why you should never give up
Whether you are already a writer, an author, an artist, an entrepreneur, or you are aspiring to become one, this inspirational book will show you how you can transform your ideas and dreams into tangible success.
And this is what my other half had to say about Blind to Succeed.
The book was fairly short and the better for it!
Each chapter started with a well chosen quote and built well from it.
It encourages the reader – aimed at aspiring creatives – to commit to their art and recognise that it will be a sometimes difficult but worthwhile journey.
It addresses difficulties likely to be experienced along the way and how the author handled them.
My favourite theme was that it is better to live a creative life than a bland life.
Blind to Succeed is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.70 in Kindle format.
