I enthusiastically rate this book 4 out of 4 stars as it was well edited with no noticeable typos. Though nothing in the book is a unique or novel concept, I really enjoyed the writing style of the authors and the overall delivery of the content. Since this book is somewhat a memoir and practical guide and the authors are coaches, they do mention their faith and advertise their business but not in an obnoxious way.
Living adventurously in any area of life begins with an adventurous mindset.
Adventure could mean trying something new, like getting involved in your local community theater or trying paddle boarding. It could mean interacting with people you haven’t before by volunteering at a non-profit nearby or finding a way to assist those in need in your community. It may mean having mini-adventures in your hometown and taking time to explore places that you’ve never been to before. It might be working to grow relationships by taking your family on a cross-country road trip, going a day without any electronics,
What your adventures look like is not as important as the fact that you are taking on adventurous challenges where growth takes place.
Dead-End Thinking is any thought that hinders forward progress. It is often a belief about oneself that uses words or phrases like can’t, could never, impossible, or too hard. Dead-end thinking can cause you to fixate on one option and not consider alternate routes. This thinking is like a person who has turned down a dead-end street and feels stuck because their path ahead is blocked. They may believe there is no possible way to reach their destination.
Your Zone of Challenge is right outside your Zone of Comfort. You know you have stepped into the Zone of Challenge because things seem unfamiliar, just a little bit risky, and you don’t feel as confident here.
Rerouted Thinking is changing one’s perspective about a situation. Using words like might, consider, could, or hope demonstrates a belief that there is a possibility.
Knowing your what, your why, having gratitude, and holding on with grit will help you take the next step on your journey, despite the obstacles, failures, and distractions that will come.
