successful woman book review

It might seem that this book is yet another psychological-coaching book, where you will be told same things over and over again. Yet I believe this one got me thinking, and, to be honest, I even made some notes reading it, which I keep reading all over again from time to time!

I personally am a huge fan of women entrepreneurship, and I like that women feel empowered. I do support admire women that, without having a successful personal life, also manage to have their own successful businesses or lead well-known NGO’s. It’s truly admirable that ONE single woman can sometimes do more than a man. And, even though I must admit that men are more competitive by their nature, I admire women, who are thinking as men, yet manage to put more feelings into what they are doing.

Valorie knows that successful women think differently, make decisions differently, set goals differently and bounce back from failure differently. She is dedicated to help women create a new image for themselves and rediscover  that empower within themselves to succeed in their relationships, finances, work, health, and spiritual life. With new, godly habits, women will discover how to:

-     focus on solutions, not problems

-     choose courage over fear

-     nurture intentional relationships

-     take consistent action in the direction of their dreams

-     build the muscle of self-control

In this powerful and practical guide, where Valorie provides a woman with insight into who she really is and gives her the tools, knowledge, and understanding to succeed.

Quotes from the book: “You can’t make a change until you stop hiding your challenge and begin sharing it.”

“By intentionally noticing you poor choices and decisions, you can see patterns in your behavior that may be sabotaging your success.”

“Stop trying to fix your weaknesses.”

And, apparently, I am not the only one who totally fell in love with the book. I have stumbled upon positive comments about the book, such as this one: “OMG I just finished reading the 1st 45 pages I am in love with this book I can’t believe how much i can relate to some of the stories in this book. I’m learning so much about myself I rate this book a A++ and I haven’t even finished it yet :)”

I am a current student, enrolled in the BA Marketing and Management Communication program at Aarhus University. Likewise I am a lover of the finer things in life and would describe myself enthusiastic art critique/ amateur. In addition to this, I like to observe the things around me: people, surroundings, places, services and goods. And I am happy to share my experiences with others in order to increase awareness, and to provide a truthful opinion without any lies. P.s. I love chocolate. And heels.
