For a very long time, my standard for one of these book has all the time been Christopher Gardner’s “The Pursuit of Happyness.” Although the movie gives you a transient glimpse into this motivational story, it’s his book that basically shows you what Gardner really struggled through to achieve the extent of success he reached.
Gardner’s book will make you laugh, and you may cry too, but he in some way manages to dull the pain and struggle he suffered. You’re a spectator, but you do not feel it the way in which he did.
This book, 180 Degrees, by Robert R., is different. Robert R. drags you to the sting of the cliff and makes you walk with him. You do not just feel like a spectator. As a substitute, you are there, and it’s more ugly than you’ll be able to imagine.
After I was asked to review this book, I used to be a bit hesitant. Does the world really want one other inspirational or autobiographical book? I’ve read so a lot of these through the years while walking my very own path of non-public growth. I’m glad I did though.
Robert R. offers one other essential and profound difference here that makes this book much more edgy and makes you would like to know his story. Not only does he find yourself homeless like Gardner did, but he also struggles through drug addiction and the pain of escaping a life-style that few will ever get out of.
We start originally, at the very least form of: across the time when Robert R. is between six and eight years old. He engages in cutting, a practice that can leave him with scars for the remaining of his life. It doesn’t get any higher either, as, by the point he’s 14 years old, he’s dealing drugs and doing “the hard stuff”: cocaine, acid, etc. The spiral continues as he finally ends up homeless and broken. Eventually he escapes this lifestyle, and over a period of about 10 years, becomes a millionaire at 30 years old.
Although that is an incredibly amazing story, it’s so rather more. Robert R. doesn’t just let you know his story. He tells you the way he escaped and the way you’ll be able to too. You furthermore mght learn all in regards to the resources he used to wash up his life and get sober and whole. Far beyond any faith, philosophy, or recovery program, you discover every part you could know to get well. This book includes an in depth reading list in addition to organizations where you’ll be able to get help not only to your addictions but so that you may move on and construct prosperity and abundance in every area of your life.
I like to recommend this book not only for individuals who are affected by addiction and do not see any way out. I also recommend it to those that love addicts. It is a rare glimpse into the mind of an addict. It’ll leave you stunned, as in the event you had just watched a train wreck, but you will find hope and healing too. Read every word. You will not need to miss any of it.
