Today I want to write a book review about a wonderful books that I am half way through and it is making a tremendous impact on my life. The book is titled, What’s Really Holding You Back? and it is written by Valorie Burton, highly sought after Christian Life Coach and author of several other popular titles.
I purchased this book at an estate sale about 6 months ago from a woman who I found out had died of cancer. You could tell that this woman was a Christian from her extensive book library and I walked away with a box of books for about ten dollars. I mean these were the kinds of books that every Christian would dream for.
Well, within the pack was What’s Really Holding You Back? The book is broken down into 35 coaching sessions that help you to identify where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. Valerie helps you to pinpoint those many areas in our lives that obstruct our success in life like Are You Waiting for the Perfect Circumstances?, Are You Speaking Death Into Your Life, Have you Given Away Your Power, and Are You Treating the Symptom or the Problem?
Although Valerie appears to be a young woman, she is wise beyond her years, but not with her own wisdom, God’s wisdom, because the books laced with powerful and relevant scripture throughout.
At the end of each coaching topic, the author gives a mini assignment that instructs readers how to focus their thoughts, use their words wisely, target your actions, and a prayer to energize your spirit.
I highly recommend this book if you feel stuck in a rut, you know you are living less than your potential, or you just need some clear direction.
I am hoping to get training as a Christian Life Coach in the future and Valerie Burton is clearly an inspiration to me and I know she would be to you as well.
Below are some more details about her book.
