The book for review is “ The I Factor”:How Building a Great Relationship with Yourself Is the Key to a Happy, Successful Life” by Van Moody who is the author of “The People Factor. This book falls in the genre or religion, Christian life and personal growth.
How do you deal with yourself and what goes on around you? Between all our problems, our downfalls, our failures and how we deal with it is what Mr. Moody calls the I-factor. It’s not about placing us up high in how we see ourselves overall but about how you manage your life and the things that surround you. This book shows you how to do so.
But how do you get started to do so in finding your I-Factor? In this book Mr. Moody identifies three ways to find it inside of you. Those factors are identity, significance and perspective. Once you have figured this out you know who you are and what your identity is. From there you are setting the tone for your life.
Every so often you will see a gray box that has a condensed version of what you are reading. This one sums up the book for me. “You figured out who you really are… Often, before you can get down to the core of who you really are, you first have to strip away what you are not.”
What did I think about this book? I do see the value in some self-help books. Is this for everyone? This is probably not true. But if you are wanting to grow from the inside out and to the environment around you this is a good pick up. The questions at the end of the chapters and thoughts are a nice added touch.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
