With no college degree and limited job prospects, Bowers worked odd jobs and earned minimum wages. He lived from paycheck to paycheck and had no plan for his future. The trajectory of his life took a different turn when his then-girlfriend fell pregnant. The thought of providing for somebody else other than himself pushed him to make life-changing decisions. He adopted new habits that saw him turn his life around and become a millionaire within five years.

In The Mindset, Ace Bowers narrates his journey from childhood through to his adulthood. Growing up in a household where there was barely enough money, Bowers had to be self-sufficient and independent from an early age. Along the way, he made reckless financial decisions and accrued debt. His debts negatively affected his credit record and prevented him from securing well-paying jobs.

In one chapter titled Millionaire Moves, the author shares the steps he took to get out of debt and thrive financially. This chapter teaches the reader the importance of making gradual changes and consistency. Bowers did not embark on a massive overhaul of his habits instantly. Instead, he ditched the habits that held him back, gradually.

One of my favorite chapters in the book is titled My Rock. The author dedicated this chapter to his wife. In the chapter, he explained how he met his wife and the role that she played and continues to play in his life. From this chapter, we learn the importance of having support systems.

The structure and layout of the book are simple and enhanced my reading experience. The story followed a coherent sequence and enabled me to follow the events as they unfolded. There was nothing I disliked about the book. It was exceptionally edited, and I did not come across a single grammar or typographical error. The book contains elements of violence, but the details surrounding it are not explicit or graphic. The book is suitable for readers of all ages, and I recommend it to readers who enjoy motivational books.

The book was an inspiring read. Bowers did not shy away from hard work, and his work ethic rewarded him greatly in life. His resilience and determination to succeed against all odds shined through the pages.

The book was written in an understandable and relatable manner. It is also educational and inspirational. For these reasons, I am awarding it a glowing rating of 4 out of 4 stars.

The responsibility of catering for his child made him change his mindset which got him to be a millionaire. Ace Bowers took charge of gigs condition and made the best out of it

I guess this is the perfect example of grass to grace. I think Bowers was frustrated when he found out about his then girlfriend's pregnancy. They say that all things work together for good. Maybe that was the little push he needed to be who he is today. I've always enjoyed reading your reviews. Thanks for the recommendation.
