Are you stuck in a rut both mentally and in terms of personal achievements? Do you find it difficult to let go of negative thoughts and negative people? If so, then Mark L. Wdowiak's book If Life Stinks Get Your Head Outta Your Butts is worth exploring. Wdowiak begins with a concise retelling of his own journey to greater success. We learn that he himself struggled with attaining the goals he set and that a trusted friend began his positively reframed path.
Wdowiak stresses throughout the book that only the reader can determine what success means. There is no promise of earning $1 million in 30 days or being lusted after by potential romantic partners. Instead, Wdowiak focuses on overall self-improvement and satisfaction with life. Wdowiak breaks down his basic principles carefully throughout the book and uses both subtle and obvious repetition to help drive key points home.
He organizes the book into cleverly labeled sections that are designed to help the reader take each step in time instead of rushing ahead. Reflection, personal responsibility, and conquering fear are key components in each section. Wdowiak also includes a space for the reader to formalize commitment at the end of each chapter to increase accountability.
Wdowiak uses easy to understand, intelligent language that lends confidence to his message. He also speaks as if the reader is his friend or mentor and he truly cares that you begin on the right path. Humor is found throughout as a way to engage and relax the reader as well as aiding in retention of the steps.
I give this book 4 out of 4 stars for straightforward, yet compassionate writing, exceptional organization and editing, and a clear message that can be applied to anyone's life. While I believe that Wdowiak's message is easy to absorb, I would most strongly recommend his book to people who do not like traditional self-help books. People in that category can be harder to reach, especially with so many choices on
