I cannot have received this book in the most opportune time when I got this in time for my birthday. I needed the inspiration and the encouragement to get up and get things done as I was having a series of early {?} mid-life crisis episodes. This book sure gave me a whole new perspective on things and life in general and it encouraged me to get up from the rut and get things done as I am someone created with the faculties and abilities to get anything I put my heart and mind into, done!

Start Something in a nutshell

The book byline says: Jumpstart the work you’ve been dreaming of

While this is what the back of the book says:

You want this new start. 

But somehow, something is stopping you. You can’t put a finger on it. 

Fear. Worry. Uncertainty. The what ifs.

You don’t have to waste your time sitting and waiting. Stop flying under the radar. Know that you have what it takes to make things happen. 

START SOMETHING is a book that will get you unstuck. It will change your mind and compel you to start that one thing you have been putting off.

Mum’s two cents

inspirational books, Filipino authors, books, reviews, book review

It sure sounds rather inspiring and promises too much of a good thing, but it was easy to surmise that Start Something did accomplish what it set out to achieve in the first place. It serves as an eye-opener and a treasure trove of inspiration for everyone who wants to get something done and who needed the extra push or pep talk. 

I particularly like the fact that this book which originally aims to motivate would-be entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses is very much applicable to a student who need the positive words to aim to excel in his class, or a mum who needed the good words to be productive in her day-to-day lives, as well as blogger who requires the extra dose of inspiration to finish a pending article or any other unfinished works. This book sure is a must-read for everyone, different folks from all walks of life.

It is also rather inspiring to know that this “business book” is void of all the business jargon that used to bore me while reading those Economics book in College. It was written in a very interesting way, you will hardly remember you are reading a business book. The anecdotes are very easy to read. It was also unputdownable that I actually finished reading it in one sitting! :)

This book roused me from the boredom of everyday life’s mundanity into seeing what ‘s interesting and inspiring out of the ordinary. I give this book :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: We should have more Filipino self-help books like this! :)
