Finding Significance – Why Conform? Be Audacious
Award winning author and Leadership Catalyst, Simon T. Bailey challenges his readers to take seven action steps that will help them “shift into drive” and accelerate them on the road to achieving personal success. These seven practical principles are presented in a format which can be restated to become positive affirmations, action steps, or guidelines for writing a personal mission statement.
Bailey helps the reader see and understand things in a new fresh way enabling them to focus energy more effectively through futuristic thinking. I appreciated his openness and honest self-appraisal in the incidents, examples, and illustrations taken from his own life lessons which re-enforce his unique insights and power principles.
“Shift Your Brilliance” came to my attention at a time when I had reached a plateau, an impasse between being liberated from the limitations of my past and a readiness to make a deeper commitment to step out of my comfort zone. I shifted from average to a more meaningful new significance. Simon Bailey provided the impetus and motivation I needed to take a risk, free myself to live my future now by following my heart to “own the moment.”
Bailey’s writing is innovative with a creative spark that infuses an infectious brilliance in the reader. Highly motivational; a must read for leaders in business, government, education, and in the church community.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
