There comes a time in every person's life that we take a good look in the mirror. This image may reflect accomplishments and the joys that that life had brought us or it might just expose regrets and dreams that fell by the wayside. I believe that it is what we do with that moment that really counts. Do we give up on life and let our light fade away forever or do we decide to make some changes in our life?

Find Your Courage encourages the reader to look at their life and make a change for the be

This books appears to be a waste of time. Funny how the author tells us not to accept the 'truths' we learned growing up, but then fills her book with her opinions and accounts from others who believed and accepted the truths. Writing is cliched and boring....I'm reading it at work or I'd toss it!
Does it have any merit? Yes, first it were 33% shorter, but she is too obsessed with telling tiny little tales with irrelevant material and then will tell you the relevant part so to much extraneous mat

The author comes across as a caring person, with lots of words of wisdom, someone I wouldn't mind knowing or counseling with. I just wish what she wrote resonated just a little bit more with me than it did. Not that none of it could be applied to my circumstances [in 2009], but it didn't hit me that hard.

I volunteered to lead the book club for a women's group I'm in at work. This is the book. It's pretty intense! But I think it will definitely spark a lot of discussion.

ETA: I gave up on this book. It depressed me.

The author points out that the greatest courage is the courage to be ourselves. The second is dealing with those who don't want us to be. Good reading.

I gave up about 1/3 of the way through. It was good material but I felt like I've read this book before a few too many times.

Quite a few good thoughts in this book. Towards the end, it gets a bit repetitive.

“Just remember: other people’s opinions are simply that—other people’s opinions. They are not fact, and they are certainly not “the truth.” It is your responsibility to question the authority you give others, to question opinions they want you to adopt as your own, and to question how it is they are observing the world themselves that has them seeing things as they do. Sometimes you need to take back the authority you are giving to the opinions of others and place a bit more trust in yourself.” 10 likes
“Earlier in this book I noted that one of my favorite sayings is “You get what you tolerate.” This applies in spades to your relationships. Failing to speak up about something carries the implication that you are OK with it—that you are prepared to continue tolerating it. As a companion saying goes, “Silence means consent.” If you tolerate snide or offensive remarks from your boss or colleague, the remarks will continue. If you tolerate your spouse’s lack of consideration for your feelings, it will continue. If you tolerate the disregard of people who regularly turn up late for meetings or social engagements, they will continue to keep you cooling your heels. If you tolerate your child’s lack of respect, you will continue to get no respect. Each time you tolerate a behavior, you are subtly teaching that person that it is OK to treat you that way.” 10 likes
