I liked 3 things about this book:
1. Chapter 13- You become whatever you think about all day. It asks what kind of self talk are you currently choosing to program your everyday thoughts, actions, and feelings. The most powerful words are the ones you choose to say to yourself.

2. Worry and Fear are Dispensable Parasites on your Brain, Chapter 15. I truly feel you can make yourself miserable.

3. There is no easier pace to start than being a good listener. I need to practice being a relaxed listener

This book is "down home, tell you like it is, get it together sista" type of book!I loved reading this and doing the exercises it included. It helped me get through a difficult time in my life. Instead of accepting depression as my state of mind..he helped me take charge or my own situation.

"you can only be a victim once, then you are a volunteer" it helped me to change change the outcome I was receiving.

"happiness is a choice and you must CHOOSE to be happy"

LOVED it! would recomme

Country singing superstar Judd overcame medical odds by recovering from hepatitis C and wants others to benefit from her health regimen. In this lively and inspirational book, she offers a mix of autobiography, medical advice and just plain homespun talk from one plucky Southerner. Judd is up-front about her mistakes-she got pregnant the first time she had sex and ended up divorced and supporting two children in her 20s. She put herself through college during her 30s, earning a nursing degree, a ...more

One of those books to help you thru tough times w/ an open mind. Teaches you to ask questions with your healthcare professionals & partner w/ them in your healing process--owning up to & taking responsibility for your own health. It also describes how Naomi also incorporated her spiritual health into her physical health, w/o sounding too preachy about it.

I got this book b/c the Centers For Children And Families (local nonprofit org) did a fundraiser dinner & auction in late August 20

Naomi Judd herself signed my copy of her the annual Federally Employed Women's National Training Program in July 2004, where she appeared as the guest speaker. For some strange reason, I found myself saying to her as she was signing my book, "Your children are the jewels in your life," where she suddenly looked up with those wide "deep" eyes, looked straight into mine, and mouthed, "Thank you." We then posed for a quick photo that "almost" captures that moment for me.

This book was excellent - I was really surprised! I bought it in the airport on a whim (needed something to keep me occupied).

She has some great insights & practical application. She also includes spirituality into the equation.

Family/friends nearby are welcome to borrow this book or any that I still have on my shelves/drawers.

I found this book in a thrift store at a price I could not resist. I have long admired Naomi Judd for being both spirited and spiritual. This book is not rocket science, but a surprisingly insightful and amusing self-help guide that points out that we all have the right and power to improve ourselves and our lives.

Not the most inspiring book, but I did feel some genuine affection for Naomi Judd while I was reading it. Her heart's in the right place, the dear thing.
I only read up to page 40. At this point I want to read less self help type books and more positive inspiring books.
