Normally I would have been finished with this Chicken Soup edition quite some time ago. I try to read at least one of the inspirational stories in the series each day. In 2019 I got out of the habit so this one took longer than it should, not because it wasn't good, just because I got out of this routine.

Rating it to others that I've read in the series, I'd give it a 4, not my all-time favorite, but very good.

Do you have dreams or aspirations? Do you believe dreams can come true? Do you know wh

I have been a big fan of the Chicken soup series ever since I could read words that hard. [I'm kidding:] The stories in this book are written and edited beautifully, giving people a feeling of being with the person who wrote their stories to us.
In this series particularly, I really liked this story about Le Van Vu and his wife and how they were willing to 'pay the price' and now they have becom

I loved the fact that the first 50 or so pages were dedicated to establishing practical guidelines for the reader to follow in order to advance on the path to achieving their dreams. My 10 favourite and most inspiring stories were: "Follow Your Dream" (I cried- dreaming is not futile), "New Directions" (a tale of an empowered women), "Finding My Wings" (made me realise the importance of adding a note of tangibility to your dreams), "Glenna's Goal Book" (By far the most memorable- I immediately s ...more

This is my least favorite book from Chicken Soup for The Soul series. Many of the stories come from different CSTSs; it's a compilation from previous series. Besides, each story is predictable; featuring a character turning from zero to hero in different ways. I don't really feel motivated after reading. ...more

This has been my train commute read for the last 3 weeks. The first section is dedicated to taking steps toward making your dreams a reality. I always enjoy a step-by-step process and this one was laid out very systematically (love it). The next two sections share lots of inspirational stories. Most were great ... a few actually felt like a swift kick in the pants to me (awesome). Those made me realize that I make a lot of excuses for why I'm NOT doing something. It helped me remember that if th ...more

This book was not at all what I expected, but I found myself taking notes and jotting down quotes left and right, and not just because I was preparing to write this review!

A brilliant book which urges us to aspire for dreams we had no clue lingered in our minds. With the motivational stories and renditions, it tells us there's no way anything is impossible if we put our minds to it. A must read! It made for a wonderful read. ...more

This book is full of wonderful & inspirational stories, but I found myself in no hurry to finish it. In other words, it was easy to put down. Still, it's a good book for the coffee table and great to pull out on those days when you need an extra inspirational lift. I would recommend it, just don't pay full price (there are a lot of used copies out there in very good condition) ...more
