Shelves: self-improvement
I would really give this book a 3.5 stars.

A good book overall, but I read so many books about self improvement that the overlap seems to phase me. He says a lot of the same messages.

The first 60 pages are pretty fast, then it slows down. The last 80 pages are more focused on how women can succeed, so I skimmed through those pages.

Its a great book for people that are very religious that don't read too much besides religious books. He uses a lot of scripture to begin talking about everyday life

In this book, T.D. Jakes shares the tools to help you succeed and be prosperous. It reveals truths, practical solutions and insights that enable you to progress to your full potential and to achieve the life you have always dreamed about. Like with any knowledge received, the reader must apply what he or she has learned into their own life. There are things I learned from reading this book, and I would recommend this book to anyone who truly desires and are motivated to live life without limits.

This book came into my life when my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. This was the first time I had ever read a book by this man, and I highly recommend any book that is written by him because he tells it like it is, and he has the ability to make you see life in a brand new way. T.D. Jakes is the real deal.

This book changed my life! It really made me evaluate where I was and where I was going for the rest of my life. Powerful!

You can't go wrong with TD Jakes. He always has a good word to share and no matter where he is coming from, I can always find value in his message and relate it to my life. His "take no prisoners" form of delivery hits me right where I need it most – in the world of practicality. Not only do I look to his daily messages for inspiration, I'm positive that his impact on the world at large connects with our hearts, our minds and our souls in a way that very few can reach in a way that sets us in mo ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone
I thought this book was truly inspiring. Jakes does an execellent job of motivating people to reposition themself and achieve their goals. Although he does use scriptures as the basis for the points made in this book, he illustrates his points through the use of vivid imagery and practical examples without condemnation, being condescending, or coming across as "preachy". I would reccommend this book to anyone who is looking to improve their life. This book is full os so many useful and practical ...more

Excellent book to keep close by as a reminder that if you want different results about yourself, don't do the same old thing in the same old way! Expect change when you yourself institute change, starting with yourself! Thank you, TD Jakes! This book is like a new and improved version of Paul Tillich's The Courage to Be.

This book made me love Bishop Jakes. I read this book at a point of change in my life and it spoke to me. The "characters" that the bishop put in the book made me rethink a lot of what I was doing in my life. This is a must read for those that need to look inside for change.

This book taught me about repositioning myself. I read this book before I started the process of writing my own book. It is a really good read.

The writings of T.D. Jakes truly inspire me! I’ve read a couple of his other books in the past. When someone told me about this one and its title, something sparked in me that gave me an inkling I really needed to read this book. Now that I’ve read it, I am so extremely grateful and blessed having done it! T.D. Jakes has such a wonderful spirit about him! I love how he helps people truly understand the biblical scriptures he quotes by explaining them in nice, simplistic ways. He gives many wonde ...more

This book walked me through an unfamiliar course in my life. I was desperately needing to understand a lot more clearly than I had been exposed, where I was headed and what I needed to do to prepare myself for my arrival. A blessing, came by way of a job opportunity, which I was never trained or groomed to receive. Had it not been for parts of the message in this book, I undoubtedly would have done something (as I've done many times before in the past) to sabotage myself, in effect, losing out o ...more

If you are searching for a life with no limits or boundaries and you seek increase all around you. Then I recommend this book for those who are ready to transisition themselves as a whole. Bishop T.D. Jakes touches on things that we try to avoid when we are seeking change in our lives. He doesn't preach to you, he speaks to you one on one as he shares stories and guides you through stages.

If you are not ready to reposition yourself and receive all things possible after reading this book, then y

This is a shrill wake-up call to take charge of every single moment. Not only does it confront areas where subtle passivity or even poor choices may have stifled the reader's creativity, but it also instructs how to manage change and maximize life now.

Using wisdom collected from his more than thirty years of counseling and working with everyday and high-profile people, Jakes covers financial, relational, and spiritual creativity and shows how adapting to transitional moments in your life is the

Its a decent motivational book. Its more geared for those who are facing tumultuous trouble such as struggling to pay bills or a mid life crisis. It still has good points about making the most out of your life. The book drives on one key point, have faith and a plan then work it. Overall its worth a read. Didn't care for the racial stuff in the book, it could have been left out in my opinion. I also don't care for the term African American, that's like white people saying European American.

Recommended to Alejandro by: Julio Cesar Peredo
A great book for anyone dealing with a rough patch in their life. The author is clear without being simple and motivates without being preachy. We can and must aspire to better ourselves and our relationships.

Although his message, I believe, should have universal appeal, be forewarned that it is through and through, a very Christian book. If this is a deal breaker, you will miss out on a great resource for your life.

He really goes in depth with significant attributes of areas to focus on like branding yourself, embracing change, and growth. All of these areas can cause fear, stress and reluctance to go forward. T.D. Jakes acknowledges these areas and stimulates the reader to move forward in spite of our emotions.

I enjoyed this book. It was on the book shelf as I was approaching another benchmark in my life. Great encouragement was found as was the right answers of questions that had come to mind during my time of repositioning myself. Ladies who are emptynesters, menopausers, go for it. Well worth the read.

An inspirational book for all, especially if you are searching for a way out of "the rut of life." I couldn't help think when listening to this book that is was geared towards my black brothers and sisters, but then I figured that is the author's experience. Regardless, the book is quite uplifting.

Reposition Yourself Reflections is a list of 100 things to reflect on to better place yourself for success. People want to be better, but often forget to set themselves up for what they want. We need to be ready mentally for the challenges and trials of success, and remember that we need to maintain our foundation to continue growing for ourselves and those around us.

I am not really a fan of TD Jakes, I have had issues with his books before. They read more like fiction than nonfiction. I guess there are worse books to read. It was mostly hash--same info redone. :(

Rev. Jakes has a great handle to getting out of your daily rut. A solution to the ordinary life and I love it and recommend it highly. With a forward by Phil McGraw, it made it a "better" reading idea. It's a new form of "how to".

I really liked this book. Won't go into detail about how it came to be in my presence. It was something I definitely needed to read right now and has showed me a few ways to deal with some issues I have been having the past few years.
