Respect to the Author But I Didn't Feel The Motivation

Don't Tell Me I Can't Do It!: Living Audaciously in the Here and Now - Dr. Erica Miller

The author is an amazing person, who has gone through horrendous times. She has done very well, following her dream. I loved her story, but that is really all I got out of this was her story. I never felt the connection to me that she was trying to direct me the reader to. There where a lot of words of wisdom to be shared. The stories about her sacrifices and her no matter what philosophies awed me, she is who she wanted to be. She was very goal orientated, tunnel vision. She knew early on what she wanted, and never wavered. She threw everything aside and did it.

What about those of us who aren't driven to be that one thing, the wanderers. I just couldn't put her philosophy to work with my goals. I am not willing to sacrifice time with my family, to me that is the most important thing. I wish she would have talked about balance and bending a little.

It was very inspirational, this woman lived through The Holocaust, she witnessed the ugly side of humanity. She came out fighting, swinging a very big stick. She gave to the world, she helps people live better lives. I would have loved to hear more about her.
