I don’t read a lot of self help books, fair or not, to me once all the fluff is blown away, they are pretty much the same. But, this little book peaked my interest…and boy am I glad! Thuy and Milo Sindell have introduced a new concept in self improvement, The Hidden Strengths Methodology.

Hidden Strengths challenges you to think differently, most self improvement programs focus on your weaknesses, Sindell says this is where we err. According to this plan, 10% is weakness, 20% is strength, with 70% hidden in the middle. This is where your untapped potential lies. So, instead of focusing on the weaknesses, which is frustrating and has slim chance of bringing any real changes, we should be concentrating on that center 70%, these skills are closer to being strengths already. Wow, what a concept!

Sindell explains quickly, concisely, and in easy to read language what you need to do. Hidden Strengths is an investment in your future and at under 100 pages it doesn’t require you to invest a lot of time. In addition you also have access to the online assessment which gives you a list of hidden strengths you already have in your arsenal. Then you narrow the list down to the skills that are vital to your professional goals at this time…and presto! You are on your way to uncovering and honing your Hidden Strengths.

In a nut shell – If you buy only one self improvement book this summer, let it be this one. You will not disappointed!

Happy Reading,

Re: Don’t Just Sit There by LA Wilson

Don’t Just Sit There:
  A true account of a frightening experience and a self-help book for women

$15.95 U.S./$25.95 CANADA
Writers Club Press an imprint of, Inc
Fans of suspense thrillers and true crime, all women everywhere, from 8 to 80 will find the hair on the back of their necks standing on end reading “Don’t Just Sit There.” Men who read this book are given a tiny glimpse into the atrocities perpetrated against women. Not only is this an intense, page turning read, the message can not be overemphasized. Easily something within the pages of this book could literally save your life, or that of someone you love. What more motivation could you need to read it?L.A. Wilson has given the reader a front row seat into the ordeal that changed her life. Based on factual events, the book relates the horrific kidnapping, sexual assault and her six month journey through the system. From that awful night she was abducted at knife point til the jury foreman read the verdict, she shares it all. An engrossing and unflinching story that took me on a roller coater ride of emotions. Fear, anger, determination, combined with healing, finding new love, a little humor amid the horror, and finally stepping into the dawn of a new day as a new woman…..Wilson refused to be victimized in silence and with this powerful book, she compels others, to fight for the justice they deserve. “Don’t Just Sit There” has opened my eyes and touched my soul in profound ways. I commend Ms. Wilson for her courage. The same strength and grace that sustained her through this ordeal is conveyed to the reader in her words. This is one of those very rare books that stays in your mind long after it has been returned to the shelf. Which is a testament to the power of the story, as well as, the expert way it was crafted and delivered.

Happy Reading!

*Personal Note:
Many victims of violent crime feel they have no where to turn and no one understands. If you are one of the 1000’s of women whose lives have been forever altered by such senseless acts of violence please read Don’t Just Sit There. It could very well be the first steps on the road to healing and regaining control of your life.*submitted & acknowledged documentation available.
