Book Review:

What I found interesting as I dived into It's Never Game Over by Christina G is that this book started out as a book for writers. According to Cristina, it had started out being a short book that she was going to give out for free, but as she started writing, she discovered she couldn't get everything that needed to be said and thus, It's Never Game Over was born as a self-help book for not only writers but everyone!

The author believes that everything we do or not do is a decision and we must zone in on those time wasters so that we can get done what we need to do. Every time you complain about something, you're not taking responsibility for your life. I'm waving my hand to this one because I am terrible at this. I'd rather take it and sweep it under the rug than take responsibility and take care of whatever it is that needs my attention.  The author gives this example: "The writer who sold 800,000 copies of his books didn’t procrastinate, didn’t watch the ceiling for years complaining that it’s difficult to find someone to believe in them (I’m guilty), publish and get noticed. The success doesn’t come overnight." Whoa. 

And this struck home for me: "If you didn’t like it when your parents complained without doing anything to change their situation, why do you act exactly the same?"

Think about that for a minute.

It's Never Game Over is the best pick me up for anyone who feels like they just accept what life has in store for them instead of making that change. Cristina writes from the heart and finds the knowledge to explain to us that while we are human, there are ways out of every situation that is common sense but we have to be smart about it. Just don't give up. I highly recommend it and give it five book trees!
