 If your life is going nowhere and everyone else seems to be in the “fast lane,” this is the motivational and inspirational book for you!  Jolt! Get the Jump on a World That’s Constantly Changing,” published in 2011, is full of ideas to help you change with the changing times.

There are twenty-five “jolts” in five different categories to aid in the journey.  Suggestions are matter-of-fact.  There are thought-provoking quotes in each chapter and personal anecdotes from the author on the ways he has “jolted” himself in life.

Ideas include:  Jolt Your Direction.  The idea here is to change now, let go of the past.  You can’t change that anyway.  Pursue your dreams and goals.  Jolt What Matters.  Establish and know your priorities.  Determine how to make the best decisions for your life.  Create boundaries, narrow your focus and examine your habits.  Jolt Your Potential.  Keep learning and growing.  Be creative.  It’s ok not to know all the answers.  There will always be questions.  Be confident and be generous. Jolt Your Heart.  Find and surround yourself with support personnel.  Be accountable for what you do.  Examine your perception of things and change your thinking if you have to.  Have faith. Jolt Your Future.  Eliminate negative distractions.  Accept that you will make mistakes and that it’s ok.  Life is not about you.  How do you want to be remembered?  How does what you do or don’t do influence others?

This book is well-organized and the author encourages the reader to highlight relevant passages and write in the margins.  I like that.  It is quite interesting and enlightening.  I found myself examining my own life and how I could change to make my own life better.  If you are dissatisfied with your existence in any way, I recommend reading this book.  It will “jolt” your life!

I received this book free from the publisher through the ( book review bloggers program.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.
