4 out of 4 starsReview by seun doris
From Drift To Shift: How change can bring true meaning and happiness to your work and life by Jody B. Miller is a non-fiction Book which is very inspiring, self realizing and an eye -opener book for all to read.
This book has four chapters which systematically explain the processes involved in shifting. The first chapter starts with the reason behind making a shift in life, the second chapter talks about when exactly to make that shift,the third chapter tells us how to make the shift while the last chapters ends with what happened after the shift. Each of these chapters were based on inspirational real life stories of different people who experienced drift in their lives unexpectedly but were able to overcome all the obstacles and find meaning and happiness afterwards.
For the fact that this book is a non-fiction book, i found it very interesting to read as it relates with different lives experiences with different challenges which one can identify with in some way. You don’t get to come -by this type of non-fiction book as always.
The book focuses on self motivation, determination even in the face of seemingly impossible situations where one knows that a decision or choice made at that point of ones life has a long way in making or marring that life. I discovered that the different people’s life stories were based on not giving up on oneselve or allowing the world around to dictate to them but they made a life out of no life.
Also, this book exposes one to finding happiness in everyday and all ramifications of life. It involves finding meaning to that situation you might find yourself and take the opportunity in it for us to grow, happy and still be fulfilled at the end of the day.
The author really did a good job in structuring every contents in the book, every individual life stories were properly structured in a very clear way without leaving the reader confused. The author was also able to share her own advise and takeaways at the end of each chapters which serve as a pinpoint even for a non-book lovers to want to read the whole chapter.
Every part of this book is very informative , inspiring and motivating even to the appendix part, i will personally want to recommend this book to everyone who might be going through some difficult times to let them know that it isn’t over until it is over and they can be happy without anybody’s permission.
I rate this book 4 out of 4, for me no error in the editing or the formats, everything about book this is just good!
