Life Promises for Success ~ Book Review

Life Promises for Success
by Jim Tressel

Honestly, when I first requested this book I was a little skeptical about it. Was it going to just be about all the big things in life we can do to get success? Was it truly going to be from a point of view from a man who wants to glorify God and give Him the glory in his success?

After reading just a few of the beginning chapters I knew this book was different. It wasn't just about doing things and feeling success in ourselves. God is the one who will lift us up and He deserves all the glory. The author. Jim Tressel is a football coach and knows much about success from both the public side and the personal side.

Mr. Tressel really writes about success as not some public glory thing. Success is knowing your somebody and not setting expectations so high you will never feel like you've succeeded. Bible verses are quoted on every page, ones that are applicable to the subject covered on the particular section. I really appreciated this as there is no better encouragement then the scriptures.

The book is hard bound and very strong. I liked that the front cover was padded, just a little thing, but it does add to the book.

"Everyone wants to succeed—at work, at home, in relationships, and in life. But sometimes the road to success can be difficult, and even the most seasoned leaders can find themselves in need of some motivation.
In Life Promises for Success, NYT bestselling author and Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel shares a collection of inspiring readings and Bible promises designed to encourage those seeking to succeed in every area of life.
Filled with easily applicable Bible verses, motivational quotes, and engaging and inspiring readings, Life Promises for Success is the perfect daily reader for anyone looking to reach their highest goals, achieve greatness, and inspire others to do the same."
