You will crave change and chicken pot pie!
I have been a fan of C.C.'s since the early days of podcasting. Today I am lucky to call him a friend. That said, you are going to love this book.
"Amazing Things Will Happen" will leave you inspired with actionable items to act upon. C.C. Chapman is living proof that if you follow your dreams anything can happen.
Throughout his book, C.C. shares stories from his life and from the people in his life. The examples will leave you inspired to make the necessary changes to improve your life.
Get your Moleskin and a pen, because you are going to need them to make "Amazing Things Will Happen" work for you. C.C. will give you occasional tasks that involve closing the book (or shutting off your eReader), grabbing a cup a coffee (or a chicken pot pie), and doing some deep thinking.
I have no doubt that you will find "Amazing Things Will Happen" to be inspiring and helpful in directing the course of your life.
More than encouragement: C.C. inspires by example.
Any number of books in the Self-Improvement section could be dismissed as overly general, unduly optimistic cliché compilations: this book isn't one of those! There's encouragement, to be sure, but C.C. also injects a healthy dose of realism, courtesy of his own life experiences.
It takes a brave storyteller to share his own journey so openly, and that's why this book is so powerful. When C.C. says you can overcome obstacles, you believe him, because he's done it; and he tells you how.
Inspiration is the magic elixir for success, but there are other ingredients, too. Persistence, determination, humor, and some things that are unique to you. Every person's formula is slightly different, but you need a starting point before you can start improvising. This book is a fantastic place to start!
I challenge you to read this book, then stay put. You won't be able to! "Amazing Things Will Happen" lights a fire in your soul that makes you want to really live. You won't settle for less after reading this.
Less like a book and more like a journey
You know that feeling you get when you've just had an inspiring conversation over coffee or a drink with a good friend in real life? That's this book.
If you're looking for help, guidance, and honest advice on making a personal or professional change, take this journey. Challenge yourself to really look within and confront any fears and excuses holding you back, and to look externally, in ways you may not have thought of, to capitalize on opportunities that can help you to get to where you want to go, while avoiding negativity. Come back to chapters in this book to quickly remind yourself of where you should be directing your focus, and for a friendly nudge if you get stuck. They are set up perfectly for this.
You'll want to grab a notebook before you start, because there will be work along the way, as there should be. Nothing worth having comes easy. But as C.C. says (and knows from personal experience), if you're ready and willing to put in that work, Amazing Things Will Happen.
