Rise Above The Rat Race: A Review

June 8th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

You are lucky to be reading this page today. Because you get a sneak peek into a book that is about to be released by Sue Debrule… a book that can give you the fillip you need to really rise above the rat race – with directions and case studies!

I got an advance copy because she was kind enough to feature me as a case study. But that will not bias my review. What might bias it is the fact that there is nothing in the book one can look upon negatively. That is just how Sue is built. Extremely positive. So much so, she has used her positive mental energy to cure herself of cancer. And she has distinguished herself as an internet marketer of excellent standing despite her age (her daughters are in their thirties), qualification (kindergarten teacher), health and adverse financial conditions.

rise above the rat raceBack to the book, Sue Debrule starts out with an enticing title… who doesn’t want to ‘rise above the rat race’ after all? And unlike you’d expect, she deals with the subject from the inside out. Consequently there is no preachiness. Instead the book has you introspect and answer to yourself honestly, questions like “What are your personal values”, “Why should you identify your values” and “How do you identify your values?”

I really love the way everything in the book follows a “Why” and a “How” pattern. Makes it really stick. Moving further the book talks about purpose and attitude so that one can put oneself right there in the driver’s seat while on this journey to ‘rise’. And having aligned your feelings with your future, the book starts tackling beliefs.

From there on, it moves into the realm of abundance, touching upon key aspects of luck, money (or the lack of it) and work. Joining the dots, it naturally connects the reader with the world of business and ‘home business’ of which Sue is the ‘Guru’. The book spends good ink on how to evaluate opportunities and get trained. Very clean and impartial. It also furnishes examples of budgeting, debt recovery and credit repair, making the ‘rise’ easy for anyone in any current condition.

As a topping on a delicious pie, Sue’s book presents the 7 Universal Laws of Success that anyone wanting more out of life must align with. Added to it are a couple of chapters on speed and balance. I consider these very thoughtful additions that ensure completeness.

Having read a plethora of self-help books, I can see how ‘Rise Above The Rat Race’ will save the reader a huge lot of time. How? It is the nectar of the humongous thinking of Napoleon Hill and Tony Robbins extracted and poured into practical, applicable diktats of Bob Proctor and Joe Vitale. That is peppered with personal experiences of live ordinary unknown mortals (like Sue and myself among others)… and this lends credibility and belief. Each reference can be contacted directly as Sue has been generous with websites and numbers. And the writing style is so smooth, you’d breeze through its 156-pages unstoppably! Rise above the rat race!
