Slap Yourself By Josh Zepess

Slap

This book was in my VIP bag at the Indie Book Fest this year.  Frankly I let it sit for a while.  I gave up the rat race about 3 years ago and started working for me, doing what I love.  What could this book possibly tell me?  Well, a lot and it was a great reinforcement to things I had accomplished to reach my goal.  It’s always nice to know when someone else agrees with you!

This books does not tell you what to do but rather by leading you through questions, enables you to determine your path. I really wish I had it a few years ago when I was trying to set my path without any idea which direction I wanted to go.

SUMMARY

“Most people live above their means and below their potential. It doesn’t have to be that way and it can’t stay that way.”
How would it feel to wake up with purpose, monetize your passions and talents, and become the person worthy of success? Would that be a life worth living?

Some of what you will find inside:

  • Clarity on your true purpose
    Why do you wake up each morning? Is it to fight the good fight or are you excited about fulfilling your purpose and bringing real value to the world? Time to find out what really makes you tick. If you don’t know where you’re going, every road will get you nowhere.

 

  • How to monetize your passions and talents
    They say you can either love what you do or make lots of money. I say they’re full of crap. What if you can do both? Imagine instead of paying ridiculous amounts of money on hobbies, you can get paid to do what you love. There’s money in everything, why not enjoy it?

 

  • Tools to help you on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself
    Building anything requires planning, having the right tools, and taking action. With that, imagine you were trained to use those tools competently and also knew what pitfalls to avoid. Max out your strengths, shore up your weaknesses, build mental toughness, and get ready to work!

 

  • A personal manifesto / An escape plan from the rat race
    How amazing would it be to have a clear and concise guiding document that made it exciting to wake up each day? Something that would keep you on track in life and career so that success was not a hope, but inevitable. You probably had a plan to ensure success on your last vacation, let’s make one for your successful life.

 

  • Leaving a legacy
    Have you ever thought about the mark you will be leaving on your family, community or the world? Will it be something worth remembering, a set of skid marks, or nothing at all? If you have an ounce of love for the future generations, let’s make sure there we leave this world in better shape than we found it.

We are all busy and doing things, but we aren’t sure that what we’re doing will get us where we want to go. It’s that proverbial hamster wheel that I used to live on where I felt tired at the end of the day but didn’t have that sense of accomplishment and could never seem to get paid what I was worth.
Am I telling you that there’s an escape from the rat race? You bet! That was one of the inspirations for this book. Not only can you escape, you have to get out before it’s too late if you want to have the type of life and freedom that we were promised growing up.

This is not the self-help book that will just tell you what to do, rather the book that will ask the questions that will pull from you exactly those right answers you need to hear. It’s the prologue to the rest of your life. From there you get to write the rest of your story.
