APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
There’s where you are and where you want to be—and motivational speaker Trent Shelton knows how hard it is to get from point A to point B. After failing out of the NFL, Shelton decided to address his dark personal issues using the hashtag #RehabTime. The phrase caught on, turning Shelton into a self-help superstar. In The Greatest You, he maps out the roadblocks that can keep you from personal happiness: addiction (anything from alcohol to social media), dwelling on past failures, and accepting others’ opinions of you as fact. Shelton acknowledges that true personal growth almost always stirs up feelings you’d rather not face and often involves ending your toxic relationships. But he also insists that even the tiniest steps add up in your journey to self-improvement. We like how the chapters end with hard-hitting questions like “What fears are you hanging on to?” that encourage reflection. As Shelton reminds us, you don’t have to be perfect—you just have to be real.
The Greatest You
When I first started reading this book, I was struggling to keep moving forward. I have been in a rough patch for a long time and didn’t know where to turn or what to do. I first heard about the book from the videos Trent has been posting on Facebook. After reading just three chapters I found myself reading it day and night. I finished it and started to read it again. This book has changed the way I see life and the people around me. It made me find myself snd a better place of peace in my life. I’m still battling but this time, with a better outlook. This is a must read for everyone, struggling or not.
Love this book it helps you think and turn around things to better yourself. Encouraged to be the greatest me for sure. Thank you so very much
