Being Transparent with Nancy D. Solomon
The Book Review
I often read personal development books with the hope of getting a revelation that will change my mindset, my way of being for the better. I guess that is the least I hoped for when I purchased Impact! What Every Woman Needs to Know to Go From Invisible to Invincible. Well, let me just say that I was not prepared for what actually happened to me, page after page, after page, after page.
When something is transparent, it is capable of transmitting light so that objects or images can be seen as if there were no intervening material.
Strangely,as I read each word, each phrase that Nancy so directly delivered, my many layers of complexity seemed to peel away until I was forced to see myself without any “intervening material.” I literally became transparent to the one person who really matters–ME.
It was as if she pulled me into some magnetic field right from the start with the “Message from the Author: Just Between You and Me.” Honestly, I think if she had only written this section and called it Impact, I would have been satisfied.
Yes, that’s how good it is. Some kind of way, Nancy touched all of the hurtful, sensitive places and nailed my struggles dead-on. I actually thought we had possibly met somewhere, in a diner, in a forum, at Starbucks perhaps, and had a deep, personal conversation that I had somehow forgotten. How else would she be able to read me so effortlessly?
But, to my delight, that was just the beginning. The fact that the book is divided into five major sections that are then uniquely expressed in small essays is a surprising treat….essays, yes, essays. Nancy spoke to me about specific areas of my life as a woman in delicate yet straightforward essays. What an ingenious idea! As a result, I was able to breeze through book with a little more than 250 pages.
As a woman and brand new entrepreneur, I was so grateful for the unexpected gift I received from Impact. I walked away with an entirely new perspective on who I am and what I am here to do.
I walked away knowing that I am obligated to make an impact in this world and that my business is a vehicle by which to do that. Most importantly, I walked away proud to be me–the only me out of over 7 billion people on the planet.
If you are tired of not really “getting” who you are and what you were called to do; if you are fed up with suppressing your true self; if you are ready to first become visible to yourself and then invincible to the world–Impact is the book for you. It will probably be one of the best books you have ever read in your life!
On Tuesday, January 24th, I had the privilege of interviewing Nancy D. Solomon. It was a wonderful experience. Click play to listen to the interview and possibly see yourself in an entirely different light.Peace and Blessings,
