Patrick Snow is a focused guy.He was one of the few young people making goals when he was yet a teenager:He was determined to become a professional football player.When this dream evaporated after a career ending rib injury Patrick changed his path and changed his goals.Patrick became determined to become a professional speaker and a successful self help coach.After graduating the University of Montana he found himself in the Pacific Northwest with the love of his life and a career in corporate sales.But his goal of being a successful speaker wouldn’t wait.
This book grew out of that dream – and a hope to leave a roadmap for the author’s sons to follow in their own careers.
Patrick Snow has written a very believable book.Why?Because you can see from the anecdotes and stories from his own personal experiences that the man has lived what he is talking about.Patrick gives us his methods in a four step break down:
If the book has any drawbacks it is that many of the inspirational quotes that Patrick uses in his book can be found in a plethora of other self-help books.But as I mentioned, I think the strength of Patrick’s program is in the fact that he lays his own path out for the reader to see just how he got where he is.Patrick shows what it took to live the life of his dreams and he shows the reader how this relates to him.I recommend Creating Your Own Destiny to anyone who wants to do just that.
