Oh my gosh. The book I chose to review was Surviving Your Serengeti by Stefan Swanepoel .
It states on the front cover 7 Skills to Master Business and Life. It talks about the 2 million animals that go a thousand miles across the Serengeti. The journey is full of many dangers for these beautiful animals.
The book explains that there are different animals and each have their strengths and weaknesses but they all bring their own to the table. It asks questions which cause you to think about yourself. "Are you an enduring wildebeast who understands that any goal worth achieving requires pressing on despite the hardships?" "Do you take brave gambles like the risk taking mongoose ?"
There are other magnificant animals on this trek and all are compared to trails that we all have or hope to have. It is a journey of discovery , just as we do everyday. It speaks about troubles and problems we face in all of our lives.
The author Stephan Swanepol made me think about my own struggles and skills. He believes as I do that you cannot sit back and be afraid to take a risk because you might fail . Rely on youself and think about the good and the bad facts to bolster your personal decision. You might fail but you must keep a positive attitude.
We are faced everyday with challenges and problems. I believe that it is not only the outcome of our decision but it is also the journey that gets us there. We must believe as a people that there must be a risk taken to be able to have a successfuk outcome. Just think of all of the discoveries that would have not be made if we were not all different but working together.
I found this book to be full of compassion , friendship and a new sense of what can be accomplished in life. I really loved the way each animal had it's own traits. It is a wonderful book and really made me ask myself questions.
