A while back, I was contacted by Jolene Stockman and asked to read and review Total Blueprint for World Domination. I was hesitant. This isn’t normally my thing, and I immediately turn down none fiction stuff, but the author was so sweet. I figured I would give it a try.

I actually enjoyed it! Not to sound like a jerk by saying it that way, but I didn’t think I would. It’s a fast read, and it’s pretty inspirational. Honestly, it’s not my groove. I don’t think I would dig reading this kind of motivational book on a regular basis, but I could see this really working out well for teachers. You know those speakers you would sit through back in school. You were just happy to get out of class, but it bored you to tears. This wasn’t boring. I think a high school class would benefit by following along with it. It’s interactive and personal.
A dream is a dream, but when you write it all out on paper, it makes it more real. I never had big dreams growing up. My goals pretty much consisted of getting married and having a family. It didn’t matter what I did for a living, as long as I didn’t hate it. I didn’t need a blue print to get where I’m at, I’m pretty sure it was all luck anyway.
There are a ton of awesome quotes I’ll be sharing with you. One thing I adore about this, was the personal stories Jolene shares about her school and career choices. I don’t know the Author other than the few emails shared between us, but re-reading these quotes I highlighted, I can tell we share a lot of the same views on things.
“If you don’t love your life? Change it. Don’t accept anything that doesn’t make you glow with pride that it’s yours.”
Yes yes yes!!! In fact, I may post this on my facebook page later for all the whiners.
“You can see the crap in life, or you can see the cool. Happiness is a choice in every moment and you are in charge of that choice”
Do you see why I love this! So very true
“World domination means conquering the space around you, finding happiness in your everyday.”
“Oh, and sucky people? Lots of people straight out suck. You’ve probably met lots of them already, and you might even meet a whole lot more. Only one thing makes this okay. Sucky people can bring you closer to the world you want, by showing you the one you don’t want.”
Yeah, so suck on that negative nelly's!
I think if you are a teacher with a class of teens, or anyone who has goals in life but you don’t know where to start in reaching them. This might be the book for you. I personally enjoyed it and I’m neither.
