This motivational book has an exercise in ‘what have you learnt’ after each chapter.
Change is painful, but that pain is the fire that ultimately helps us escape our present circumstances, whatever they are, to experience freedom.
What is freedom?
In this book, Vincent Ogutu carefully researched, selected and wrote about the ten common things that hold people back in life.
The chapters are carefully divided to address the above, mostly mental (even sometimes physical) constraints.
In Escape Slavery, the author shares the life of one Frederic Douglass, how he escaped physical slavery and the traits that made him successful in life.
The book’s second chapter is about escaping debt, I think everyone should get this book and read this chapter first, then the others. Debt and money management is the single most enslaving thing in our current world.
There are other chapters such as escaping career stagnation, escaping stress, and escaping stagnation in life.
Face your jailers with knowledge and Experience Freedom. All it takes are Little STEPS big IMPACTS. – Vincent Ogutu, Author and Business Coach.
The overarching message in the above-mentioned four chapters is having the mindset to believe in a better future than present circumstances. The will and action to do different, most often better, is what makes the difference towards freedom.
There are also chapters on escaping toxic relationships, escaping gender stereotypes, escaping poverty, escaping unhealthily competition and escaping politics.
In the last two chapters, titled Opportunities and Escape, the author shares how to spot opportunities and lastly the mental stamina and physical resolve in escaping the past, failure and mediocrity to experience true freedom in one’s life.
It is imperative that in escaping a mediocre and average life, one first knows, acknowledges and rejects their present circumstances, secondly, one has to have a mental picture of their desired destination.
This is a great self-help book that should not be hurriedly read. Get the lessons, write them down, digest them by doing the exercises at the end of each chapter – Ekoroi
Ogutu puts that across very well for the reader.
However, as has been shown in the book, without action, nothing can be achieved.
The nuggets for success that are shared about the examples of people that have worked hard and escaped their previous bad circumstances are enough to motivate one to start now.
