At this point in my life I decided I needed some tough love, I needed a swift kick up the bazooka.
So I bought "How to Get a grip" by Mr Matthew Kimberley and, well, he tells it like it is, basically: Get over yourself, suck it up, stop whinging and get your ass moving forward.
Matthew tells us all to focus on the big picture things: health, family and relationships.
He warns that all too often we get buried in the details, then wake up and go `what the frack happened to my life?'
Matthew sates you are the cause of most of your problems, which means that you are also the solution, so stop getting in your own way! Dag nab it! (Ok, he doesn't say Dag Nab it but he should, it's funny)
What's great is that most of Matthew's advice is common sense, we just need to be reminded every now and then, he's really funny and there's no soft, gooey cotton candy or fluff here. Just simple, straightforward honesty.
If you respond to tough talk, then this is for you. If you need a reminder of the grit and crust of what really matters in life, then this is for you.
I'm not giving it 5 stars because as it turns out I didn't really respond to tough love, I need gentle encouragement, sweet talk and goo - but that's just me.
