Are you Living or existing? (Book Review)

Today my good friend Kimanzi Constable’s book is releasing, Are you Living or Exciting? 9 steps to change your life. If you buy a copy between May 1st – May 19th he’s offering over $100 worth of free bonuses, click here to check out the bonuses and see what you need to do after you buy your copy. It would be crazy to not buy a copy (Just saying).

Each of us have personal dreams about the things we want to do and achieve in life. This book will help you turn your dreams into reality by taking you through these 9 steps:

  • “Identifying your dreams.”
  • “Getting fit.”
  • Getting rid of the negative.”
  • “Fixing your money.”
  • “Nail down your plans.”
  • “Making the first moves.”
  • “Tying up loose ends.”
  • “Making radical changes.”
  • “Paying it forward.”

What I really enjoyed about this book is that Kimanzi is living out what he writes about. You won’t find theory or useless advice in this book. It’s full of practical and relevant advice that will help you move you toward your dreams. Below are a few of my favorite quotes from the book:

“The main difference between living and just existing is your attitude towards what you do, which affects how you do it and how you feel about your life.”

“Begin with the end in mind. If you want to lose fifty pounds, go out and buy some new clothes that you’ll be able to wear when you’ve accomplished your goal. Keep those “skinny” clothes in a prominent place and use them as an object of motivation.”

Being physically fit is about a lot more than your weight; it’s having your body in peak condition which gives strength and energy for every other area of your life.”

“Negativity will keep you where you are now or even drag you farther from where you want to be.”

I highly recommend buying the book before May 19th so you can receive all the great bonuses. You can learn more about Kimanzi Constable here.

    Thanks for sharing this. Based on just the title, I feel like I want to get my hands on it and peruse immediately. Living is different from merely existing. I like self-help and inspirational books.

  • DS

    Looks like you have some new quotes. Enjoyed the way you presented the book!

    • Yep:) Glad you enjoyed the book review. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      • DS

        Make sure you’re taking notes on the launch 😉

  • I have plenty of “skinny” clothes in the closet…maybe I need to pull them out as a reminder to get back there! Thanks for the reminder that this is available now – and for the review. Have a great week!

    • Ha, that’s great Tom:) I also need to lose a few pounds so might do the same. Thank you for checking out the review.

  • Dan, thanks for sharing this book, the idea is very inspiring. I know that is always easy to slip into the existing mode but I do believe that God wants us to live rather than just exist!

    • It sure can be easy to slip into exciting mode. God calls each of us to thrive and excel in life! Thank you for reading and sharing.

  • Hi Dan,

    I enjoyed the book review and Kimanzi sounds a like a very inspirational person.

    I liked the idea of beginning with the end in mind. I did this around 5 years back through writing a cheque to my mum for £10 Million. This was to say that one day she’ll be able to cash the cheque. These days, I’m not really as ambitious in terms of money, but doing this with the cheque has helped to keep me on track with my current financial goals.

    Thank you.

    • Hello Hiten,

      He sure is, I highly recommend connecting with him. Great example, thank for sharing about your own life. Glad you took the time to read and share your thoughts. I appreciate it.

  • Tim Bonner

    Great review Dan and it sounds like an interesting read.

    My dreams are all based around my family and we’re working well towards them. Out of debt was the first goal and we succeeded in doing that last year.

    • Thanks Tim. I highly recommend picking up a copy. You have great dreams!!! Basing them around your family is so essential. Thank you for sharing.
