A Timely Reminder for Me

The success I'm looking for in life doesn't have to do with a career ladder of competitive raises. It's much more important than that. I'm trying to raise saints and struggling to be dedicated in my vocations of wife, mother, and woman.

The success I'm looking for in life doesn't have to do with a career ladder of competitive raises. It's much more important than that. I'm trying to raise saints and struggling to be dedicated in my vocations of wife, mother, and woman.

In The Power of Respect, Deborah Norville didn't tell me anything I haven't already heard or share wisdom I didn't already know. But she reminded me and convinced me to move respect from a theory on the back burner of my priorities to the forefront of my mind...NOW.

Norville writes, not as a preachy poster child who knows it all, but as someone who has struggled through the pains and has found in the mud of the trenches. Her insights are as applicable to me in my role as an employee as they are while I'm juggling the chaos of home and hearth. Whether I'm dealing with strangers, colleagues, or family, The Power of Respect gave me an important prompting and tangible tactics to apply.

Better yet, The Power of Respect motivated me to pay closer attention to the example I set to those closest to me.

Great Concept, Redundant Chapters

The concept of this book is fantastic. If you want to go farther in life, get along with people, harmony in your home, remembering to respect those around you will go along way. Remembering that the woman checking you out at the grocery store is a person just like you, more than likely, with the same problems that you have will go a long way to helping you show respect and making her day, and yours, go a lot smoother. This principle is true in every facet of any relationship you have no matter how small or insignificant or how great and dynamic. This is a concept that has definitely gone by the wayside for many people. In today's society there are only a handful of people that are willing to remember there are others around them that are just as important as they are.

My only complaint about this book is that the author, very eloquently said it all in the first chapter or two. Every other chapter was the same concept presented in a slightly different way, but ultimately saying the same thing. It has taken me almost 9 months to muddle my way through and I actually couldn't bring myself to finish it. I felt like I was literally beating my head against a wall hearing the same thing over and over.

If you have not heard this concept before, you might thoroughly enjoy this book, but for those who practice respect on a daily basis, it will probably not be anything new.

    Not life-changing

    This book was pleasant but not life-changing. I am a reviewer for Thomas Nelson publishing. I knew a little bit about Deborah Norville, and hoped I would get to know more about her through the book. What I found in this book were nice, light, inspirational stories, however, I felt the book could have been written by anyone. I'm sure the fact that Norville's name was on it, helped sales, but really this is just a book about respect. You won't know much more about Deborah than before you started it and that is disappointing.

    The book addresses the power of respect in the home, within a business environment, and in your personal life. Norville uses lots of real-life stories to make her case and that will appeal to some readers.

    The Power of Respect Benefit from the Most Forgotten Element of Success Book Review - The Power of Respect By Deborah Norville

    Do you receive an adequate amount of respect? Do you struggle with respecting others? This great book by Deborah Norville addresses these questions and more.

    Respect is a relatively simple concept, but one that is severely lacking in our society.

    She discusses some of the most important issues we face in today's society and gives you steps to help these problems. Issues such as stress, the economy, parental authority. Her practical tips and ideas are easy to put to use and surprisingly effective.

    She also cites examples of how this works all based on research and personal interviews she conducted and people she observed.

    It was an amazingly fast and easy read and I didn't have any problems staying interested, I would recommend it to everyone.
