More About This Book

Overview

Can the struggles and victories of the African American story be used as a guide to achieve success? Are you ready to start a personal reconstruction of your life and career goals?

Then read this book!

For People of Strength, Soul, and Spirit- part history lesson, part motivational speech and part results-driven, wonderfully blends these elements along with the tapestry of the Black in America experience, to create practical messages and current-day realities for a more fulfilling life and career. Deborah L. Parker has robustly compiled Seven Guidelines in this book, warmly woven together as a trifecta of strength, soul, and spirit. Cemented in the use of the word 'know', these guidelines represent timeless advice based on knowledge, well-being, and faith narratives as a 'way station' for courageously launching forward. Warping time with the rhythmic voices and virtues of the 'old folks' to present day, Parker lays out these achievement principles in a simple, yet riveting way. By acknowledging the painful parts of what's behind us, she movingly shapes those chronicles as foundational memories, using them as leverage to push through today's adversities. What do you get here? Formatted in sections like a workbook, Parker virtually coaches you with her writing. You'll identify your unique DNA (delivered natural ability), strengths, motivators and resources, along with essential tools that support practical life and career solutions. In this book, Parker, a cultural buff, Army veteran, and Chief Inspirer of The DPJ Training Group, brings over twenty years of work in career, leadership and personal development programs to skillfully make the case for balanced success action in a very real and encouraging way.

    For People of Strength, Soul, and Spirit - 7 Guidelines for Life & Career Success by Deborah L. Parker is a guide on how to achieve success in your career and meet your goals in life. It is a motivating book that will help in overcoming the problems on your job front. It also offers advice with necessary tools to take positive actions that will bring about success in your life. She has woven seven guidelines using strength, soul, and spirit to create a fruitful career and a contented life.

    Books like this are motivating for readers because they show the light and path and assure readers that there is a way out from the problems they are facing. The author has done it in an elegant way, pointing out experiences so that the book reads with authenticity. The author's personal experiences and how they helped change her also add to the depth of the book. My favorite chapter is Chapter 1 - Know Yourself. It kind of covers all the vital points and it is like a reality check.

    Life is not perfect. Each one of us faces setbacks and goes through bad phases. It is up to us to pull ourselves out of it in a positive way without letting it affect us. We need to work towards feeling good. What I like about this book is that everything is very clearly written in a way that is easy to comprehend. It is very clinically and methodically explained, making it a book which can be re-read many times during low career phases.
