Valorie Burton is clearly a wunderkind -- a former beauty queen (Miss Black Texas USA); a cadet at the U.S. Air Force Academy; CEO of her own PR agency, which she founded at age 24; selected as one of the "Top 30 Under 30" by PR Week magazine; and now a motivational speaker and author.
Judging by this motivational book, which was initially self-published, Burton well deserves her success, achieved through hard work, focused effort, and an avoidance of pettiness. "When you have a 'rich mind,' " she writes, "you discover your mission in life and live it on a daily basis. You enjoy what life has to offer. You don't stress over the little stuff in life that, in the grand scheme of things, really doesn't matter very much."
In the tradition of Iyanla Vanzant, Elaine St. James, and Richard Carlson, Burton uses mini-chapters to deliver her thoughts on living a life of fulfillment and joy, among the topics:
- Change Your Ways to Change Your Life
- Use Failure as a Learning Tool
- Create Your Mission Statement
- Get a Mentor
- Save the Drama
- To Do Your Best Work, Be Your Best Self
