Dare to Take Charge: How to Live Your Life on Purpose by Glenda Hatchett

For nearly ten years, Judge Glenda Hatchett has delighted TV audiences with a brand of justice that turns the everyday into something eminently watchable.

Her message can be distilled into the following two words: Dare Yourself. Whatever obstacles or fears one faces, Judge Hatchett's prescription implores readers to write their own story in this life. With care and conviction, Judge Hatchett uses real life stories from the courtroom and her personal life to counsel readers. She shows them how to find their true purpose and discover their gifts, to be real about their reality and its potential outside of challenging circumstances, and to always be true to themselves.

Interactive as well as inspirational, DARE TO TAKE CHARGE challenges the reader to ask self-reflective questions that lead to moments of self-discovery and a defined pathway to healing. Daring her audience to study the positive with the same interest and intensity that they study the negative, Judge Hatchett uncovers the potential for grace and success in lives that are now punctuated with despair and unfaithfulness.

I finished Dare To Take Charge in 1 day! It is so powerful and moving. Judge Hatchett's message was exactly what I needed to help take my life (family and career) to the next level. I suggested this book for my next book club selection and I can't wait for the group discussion. This book is like no other self-help book I've ever read. Judge Hatchett keeps it REAL and shares stories of everyday people's struggles. I highlighted several crucial parts and am going to take the recommended steps to reach my goals and take charge of my future.

I have read this book and without even knowing the Judge I think it was written just for me. This is EXACTLY what I needed.

It is no secret that I am no big fan of self-help books. Furthermore, I am no fan of reality television, no matter the genre. With that in mind, I decided to look at Judge Glenda Hatchett's book with an objective eye. At first I was not very impressed as it did not seem much different from any other self-help book. However, Dare to Take Charge picks up when Hatchett relays experiences from her courtroom and the lessons she has learned in her life. Her warm tone and common sense advice brought me over to her side. However, I did feel slightly cheated when I noticed that there are some details of her life she tries to gloss over after going into great detail about the lives of others. Something about it felt a little dishonest, which is a no-no when it comes to self-help books for me. However, Dare to Take Charge is a rather good read. There is not much new in it, but there are a few uplifting stories that may do the soul some good. Even if you are not in the market to make a drastic change in your life, you may enjoy this book.
