Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Zoro’s “SOAR, Nine Proven Keys for Unlocking Your Potential” is an inspiring guidebook for anyone seeking to reach their God-given potential in life. Based on the premise that God grants us talents and the opportunity to live a life of rich fulfillment, Zoro’s nine life principals will help you visualize and actualize a path toward your goals and aspirations. I was easily able to connect with the message and teaching through the many real life examples Zoro provided for each principal and have already been able to incorporate his lessons into my everyday life. I know this book will serve as a guide for me for years to come, to return to when I’m thrown a curve in my road, or need to adjust my plans. Through SOAR, Zoro has made it clear to me that the dreams I have for my life are not just dreams – that they are the vision of my life God planted in me from the moment I was born. This revelation alone was worth the price of the book. While many Christian self-help books focus on the cult of prosperity – how God is going to make you rich and successful, Zoro avoids this trap and focuses on how we can lead a life of fulfillment. Biblically sound, with real-world examples reinforcing each life principal, I believe this book will become an evergreen in your Christian library as it already is in mine.
As a family with two kids under 15 who are involved in competitive year round sports and also musicians for several years, we have read SOAR! together as a family. We have found that each page has many wonderful talking points which in turn given us many things to discuss as a family. It has brought up past experiences in our kids lives that have challenged them. It has helped to shape their ideas of seeking and attaining a higher level of personal goals and overcoming adversity and the challenges of modern-day negativity among peers. Zoro's personal testimony of hardship, faith and focus on the things that can shape the destiny of life has inspired all of us. I am appreciative that the book reaches the young ones to learn how to think about the future and also, the older ones of us who need a reboot in our motivation. My youngest is only 10 and yet we found that SOAR! has helped her see that the little things that are done everyday can make the difference between just "OK" and "really great." We enjoyed all the side notes and quotes, and while many of them lead to little rabbit trails of discussion, I don't think that we've ever had more talk between us that has helped us to learn about each other and ask each family member about ways that can better shape the course of our lives together.
I am so glad I bought this book. I read it from cover to cover. I was inspired and got direction on how to pursue my dreams. This book showed me pursuing my dreams is not a ridiculous waste of time. Dreams do come true. I'm getting extra copies for friends and family. Sunil
Everyone needs to read this book! It’s a life-changing read that’s very thought-provoking, inspirational and Christ-Centered. It keeps your heart focused on God and helps shape your daily actions to impact your own life as well as the people around you. Zoro also shares some of his personal stories - from many challenges to the triumphs and glories God prevailed in his life. We all have many adversities in life and this book helps us ‘SOAR’ through with practical guidance, prayers, and lots of encouragement. I’m excited to share this book with my Church and friends to also help them SOAR! Thank you Zoro for this amazing book that has impacted my life with so much fruit! David Curtis
