I Am Great Because I BElieved It First by Brandon Richard

I AM GREAT BECAUSE I BELIEVED IT FIRST by Brandon Richard, reviewed by On My Kindle Book Reviews
Lets first get this understood, you control your reality starting with your mind.

I Am Great Because I BElieved it First is a mindset that we must understand that "I" regardless of external positive praises from others or negative criticisms; it's not real nor relevant until you believe it, absorb it and therefore embrace it. So with that being said, this book is to show you how you are not what they, he , or she perceives you to be. But only what I know "I am", and watch as the Universe will respond accordingly.

Have you ever had deep, philosophical discussions about life and who you are with a friend at 2:00 in the morning while drinking a few pots of coffee? You know, the friend who cuts through all of the psychological b.s. and tells you like it is? If so, then that pretty much sums up Richard's writing style.

Using a combination of his personal experiences and affirmations that he used, Richard's shares his simple philosophy with readers: be you, do you, and find ways to be and do better than the day before. Change how you think and you will find opportunities in unexpected places. Richard's writing style is understandable, easy to relate to, and refreshing in a market filled with books written by successful people who urge readers to follow the trail they blazed to success by being like them.

The only issue I really had with this book was the formatting. There weren't any real breaks between chapters and it read like one very long chapter. It's easily fixed with different typography for the chapter headings and spacing. I wouldn't say anything about it, except it did detract from my overall reading experience. There are some errors with spelling, mostly homophones; however, these weren't bothersome but I am concerned that more critical reviewers may home in on these errors and give the book a lower rating than what it deserves. It's like a diamond; give it a polish and it will shine.

If you are looking for a motivational book that promises to fix all of your financial/personal woes in "just 10 simple steps," then this isn't the book for you. However, if you are looking for a motivational book that inspires you to start believing in yourself, then I Am Great Because I BElieved it First could be the book you've been waiting for.

About Brandon Richard

Brandon Richard, author of I AM GREAT BECAUSE I BELIEVED IT FIRST.
Brandon Richard, author.
Its really kind of hard writing about myself, because I don't know where to start or end. But I was born July 30, 1989 in St. Louis, MO. I am from the inner city of St. Louis and the oldest child of both parents. I really hate to put a ceiling on myself when describing myself in a bio with things off the past because it's old and I'm such a broad person. I really love to communicate (which I know is my gift) doing it through all avenues; talking, writing, even music. I"m also an avid reader, but my favorites are metaphysics, spirituality, psychology, and entrepreneurship genres. I am a very deep philosophical person who loves to uplift and help people but at the same time energetic and playback( weird combo, but that's me) . I am a father of a beautiful 3 year old girl. I've did a 6 year stint in the army reserves, graduated from Hazelwood East High school then later graduated from Harris-Stowe State University with my B.A. in Business.
