Publisher: MindStir Media

Do you consider where you've been, and where you want to go? And who do you call on for guidance? After learning he was adopted out of the blue, Mike Thorne struggled to find his place in the world, plagued by perfectionism and fears of abandonment that followed him into adulthood.

But he identified a path for himself through sports, along with two key concepts that helped him transform a better way forward: that we need to Build, Belong, and Believe to make progress effectively, and that we must have others on our journey. People we can rely on to hold us accountable and for support-a Personal Trust Community. With his story, Mike teaches readers of all ages how to learn from his experiences and reach their North Star by employing the tools he built along the way. He's proof that by hustling with heart on the field and beyond, we can transform and thrive at home and work.

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Lis Anna-Langston and RABT Books Tours and PR. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

Hustle with Heart is one man’s story to find his place in the world. Plagued by perfectionism and fears of abandonment that followed him into adulthood. He learned three key concepts that helped him transform his life – Build, Belong, and Believe. Having been plagued by perfectionism myself, I empathize and identify with the author. I have always been motivated to move past my childhood and learn effective tools for building a happy and successful life for myself. For the most part, I feel like I’ve done well. However, like most people, I need a tune up every now and again. For this reason, I chose to read and review this book.

I find the author’s story to be inspiring and interesting. The tools presented are straightforward and easy to implement regardless of where people are on their self-discovery journey’s. Told with authenticity and heart this book kept me engaged from start to finish. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone looking to free themselves from their painful past.

Overall Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
