Life’s Golden Ticket: A Story About Second Chances

 

BRENDON BURCHARD is one of the most watched, quoted, and followed personal development trainers in the world.   Brendon received his second chance at life after surviving a car accident.  This book has 780 reviews on Amazon and 87% of them are 5 star ratings.  It’s also a New York Times best seller, so it’s obviously worth checking out.

This book is an inspirational parable, a tale that will inspire anyone who has felt that perhaps they’d like a second chance to do things differently.  I’m sure we’ve all at some point in our life thought about how things could have been different, if only…..  Well, what if you were handed a golden ticket that could magically start your life anew?

That question is at the heart of Life’s Golden Ticket. The story opens with a woman who has been missing 40 days and just found critically injured.  In her hospital bed she begs her husband to go to the park she has been to.  She gives him an envelope to bring with him.  The husband goes to this park, an abandoned amusement park in which her younger brother had died many years ago.

The man takes the envelope and embarks on a journey of self discovery.  In order to release himself from the issues in his life, he must face his troubling past.  The past has kept him from fulfilling his dreams and living the life he always wanted.  With each character he meets he must answer difficult questions and face up to his shortcomings.  He learns a lesson from each and begins to take a hard look at himself.

The lessons learned here are universal and can be applied to anyone’s life.  The journey had a magical quality to it.  A very enjoyable read with so many great connections to every day life.  Life is so short it would be wonderful for everyone to live the life they truly want.  This tale of love and redemption is a great frame around the wonderful lessons found in the book.  Definitely worth checking out and a very quick read, yet one you will return to to ponder over once you finish.  Best of all there is a present for all in the back of the book in an envelope.  But do not open it until you read the book!
