Book Review of
This is the Day
The New York Times best-selling sports star and media icon motivates readers to stop postponing dreams and start making them happen now because–this is the day.
Beyond Tim Tebow’s exploits as a Heisman-winning football player, he is widely known and respected for his exemplary character and personal excellence, which have made him a role model for millions. When Tim interacts with the public, he often encounters people who feel “stuck”–unable to take action on matters ranging from daily life to pursuing lifelong dreams. In response, Tim often identifies a crippling fear or lack of courage, to which he advises: “now is the time to take some risks, to quiet the voices of defeat, to step forward and make a mark, because this is the day.” In this inspiring, motivational book, readers will receive the advice and encouragement to daily move from “pause” to “play” in finding deeper meaning and success. Tim illustrates the book’s themes with stories from his personal life that will delight all readers, including his an update on his dream pursuit of a baseball career.
I was sent an copy of This is the Day, by Tim Tebow and was very thrilled to get an early copy of it. I can remember when Tim Tebow played college football, and I have somewhat followed his career until he stopped playing in the NFL.
This book though caught me up on what he has been doing over the last few years. It is not only a memoir though; it is a helpful book that teaches some great life lessons. It is inspirational and encourages you to work towards your goals and become who God made you to be. This makes it a worthy read.
I do not agree with everything in the book and a lot of it I had read in other books, but it always good to remind oneself of how good one has it and how to focus on God and others instead of yourself.
If you like Tim Tebow, need a good reminder of how to focus more on serving others, or want to get after following your dream, this would be a great book for you. I also think that this would make a great gift for fans of football, baseball, and Tim Tebow.
