Life has a way of throwing all challenges to human beings that threatens their peace, development and success. When faced with such threats and challenges, human beings naturally are forced to go into survival mode.
In his latest book, Erik Kruger cautions against such a move of being a survivalist, rather he wants us to be dangerous to that which sends us into survival mode.
In Dangerous, Kruger invites us to be dangerous to which that threatens our emotional, physical, psychological, economical, and social needs.
I have to be honest that the title at first threw me off, because I thought this is a book that encourages people to be violent based on how the word dangerous has come to be understood by many of us.
However, inside the pages of this book, Erik uses the word in a positive way in that he encourages us to never just allow the threats that we face in life to take over and rule us. Instead we should be dangerous to them and fight them through his proposed measures.
I must say that perusing through the pages of this book, I find myself agreeing with some of the insights that the scribe provides, particularly with his advice on regulating one’s emotions.
Oftentimes the things that threaten our peace starts in our minds and dominate it, and if we are able to regulate our emotions and how we react to challenges, we will be in a better position to make decisions that would make us more dangerous to anything that we are face. And Erik makes us to better understand that with his solutions on how how we should fight our threats.
Dangerous is a clarion call for all human beings to never surrender to the threats of life, but find courage to fight fire with more fire.
I must say that I am not a fan of motivational books, and that is because many of them have impractical solutions. However, I am glad that I have feasted on this one. It touched my life and equipped my mind with the right tools to fight all the danger I would face in my life.
What I like about this book is the fact that the scribe does not remind the readers their threats, but provides more solutions to the challenges.
Erik should be congratulated for packaging a book full of positive ideas that would help so many people to fight against so many things that threaten their lives on a daily basis. His ideas are pragmatic throughout and relatable.
I believe this is a book that gives everyone control over their lives and most importantly it provides us with tools to step into our own power to make better decisions about our lives.
This is a quick read and I encourage everyone, particularly young people who are going through emotional distress to read it.
You will find tools that will calibrate your thinking, improve your skills and make you to be one step ahead of your threats.
Dangerous is a well-packaged positivity toolbox.
