“beliefs are what makes the difference between a lifetime of joyous contribution and one of misery and devastation. It is what makes someone a hero and  another live in desperation.”

         What The Blind Girl Saw is one of its kind in the Personal development genre. It  talks about the power of beliefs in our lives. Using  great analogies the author opens with the story of a blind girl (Ivy) who in a bid to save her Love, had to sojourn an evil forest filled with ferocious beasts. How Ivy a blind girl navigates the forest is a mystery that connote She must have seen what no one else has ever seen and uses her vision to overcome challenges even when common knowledge dictates otherwise. The author skillfully weaves in the impacts of beliefs in our lives.He writes “beliefs are what makes the difference between a lifetime of joyous contribution and one of misery and devastation. It is what makes someone a hero and  another live in desperation.”

 

 

 

The book asks questions that pierces the core of the human soul, like;

  • Is the devil black or white or red?
  • Is God holy because we represent him with the color white?
  • Many look, but how many really see?
  • Many breathe, but how many really live?

“Rather than accept life as it has been handed down to you, it is in your power to get in the driver seat of  your life and take charge. “

It  also touches the concept of conformity as  the singular reason why men and women never really achieve anything
worthwhile in life.The author climaxes with  steps to help readers break free from limiting beliefs and traditions in the society.
Besides very few typos, What The Blind Girl Saw is a good read that will empower you to challenge the norms and traditions limiting you, to live truly and truly live a life that’s yours. “Rather than accept life as it has been handed
down to you, it is in your power to get in the driver seat of  your life and take charge. ”
