"Success is not only about what you will accomplish," writes the ICN 2022 World Civility Icon Awardees as Global Educators of the Year, "Ultimately it’s about who you will become."
In their latest book, Rest, Retreats, Revival and Other Comedies, subtitled You are Success in Process, Professors Chris and Carol Green offer their readers a healthy and balanced perspective on what it means to
Rest in God and get out of the grind mindset;
Retreat after devastating setbacks and disappointments;
Revive and reset to come back out fighting again; and to be open, honest and humbled by the Comedy of Errors; the mistakes and bad decisions, upon which God extended mercy and grace.
"This book isn't for everyone," the Greens affirm, "It's for that person who is sick and tired of projecting a brave front while hiding their deep disappointment behind spirituality. It's for the person who is no longer looking for a typical self-help manual, filled with inspirational stories and motivational meditations. THIS book is for that soul who is ready to challenge themselves about why things aren't going right; and wants to finally break FREE from the unending cycles of defeat and discouragement."
From the Book's Foreword:
This book is a revelation on how to understand change. It lays out the truth about "process", as productive lives are always on a journey of constant growth and change. To stop growing and changing is to die.
The Greens are top Searcherdemcians who are not afraid to take new paths to help lift and better humanity. They are not scared to be Searchers of a new way of doing things and because of this, they are fruitful.
They have gone through growth, death, and rebirth, while leading in a new philosophy of education for which the world is crying out.
I've had the privilege of knowing and working with the Greens for nearly a decade. I have observed their approach and can vouch for their genuineness and productivity. They have diligently worked, scraped, and sacrificed their way to top stages of influence.
I say, "When all else fails, follow the fruit." Professors Chris and Carol Green are good fruit and have produced tangible evidence and results of their life skills theory, "You are Success in Process."
In this book, you are sure to find where you are "in your process." You are sure to find your next step. You will be encouraged and reassured that you are not alone in your journey. You will find that you are "God's Success in Process."
How refreshing is that?!
This is a riveting book that has inspired and impacted my life.
You will already be succeeding by picking it up.
