You Are One Decision Away From Being Awesome: Jon Acuff Start Book Review

christian book reviews

I have Jon Acuff’s voice inside my head. I just got finished listening to the audio book from his latest book Start. This book was highly recommended by one of my mentors, Nicole Cooper. And because I’m all about following success, it was a no brain-er that I had to get the book. So this is my first christian book reviews of any kind.

Right off the bat, you get a sense of Jon’s witty nature and sarcastic humor. He weaves practical wisdom in to his scenic way of storytelling. As I was listening to the audio book I was cleaning my house and from time to time I would find myself saying, “That’s right!”, “Yes!”, and even had a few “Amen’s!”

His transparency was very refreshing. He shared how his ego got in the way a time or two and what actions he took to correct his course.

Here are the 3 biggest takeaways from Jon Acuff’s book, Start.

  • You Punch Fear in the Face by addressing fear head on and shining a light to it. Fear hates being exposed so when you acknowledge it and strip down the source of the fear, you realize there really is nothing to fear.
  • The best way to Escape Average is to escape familiarity. Everyone does average very well because it what we all know. You have to get out of your comfort zone in order to be different.
  • Doing Work that Matters means embracing your special brand of awesome. You impact the world more when you step into your excellence, your phenomenal, and your amazing gifts and talent.
