One of my favorite books is, The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson. Here’s part of what it says on the flap:
You may not be able to describe it. You may have forgotten it. You may even no longer believe in it. But it’s there.
Meet Ordinary, a Nobody who leaves the land of Familiar to pursue his Big Dream. Once the Dream Giver convinces him to escape his Comfort Zone, Ordinary begins the journey of his life—overcoming Border Bullies, navigating the Wasteland and battling the fierce Giants in the Land.
This modern-day parable will get you started on your own daring adventure. What may first seem like a road full of obstacles is actually a series of opportunities to help you along toward your destiny.
This book helped me to keep climbing toward publication even when my heart hurt from rejection.
