Review of The Millennial’s Guide to Changing The World

Disclaimer: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Let me begin by saying “The Millennial’s Guide to Changing The World” is the wake-up call, not just millennials need but everyone. For most millennials when we hear the term referring to our generation; we cringe a little because of the negativity that is associated with it. I personally, can’t think of the last time I heard “millennial” in a positive way. Here’s my review of The Millennial’s Guide to Changing The World.

In Alison Lea Sher’s debut book she writes in a real and relatable way. This comes from the facts, her life experience, and the overall drive to share her thoughts on what’s wrong with society, the world, and everything in between in the most real and honest way. However, she doesn’t stop there. She also offers real advice for what we, millennials, can do to change things.

I highly recommend this inspiring read. You can find it on Amazon through this link. You can also check out Alison Sher’s website: http://www.millennials-incorporated.com

Sher sums it up the best by saying this book isn’t just for millennials, but also for the baby boomers are trying to understand us, the forgotten Gen X’ers, and the Gen Z’ers who might be trying to figure out what their future looks like.

Let me say it a little for those in the back, this book is NOT just for millennials. It’s to help bring a common understanding between the current generations that are attempting to coexist on this planet.

Once I began to read this book I was like, “wait… that’s me!” Sher discusses how millennials are struggling with finding purpose in a society where a traditional lifestyle looks like education, stable job, marriage, house, children, etc. But, millennials are most often seeking higher levels of education than the generations that came before us. Despite that, we still face an extremely competitive job market that leaves a percentage of us… screwed. This leaves most of us having to push off the traditional lifestyle, if not possibly walking away from it altogether.

Times are constantly changing, and the millennial generation alone is changing the way things are done. There are people making careers on YouTube and Instagram. You’re reading this on my blog, something I rarely tell people about because of the raised eyebrow I know I can expect in response due to currently seeking a degree. Then there’s the fact our generation is one of the most aware generations and has a desire to make a difference in the world. We want to feel like we have a purpose and fulfill it.

Honestly, this book made me feel like I wasn’t alone. It somewhat reinforces the idea that I’m not alone in stressing about my purpose – common for college students. Sher includes a multitude of interviews with millennials who are doing various things. Real stories from real people giving a dose of reality to anyone who reads this book. Sher includes stories of people with identity struggles finding themselves, the ones who are still struggling to find themselves, the ones who are already making a huge difference in the world, and the ones who are just trying to survive. These stories are all important.

A point that Sher emphasizes is the idea that everything is connected. Meaning, everything we do and every choice we make influence our environment which, in turn, then affects us. That’s why there is this overwhelming need for change. As millennials, we have the resources and power to make a difference… and that’s what we need to do.

“The Millennial’s Guide to Changing The World” is the book our world needs right now. Sher manages to touch on everything from politics, relationships, our environment and gets real about what’s wrong with us (ALL of us). Her humorous approach is what makes this book an enjoyable read, but she shows that change is possible with little perseverance.

So if you’re looking to change the world, or maybe just make a difference, I highly recommend checking this book out. It’s one of those books you can truly read over and over.

Book Of A Lifetime? Share It With The World

One of the very best things about reading is the discovery of something that changes your life. When you connect with the words of an author and they really speak to your heart. It can improve your living, help you deal with loss and make you realize that whilst life changes without much notice, you will always find a way of getting through. Books are empowering. They can be harrowing. If you don’t have time to read, make some time.

Autobiographical work can be really personal and throw up some incredible quotes which we take with us into our daily lives. So, if you have a book which has changed your life then it is your responsibility to share that with the world. Here are a few ideas of how you can do that.

Most simply, you can talk about it to your friends and share it. Often your passion whilst discussing the reasons you loved it, will be enough to interest your pals. Whilst you may not want to share your precious novel with mates who might not return it, you could buy them a copy as a gift. With your favourite quote written on the card. Joining a book club is a great social night out but will also give you the chance to share your experience of the book with others. So the first steps to ensuring the world doesn’t miss out on some incredible words of wisdom is to tell them about it!

A great way of getting other people interested is by using some of the quotes you loved as artworks. You could start with the famous slogan Tshirt. Find a custom t-shirt printing company and get them to print the quote on an oversized tee. Then wear it everywhere you go. Unless it is a well-known phrase then you will find people asking you about it. Then you can tell them exactly where it came from and why you adored it so much. You could also have a custom jacket made or if you want to be a little more subtle, use the wording as an engraving on a ring, or necklace.

Using words as art has been around as long as the dictionary. So consider taking this quote and using it in your home. You can have wall stickers made on the internet then have the phrase boldly on your living room wall. Or, if you want to be a little more subtle, you could have an A3 print made in some beautiful typography and hang it within a stunning frame. Your home should be a journey for people to learn about your life. So it is a perfect way of leaving a clue to what makes you tick. You can also have the book on hand to show them where it came from.

Don’t keep precious literary works to yourself. You are duty bound to get the word out and celebrate incredible authors. So think outside of the box and show the world what they are missing.

Sorry for not posting last week, I was fighting strep and was running a fever a few times, and me + fever = nothing makes sense.

Speaking of books, I recently read a fantastic book, and here is The Accidental Athlete by Stephanie Atwood book review.
