Tyler Perry continues to use his life to inspire others that anything is indeed possible.
A few months ago the film and TV producer announced the release of his new book, Higher Is Waiting. In this intimate book, Tyler Perry writes of how his faith has sustained him in hard times, centered him in good times, and enriched his life.
Throughout the book, Tyler goes all out, giving insight and access to everything from earliest memories of growing up a shy boy in New Orleans to the Entertainment mogul that he is today. I was beyond impressed by the many messages of inspiration and encouragement Tyler shares via a collection of teachings culled from his experiences while sharing consistent themes of faith and perseverance.
In sharing his own personal experiences and life lessons learned along the way, Tyler speaks to the heart and soul of some today’s most pressing issues that individuals struggle with every day with sincerity and raw emotion. One of my favorite chapters is “Part Four: Harvesting the Fruit,” where Tyler opens up about his experiences in getting to where he is today and the importance of not giving up on your dreams.
As I read this book, I thought about how many times we shortchange ourselves out of opportunities and professional/personal growth simply because of fear. We are afraid of something, afraid of someone, or flat out afraid to try. I know I have had plenty of moments where an opportunity arose and I focused more on the possible negative outcomes than I did the possible positive ones.
Higher is Waiting by Tyler Perry
Higher is Waiting by Tyler Perry is a wonderful book! I encourage you to read it for yourself and think about some of the things that you are afraid of. Then think about all of the opportunities you have missed because of that fear. I encourage you today to take a small step towards conquering the fears that you have, and continue to make more and more steps every day or as much as you can. You will find that a whole new wonderful world awaits when you fly above your fears.
If you are ever going through the course of your day and find yourself needing a word of encouragement, Tyler Perry’s book Higher Is Waiting will certainly do the job. In the few days that I’ve had the book, I’ve revisited numerous key messages in the book several times just to keep me going.
The powerful message behind Higher Is Waiting is undeniable. Well done Tyler — Recommended.
