Elevate: An Essential Guide to Life Reviews
Elevate is a book worth a second read. It’s written in an engaging narrative, author’s personal examples are provided, and the structure makes it easy to follow advice and progress.
This book provides concepts and follows those concepts with steps and advice.
There are some self help books which are wordy but without meaning or practicality. Elevate is not one of those books. The realizations provided by Deitch are relateble and worthy of assisting the reader in not changing, but elevating.
I received this book from the publisher via BookishFirst in exchange for my honest review. -- I am a sucker for a good self-help or motivational book. My collection started when I was doing my undergrad and my college had a slight obsession with adding them to the curriculum of all the business classes. That being said, I need a book that is easy to understand, relatable and has the capacity to bring me some real-life applications. This book does that and then some. The format of the book is eas ...more
Full Disclosure: I received this book as a giveaway. Elevate is a different kind of self-help book. It not only explains the reason for behaviors; the second half of the book is devoted to an action plan. This book interested me as I am entering a new phase in my life and believed the information would be benefical as I craft this new beginning. Elevate did not disappoint. It is full of food for thought on how to live your best life. I have already started using some of the ideas (I am the BEST ...more
Elevate is definitely not one of those books that can be stopped and started often; you have to devote time to reading it through at least once, then go back and reread each section with the purpose of taking notes!
Author Joseph Deitch catches the reader's attention with honest truths without being too wordy. For example, in Part One (Awareness) Deitch writes, "true attention entails looking, listening, and learning without prejudice." Without prejudice. Sounds simple, but try paying attention ...more
I was so happy that I recieved Joseph’s book Elevate. I knew this book would be coming to me the moment I read the first look. I have been on an awakening, spiritual, finding my true self journey since I was around 18 now I’m 42. Which has changed my life just like Joseph talks about in the book. I will be continuing following my true path for the rest of my life. This book would help everyone who reads it, if they are willing to let go of the conditioning we all go through and are open to chang ...more

Who hasn't picked up a self help book because they have felt frustration. Self help books lately have fascinated me. I'm in the category get busy learning or get busy dying. I correlate the learning process with staying healthy. An idle mind is the devil's playground.
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.... All right, I'm ready. This isn't a one sitting type book but a book to read stretched out over weeks while you do your own inner d ...more
“...when our awareness expands, so does our world ... and it becomes increasingly wondrous.”
~ Joseph Deitch
Years ago, I devoured many of the self help books on the market, after going through a particularly rough period in my life. I learned a lot that over the years has been very beneficial. When I saw this, I wanted to read about what a man who wrote a book about lifelong quest for wisdom and self-improvement would have to say. I feel I was very fortunate that I received this book in giveaway. ...more
I feel like by stating that I have not been able to pick up a nugget of wisdom (just yet anyway) and elevate myself beyond my limitations, that I fall into the same group of people the book warns the reader against.
However, even though I have not learned anything new, I do think we can all sometimes use reminders of the important things such as being open and recognizing we all have our own personal biasis.
I liked the quotes that preceeded the chapters in the book that helped guide each chapter ...more
