Finding Fulfillment in Life and in Your Career
Best selling author of Love Wins, Rob Bell, described Breaking out of a Broken System as “Rage Against the Machine meets Dave Ramsey at its finest.”
Among the pages of their book, accomplish musician Seth Bolt and his younger brother, accomplished entrepreneur, Chandler Bolt reflect upon their childhood and the principles of life they learned from their parents while growing up in South Carolina.
The writing team point to the values of hard work, frugal living, and common sense that their parents instilled in them as the reason for their successes in music and business.
Divided in half between the two authors, the book not only documents the brothers’ individual experiences growing up under their parents’ tutelage but also their individual perspectives on working together to write this very book. In fact, the entire manuscript was drafted over the course of the seven day Christmas vacation the spent together in 2012.
The chapters written by Seth Bolt go as far as to include mention of songs he was listening to while he began to write each of his chapters.
The appreciation these brothers have for their parents is evident from the beginning book. As they share stories of how their parents taught them the importance of challenging the statuesque, overcoming procrastination, the power of giving, and how debt derails dreams their appreciation is solidified.
What is most valuable to the reader, however, is how both authors use the stories of their youth, as well as their more recent experience, to illustrate how anyone can become best-in-class at whatever they chose to peruse.
The American culture that promotes debt as a necessary part of life, that suppresses dreams as if it isn’t a crime, and that fosters imposter syndrome is the system to which the authors argue is broken.
This book is truly an uplifting and essential read for anyone who wishes to live the life they deserve rather than having to settle for the lackluster cards they may have been dealt.
Breaking out of a Broken System is an even more powerful resource for those suffering from their own absurd assertion that they are not worthy of leveraging the fantastic opportunities they already have before them.
