Book Review: Crush Your Kryptonite

Whenever you think of Superman, it’s hard not to also imagine the little green rock that zapped the hero’s power. After reading this self-help book by Nate Hambrick, I’m starting to wonder if little specs of green dust are floating around me, stealing my power to own my life because I refuse to clean them up.

If you notice from the picture, this is the physical book that I have featured here, and that should tell you something. I first read this in Kindle Unlimited, which is Amazon’s library, and I loved it so much that I actually bought the hardcover. There is no fussy dust jacket and the layout of the book was well done.

Chapter 1 of this book starts off with crushing negativity. How relevant is that? Likely, one of the biggest things holding you back is that nasty little voice inside your head, telling you that you can’t do it. You’re not smart enough, wealthy enough, fill-in-the-blank enough. I know that’s something I struggle with constantly as a writer. So, I loved the fact that the author started out with that section.

In the chapter titled “Mastering Your Priorities and Potential,” one of the things I wrote in the margins (yes, I write in my books) is that

“I am 100% in control of my time.”

I grew up in a house where time was relative. We got there when we got there and maybe that was a bit of a farmer mentality. But that wasn’t the way I wanted to live my adult life. This passage really hit home with me, and I’ve tried my absolute best to take control of my time and not let it rule me.

“This is your life. Are you who you want to be?”

I LOVED this book and appreciated all the stories the author provided to illustrate the things he was teaching. It was a quick read with short, actionable advice.

There is no swearing and this book has a strong root in christian beliefs. I gave this book 5 stars and look forward to reading anything else Hambrick puts out.
