Just Get Up:
And Manifest Your Inner Genius
By Isaac Samuel Miller
Abandoned by his father at the age of seven, Isaac Miller embarks upon a thirteen-year journey to fight his way out of a life of crime, drugs, mediocrity, and poverty.
Using his teenage imagination and work ethic as his guide, Isaac provides for his family, including his schizophrenic mother, and fights his way to becoming an entrepreneur at the age of seventeen.
Through his story, Isaac demonstrates how you can start with nothing and still live your dreams. Just Get Up teaches you how to capture your own life's dreams through exposing your inner genius. This guided tour of self-development will teach you how to unlock your life's true treasures. It will appeal to all people seeking a real-life inspirational story of overcoming adversities.
Along your journey you will find The Limelight Spot Effect, The 27-Month Plan, and The Octagon Way as you build your own success through his Just Get Up program. Isaac invites you to Just Get Up and tap into your unlimited potential as you discover your inner genius one chapter at a time.
“When others doubt you, it’s okay, because it’s your dream to pursue, not theirs.”
This, I felt, was one of the most profound sentences in Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius by Isaac Samuel Miller, and it sums up everything about this book. Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius is a motivational guide that encourages you to not only take responsibility for the choices that you make but, more importantly, it shows you how to take control of your life and how to achieve your life goals.
Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius is a candid, very genuine, book. Miller delves deep into his poverty-stricken childhood to emphasise not only where he came from, but how he pulled himself out of the poverty-trap that he and his family were in. Not only did Miller follow his dreams, but he made them come true through hard work and dedication. These captivating personal anecdotes give those who read this book hope that they too can follow his example and live the life that their heart truly desires.
If you want to get the most out of Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius, then you need to read it in full, without skipping over any of the chapters. Each chapter builds on what comes before it, which made the lessons that Miller is teaching easy to understand. Miller encourages you to reason with your emotions, and look at them logically and with conscious thought. His analogy of a shadow worked exceptionally well and focused the mind on the understanding that your shadow is unsubstantial and most of the time behind you.
Miller speaks and explains many things in this book. I thought his analogy of what The Limelight Spot Effect is, made a lot of sense. Likewise, Octagon Way, Numbers Don’t Lie, and the 27-Month Plan was incredibly thought-provoking and are certainly worthy of consideration if you want to achieve your dreams. But, this is not a quick-fix book, Miller clearly states to get to where you want to be takes time and a considerable rewiring, in want of a better word, on how you perceive the world. He implores his readers to stop following Life’s GPS (Global Positioning System) and instead follow your own heart's GPS.
Miller emphasises, throughout this book, that you must get yourself out of the mindset that modern living has so assuredly convinced us is correct. Miller states that to have a ‘successful life’ is not about being admired, it is about what is required for you to achieve what you want to achieve. Miller makes a valid point by stating if you don’t do this, you will become your own worst enemy. He also says that you are only a failure if you stop moving forward — stop trying. Such words of wisdom were precisely what I needed to hear.
Miller backs up his points by looking at the history of some very successful people (both dead and still living) to demonstrate how they achieved their success by following what their heart was telling them. The historical people he speaks of are all household names, such as Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr and others... But he also describes how Arnold Schwarzenegger and Oprah Winfrey achieved their goals, which I thought was very enlightening, as well as encouraging.
Miller also encourages his readers to find balance in their lives. And more importantly, make time for the essential things. Miller urges you to put in your diary time for work, family, rest and play. I had never thought of actually writing down such things in my diary, but from now on, I will! I believe this is a simple yet handy tool to help you organise your time.
Miller is a man of deep faith and his relationship with God is evident throughout this book. He takes relevant passages from the Bible to support his argument. With God in mind, the stories Miller uses to articulate his point are almost parables in the telling, which worked exceptionally well in the context of this book. It is so much easier to visualise what Miller was trying to convey when he used stories to demonstrate his message.
Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius is a book that you need to have pen and paper with you while you read. I found myself jotting down notes and highlighting particular passages that I found interesting and noteworthy. There are also several exercises in this book, and I thought they were not only thought-provoking, but they kept me directed as to what I wanted to achieve. I believe these are exercises that I will come back to again. This is an incredibly encouraging book, with a bright light of hope shimmering through the pages and giving confidence to the soul.
As Miller so elegantly writes:
“Stop dating your dreams and go certify your true love by marrying your dreams.”
Just Get Up: And Manifest Your Inner Genius is a book worthy of your attention... It is also an essential one if you want to turn your life around and follow those dreams you dared not follow before.
I Highly Recommend.
