New Review : You Don't Just Wake Up Strong : Fabian Thorne
4 out of 5 books
Fabian Thorne is on a mission to inspire anyone who has gone through or is currently going through trials, tribulations or setbacks. Born with a debilitating cancer that took his sight in one eye, he continues to persevere despite the challenges he faces. He develops a love for the sport of football and is determined to play. He has a successful run playing football until an injury derails him. Thorne has a strong faith in God and is so determined, so he takes the lemons he was given and turns them into lemonade.
After being incarcerated for fifteen months due to his employment with a ruthless mortgage company, Thorne keeps his trust in God and strong principals: self-awareness, faith, gratitude, staying focused, and surrounding himself with winners. He overcomes the odds and starts his own fitness business and is a motivational speaker.
YOU DON’T JUST WAKE UP STRONG is a motivating memoir that shows all things are possible if you believe and don’t give up. Thorne endured a lot in life but he always manages to come out on top. Truly inspirational!
