Tyndale House Up, Down, or Sideways: How to Succeed When Times Are Good, Bad, or In Between - eBook

In Up, Down, or Sideways, Mark Sanborn, author of the bestselling book The Fred Factor, prepares you for life’s inevitable cycles of up and down—and, too often, sideways. We tend to be surprised when downturns hit us and treat them as the exception—and when times are good, we act as if they will never change. In this book, Mark shows us what we should always be doing to be prepared for these cycles and events in our lives in order to make the most of them. Mark tells his own story of a downturn he experienced. Then, he identifies the principles and practices that will help you discover opportunities in both good times and bad, in up and sideways years. Mark provides timely wisdom that can’t be ignored no matter where you are in your personal or professional life.

This book has a down to earth, easy to read story line. Although I have not finished reading the book yet, busy schedule, I do look forward to finishing it. I enjoy the personal stories that add to the idea the author is explaining.
I also enjoy the ease of the e reader.

More philosophic than how-to,Up, Down, or Sideways refers to our personal economics. We will always be Up Down or Sideways and those conditions will change. If we are wealthy and well, plan for those conditions to change. Thankfully, joblessness and illness can change as well. So how can we live successfully amid life’s uneven flow?
The author allows us to define our success—not always financial but often including the financial. He says success means different things to every reader. He contends that most of what happens to us is not in our control, but we can control our responses. He discusses optimism without denial and goes into the power of thinking positively without kidding ourselves.
I got into this book slowly, wondering where he was going with it, but that soon changed. The "Ingredients of Love” section especially moved me and convicted me to look at my definition of caring and spotlighted the holes in it.
He touches on gratitude as a mindset and persistence in getting where we want to go.
The author talks about faith, but he doesn’t go into detail about his beliefs. The reader won’t see CHRISTIAN in capital letters, but his words echo the lessons in the Bible. This book applies to anyone who wants a well-lived life. A potentially life-changing read.
