Popular author and professional certified coach Valorie Burton knows that successful women think differently. They make decisions differently. They set goals differently and bounce back from failure differently. Valorie is dedicated to help women create new thought processes that empower them to succeed in their relationships, finances, work, health, and spiritual life. With new, godly habits, women will discover how to:

  • focus on solutions, not problems
  • choose courage over fear
  • nurture intentional relationships
  • take consistent action in the direction of their dreams
  • build the muscle of self-control

In this powerful and practical guide, Valorie provides a woman with insight into who she really is and gives her the tools, knowledge, and understanding to succeed.

Valorie Burton has been my go-to guru for personal growth for years. I'm so excited to put her 9 habits into practice as I take my career in a new direction and make the time to nurture those relationships that energize my life. Recently I sailed through a week jammed with challenges and commitments by harnessing the "power of the pen" as discussed in her final chapter. Every goal I'd set down on paper manifested beautifully--and people from whom I'd faced resistance in the past actually became my greatest allies in getting things done! I'm a better parent, partner and professional when I "Think Differently." Tonight I'll use Valorie's "three blessings" technique to get a better night's sleep. If you're looking for a tool to help erase the blockages and allow your inner brilliance to break through, this book is the one.

This book is well organized and the content remarkable! I found the topics to be applicable to not only my professional experience but, my personal life as well. The tools and exercises embedded in the chapters, help to reinforce the overarching theme of the book. Anyone desiring more out of life must read this book!!!!

Wow, SUCCESSFUL WOMEN THINK DIFFERENTLY is a life changer. I read this book in two days, couldn't put it down and just gave to my husband. Thank you, Valorie, for helping me start to change perceptions about myself and to getting on a road that helps me make better decisions, be more focused, and to take charge of my life again. Will read this many more times, I know, and am looking forward to your next book as well!

As a certified personal and executive coach, Valorie Burton actually works herself out of her job. You see, her most meaningful goal is to teach her clients to coach themselves. I’ve not ever utilized a personal coach, so I found Valorie’s book, Successful Women Think Differently, a dynamic tool to help yourself help yourself through God’s power. The questions Valorie proposes make you dig deep into yourself to really find out who you are and what makes you tick. It’s not a haphazard trip, but a methodical journey in changing the way you think so you can succeed in whatever area you need help. Valorie uses typical, personal accounts of real people and how they accomplished this task. They help to convey her message succinctly. “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Valorie encompasses seven key decisions: Believe You Can Do It–How do you explain your successes and failures? Get off the Hedonic Treadmill–We are poor predictors of our own happiness Stop Trying to Fix Your Weaknesses–Start building on what’s right Build Your Muscle of Self-Control–Talent isn’t enough Cultivate Positive Emotion–Saving your relationships and transforming your life Be Prepare for Battle–Expect obstacles and have a proven plan to overcome Don’t Be a “Maximizer”–Overabundance can rob your satisfaction; make you ineffective Don’t Go It Alone–Cultivate authentic connections/relationships Write It Down–The power of the pen reveals your inner reasoning Within each chapter are various decisions outlined, key lessons that are explained in that specific chapter, ‘what every woman should know’ section, a personal coaching toolkit, and a ‘think differently’ section. You will be personally confronted in your thinking, as that is where the problems begin; “As a man thinks, so is he.” I read this book in order to provide my review, but it’s a book I will need to go back to and answer the questions to glean new insights for myself. In other words, this is a hands-on book. It’s a powerful tool if you are willing to invest your time working it through. I highly recommend this book for personal study or even use in a discreet Bible study (“What’s said in this room stays in this room” type). Special thanks to Karri | Marketing Assistant | Harvest House Publishers for sending me a review copy in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.
