Publishers Description Don't wait until tomorrow for the life you want today. Dr. Creflo A. Dollar illuminates eight steps to the magnificent life you crave Confidence, peace, and abundant life--we all long for these things. In this life-changing book, author and renowned pastor Dr. Creflo A. Dollar challenges readers to stop wishing for a satisfying life. Instead, Dr. Dollar proclaims, we should be claiming the success that God promises today. We do not have to be defined by past failures or mediocrity; we must move forward into the richness available to us right now. God has designed a glorious destiny for each of us, and all we have to do is take hold of it. In order to seize our destiny, each of us must be willing to radically transform our lives. "If you don't like the way you feel," says Dollar, "you've got to change the way you think." By taking manageable steps along the way, each of us can achieve life to the fullest--until it overflows.
From Publishers Weekly Twenty years after founding the World Changers Church International, Dollar (Claim Your Victory Today) continues to offer advice on applying the Bible to everyday situations in pursuit of a prosperous life. Each easily digestible chapterfirst broken down into a homily-esque message, followed by a recap, relevant scripture and an exerciseaddresses the titles eight steps. Maintaining a natural but firm tone, Dollar vacillates between scriptural and personal experience to make his points. Those already familiar with his ministry will most likely find his suggestions relevant and helpful. However, seekers, especially those new to Christianity, may find parts of the second half of the book a bit vague when it comes to instructions such as come up with your own confessions based on Gods Word when trying to form new habits or memorize Scriptures so you will have ammunition to cast down ungodly thoughts when working on self-discipline. While the advice may improve a readers connection with God, more specific suggestionswhether of actual verses or even just how to find a certain versewould better round out Dollars blueprint for a godly life.

Wonderful book! Apr 23, 2010
This book is full of great information. I plan to buy whatever else Dr. Creflo writes. What a wondeful ministry, wonderful book, and wonderful preacher. Listen to his show each week, your life will turn for the better! More importanly, as he preaches you soul will live for eternity. Make sure you find out where you soul is going for eternity, it the most important thing you can ever do.
I love Creflo Dollar but..... Mar 2, 2010
I watch Creflo Dollar regularly and love his ministry because there is nothing that he teaches that you can't to look up at home in your own personal bible. But in my opinion, it would be more beneficial to buy a concordence than this book (if you don't alright have one). And I will give you a summary of the 8 steps so you can save money in today's stressed economy.
Step 1: Think about all of your issues and list them in a journal. Step 2: Find all the biblical references pertaining your issues in a concordence Step 3: Write down all the ones that speak to you or address your specific problem. Step 4: Reveiw the scriptures frequently (meditate on them day and night) Step 5: Identify the habits that contribute to ungodly thinking and eliminate them Step 6: Do at least 5 deeds a day to benefit someone other than you. List 5 things you love so much you would do them for free...then do them every day. Step 7: Following this ritual reguarly will create new habits. Step 8: Pray at least 15-20 minutes a day (Which in my opinion should have been step 1) AND YOUR ON YOUR WAY TO THE LIFE YOU WANT.
Save your money and buy Jack Canfield's Success Priniciples all of the prinicples are scriptually sound and he gives you almost 70 life priniciples including these 8 steps for less. As the daughter and grand-daughter of preachers this the book that spoke to me most. The Success Principles(TM): How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be If you need the scriptures just contact me and I will give them to you!
Are You Ready to Take the 8 Steps to Having the Life You Want? Jul 20, 2009
So what is your greatest fear in life? What do you feel you are missing?
I can honestly say that my greatest fear was of being homeless. I know what it's like to be homeless, and it's an awful situation to be in.
The problem though is that in many ways I believe I set myself up for this. I don't mean to sound harsh, but sometimes we can take actions based on how we think that will cause the things we fear to happen.
You can avoid giving into your fears and achieve the life you want if follow the steps Creflo Dollar has outlined in "8 Steps to Create the Life You Want."
One of the most important things I learned from reading this book is the importance of scripture and reading and studying scripture on a daily basis. One of the reasons scripture is so effective is that you can use it to reprogram your mind in a positive way. Also, you discover that fear and faith can't exist in the same space. If you have faith, you won't have fear, and it will change the way you think for the better. You won't fall prey to emotional thinking, which can too easily sabotage any efforts you take to succeed. It really is that simple.
It is unfortunate that too many churches don't emphasize how important scripture is. I think it's the reason so many churches are falling apart and dying. It's also the reason why so many Christians are failing in life, and they fail at a rate that is the same or higher as non believers (Divorce, finances, disease, etc).
There's more. Here are the eight steps:
1. Revolutionize Your Words 2. Overhaul Your Thinking 3. Take Charge of Your Emotions 4. Make Powerful Decisions 5. Evaluate Your Actions 6. Establish Healthy Habits 7. Develop Godly Character 8. Embrace Your Destiny
I didn't just read this book. I looked at the steps and started taking the steps that I wasn't taking already.
Now I am seeing growth in every area of my life: financial, physical, spiritual, and mental. Things that used to bother me don't bother me anymore. My bills are getting paid, I have extra money to spend, and for the first time in a long time, I'm enjoying my life, and it just keeps getting better and better. Life is just so good, and I believe that I will fulfill my God given destiny. A destiny that is even more incredible than I can ever imagine.
Now understand that this is the result of reading the Bible and following Jesus Christ. If you want the type of life Jesus was talking about though, one of abundance, happiness, and just pure unadulterated joy, thenr read this book. Follow what it says. It will change your life, and it will blow you away at how wonderful your life really is. You'll achieve abundance and prosperity in EVERY area of your life.
There are a lot of great books out there that will teach you how to live a satisfying Christian life. This book will take you to the next level and beyond. A must read and one of the top 15 most influential books I have ever studied and read. You definitely do not want to miss this book.
YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK! May 18, 2009
Listen...I'll be really brief here... just buy the book. It gives you a real jumpstart on getting your life going in the right direction. Follow this book along with your Bible and your life will change for the better.
I'm glad that Creflo shares his wisdom Feb 23, 2009
I enjoyed this book very much. It is definitely easy to read. Dollar does not use a ton of scholarly words and phrases, but simple easy to apply instruction.
I think we should all feel blessed that he is obedient, and shares his knowledge and understanding with us. Many people are out there wondering why they are still in the same situation now (or worse) than they were when they graduated high school or college. When you are finally able to admit that your way of doing things in your own power isn't working like you wanted it to, pick up this book, and Creflo will help you get started fulfilling God's plan for your life.
Everything he says is biblically based. He definitely has a blessing on his life to make it easy for the average person to understand God's message and promises to us. I definitely appreciate him. Good book.
