Anyone up for changing lives and the world? I know I’m in!
Enter in this book.
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” – Dr. Seuss
Breaking Out of a Broken System by the Bolt brothers (Chandler and Seth – yep, the Seth Bolt from NEEDTOBREATHE a.k.a. awesomeness for your brain and ears) is not only an extremely helpful and inspiring read, it’s fun to read! The Bolt brothers talk a lot about breaking the mold of how to do things in life and they definitely broke the mold for how a book is written. There’s fun pictures, fun drawings and a creative/keep-your-attention type layout. Plus I chuckled a lot (and was reminded how fun it is to have siblings you can joke with :). This gem definitely deserves internet high fives.
“The seed of confidence can be planted in the mind … but it will only take root in the heart if it’s watered by hard working hands.”
The layout and design are just a couple of reasons to buy this book. Whether it’s the song suggestions to listen to during chapters, to having one half on black paper and the other on white, or the funny selfies (no annoying selfies, helpful selfies :), you’ll come away creatively inspired and eager to put the lessons learned into action.
While some ideas discussed in this book aren’t new, the presentation and background of the authors breathes life into these ideas. There’s also helpful challenges at the end of each chapter to get you moving into action. This book is written by two people who know what they’re talking about too. Seth is a member of NEEDTOBREATHE (what more is needed right?) and Chandler is a business ninja (no lie, he wins awards).
Real life stories. Practical steps. Making a real difference in your life and those around you. Trifecta.
“There’s no such thing as failure — only feedback.”
One of my favorite things about this book? It gives back! With #1Book1Life each book sold saves a life by providing a life-saving malaria pill through Palmetto Medical Initiative. If that’s not reason enough to go and buy this book, I don’t know what is!
I’m excited. I have plenty of goals and dreams and I felt like this was a energy shot with all the wonderful insight and reminders. I want to do things differently, I want to impact lives and I want to live my life knowing it’s to the fullest. So yeah…buy this book!
I’ll end with the quote they had at the end of the book:
“The minute that you understand that you can poke life and something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That’s maybe the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it. I think that’s very important and however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better, cause it’s kind of messed up, in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” – Steve Jobs
So friends, what are some of your long term goals and dreams? I’d love to hear what you’re working towards! Also, below is the full description of the book and the work they’re doing to change lives 🙂
P.S. NEEDTOBREATHE’s latest album, Rivers in the Wasteland, JUST CAME OUT!! With every album they release I think to myself there’s no way they can top the last one. Then they do. Rivers in the Wasteland is phenomenal. Seriously, how do they create such epic jams?! Please do yourself a favor and purchase it (here’s the link!). You shan’t regret it and you’re welcome.

Has your life turned out exactly as planned?
When you were younger did you have dreams of being a rockstar?
Who did you want to be before the world told you who you should be?
When we’re born, we enter a world full of systems, most of which are out of our control. There are tons of unwritten rules and social pressures we feel forced to follow.
We’re pressured to:
– study hard and get good grades
– get accepted and attend college
– graduate and find a secure job
– get married and start a family
We’re trained not to stray too far from the path.
If we follow this recommended path, why do we still feel that we’re missing something?
In Breaking Out of a Broken System, Seth & Chandler Bolt give you the tools to re-draw the lines, chart new roads, and expand the borders around your life.
Each of the brothers writes a totally different perspective on the 15 most important life lessons taught by their parents. These are things they thought everyone learned growing up, but they realized otherwise after going out into the “real world”.
As you read, you’ll have the option to read two completely different perspectives on each life lesson.
You can start with the artistic account written by Seth, bass player for the southern rock band NEEDTOBREATHE.
Dive into Chandler’s entrepreneurial story told from the perspective of the younger brother.
There are two major benefits that will manifest from reading these intriguing tales. First, your life will gain a fresh new outlook on how blazing new trails can be the perfect addition to your own path.
And secondly, you’ll be saving someone else’s life.
Each book sold saves a life by providing a life-saving malaria pill (#1book1life).
Each year, 1.2 million people die from malaria. This is solely because many villages only receive 3-4 months worth of pills per year to cure the disease.
Our mission with the “Breaking Out of a Broken System” book launch is to buy 10,000 life-saving malaria pills by selling 10,000 copies of this book.
Buy this book, change your life. Buy this book, save another.
