(Review) FIND THE UPSIDE OF THE DOWN TIMES by Dr. Rob Pennington

by Cyrus Webb

We have all heard people around us say the saying that if something could go wrong in their lives it probably would. For Dr. Rob Pennington he saw himself as an individual who experienced a downpour of negativity and hardship in his life with seemingly no way out. Here is man that in his life has been shot, lost his job, audited and dealt with the loss of his wife. For some of us just one of those things would have been enough to push us over the edge, throwing up our hands and admitting defeat.

There was times when Rob didn't know how he was going to get through challenges. That is until he realized the power he personally had to change the way he perceived his circumstances and how that in effect brought about a whole new attitude. "It's hard for something positive to happen if you can't imagine it happening," he said to me during our in-person chat in 2018. He has created resources at to help others in their own path.

In the book FIND THE UPSIDE OF THE DOWN TIMES, Pennington takes us into his personal experiences, what worked for him and how we can do the same in our own lives. This is a book that not only tells you what to do. It allows you to see from someone who has done it what can happen when you decide to live life differently.

The other thing that is so great about Pennington's book is the reminder we get that there will always be someone who has it worse off than we do. We sometimes get so into feeling sorry for ourselves and what we are experiencing that we lose sight of how others need to be encouraged and uplifted through their own dark chapters. This is why THE UPSIDE OF THE DOWN TIMES is critical for all of us. The author let's us see that we can make a difference and use our experiences both good and bad to not only help ourselves but others as well.

You might not can eliminate stress but you can change the way you deal with it. If you realize the variable is you, then you can see a shift happen.

FIND THE UPSIDE OF THE TIME TIMES is a book I have read and told others about over the past 7 years. I recommend it not just because of the practical value it offers the reader, but the effect it is sure to have on all that hear about it. If you want to experience the bright side of life then get ready to realize that it all begins with you.
