Discover Gold: Search for The Gold Within and Reach for Dreams by DonnaLee Overly is a self-help book by a critical care nurse. The author wrote this book as a motivation for readers to be content with life so that when they reach their final moments, they can be peaceful. Through her profession, she has to come face to face with people who regretted their lives and weren’t really happy with how they lived it. This book will act as a gentle guide to seek happiness, comfort, and the will to reach your dreams. The author shares her experiences, the experiences of her friends, and allows the reader to draw their own conclusions. She shares questions and makes the reader draw examples from these experiences. She believes that every life is unique and only the person living it can make the best decisions.
The moral of Discover Gold is simple: be grateful for what you have and don’t regret what never was yours. However, DonnaLee Overly encourages you to look forward to achieving your dreams. Giving up, not fighting for what you want might seem easy, but the more you look forward to the future the happier you will be. Your experiences are gold and you need to treat them as such. From reaching your five-year goals to becoming an overall happier person, this book will help you with this and everything in between. Her book is simple, her words are empowering and feel like talking to a friend. The author shares her struggles, her triumphs, and her need to move forward with the reader. The reader then draws courage from her words and looks for peace in their life. I liked how DonnaLee Overly left a worksheet after chapters so that readers can draw their own conclusions and take a step towards a better future. These act as a gentle nudge in the right direction. The author has done a wonderful job of sharing her thoughts and giving readers the inspiration to do better.
