In this book, Joyce shows us how she became and continually becomes this person – one who responds to apathy with action, lethargy with energy, and passivity with purpose, passion, and motivation.

As a Peak Performance expert of over a decade, I know for a fact that people are stuck in patterns of inertia;

She also shares what I have seen to be consistent in many of my mentors who have become great names in our time – “starting where you are.”

While overcoming inertia may have seemed daunting before you picked this book, reading this book will give you the guidance you need to surmount what might have seemed like a herculean task.

The keys Joyce has shared in this book are universal and, when applied, would result in something truly remarkable, something many have waited for – you launch out to become that person you have been created to be.

This book helped me to break free from my inertia and fear and start living the life I always wanted. It helped me to discover new opportunities, learn new skills, and pursue my passions. It also helped me to improve my health, relationships, and self-esteem. It made me realize that I have the power to change my life for the better. It’s been an absolute pleasure gleaning from the wealth of experience Coach Joyce has to offer. She is not just passionate about the work she does with her clients, she is graced for it. Personally, execution of some of my overdue goals became easier after I signed up to have her as a personal coach. Her energy, enthusiasm and ability to follow up and follow through with her clients stand her out. As the queen of execution herself, her work ethics and routine speaks for her. I’m so grateful I get to be accountable with my goals to someone who is clearly also smashing hers. Thanks coach J, I’m happy to ride with you.


It is, therefore, recommended for those who think there is no glorious future for them; that there is still hope for the hopeless, those facing trials never to look back but keep on the good works and “Shock” into action! The book encourages people who intends looking back by allowing spirit of doubt and fear not to retrogress but be focused and be determined to aim higher and dream big! For there will surely be a light at the end of the tunnel.

It is, therefore, highly recommended for people of all classes and race.
