Limitless ~ Review with Giveaway

Limitless
The Power of Hope and Resilience to Overcome Circumstance
By Mallory Weggemann
With Tiffany Yecke Brooks

Mallory's childhood was one of happy memories but her family wasn't unfamiliar with heartache and struggles. So when a medical procedure went wrong, altering her life permanently she had a foundation on which to build on and the strength of her family to help see her through it. 

With hard work, Mallory remade her life but swimming was something that carried over. Swimming provided a challenge that forced her to improve herself. And competing was a goal that could be defined and focused on. But when an accident threatens the life she has created she needs to rediscover who she is and what defines her life.

When life throws us the unexpected we are left with questions. Questions that must be answered, that demand a response from us. If we don't respond we will be stuck, limiting ourselves. But with the love and support of those closest to us, we can respond. As circumstances change our response may change, but it is our choice. And our choices are limitless, defined only by the limits we place upon ourselves.

Limitless falls into the self-help, motivational genre with a good dose of biographical material as we are taken on a journey of discovery through Mallory Weggemann's life. A life of highs and lows. Joys and disappointments. A life filled with family, love, and support. Throughout this book, there are little gems of wisdom that are best stored away to provide us with needed treasure when we too face challenges. 

This book would make an excellent book club selection. If one is drawn to "the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat" this would be a worthy choice to add to your shelf of books. If you are asking why and unable to find an answer this book may help you find peace in not knowing.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Hardcover: 272 Pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (March 2, 2021)

The Paralympic gold-medalist, world champion swimmer, ESPY winner, and NBC Sports commentator uses her extraordinary story to equip others to meet whatever challenges they face in life.

On January 21, 2008, a routine medical procedure left Mallory Weggemann paralyzed from her waist down. Less than two years later, Mallory had broken eight world records, and by the 2012 Paralympic Games, she held fifteen world records and thirty-four American records. Two years later a devastating fall severely damaged her left arm, yet Mallory refused to give up. After two reconstructive surgeries and extended rehab, she won two golds and a silver at the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships. And perhaps most significantly, she found confidence, independence, and persevering love as she walked down the aisle on her wedding day.

Mallory’s extraordinary resilience and uncompromising commitment to excellence are rooted in her resolve, perseverance, and sheer grit. In this remarkable new book, Mallory shares the lessons she learned by pushing past every obstacle, expectation, and limitation that stood in her way, including the need to:

  • redefine limitations;
  • remember that healing is not chronological;
  • be willing to fail;
  • and embrace your comeback.

Mallory’s story reminds us that whatever circumstances we face, we have the capacity to face down whatever challenges, labels, or difficulties confront us–and to do so on our own terms.
