What I appreciate it most throughout each chapter of staying your lane was the actionable advice given for each discussion point. The content is concise and it's easy to understand. Whether you are an athlete, business owner, or an individual that wants to be a more effective Team Leader, Supervisor, etc. This book is a must read for Personal and Professional Development.

Charmas Lee is a different kind of champion, and you will be as well, after you read this book! Authentic is the word that sums up who Charmas Lee is. The reason why I believe every person should read this book is that Charmas has captured all the elements of human connection, human faith, and human determination between these pages. We are afforded the opportunity to celebrate the rise of great young leaders like Noah Bolton and Heide Baron. We experience the depths of human emotional capital when those closest to us are swept away by death long before their time is supposed to expire. The stories are relatable to each of us. Everyone is significant. Each of our lives are impacted by amazing individuals we come across or the impact we have on others that may be known or unbeknownst to us. In either case, we are inspiring. The truly amazing part about Charmas is he is whom you see! He has a strong commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ. He is a fierce husband for his wife Janice and has intense passion for others. There is no doubt in my mind that after you read this book you will live life more purposeful for yourself and for others.

Some people say there are just a few things in life that you can be certain of….You’ll live, you’ll die and of course you will pay taxes. If that’s the case I am a very fortunate man, in my life there is something much more certain. Every second of every minute, every minute of every hour, every hour of every day, while I am awake and sometimes even when I sleep, I can’t wait to create a positive change in someone’s life. Helping others recognize their value, that’s what motivates me. Love won’t let me wait. I have learned that the world is filled with beauty when the heart is full of love.
