Publisher's Summary

Chop Wood Carry Water is the story of one boy's journey to achieve his lifelong dream of becoming a samurai warrior. Guided by "Akira-sensei", John comes to realize the greatest adversity on his journey will be the challenge of defeating the man in the mirror.

This powerful story brings the train-to-be-clutch curriculum to life in a powerful and memorable way.

Some things you will learn....

  • No matter how it feels, you are always building your own house.
  • How and why you must surrender the outcome in order to be at your best.
  • Why you never want to have your identity wrapped up in what you do.
  • Why your strength lies in faithfulness to the little things.
  • How to develop a heart posture of gratitude.
  • How to use the biggest challenges as a training ground for greatness.
  • Why the process is more important than the goal.
  • Why comparison is the thief of all joy.
  • How to develop a growth mindset.
  • Why talent is more of a curse than a blessing.

    "Wow! What an amazing story!"

    There were so many life lessons with great perspectives that really makes you think how you view something. This book will be on my 11 yr old sons listening list for sure. The narrator/ author did an excellent job of telling the story.

    Story
    "Repackage of others ideas and sayings"

    Nothing new here. If you have never seen a sports movie, read any other leadership books, or podcasts, then you may get something new. Very disappointed...Don't waste your $.

    Story
    "Overly simplistic... perhaps meant for teens?"

    All of the content seems okay, but it is nothing original. It is every basic self help concept boiled down and told in a cheesy anecdotal story line with modern details. The Japanese sensei is a bit cliche and doesn't come across as a believable story at all.

    Gave it three stars only bc the intent is good and it may be a good starting point for some young people.
