Thinking Outside the Box, but Living Inside the Lines!
By: Dr. Benjamin S. Akins
About the Book
Thinking Outside the Box, but Living Inside the Lines! fully embodies the theme of “responsible thinking” that leads to greater self-awareness and personal accountability. With decades of professional experience in various areas of leadership, ministry, life-coaching, counseling, and character development, Dr. Benjamin S. Akins was compelled to share many of his thoughts, concepts, and success strategies. His hope is for readers to embrace the purpose and power of “free-thinking,” while exercising disciplines associated with living an honorable life of character, class, and conviction governed by life’s restrictions.
