In all aspects of life- school, work, church- we are expected to conform to the common standards. A common message is “fit in, or leave.”
One of my close friends tells others I’m her friend who “didn’t fit in church, so I went outside the walls of tradition and created online Bible studies.” I cringed and took this as rejection, until I read The Anomaly Mind-Set by Sandi Krakowski.
Reading The Anomaly Mind-Set is a spiritual experience often with great discomfort. You’ll have the feeling of Heaven on Earth as Krakowski painfully removes the curtain of conformity to this world, then invites her readers into the uniqueness of God‘s Kingdom Plan. Written for both men and women, this is a useful business book, self-discovery book, and faith-based book.
Reading this book showed me its okay to be outside the box and to stop hiding my uniqueness. I saw similarities with Sandi’s story in myself and in my unique daughters. Delivered of fear, anybody can soar to places of their highest abilities. Delivered from conformity, great leaders and inventors thrive.
For any parent raising a child with Asperger, autism, or OCD… Sandi Krakowski reveals… gives PERMISSION … that it’s okay to be different. Can we get an Amen? She writes,”The world needs businesses built on integrity and faith. The world needs anomalies.”
Sandi refers to herself as a unicorn, an anomaly. When did the world, the education system, and the previous generation decide for our unicorn kids… what “normal” will be.
Written as a biography, Sandi coaches her readers through each of the ten chapters. Journal exercises and spiritual takeaways add personalization to the experience.
Throughout the book Krakowski reveals her spiritual identity as a daughter, calling God “Papa.” Her words are tender as she shares moments of faith at work. Her Christian theology is uninhibited by doctrine and rules; she pours from her heart.
I look forward to reading this with book club friends and discussing our uniqueness.
SAMPLE BOOK QUOTES FROM THE ANOMALY MINDSET
“The quirks and things we think of as odd and set us apart could be the stepping-stones to a career.”
“When we see how we’re all designed to not fit in but to live in beautiful harmony together, you’ll see that other anomalies inspire, motivate, and even give you courage as they press forward on their path.”
“As I began to grow my business, discover myself, and learn to walk in my truth, it was then that I realized my brain was exceptional, not broken; it was remarkable and beautiful, not weird or unsafe.”
“How did we ever get to a place where opposition is supposed to be feared and being passive is to be revered?”
“Our beautiful diversity, when brought together in harmony, brings us to a higher place of unity than we could ever get to alone.”
