For nearly ten years, Judge Glenda Hatchett has delighted TV audiences with a brand of justice that turns the everyday into something eminently watchable.
Her message can be distilled into the following two words: Dare Yourself. Whatever obstacles or fears one faces, Judge Hatchett's prescription implores readers to write their own story in this life. With care and conviction, Judge Hatchett uses real life stories from the courtroom and her personal life to counsel readers. Shows them how to find their true purpose and gifts, to be real about their reality and its potential outside of challenging circumstances, and to always be true to themselves.
Interactive as well as inspirational, DARE TO TAKE CHARGE challenges the reader to ask self-reflective questions that lead to moments of self-discovery and a defined pathway to healing. Daring her audience to study the positive with the same interest and intensity that they study the negative, Judge Hatchett uncovers the potential for grace and success in lives that are now punctuated with despair and unfaithfulness.
My Take: I have a confession to make. I don't watch Judge Hatchett. I have fundamental feelings about "reality t.v." They aren't real. But I make exceptions for reality dance and singing competitions. This does not include "America's Got Talent." Hooey!
So who is Glenda Hatchett? Glenda Hatchette is a judge but she is a determined human being first. Her reasons for becoming a judge in a family court were to simply make a difference and help people. She started out as a corporate lawyer and enjoyed that career and its high salaried benefits but made different choices which offered different paths which she took.
Judge Hatchett is a no-nonsense kind of a lady. She is respectful and true to herself. She sees the good in people and reaches within herself to dig out her God-given gift of teaching a man, woman, or child to fish.
Each chapter includes a single concept with an introduction. She follows the intro with anecdotes to illustrate her points. The personal stories she tells are compelling, heart breaking, and tear inducing. She concentrates on hope, the ability for a person to change, and introducing an action plan. A very specific action plan and hold yourself accountable. She uses good common sense without being gimicky. How dare you not expect great things from yourself?
I'm keeping this one for my own personal library. I really did enjoy it that much. I'll move Dr. Phil over. Judge Hatchett is empathetic, action oriented, unconventional, and pro-kids. She grew up in the south on the cusp of the Human Rights Movement. However, she never uses the race card to elevate herself. She might use it for another person, but only for those who were directly involved in the Human Rights Movement. Her words and encouragement apply to ALL people. Make your plans, plan on accomplishing your goals, recalculate when something changes, never, ever, ever give up, and give back to the community.
