Great Labor-Day Weekend Read!

I stole this book from my husband as he was reading it…

then wouldn’t give it back 🙂

Jesse Itzler spends 31 days living and training with a no-joke, real-life, U.S. Navy SEAL.

Check out Jesse’s inspiring, true, and hilarious tale.

 

This is NOT your typical parenting book!

I’ve read sooo many and NONE of them stuck like this one. Why? Because…

1) It’s funny and easy to read, so it doesn’t feel like homework.

2) It’s realistic.

3) My kids are supportive instead of competitive with each other BECAUSE OF THIS BOOK!

 

If you’ve heard of this book but never read it, you’re not alone.

If I could require all humans (and teens) to read ONE BOOK,

it would be this book.

(NOTE: This is NOT a book about how to manipulate others. 

It’s a book about how to communicate with other humans.)

 

How to Be Miserable is not only hilarious, but it’s SO TRUE!

It points out to all of us the silly things we do that help keep us miserable.

If you know anyone super-quirky, or sometimes feel like you’re different

from everyone else on the planet, you’ll totally love this book.

It’s about a genetics professor and his attempt to find love in a very awkward but lovable way.

 

Loved this book…

It’s a quick read. A true story.

And a reminder to us all that what we think we’re after,

may not be what will truly make us happy.

 

 

If you’re a writer, used to write, or ever plan to write in the future…

I highly recommend Dani’s book! It’s funny, honest, and

might just give you the inspiration to get to work!

 

Mary Spio is amazing… her story is truly inspiring and fascinating!  Plus, she offers what she learned in her years from “a barefoot child in Ghana to a real-life Rocket Scientist.”

My three favorite quotes from her book:

Tenacity – Expect challenges and keep moving “when we plant a seed, don’t keep uprooting it to see if it’s growing.” 

Failure – “Game changers achieve uncommon success because they are able to learn the lessons that failure always brings.” 

Embracing Differences – “Sameness leads to stagnation and ultimately decay and death. Diversity is not just a nicety. It is a necessity for survival.”

I love this book for two reasons:

#1 – The authors link building wealth to helping others

People who give… CAN build substantial wealth and ARE MORE LIKELY to do it in a sustainable and big way.

#2 – They lay out specific, out-of-the-box, real tools and tons of inspiring real-world examples for people interested in building their own businesses.

This book is not for everyone… but these take-away points are DEFINITELY for everyone:

#1 Our job is NOT to change or control others (sorry folks)

#2 We are NOT here to all act the same as one another

#3 We are NOT here to agree on the same rules and beliefs and laws

Therefore, it’s OK for us to act and think and believe differently from each other.  If we can release our judgement and negative emotions whenever we interact with people who think or act differently, we will be happier, calmer and less defensive.
