Reviews and What Readers Say
“ Uplifting and excellent reminder about life. This book is full of excellent quotes and movie metaphors that reiterate the important messages throughout such as "courage over fear" and "don't live an unlived life." But even more important, I think, it talks of the impact of kindnesses on others, what truly defines success, rules for living, what doing a great job means and how ~ with love, compassion and gratitude ~ all will be right with the world. One of my favorite quotes in the book is "We are spiritual beings that have come to explore life experientially. Our goal in the process is to grow to become more God-like, that is more aligned with our true spiritual selves even though every possible road block is thrown in our way and every possible excuse to abandon the path laid before us. To recognize the God-ness in ourselves and in each other and to bring out that God-ness in each other is the answer and the light." The book is uplifting and an excellent reminder that "we are enough" and so much more. ”

" A surprise gift in the mail, and I wasn't sure when I would read it. (The author a college friend from long ago.) However, I am saturated from self-help and planned on putting it aside. So happy I didn't! A charming, uplifting 138-page encouragement that I needed.The style very easy, conversational and intimate.reminder of gathered wisdom, powerful because of the authenticity and openness. I really enjoyed the perspective on money, a refreshing take from someone whose business is investments.The personal stories, and music, movie, cultural references tied together principles that we've heard before but in a fresh way about living a life thst matters. What I found inspiring is that it felt doable,. I didn't need to stand on my head, and incorporate a list of activities to reach self- improvement; recognized I was doing better than I thought. Just lovely!" ―Teresa M Campbell
" Packed with quality information from start to finish! The best I've read on self help and motivation in a long, long, time. Completely sincere and authentic. You won't want to put it down; but you will NEED to to think about the wisdom inside. In this day and age of "pop psychology" for me this book was an absolute breath of fresh air. It finds a way to give practical down to earth advice and yet bridges the gap to help us realize a greater good. Absolutely loved it. It's one of the few books that will stay on my night stand!”
