I really glad I bought this book and took the time to read it. I was able to take away some really good nuggets that I know will help me as I continue to grow my business. If you are on the fence about purchasing this book “it seems only fitting to leave you with an urgent message that I borrow from one of the great advertising slogans of all time: Just Do It.”

The way Charlamagne put himself out there for all to see in this book was impressive. The good, the bad, and the flat out ugly. 😅 I truly believe when more people begin to humanize themselves as Charlamagne did in this book it will open a door for growth from one’s mistakes versus one feeling like a failure due to mistakes one has made along the way.

My love for dogs may have very well budded and blossomed many moons ago from the readings of "Where the Red Fern Grows". Great story of a boy's (Billy) love for his dogs and the dog's (Old Dan and Little Ann) love and protection for their friend.

This book was so good to me that I sat and read it in its entirety on a Sunday afternoon. Quite a bit to consider in learning my Love Language and how to love someone in their Love Language.

At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

This book utilizes the word "Introvert" but speaks to and opened my eyes to so many more categories one can ultimately fall into. Whatever category one falls into (e.g. shy extrovert, anxious introvert, calm extrovert, etc.) it's my belief that it is important to embrace the strengths that are naturally you while also taking on the challenge to stretch ourselves in other areas to become the best you we can become as we maneuver through life.

I never figured "If-Then" (if you do this, then you will get that) often isn't the best approach in motivating someone to do something longterm which is based off scientific studies. This for me was eye-opening. The better approach is to challenge one into engagement.

Aim to concern yourself less with the external rewards an activity brings (Type X Behavior) and more with the inherent satisfaction of an activity itself (Type I Behavior).

Autonomy
-The desire to direct our own lives.
Mastery
-The urge to get better and better at something that matters.
Purpose
-The yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.

The enemy wants us to feel rejected, left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love. In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection - from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

This book jumped out at me on Amazon as I wade through a very difficult time in my life. I was so drawn to the "Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, And Lonely" that it wasn't until around chapter three that it finally clicked that this is a book geared towards women. 😳 I didn't let that stop me from reading on. I wholeheartedly believe God directed me towards this book, and even though I am a man I can say that this is one of the best books I have ever picked up. Thank you Lysa for opening up to us and reminding me that God is good, God is good to me, and God is good at being God.

Modern life can seem like being lost in a jungle. With distractions and dangers emerging from every direction, it's easy to lose focus. Over time, we lose touch with one of our most powerful, purposeful, God-given attributes - the desire to be fruitful and multiply, what Bishop T. D. Jakes calls our "instinct for increase". Combining historical, cultural, and personal examples with biblical insights, in Instinct Bishop Jakes outlines how to rediscover your natural aptitudes and reclaim the wisdom of your past experiences.

We each have a destiny. Finding the courage to drive past the challenges, the pains, and even the shortcuts of life to the deeper purpose of living is to thrive in one's divine destiny. Most people have sensed destiny pulling them to just the right place or person. Whether it is the spouse you meet, the children you bear, or the promotion you receive, everyone has a purpose to pursue. Sometimes it is understanding our destiny that helps us accept what on the surface appears to be failure.
