Monday Book Review-Ish

ish.book.jpg

This is little book was so profound! Here are the 6 lessons that I learned:

1.Do you have a hobby you like to do?? Ramon loved to draw.  See what skill you enjoy doing and it brings you joy.

2. Do you “buckle” when someone dislikes what you are doing??  It’s not easy to take a hit from someone when you feel like you are doing your best. We can’t allow anyone to derail us from our goals.

3.People are watching you. As you go about day to day, you would be surprised who is looking at what you are doing. People that you would not except to support you, are many times wishing you well.

4. Your trash is another person’s treasure.  We might see the value in everything that we are doing.  Be willing to take a compliment.  Look for the good in yourself and others.

5. Ishly allows your ideals to flow freely.   When you stop worrying about things being perfect you can relax and be creative.

6. Some things can’t be captured, simply savored.  Guess what you might not always win.  You might not end up on top.  We must know that the answer can be YES or LEARN.  

Awesome thought provoking book to challenge you, go get: ISH

Movie Review-Hidden Figures

hidden-figures-poster

This movie was AMAZING!  Here are the 6 lessons I gained from the movie:

  1. The right position has privileges.Many times we have great privileges that we receive because of the position we hold.
  2. We are living the impossible.  Do you believe we are living the impossible?  If you truly believe that you can–it’s all a matter of belief.
  3. The work you do matters.  It is so easy to think that what you do has no weight, but imagine the world without your contribution.
  4. Everyone will not appreciate your gift.  We might encounter people who don’t believe in us or what we have the power to do.  It is our job to BELIEVE in ourselves.
  5. Numbers don’t lie.  Numbers are an abosulute science.  I love when there is not other answer to the question 4+4 will always = 8.
  6. Who ever gets there first calls the rules.  When you look at new things, the first person who started it usually is the leader that everyone follows.

Monday Book Review-Oh, The Place You’ll Go!

oh-the-places-youll-go

This book was written by Dr. Seuss for children, but the lessons are priceless.  Here are the 6 lessons I received:

  1. Life is full of choices.  During our life will encounter a number of options and we must make a choice.
  2. You will see some great things.  In every area in life, you need to keep our eyes on the good things that happen in our life.
  3. You will make some bad decisions.  Sometime we need to start over and we might get off track.  Everyone makes a bad decision from time to time.
  4. There is FUN to be done.  Many times we don’t take the time to see the Fun that is available for us.  See the FUN everyday.
  5. Sometimes you must go alone.  I know that in every stage of our life, we need some alone time.  God does his best work when we are alone and he has our captive attention.
  6. Life is a GREAT Balancing Act. We will have HIGHS and we will have LOWS.  We must realize that nothing stays the same.  We have to be willing to learn as we go up and we go down.  Hopefully our life will be a GREAT Balancing ACT!

Monday Book Review-Ladies Living Life Forward

ladyd-book4-500x500

I had the pleasure of purchasing this book when it was released but I had not reviewed it until today. Here are the 6 lesson I got from the book:

  1. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  This scripture is so apparent in the life of Lady D.  She is a passionate Christian woman, she truly desires that everyone believes that they CAN do all things only with Christ.  I love her commitment to the promises of God.
  2. Forgiveness is needed.  In order to live the life that God has for you, you must rid any anger or ill will to anyone.  She truly broke down why forgiveness is needed in our lives and how you can receive the benefits God has promised you.
  3. Renew your mind.  If you want to make a change in your life, start with your mind. God allows us free will but many times we don’t monitor what goes in our mind.  It is our job to keep the GARBAGE out of our mind. Lady D shares the blessing in memorizing the scriptures.  Scriptures are just like weapons we can use when Satan is attacking us.  When we start to speak those scriptures from our memory, the Devil can’t do anything but leave us alone.
  4. Take control of your personal economy. Our jobs many times are taken for granted and we don’t see God’s favor of having the job.  Lady D stressed the need to save and take some steps to save money and do what we can to improve our finances.
  5. Encourage yourself.  Not many people feel comfortable talking about their greatness.  If more people realized that God gave you the greatness because YOU are the Apple of His Eye.  Spend time finding out what is good about you.  What do people love about you??  God gave you that skill or gift.  Don’t take God’s gift for granted.
  6. The Word of God can change your life.  After all of the issues that people experience that is always an answer by the Father.  Lady D encourages us to seek the scriptures for our answers.  If you BELIEVE God created it all, there is nothing he can’t solve.  The problem occurs when we don’t know his word and his promises.  Life will always have ups and downs but with God the downs can be occur while you are in HIS hands.

Movie Review-Fences

fences

This movie was very good.  Here are the 6 lessons I learned:

  1. A lot of people think they can’t do better.  With the history of poverty in this country there is a huge problem with the poverty mindset. It is very difficult to change a person’s belief about themselves without their help.
  2. Times have changed.  Although the world is not perfect, it is much better than it was in the past.
  3. Death a fast ball on the outside corner.  No one knows when their end will be but some people know it is close for them.  That is way it is so important to treat each day as your last.
  4. You need people to do right by you.  If you find that people are miss treating you, understand that everyone will not do right by you.  It is just a fact of life.
  5. Fences can keep people out and it can also keep people inside.  People choose to stay inside of the fences and we pray that the fences will keep out those who want to harm us.
  6. You have to take the crooked with the straight.  I wish every ball that comes our way would be a straight ball but life has a series of crooked things wrong in it. You must be ready for any ball that comes your way.

Monday Book Review-Raving Fans

raving-fan

This book teaches you how to develop a group of people who would never think of going anywhere else but where you provide goods and services.  They are called Raving Fans! 

Here are the 6 lessons I received from reading this book:

  1. In life everyone has a choice of who they patronize.  Most people take for granted the relationship that people give to their money and how they spend it.  I think times are changing and people are more aware of where their money goes.  Personally I am trying very hard to shop at stores that stand for something and have good outreach programs to the community. I want to find doctors and service providers that know me and I am not just a number to them.  It does not matter if you spend 100 dollars or 100 million dollars per year, your money has value and you give to those who you believe should have it.
  2. Find out what you want.  When you go into business, decide what do you expect from staff, customers and even yourself.  Many times people don’t spend the time thinking about the feel of their business. I suggest you know what a person will experience when they use your services because your reputation will go ahead of you.
  3. Be human and admit if you make mistakes.  Sometimes you might not always get things right, take some time to find out how things when wrong and what you can do to make things better.
  4. Find out what the customers want.  It is so good to ask people from time to time, how you are doing in their opinion.  How can I make things better??  What makes you come to my store??  
  5. Be ready to deal with the answers.  Many times people will not give you the whole truth.  Tell people that you want to know their good and bad experiences.
  6. Deliver plus one.  When people tell you want that want give them that plus one.  Go above and beyond their desired results.  Always WOW people with your little extras.

Friday Movie Review-Collateral Beauty

Collateral_Beauty_poster.png

This movie was so good that I saw it 3 times in the last 2 weeks.  I love stories that touch your heart.  Here are the 6 lessons that I learned from the movie:

  1. The co-star stated 1/2 of the billings were built of his relationships.  Business is done based upon the relationships.  So many people offer so many things that the only way to conduct business is how you feel about someone.  This is true in every business from birth to death.
  2. Death can make you feel that life is not worth living.  No parent wants to bury their child.  During the time of grief, people can respond in a number of ways.  Sometimes it takes years to regain the day to day routine.  When my son died, I was numb for over 1 year.  I could not get the strength to believe in children again.  It was the most difficult time in my life.
  3. Time waits for you know.  You can’t control it.  It is truly a gift and we must be thankful for everyday that we get. Many people take time for granted. We always wish for more, but what if you decide today to think about living as though you will not get any more after today.  That would force you to work today like was your last.  It would force you to love to today like it was your last.  It would help you see time is not under your rule. 
  4. Love is the fabric of life.  We can’t choose who we love or who loves us.  Just be open to receive it.  Don’t push people out of your life if they love you, just love them back. You can change your life with a little LOVE.
  5. If you knew you were dying, would you tell anyone??  If your answer is no, that is not fair.  Give people a chance to say goodbye.  That is the right way to die.
  6. Collateral Beauty is all around us, we must open our eyes to see it. The older people will tell you when God takes something or someone he replaces it with something or someone else.  I my case I did not know 2 beautiful children would arrive after Adrian died.  I was able to move pass the grief and see the collateral beauty.  My prayer is you will always see the collateral beauty.
