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

Book Review-Pure Deception

pure-deception

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

  1. Your dreams can be derailed.  Amanda thought she had it “ALL”.  She had the man of her dreams-an accomplished Oncologist, a handsome son and a house many would long to occupy.  Amanda would not ever imagine that her life would go from “DREAM” to “NIGHTMARE” after years of marriage. In a blink of an eye, Amanda was living a nightmare that she had not prepared for and her future looked bleak.
  2. You never really know if your spouse has a double life.  During Amanda’s reflection times, she started to put the pieces together. Humans live by routine, when it’s broken–Somethings UP!!!  My best marriage advice has always been: Keep your door open.  Translated to mean if you want to GO-GO and if you want to STAY-STAY but communication will be REQUIRED either way.  Everyone has a “DON”T CROSS THIS LINE MARK”, you must KNOW this is you want your relationship to last.
  3. There are 3 type of friends. 1. Those who helped you in difficult times; 2. Those who left you in difficult times; 3. Those who put you in difficult times.  WOW- this statement rings true in just about every situation that you encounter.  The best lesson is some people don’t need to be in your life.  When they show what type of friend they are–learn from that and never expect anything different from them. When you find yourself in a difficult time, pay close attention to how your friends react.  Are they with you offering to help you? Or are they somewhere talking about you?
  4. Some people don’t play fair.  When we find ourselves in challenging times we realize that some people will do anything to win.  Dr. Casey was determined to play dirty.  The best strategy to use when faced with this is EXPECT the UNEXPECTED.  When you are ready for anything to happen, you put yourself in a better place to brace the storm that is coming your way.
  5. When you start lying, it’s hard to find the a way to stop. Dr. Casey had so many issues going on that it was a miracle that he could remember.  It’s during these times of speaking so many lies that people get careless and something is bound to be forgotten.  It is so easy to just TELL THE TRUTH!
  6. Words have POWER! Whether you believe in speaking things into existence or not, many times those things you speak, you see!  When you read the book, you will realize the statement that Amanda spoke several times and results she manifests.

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!

If you want to be blessed get this book: OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!

Share Your Story-Include the Pain

share.story

One of the best things about writing a book, is the ability to share your story with others. What is even better is when you have the courage to share your pain. Many times what we hid from others is the very thing that can help us stand out from the crowd.  For over 20 years, I never shared the story of my special needs son that passed away.  Many people knew I had a love for the special needs population but they did not know why.  When I shared the story of pain, I began to connect on a deeper level of people.  I began to see my story as a way to help other people.  As a result of sharing the story, many people gained strength and I was able to use my pain to help others.  Sharing my story gave me another business because it helped fine tune my business-Sheryl Jones-Queen of Hearts.  I have been able to help corporate women identify the life the would love to have and make a plan to obtain that life.  That gives me great joy to help others begin to fall in LOVE with the LIFE they are living.  Please SHARE YOUR STORY-INCLUDE THE PAIN!
