What Did I Think/Recommendation
I enjoyed this book a lot! It was a very quick and easy read. Although there wasn’t anything in there that I hadn’t already heard or read before, it never hurts to reinforce positivity and inspiring ideas. I really enjoyed the way the information was presented. It was presented as a story rather than just listing the 10 steps, and that held my interest more than typical self-help books do. I would read this again, and I would definitely recommend this book to others who enjoy reading books about positivity and personal growth, especially those in a leadership position.
A few quotes I enjoyed:
“First decide what you want. Then you can start creating it. Don’t let the world create you. You create your world.” – p.31
“If you build it in your mind, focus on seeing it, and take action, the success will come.” -p.44
“Invite people on your bus and share your vision for the road ahead.”
