I also enjoy audio books because it’s still entertaining and I can work on my to-do list while listening to it. Brian and I just started listening to the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.
This is my very first self-help book and so far, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. I find myself inspired to learn and it motivates me to be a better person. The book is intriguing because it “ignores the trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity.” To sum it up:
I think sometimes we get so caught up with “everything” in our busy world then, we get to a point when “everything” seem to be so mundane. We lose our motivation and we start to ask ourselves, “What’s the point?” or we even start comparing ourselves to others. Here’s a quote by Mr. Theodore Roosevelt that is so simple yet so powerful to me:
Everyone has their own story, their own pace and their own direction. Some might find themselves still in school while everybody else has graduated already. Some might still be single while everybody else on Facebook is either engaged or married to their true love. Everyone also has their own definition of success. You might consider getting your Masters degree or excelling in your career as a sign of success. While others might consider having a family or being a mom as their calling in life. All I know is, There is no one way to this journey we call life. As long as you’re doing your best and have the desire to reach your highest potential, then I think you’re doing mighty fine, my friend.
