I want to tell you about a book that a friend of mine wrote and it’s not the normal book that you would expect to see or read – she wrote this for her son that took his life on January 16, 2007. Daniel wanted everyone to know not to waste your opportunity to live – he want you to choose to live.
When I first saw this video, I have to say that it gave me goose bumps listening to his story and why he wanted this book to be written – and I have to say that when I downloaded I just kept reading and reading. Any of you know me – reading puts me to sleep but not this one.
The lessons in this story are just awesome and I hope that everyone gets a chance to read this book. If you want to learn about the real you – you have to read this book. I love the part when he speaks of taking your mind off what you are lacking and focus on what you have – so many people that I meet in life that is really they all know how to do – whine about what they don’t have instead of looking at what they do.
Another thing that I love was when he said that everyone is on this planet for a reason, find yours. You know that really made me think that it took me 50 some years to find my reason and it’s helping others – I feel so blessed that I have that opportunity, what is your reason? Did you find it yet?
You are also going to learn how to eat an elephant – that was just a great analogy and so true. Are you trying to save the save the world, then you need to read this book. Do you pay attention to how you breathe, then you need to read this book. That chapter was an eye-opener.
