I have been reading an average of two business development or personal development books since starting my business in mid-September. That’s a lot of books! Many of them resonated right off the mark and some of them fell pathetically flat. The books that I have found myself returning to, time and time again, are the books by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Easy reads in terms of the number of pages, but powerful lessons to be learned!
“Life leaves a mark. None of us passes through the experience of our days unblemished or pristine. We all suffer tragedies and dissapointments, struggles and failures. Losses great and small, and every one of them hurts.
We can try to cover it up, although if we do, we just tend to grow bitter on the inside. Or, we can embrace who we are – that is, who we are in the process of becoming. Embrace the hurt and it deepens you, makes you a richer person. Deny, reject, hold it at bay, fight it off, and it simply hardens you.
Character is how you choose to respond to what life throws at you. You can lead only as far as you grow. And you will grow only as far as you let yourself. Character is what happens when life scratches itself onto your soul.”
