I made a quick trip to the local Sam’s Club this morning to see what they were currently offering for computers. As always, I decided to quickly scan the books before I left. One book practically called my name. For a minute I thought I was dyslexic. The title was printed backwards. But it practically called out to me… “Pick me up, look at my beauty inside, have a drink of my wisdom.”
It was sheer delight to spend this Saturday afternoon reading “Change The Way You See Everything Through Asset-Based Thinking”. It’s a delightful but deep, quick read co-authored by Kathryn D. Cramer and Hank Wasiak. The graphic design is exquisite. The powerful messages resonated with my purpose…to help people bring out the best in themselves.
The introduction message, in part, goes like this:
“People from all walks of life surpass their current levels of excellence and achievement just by shifting, ever so slightly, the way they see everything.
Just think what could be possible if people focused their attention on:
§ Opportunities rather than problems
§ Strengths more than weaknesses
§ What can be done instead of what can’t
When you decrease your focus on what is wrong, and increase your focus on what is right, you build enthusiasm and energy, strengthen relationships, and move people and productivity to the next level.”
It goes on to deliver powerful practices, lessons and stories about the value of embracing “Asset-Based Thinking”. This book is beautiful enough for your coffee table, and the teachings are brilliant enough to change your life. It’s something you’ll go back to again and again, and each time something new will resonate with you.
If you’ve been treading water for too long, and you’re ready to start swimming, this book will be one of your favorites. Don’t miss it!
