I’m grateful for wonderful books. I came across this one, Everyday Greatness, (Stephen R Covey, David K Hatch) at the library last week when Ethan was stocking up. It has heaps of great quotes, and some short stories that are incredibly inspiring. I learned more about Abraham Lincoln’s early days, in the chapter titled Humility. His attitude in the face of opposition and outright scorn was amazing.
I don’t have time to read the whole book now, as mine’s getting ready for printing, but taking breaks from the computer I’ve walked around reading a few quotes here and there.
After speaking with Pam Hardgrave from Lillydale, QLD, who is one of the inspiring entrepreneurs in my new book, I found this quote – relevant to Pam who has a great sense of humour, even in challenging times.
“If you’re going to be able to look back on something and laugh about it, you might as well laugh about it now. – Marie Osmond
I have another great book called the pocket book of positives, which my dear friend Sandra Groom gave me last year when she visited us. It’s useful to have a book like these within reach for when you want a break from the detail of editing, or are doing anything else that drains your energy.
Cheering you on,
