Hello friends. This week’s inspiration is from our very own Miss Brenda. Our small team here at the BSP firmly believes in the power of sharing our inspirations in the hopes that the strength of the sharing will create a positive force to be reckoned with. And who doesn’t love a positive force, right?
I am an avid reader, always looking to words to help me grow, change, adapt. However, this isn’t to say I only look to textbooks to inspire me to think critically. I admit it: I love a good story and The Go Giver certainly fits in that category. This book affected me in a deep way. It was not only entertaining but also presented a good lesson and gentle reminder about the power of giving. I read it in a single sitting, mostly because I felt something changing inside myself and I wanted that change to keep happening. Isn’t this the pinnacle of what we hope for when we read a book? The desire to keep reading it?
Through the story of one man’s struggle you are given the opportunity to expand your thinking of what is possible. You are encouraged to get clear on what you want and then take action by bringing value to other people without being concerned if they will reciprocate. In general you learn about the powerful laws of value, compensation, influence, authenticity and receptivity. These are the kinds of lessons that are timeless and revolutionary.
Since our theme this month is all about the gift of receiving, the timing of my reading this could not be more perfect. This would be a great present for a friend, family member or co-worker. And an even better present to give to yourself.
