    EXCELLENT

    I love this book! I finished reading it about 2 months ago and I keep it with me in my purse at all times. I have found many occassions where I was able to resort back to the book to either encourage myself or someone else. I love how he takes motivational quotes and bases them off of scripture. All nuggets are short reads, maybe a page to a page in a half long. Example: 'Look at things not as they are, but as they can be. Vision adds value to everything. Life can be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. Keep your eye on the road, and use your rear view mirror only to avoid trouble.'
