The Serenity Prayer - A Challenge

, , , , , ,
Did you ever wonder where the Serenity Prayer came from or what the intention was when it was written?  I googled and found this on a website  http://www.thevoiceforlove.com/serenity-prayer.html  and I have reposted, as follows: Serenity…

Foster Bold Dreams, Bolder Actions

, , , , ,
I've been reading The Everyday Entrepreneur written by Rob Basso.  Chapter 5 was one in which I found myself reflecting on things I have been working on or thinking about, and wanted to share. The chapter started off with pensive statements…

Think and Grow Rich - by Napoleon Hill

, , , ,
This was a most amazing book. Andrew Carnie, of steel manufacturing fame, charged Napoleon Hill with writing this book. It was written in 1937, took 28 years to complete the research, and was the summary (I guess that's a good word) of the…

Happiness for Dummies: Hardiness (Chapter 6)

, , , , , ,
Don't know if you have had the time to join in / read the book discussion re: The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, but I'm up to page 65.  Here's what I'm thinking about so far. . . There are a lot of thought provoking statements in the pages…

The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle

, , , , ,
I started reading The Power of Now yesterday.  I'm only up to page 14, and have seen some promise in this book as part of my journey of discovery.  Bare with me -- I have to ramble on a bit to explain things, and I'll get back to the reason…
