WHAT DREW ME TO THIS BOOK?
The illustration of a kitty cat looking into the mirror with a lion looking back at him caught my attention as well as the title of the book.
The book, I’M TIRED OF BEING ORDINARY, ARE YOU? is a 52 week advice on being extraordinary written by WM. ALLEN. It’s an entertaining, humorous book of advice with quotes and film references. We all want to be extraordinary and we also want to reach our full potential.
Do you dream about being extraordinary but think your status as a merely ordinary person is etched in stone? The truth is that it is never too late to change your life. The key is determination—-guided by a little sage advice from another “ordinary” individual in pursuit of an amazing life.
I’m Tired of Being Ordinary, Are You? is an entertaining and empowering guide that will change your life in one year–if you let it. Comprised of fifty-two steps that will lead you to the life you imagined (but deemed impossible), each weekly lesson begins with a joke and ends with a movie suggestion to keep you laughing and inspired as you undertake the difficult journey that lies ahead.
Wake up to your potential, and put your dreams into action. Remember: this is your life–why not discover just how incredible it can be?
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK:
There was a lot I liked about this book. It was entertaining, it had jokes and movie references that you could laugh at. Also, I liked the fact it was divided into 52 weeks or 1 year. Everybody’s life is a journey, this book just helps you with your journey and reach your potential. Love the title and the illustration of the kitten looking in the mirror with a lion looking back. In my opinion, this could be interpreted as kitten just being ordinary but when the kitten becomes extraordinary the kitten sees the lion in the mirror.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:
This book was well written and the illustration on the front cover was well done. I can’t think of anything at this time that I didn’t like.
WHERE THIS BOOK CAN BE BOUGHT:
Wm. Allen’s book is available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Books – A – Million.
Wm. Allen’s blog is Harmony Books & Films, LLC . This is a great blog. I just love reading his posts/articles.
Today is Day 11 of my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course. Today I’m to make a prompt personal. How I do this is going to The Daily Post and see what the Daily prompt is and if it doesn’t move me, I’m to try another. I’m also to give a link to the prompt so that others can find my post on the prompt page.
Today The Daily Prompt Is: Overcome so that is what my post is about:
Overcoming something personal is never easy to do but it is well worth it in the end because what you’re striving to overcome you will eventually see the light at the end of the tunnel and when you do, it will be one happy day for you when you finally overcome your troubles.
When I was in Elementary School, is when I had to start overcoming my troubles. You see, I was picked on and/or bullied the whole way through Elementary School and High School and then after High School graduation, I got told by a counselor that I would never go to college. Not a good feeling.
But in the end, everything turned out for the best. My parents and grandparents supported me and I started out at a community college and graduated from there then transferred up to a 4 year college and graduated from there. Although, I had one professor think that the best thing for me would be to drop his class. When I stuck it out and passed his class he took me aside and told me he was glad I stuck his class out and that he was happy for me.
When I graduated, I was very happy because I had something no one could take from me-a degree. Also I was happy because I did something that I was told I would never do.
The End Result:
The end result was me not ending up with one degree but two degrees. I had overcome being picked on and bullied in school as well as being told I couldn’t do something. Overcoming this wasn’t easy but with support from my family I eventually overcame everything.
Everyone has something they need to overcome so don’t think you are alone because you’re not. With support you’ll eventually overcome your problems. Some problems are harder to overcome than others so they will take longer to resolve. Once again if you have support you’ll find out it’s easier to face.
Links To The Daily Post:
Today is Day 10 and I’m learning how to build a better blogroll. You can do this 2 ways. A blogroll can be built with the Blog I Follow Widget or you can use the text widget. I decided to use both.
4 more days to go and my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course will be finished. It’s hard to believe that it’s gone so fast.
Until my next update, happy blogging everyone.
Sunrises and sunsets are absolutely beautiful. My trail camera caught some beautiful pictures of sunrises and sunsets. Sometimes you can find Deer, Turkey and sometimes other animals either early in the morning or in the evening.
I thought I would put together some of my favorite pictures of sunrises and sunsets we get here in Pennsylvania. A PINK SUNRISE and a A LITTLE FAWN AT SUNSET are two of my favorites. I have a lot of favorite pictures. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I can’t wait to see what your favorite pictures are.
