Your Road to Awesome: Saturday Inspirational Books

The power of inspiration to move us…to get us up off our fanny and into action…into doing and being…is transformative. Inspiration is about ideas and thoughts that move something with us which brings about a desire to change ourselves. Self driven change is really the only change that matters…the only way change moves through us from the inside out. Below is a video…a book trailer for a new book: Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters by Jon Acuff, it’s short and packs a punch. Wouldn’t you like to do the work that matters? Then it’s time you too punched fear in the face. Enjoy the video:

Quotes about Books and Reading:

“What reading does, ultimately, is keep alive the dangerous and exhilarating idea that a life is not a sequence of lived moments, but a destiny…the time of reading, the time defined by the author’s language resonating in the self, is not the world’s time, but the soul’s. The energies that otherwise tend to stream outward through a thousand channels of distraction are marshaled by the cadences of the prose; they are brought into focus by the fact that it is an ulterior, and entirely new, world that the reader has entered. The free-floating self–the self we diffusely commune with while driving or walking or puttering in the kitchen–is enlisted in the work of bringing the narrative to life. In the process, we are able to shake off the habitual burden of insufficient meaning and flex our deeper natures.”
