Sometimes You Need to Lose to Win


                Would you fail your way to success or remain a failure? There are so many people who fail at reaching success and that’s fine, but what’s not fine is if you don’t get up and keep moving forward. You Are Awesome by Neil Pasricha is filled with life-related stories, tips when hardship approaches, and secrets that Neil learned throughout his life. 

                Everyone hits rock bottom at some point in our lives, but what happens if we get stuck? Neil explains that nothing is over until you give up on it. Also, it is okay not to be perfect. All the mistakes that we experience are setting us up for our future. We must remember that we have the power of choice and we can decide for ourselves. Next, we have the power to re-write our past stories and change them to become new ones, because we’ve already gone through them and know what to avoid. Sometimes it’s okay to lose and fail, cause at the end of failure and loss is only success and winning.

                My favorite part in the book is the Self-Practice sections. In these sections, Neil teaches us how to apply and practice the lesson that he explained in that chapter. I love this kind of stuff, I feel that it’s not only knowledge we are receiving, but instructions on how to use it. Overall, I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars, because I believe many readers (Including me) can relate to the things Neil’s gone through and experience. 
                

                 No matter how tough life can get, always remember you have a choice. Your mistakes are just steps to your successful future and it’s okay to lose sometimes. Hope you all enjoy my review of You Are Awesome by Neil Pasricha, thank you.

Synopsis From The Book

From Neil Pasricha—New York Times, million-copy bestselling author of The Book of Awesome series and The Happiness Equation, thought leader for the next generation, and one of the most popular TED speakers in the world—comes a revelatory and inspiring book that will change the way we view failure and help us build resilience.

Why is life getting harder instead of easier?
How do I get back up after life knocks me down?
And how do I grow stronger and live more intentionally?

These are just some of the big life questions Neil tackles in his motivating new book You Are Awesome. And Neil knows what he’s talking about—he’s dealt with many failures and flops throughout his life and, in addition to sharing these intimacies, he also offers simple, research-backed models we can all use to get back up and stay on track.

Resilience is a skill in desperately short supply today. One side effect of living in our era of abundance is that we no longer have the tools to handle failure or even perceived failure. We are turning into an army of porcelain dolls. We no longer bend, we break. When we spill, we splatter. When we crack, we shatter. The New York Times reports that nearly two thirds of college students report “overwhelming anxiety.” Cell phones show us we’re never good enough. And what about rates of depression, loneliness, and suicide? All rising!

The world is ready for Neil’s new approach to resilience in the form of nine accessible, story-based, science-backed secrets that will help you live stronger and with intention. By taking this journey with Neil as your guide, you’ll learn how to navigate failure, how to positively reframe your own perceptions, and ultimately, how to become your most unbreakable, powerful and awesome self.

Written in Pasricha’s trademark high-energy, takeaway-laden awesome style, this book is for everyone—including fresh grads walking into their first jobs, anyone processing a breakup, people whose industries or careers are quickly getting disrupted, parents wanting to help children be mentally tougher, children wanting to help parents be mentally tougher, and millennials looking for a flashlight to help illuminate the dark path of adulthood.

This book is for anyone who needs to be reminded that every problem is an opportunity, that every dead end has a hidden door, and that every step back is ultimately a step forward.

Pssst…. This book is also a little reminder that YOU ARE AWESOME.

The thought of losing your child can be horrifying, but how do you cope with it when it does happen? Journey to Healing by Lisa K.

Lisa lost her only daughter Katie in a car accident at the age of 17, shock in trauma Lisa knew she had to move on in life without Katie. She shares her experience of how to accept pain and sorrow by living a life that will honor her daughter.

The Spy Novel That Made Me Cried

Spy a Novel by Danielle Steel
Book Review by Eddy (Read Time 1 min)


This book deserves to be 2019’s best book of the year. Spy by Danielle Steel is such a well written, detailed, and page-turner novel. It’s about a young woman named Alexandra Wickham who volunteer to serve in World War 2, she was given the choice to become a spy and forever change her life. The book is filled with action-pack adventure, humor, romance, and is especially a super tearjerker. Get ready for one heck of a read and have tissues at the side.
Danielle portrays Alexandra as a well-rounded character. She is a brave, determined, clever, charming, and talented woman. She shows no fear when taking up new challenges and yet she’s such a sweetheart. This book is easy to read and understand. After finishing the book, I feel a sense of sadness of why the book had to end so fast and it didn’t feel like I was reading at all. Every sentence and paragraph played like a movie in my head and it was hard to put the book down.…

Live in The Moment

Practicing the Present
The Neglected Art of Living in the New
By John Koessler
“Practicing the present does not ignore the future or the past. But it does view both with a measure of sanctified skepticism”

           Practicing the Present by John Koessler is more than a book that contains instructional guides on how to practice the present, it brings the reader closer to the presence of God. Within each chapter, John gives specific stories or references from other sources that tie into the lesson he’s teaching. You’ll be learning so many different aspects of practicing the present such as, common gestures can go a long way, becoming aware of mundane spaces in our life’s, leading between the past and future, and so many more.

Pacing of the book is expository, because John is imparting valuable information and guides to the readers. The stories that tie to the lessons are great, they are short and sweet. The writing style of the book is easy to comprehend and there are multiple concepts t…
