I opened this post from Copyblogger this morning in my in-box and started reading and I thought, “Wow, I was just thinking about this the other day!” How, compared to so many in other parts of the world, we are fabulously wealthy. We all need a reminder once in a while!
“Because we live in so much prosperity, our magnificent wealth becomes invisible to us. We think we’ll feel rich when we get the right car, or the right handbag, or can shop at Whole Foods without wincing at the total. Talk to the people who have the car or the handbag. They don’t feel rich. That kind of progress is like chasing the horizon. You won’t get there no matter how fast you run.” Sonia Simone
Right now you too can feel your wealth by buying the kindle edition of End Malaria and you can save the lives of two people because a pair of mosquito nets is what they need!
I bought it instantly, I don’t have a Kindle but you can download a version of Kindle for your computer so I did that for my Mac. I didn’t even realize at the time that the reason this book is worth many times over $20 is because its filled with short essays on focus, courage, resilience, by America’s favourite business authors.
For example: In Jon Acuff’s essay on Dream Backward to Move Forward he writes, “We think we should be asking forward questions like ‘What do I want to do with my life’ instead of dreaming backward and asking, ‘What have I done in my life that I loved!’ And the answer we get is not a bottomless, faceless list of that could apply to anyone. It’s a personal, small handful of life experiences that were uniquely tailored to our hearts and our souls and that made us feel alive.”
