- Very good book by Ramona on 7/28/2015
This was a very interesting read and there were many things I tagged as I read this book. Ms. Trimm compares us to diamonds and the comparison is wonderful.
Some of my favorite things from this book are below:
1. “You don’t know the stuff you are made of until you meet with a challenge.” P. 59
2. “Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.” P. 65
3. “The line has to be drawn, and you must decide on which side you will live—whether you will live an empowered life or an impotent life. I believe that we all have power but many of us give it away to things, circumstances, and people, claiming we have no control over our own choices, because somehow ‘life just happens.’ However, as Viktor Frankl suggested in his classic book Man’s Search for Meaning, forces beyond our control can take away everything we possess except one thing, our freedom to choose how we will respond.” P. 76.
4. “You must resist the temptation to give up because others do not believe in who you are or in your capabilities.” P. 121
5. “Live your life out loud. Never be bullied into silence or pressured into being a nonentity. Never allow yourself to be made a victim of someone else’s insecurities. Accept no one else’s proclamations or predictions of doom and failure.” P. 123
If you are looking for some enlightenment in your life and some assurance you are a somebody, this would be a great book for you to read.
