Find your Awesome
This book Start by Jon Acuff is about punching fear in the face and finding your awesome.
It begins with a story about a woman he met on a plane. They were chatting about life and things, and she asked him “what do you do when all the excuses you used to not chase your dreams are gone? What do you do then?
At the time the author did not have an answer. This book is about just that. How many of us have dreams that we somehow never get around to working on? How many times have we avoided the work, talked ourselves out of doing what it takes, or got started and realized there were no shortcuts to our magnificent end we had planned for ourselves then we gave up?
Well if you have done any of those things and more this book is for you. If you have a dream, a desire, if you want to do work that matters and go from average to awesome, read this book.
It begins with looking at how in our 20’s we are learning about life and ourselves. At 30 we are editing, refining who we are and what we want to bring to our lives. Eliminating what doesn’t work and bringing more of what we want into our life. Forty brings mastering those things we love the most about love and life. Fifty is for harvesting and 60’s for guiding.
We no longer live or retire in the same fashion our parents or grandparents did. The working world has evolved, and many of us start our dream paths later in life. Different opportunities are available to us now that did not exist then and we must learn to think in a fashion that allows us to use the tools we have now to achieve what we desire.
