Books that have inspired me

Hi Everyone

Hope you are having a wonderful day.  If you are not then some of these books might help you.

Today I am going to keep it simple and talk about some books that I have really enjoyed.

The first is about New Zealand guy called Jason Barrell.  The book is called Try, Try Again. Written with the help of Elaine Weber McGough

Jason grew up in Northland, struggled through school with dyslexia, ran a successful business with his wife, became a professional Rugby Player in the Super 12 and then got a broken neck.

When the broken neck ended his rugby career, he went on to become a policeman. Unfortunately tragedy struck again and a series of strokes forced him to undergo a life threatening operation that left him semi-paralysed, brain injured and unable to work. He was only 32.

This book tells of his recovery from this to become one of New Zealand’s most successful motivational speakers.

I was lucky enough to be at a conference to hear him speak.  Hearing his story from the man himself is amazing.  He is so strong.

The next book I want to talk about is:

Excuse me, your life is waiting – The astonishing power of Positive Feelings – Lynn Grabhorn

The back cover says that this book finally clarifies why most of our dreams have never materialised, why we have lived with all too empty bank accounts, tough relationships, failing health, and spiritually unfulfilling lives.

This book is all  about the Physics of thought and it teaches you how to turn your thoughts around.

Reading I learned all sorts of things which I probably do automatically now.  And I pass this book onto others to read if they think they are going no where.

The third book I want to share with you today “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch

This became very popular in the mid to late 2000’s.  It is the book written for a lecture series which was called the last lecture and was a chance for famous speakers to imagine what would be said if there was their last lecture.

At the time Randy had only just been told that the prostate cancer he had was terminal so he wrote the most amazing lecture aimed at his children knowing what he thought of them and giving them all kinds of advice.

I love inspirational books.  They make you see that against all adversity you can succeed.
