Love is the most valuable gift that can be given he writes, and quickly adds, that it cannot be given by someone who doesn't possess it. Love is an emotion. When we feel it inside, we have something to give. Giving love away is done by successful people regardless of the crowd he notes because, "their own self-worth is stronger than the rejection or acceptance of their ideas by others."
That's a small sampling of the delicious intellectual meal awaiting you in this extremely motivational book. It will fill your mind with the kind of input that will work itself out in desired accomplishments.
Best of all, it is Waitleys signiture material, not somebodyelses material presented in a different way. In Seeds of Greatness, you will learn the 10 best kept secrets to total success.
This one is a gem. Get it and use it. Great stuff.
For example, Waitley actually spoke with the man who interviewed billionaire Mr. Hunt, and Waitley met a woman born with polio who went on to win Olympic gold. Moreover, Waitley listened to cassettes of oft-quoted coach Vince Lombardi, who reportedly said "winning's not everything, it's the only thing". As it turns out, that is not quite what Lombardi said. Waitley feels you in on the facts.
While Waitley's ten points for greatness are inspiring, I was most moved by his use of primary resources. Not to discredit other self-helpers, but Waitley's consistent use of first-hand stories gave "Seeds of Greatness" a richness and credibility that is not easily found in self-help books.
My advice is to read each chapter and to practice his recommended skills section before moving on to the next chapter. You'll be able to appreciate these pearls of wisdom better and you'll also start to see the positive changes in yourself!
Not just another motivational book on the shelf. This is in the league of Og Mandino, Norman Vincent Peale and James Allen.
Wait no longer. Plant your seeds of greatness today!
1. Change your life style for the better.
2. Choose goals and then follow Waitley's steps to attain them.
3. Be a self-manager by building self-reliance, using self-talk, and enhancing your self-esteem.
4. Make the right decisions in your life by asking yourself the three vital questions.
5. How to understand what makes you tick and to be understood.
Dr. Waitley also shows the reader how to gain a fresh perspective of living each new day as the ten best kept secrets of total success are uncovered. Those secrets are the following "seeds":
1. The seed of self-esteem.
2. The seed of creativity.
3. The seed of responsibility.
4. The seed of wisdom.
5. The seed of purpose.
6. The seed of communication.
7. The seed of faith.
8. The seed of adaptability.
9. The seed of perseverence.
10. The seed of perspective.
A very inspirational and motivational treatise. I rate it at five stars without hesitation or reservation.
