It's easy to trick yourself into thinking that because you're a certain age, it's too late to make any changes in your life. Whether it's your education, a relationship, career or hobby, C.C. shows why it's never to late to improve upon yourself, experience new things or go after your dreams (caveating that safety nets are important when you have responsibilities like children or a mortgage to support). We've all made excuses about why we can't do something. We're all too busy or too tired. But C.C. makes one important observation: we're all given the same amount of hours in the day; it's just up to us what we do with that time.
Because of this guide I'm making a commitment to make more out of the hours I have each day. Yes, I will still have lazy movie days, and no, I will likely never compete in an Iron Man competition, but immediately after I finished reading C.C.'s book, I connected with a friend about volunteering, turned off my phone's automatic email updates and started looking into classes I could take on the weekends. So thank you, C.C., for helping me change my thinking.
CC shares just some of the amazing things that have happened to him and other highly successful individuals and reflects on years of lessons learned, decision points made at pivotal moments, and the incredible outcomes and success he has seen across all aspects of his life. The also book provides some very straightforward guides and simple exercises you can work through to discover themes in your life that will help you focus in on your true passions. Just make sure you have a notebook handy!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Amazing Things will Happen and was inspired to take action and start the process of turning my passions into my work.
He has successfully adapted to and been on the forefront of social and technological changes that most people and business are still catching up to.
Amazing Things Will Happen distills the lessons and experiences of that work into both broad-reaching advice and little day-to-day changes that will make large differences in your life. Zap it onto your kindle, settle in with a coffee (or beer) and learn how to connect the dots between hard work, doing good things, and the type of success that will actually make you happy.
It's well worth the (very affordable) price!
