The book kicks off with A for being appreciative. How can we appreciate our situation even if it is difficult; the author suggests reading "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie. What is very inspiring about this chapter and Michael's writing style in general is he is very open about his life and how he can teach what he knows to everyone who is willing to listen. I enjoyed the part about how his grandmother didn't enjoy his audiobook so he had to redo it.
W stands for being well-balanced and covers how to avoid putting too much on your plate by balancing the activities you need to get done as compared to doing everything. We have to spend our willpower currency so that we have a healthy balance in our lives.
E means being Empathetic and discusses:
1. "I'll be nice to you if you be nice to me."
2. Find the strength to forgive and understand people who hurt you.
3. Being more empathetic lets you let go of the negative stuff but hold onto the positive too.
S if for Strategic and gives great strategies for going after everything you want and fulfilling your bucket list; O is about being original by learning to be yourself and not just imitate or copy others. Get comfortable by being in your own skin.
M means being Mature by handling criticism and rejection; analyse your relationships and decide if they are helping or hurting you; be who you are the priority in your life. Finally we have E that stands for Empowerment [my favourite topic] and tells us that our thoughts are who we are; we need to dispel the negative and embrace our positive thinking.
As this books message clearly states, we can be AWESOME by being Appreciative, Well-Balanced, Empathetic, Strategic, Original, Mature and Empowered.
What I really liked about this book is how it is organized for easy reading. All of the letters stand for one of the principles in the book and that keeps the reader interested in what is coming up next. Stock full of value and life lessons that are engaging, Awesome In Hours is a definite must-read!
This could also sum up to being content and grateful for everything. I find this book very inspirational I could mention the entire acronym but have to stop at A to keep something for you to be curious about.
This is a very well written book that is filled with practical and thought provoking ideas on living your life to the fullest. Plus inspiring stories in between Michael's pieces of advice.
I like the part where he tells us to be appreciative. It is time for us all to appreciate what we have and those around us. I also like the take away points at the end of each chapter that condense what was said into a group of short sentences. I am a quote collector and I really like the quotes he uses to begin the chapter.
I recommend this book to everyone. We all need to be more Appreciative, Well-balanced, Empathetic, Strategic in our quest to be awesome, Original, Mature (most definitely), and Empowered. Follow what Michael has shown you in this book and you, too, can become awesome in hours. Once you start to become awesome, strive to be more awesome. With awesome people running around the world, it will do much to guide this world into awesomeness. Get the book and learn to be awesome. It will change your life for the better. I look forward to reading his next book.
