Today, we are proud to feature the voice of Gary from the United States. Gary writes about how Turning Inspiration into Action was “interesting, thought provoking, challenging and fun.”
Interesting, Thought Provoking, Challenging and Fun:
Matt’s book, ‘Turning Inspiration Into Action’, grabs your attention, and keeps you turning pages until you exhale and realize you’re done. I like the honesty of the ‘simple, but not easy’ path to personal transformation.
Keith Norris’s foreword sets the bar…’the journey, magical though it is, does not come cheap. Nor is it easy. You’ll have to work, and you’ll have to be dedicated to the outcome.” Now, if you accept personal responsibility for your life, your success and your path, keep reading. This is your kind of book.
Matt provides a process to guide you through answering the age old problem…of getting excited and inspired one day and then dropping back to your pre-inspired life….
The key to Matt’s whole approach is using questions, three in particular:
- WHAT inspires you?
- WHY is it important to you?
- HOW will you bring change into your life?
Matt then opens up and shares the deeply personal ups and downs of several transformations in his life. His conclusion was simple and to the point: “What matters most is that you focus more on the ups, don’t let the downs get you down, and keep moving forward on your journey.”
Now, the book turns its focus on you…”the key to a better life is through creating a better you.” Again, the process is simple and focused, easy to understand, yet requires time and focus to execute:
- Accepting Personal Responsibility
- Kaizen – continuous improvement
- Carefree diligence – relaxed movement/progress
Matt then fleshes out how this transformation looks and feels as you walk through your own journey. He provides insight, support, inspiration, and actionable advice. There is much to this book. Take the time to read it, reflect on its insights, and act!
Then, you too will be able to Turn Inspiration into Action!
