Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham

I got a chance to read another book, and it is "Find Your Strongest Life" by Marcus Buckingham. At first I wasn't to sure about it, I figured it was more for women who go to a job rather than the stay at home moms like me. But let me tell you, it is for every women! What a good read! AND I have a FREE hardback to give away!!! Post a comment by Oct 10th, and will send it out to the lucky winner after that! E-mail me or post a comment on FB counts too!

Anyways... They have a "test" you can take to discover the role you were born to play is. So I am like sure, why not?

My lead role is Teacher and my Supporting Role is Equalizer. Now they say that it may not define you completely, but it helps you put your foot in the right direction.

Yeah, I can see the lead role is pretty much right! :O) But Equalizer? Hmm... It says:
You begin by asking:
'What’s the right thing to do?'

You are sensitive to how everything in the world is connected, how movement in one part of the world causes everything else to move as well. Alive to this inter-connectedness, you feel compelled to keep everything aligned.

Your best quality:
Your innate sense for what is right

Always:
Lead with your values

Be careful you:
Don’t become too obviously defensive when your values are challenged

Your smartest career move:
Any job where you’re paid to speak up for people who’ve been wronged.


Not sure I agree 100% with everything, but it's just a test, right? ;o)

Here's what the inside cover says about the book, and it sums it up GREAT! Couldn't have said it better myself:

"Have you given up on "having it all"? Or maybe you're so busy having it all that you can't figure out how to enjoy it? Maybe, you don't even know what "all" you're supposed to have anymore?

You are not alone."

Again, I have a hardback copy I am giving away!!! If you would like this, or know someone who could use this, post a comment or e-mail me!
