It has been awhile since I last read a book. Most of my free time is given to blogging or watching korean novelas, or series. What urged me to read the book of Brother Bo was the fact that it was given as a gift by Brother Bo (perk I think of subscribing or being part of the Truly Rich Club) and I wanted to start January with an inspirational self help book.
So as I mentioned I got the book: Life Manual 101: How To Make Your Dreams Come True by Brother Bo late last week. I started reading it this Monday and I finished reading it today. Overall it has a very natural flow to it which made it so hard to put down and so easy to read. I think I could have finished it in a day, but I wanted to read it bit by bit just to help my days start better (with a cup of inspiration).
Reading the book was a good decision for me, especially because we have a lot of plans this year (more on this on my next posts). Brother Bo basically tells you that you have the power to reach your dream, if your dream comes from a purpose and not from pride and if you work for it and not just be a passive receiver of blessings from God. That in a nut shell is what I learned from the book.
He shares that God has dreams for us and we also have dreams as individuals, we just have to meet in the middle to determine if our dreams will help us push forth with our main purpose in life or if it stems from pride. Badly put, do you want to be rich to help your family or you want to be rich just because you want to or you want to buy a car for the family vs. you want to buy a luxury car for show. He shares in his book that even if we sometimes think that God is not listening to our prayers (aka I want to be rich) God really wants us to succeed (aka if you want to be rich you have to work with God and not just wait for it to fall from the heavens above).
Dreams really do come true, especially if you pray for it and act on it. Emphasis on act because most if not all of the people I know pray day in and day out for a dream but they do not do anything to reach that dream. Aside from this he also points out that in achieving your dream (therefore succeeding) you must also help people around you achieve their dreams – for your life to have purpose or in his words significance.
At the end of reading the book I feel more inspired to work on my dreams, our dreams, and to be active in achieving it. I give this book a 4.5 out of 5. 🙂
