In further feeding my addiction to self-improvement books, a book was recommended to me by my friend Phil Strevy, DDS from Nebraska.

Recently finished the book Aspire by Kevin Hall. The book is about the power of words and how they can help figure out your life's journey. It has a forward from Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Need I say anything more?

Fantastic book! Here is a free online link to the first chapter:

Lessons/words that I took from the book:

Genshai - Never make yourself or anyone else feel small
Ollin - Total commitment (are you "all in"?)
Sapere Vadere - I see you - (Like from the movie "Avatar") - people with sapare vadere have the ability to look forward as well as inward - they are capable of believing and seeing what others don't
Namaste - Recognize and respect the divinity in you and others.

Well you get the point.  I read the free link and immediately bought the book.  It did not disappoint!!
