I recently had the privilege of reading the newly released book “Pearls of Wisdom: 30 Inspirational Ideas to Live Your Best Life Now!” brought to you by Jack Canfield and New York Times bestselling authors Marci Shimoff, Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood. As well as up and coming inspirational authors Barnet Bain, Kelle Sutliff, Renee Baribeau, Chantal Herman, Asia Voight, Wendy Beyer, Siobhan Coulter, Sheila Pearl, Susan Barker, Glenyce Hughes, Robert Evans, Glenn Groves, Leslie Gunterson, Kimberly Burnham, Liz Byrne, Tami Gulland, Susan McMillin, Debra Hanes, Stephanie Bennett Vogt, Lisa Merrai Labon, Patricia Cohen, Craig Meriwether, Marcelle Charrois, Michelle Manning-Kogler, Stacy Goforth, Jacob Nordby, Tim Anstett and Randy Davila.
Jack Canfield is known as one of the leaders in the self-help field and is co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. If you like the any of Jack Canfield’s books then you will like this book. It is a collection of 30 short informational and transformational ideas to help you create a better and more fulfilling life.
As I read through this book I soon discovered that each chapter was a little piece of perfect information to help me along my path. It teaches us not to give up, to go for our dreams, even if it seems like it will never happen, to tap into our infinite support team and discover that you can truly create the life you want. Pearls of Wisdom is much more than just a new self-help book on the market, it is the best pieces of every self-help book that I have ever read rolled up into one book.
The meaning behind the name, Pearls of Wisdom is given from a quote inside the book cover, “An oyster can’t produce a pearl without first suffering from a grain of sand.” This is a great metaphor for our lives. When something we think and perceive happens that is bad can actually turn out to be a great blessing in disguise.
There are so many great stories that it is hard to pin point which ones touched me the most. I love the perseverance of Asia Voight who was told she would never walk again after a bad car accident and that never stopped her; she now walks. I love Jack Canfield’s story of how he never gave up on his dream even after 144 rejections by book publishers or Liz Byrne reminding us to relax and meditate.
I recommend reading a chapter every morning to get your day started right. There is such great wisdom in this book and it is worth keeping an eye on what will be produced next. My hope is that book is the first of many more to come. I highly recommend reading it; it is a book that will never go out of style.
