Kiss That Frog!

Kiss That Frog!

 

Kiss That FrogEarlier this month I was visiting a local bookstore. Yes, we still have a few brick and mortar bookstores and yes, you can still buy a real book with pages to turn. Anyway...a title caught my eye, Kiss That Frog! It sounded like another book I read a few years ago, Eat That Frog! Lo and behold, they were written by the same author. I learned a lot from the first book, so it seemed logical that I could benefit from the new book also.

 

I decided to read the book jacket to find out what Kiss That Frog! was really about. Essentially the book is about turning negatives in your work and life into positives. Short and sweet. I just started the book before the weekend. I'm also a slow reader. I'm not the type to sit and read and read. I'll read a little bit here and a little bit there.

 

I'm in the middle of Chapter 2, Imagine Your Handsome Prince. The book is filled with exercises to practice turning negative to positive. There is one in this chapter about designing your perfect future. There are 4 questions to answer about your life, 5 years in the future. I love these thought provoking questions.

 

As I said, I'm only on Chapter 2, but I can already recognize that value of what I will learn in the latest book from Brian Tracy.

Hi Donna,
I was just checking in to say hi to you and saw this post.  I've been kind of MIA this summer.  Long story. Anyway, your focus on the positive is the subject I have started focusing on with getting back to posting on AR.   With all the negativity in the world, it take focus to stay on the positive side.  Keep up the good work!

I enjoyed reading "Kiss That Frog" some years back--a nice, quick read with some good nuggets of wisdom. I echo Debbie Reynolds in the hope that you'll return to blogging here regularly again; I've always enjoyed and learned from your posts. Maybe after Santa time???
