Another Great Book!

It keeps happening! Great books are sent my way and then I get to pass on to you something that you simply MUST READ!!! I have seriously enjoyed this book. It is a quick easy read and I have enjoyed carrying it around with me the past few weeks and grabbing every free minute (there are not many) to absorb the words of this book!

One of my favorite quotes, " A remarkable performance creates curiousity. It makes others wonder about our commitment, passion,and excellence; and it opens doors for conversation about the remarkable Source we draw from!"

Everyone wants to make a difference in the world, but most have no idea how to maximize their impact. In The Encore Effect, best-selling author and leadership expert Mark Sanborn provides the answer. He leads readers in six practices that will move them beyond excellence to distinction and from mundane to memorable. These principles guide readers to draw on their passion and devote themselves to preparation, practice, presentation, polishing, and finally, avoiding pitfalls. When readers follow these principles they will find that people are attracted to them. More importantly, they’ll find that they now have an influence over others that can impact lives for eternity.

I have one free copy to give away. Leave a comment about why you think you could benefit from receiving this book and I just might send it your way!!

i will purchase the book for myself, Kelly. I find myself putting "me" at the center of everything and when i walk away from people, i believe their only thought is about "me" and not about the total source of my strength. I think this may be because i know how far i am from what God really wants me to be, that i dont allow Him credit because i think He will be besmirched by my life rather than exhaulted. I probably need to read more of his book. goodness, i am so sory for such negatiity. i must begin more positively, for this is the day He has made and i am to rejoice. I will begin. love, jk
