Zie je, ik begrijp de wens om te willen leren maar tegelijkertijd op te zien tegen het lezen van een lijvig en dik boek! Daarom hebben we dit boek gemaakt.... Meer over dit boek: Zou je liever een les leren dank zij de 30 jaar levenservaring van anderen of 30 jaar leven om diezelfde les te leren? Denk daar eens over na. Wat ik je eigenlijk vraag is… waarom niet leren van de mislukkingen, successen en levenservaringen van andere mensen? Het was Socrates, een van de grootste Griekse filosofen die zei dat… "Echte Wijsheid Komt tot Ieder van Ons Wanneer We Beseffen Hoe Weinig We Begrijpen van het Leven, Onszelf en de Wereld om ons Heen". Het is toch zo, dat we echt geen lijvig boek vol met jargon en techniciteiten moeten lezen om wijzer, bewuster en vredelievender te worden? Dat is waarom dit 365 Citaten van Wijsheid boek zo belangrijk is. Dat is het mooie van Citaten. Kort, Simpel en Krachtig.

365 Frases de Autodisciplina: Frases Diárias de Autodisciplina para Hábitos Duradouros, Força Mental e Atingir os Objetivos

by Xabier K. Fernao

“Somos aquilo que fazemos repetidamente. A Excelência não é um ato, mas sim um hábito” – Aristóteles Qual é o fator delimitador #1 entre pobres e ricos, os bem-sucedidos e os fracassados, as pessoas felizes e infelizes? Autodisciplina. Pense nisso. Quando não é disciplinado em relação ao seu trabalho/emprego, acumula trabalho e eventualmente enerva-se e fica esgotado. Quando não é disciplinado com as suas finanças, irá acumular despesas e dívidas desnecessárias e irá eventualmente enervar-se e ficar esgotado a nível económico. Já percebeu a ideia. Contudo, o que se passa com o livro “365 Dias de Frases de Autodisciplina”? Concorda que a mentalidade é 80%, e as estratégias e mecânicas são apenas 20% no que toca a atingir o sucesso? Já entendeu a ideia geral. As pessoas estão sempre a perseguir os 20%, as coisas vistosas, e pensam que UMA boa ideia vai discipliná-las. São, contudo, todos os lembretes diários, influência e ambiente que fazem com que as pessoas se disciplinem e comprometam todos os dias. Não sei o que está a tentar alcançar. Talvez seja o seu corpo de sonho, ter aqueles abdominais que sempre quis. Talvez seja uma inovação no seu negócio, acrescentando mais um zero no final do rendimento anual deste ano. Não importa. Aquilo que sei sobre si, ainda assim, é que é alguém que quer mais. E isso já é espetacular. Quer mais dinheiro, mais saúde, mais felicidade, mais sexo, mais prazer, mais conhecimento e mais liberdade… e não existe nada de errado com isso. A vida é sobre crescer e expandir o nosso ‘eu’. Ou crescemos um pouco a cada dia ou morremos um pouco a cada dia. Expresso-lhe o meu mais profundo respeito por querer escolher o caminho ascendente, o caminho do crescimento e da autodisciplina.

40/40 Vision: Clarifying Your Mission in Midlife

by Bob Buford Peter Greer Greg Lafferty

At midlife, our perspective can become blurry. Midlife is a disruptive season where we collide with limitations on all sides. We recognize there is more of life in the rearview mirror than on the road ahead of us. We wonder if our lives so far have been worthwhile. We are uncertain about what lies ahead. But midlife is also an opportunity to recalibrate our vision. It's a time to look back, take stock of our lives so far, and refocus on new dimensions of identity and calling. Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty offer insight for navigating midlife with fresh clarity and purpose. Drawing on the wisdom of the book of Ecclesiastes, they show how we can come to grips with the realities of who we are and what we should become in the years ahead. In a world that can seem meaningless at times, God offers perspective that anchors us, renews us and propels us back into the world in meaningful mission and service. Rediscover who God has called you to be. And see the rest of your life with the clarity of 40/40 vision.
