Okay... So we finished the book by Gene Simmons titled "On Power".

What a great book that was!!

As you can see from all of the posts we have already written this year there was a lot of good information in that book to share with you guys. 

The crazy thing is we didn't even share all of it with you guys. 

You Can't Blame Your Circumstances, You Are Your Possibilities

We read this quote from Oprah Winfrey this week and it was so powerful we wanted it to be our focus of the post for this week.

The quote was as follows:

"What I learned at a very young age was that I was responsible for my life... You cannot blame apartheid, your parents, your circumstances, because you are not your circumstances. You are your possibilities. If you know that, you can do anything." - Oprah Winfrey

Quit Talking the Talk and Start Walking the Walk

We read part of a speech this week from Gene Simmon's book and that is what we want to talk about today.

What we read is below:

"It is not the critic who counts; nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, becuase there is no effort without error to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least failes while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - 1910 speech: "Citizenship in a Republic," delivered at the Sorbonne by Teddy Roosevelt

Is Having Power Really That Important?

Is Power everything in life?

Is it the one thing that makes the world go round?

If you could only have one thing, is Power that one thing you should go after in life?

Always Keep Moving Forward

One of the many things that Gene talks about in his book he talks about the value of always keep
moving.

To many people, this usually means that once you achieve one goal, then you should immediately start
looking for your next goal.
