#Nonfiction #Inspiration 'There Are No Overachievers' by Brian D. Biro
There Are No Overachievers: Seizing Your Windows of Opportunity to Do More Than You Thought Possible by Brian D Biro
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Brian D. Biro must be fascinating to listen to as a public speaker, because even in writing he held my rapt attention. I read the first 112 pages of this book straight through while I waited for my car to be serviced.
I was inspired by the way Biro was constantly on the lookout for "Windows of Opportunity" (WOOs). These are opportunities to help others live up to their full potential, to be present in the moment, to be more loving, to make the most out of life with our friends and families. I loved the positive outlook of this short but sweet book and the way success was defined, not by money and fame, but by sharing in moments of transcendence with others.
One of the lessons I learned from this book was to have an attitude to "Maybe I can..." instead of assuming that something was impossible. I plan to re-read this book every year, if not every 6 months, for a fresh burst of inspiration.
I received this book through the Amazon Vine program in exchange for my honest review. I was not otherwise compensated.
