On poop + A book review

I know. I know. Poop? It does sounds strange. I almost used the sh*t word because that’s what it’s really about. There’s a septic system problem with the house we just bought. Therefore, poop. Literally and figuratively!

We’re trying to get it all straightened out before we continue on our wander around the southern US in HaRVey with our three pooches.

Trying to work with the city to find out what we need to do and getting permits is a continual lesson in patience. Haven’t I always said the you’ve got to go with the flow of the universe and she works in her own sweet time? Time to practice what I preach!

So while we’re waiting, I’m going to review the book The CEO of YOU by Marsha Petrie Sue.  ceo-of-you-book

This is a take no prisoners woman. She clearly states and outlines how to be successful in your life. Marsha makes it clear that you are in charge of you. You are not a victim of life. No one is. Good things and bad things happen to all of us. How you take charge of your life is up to you and the choices you make every minute.

There are 7 chapters in the book titled:

~ You are the company

~ An attitude of gratitude

~ Response+able= responsible

~ Human doing or human being

~ Unsafe stress

~ Unconscious competence

~ Solving the relationship puzzle

There are also many inspiring quotes throughout which resonated with me deeply. One by Elbert Hubbard said, "Cultivate only the habits that you are willing should master you."

Or "men do not fail: they give up trying", by Root.

The best way to get a feel for this book is to read an excerpt. Click here for that.

All I can say is that after reading The CEO of YOU, I felt inspired and empowered. Two great feelings to have when you want to take charge of your life in a new way.

Now I just have to encourage the city to be inspired about helping us with poop!
