Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham

I recently finished reading Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham. 

Book Summary
In Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham reveals the powerful key to bring fulfillment, peace, and control into a woman's life.

In today's world, can a woman truly "have it all"? A fulfilling career full of passion and performance? A belief that she is truly becoming the best, authentic version of herself? A happy, healthy life outside of work?

Countless women would roll their eyes at the possibility. Work is overwhelming. And for many of them, add the necessities of family and home. It all feels disconnected, out of control, and relentless.

In Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham reveals the powerful key to help women draw enough strength from life to feel fulfilled, loved, successful, and in control. Even more, he helps women reconnect with their purpose and gives a starting point for change. A research-based message that applies to work and life, Find Your Strongest Life shows women a "unified theory" for how they really can have it all . . . the right kind of all.

My Thoughts
Finding Your Strongest Life presents a new way of looking at our strengths and weaknesses as women.  We have been taught by society to find balance with our lives.  Marcus is going to challenge that thinking and retrain us how to live a strong life by accentuating our strengths and find strong points within our weaknesses.

I felt challenged in my thinking while reading this book.  It wasn't just a pleasure read but one that leaves you feeling as if you should apply the concept and see where it takes you.  We weren't all meant to live the same life so why is it that as women we try to do it all and achieve perfect balance.  Marcus really opened my eyes to the fact that I don't have to have balance and that is okay.  So I really don't have an imaculate home and I don't go to all the kids extracuricular events but I do write, blog and show my kids loads of affection.  That is me why should I question if that isn't good enough?  Doesn't God make us who we are as individuals not as copies of each other.  I challenge all women to pick up a copy of this book and learn who you are.  Evaluate yourself and live your strengths to become who you were meant to be not who someone thinks you should be.  Also, you may want to check out The Strongest Life Online Test.
