The 7 Decisions for Personal Success - The Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrews review

I just finished listening to the audiobook version of "The Travelers Gift" by Andy Andrews.

I have to say that it was quite inspirational.

It's about a man who is going through a rough time and, after getting fired from his job, goes for drive and hits a tree.   However, instead of going through the crash, he is transported through time and space to learn the 7 lessons from some famous and not-so-famous people through history.

I am going to give you the 7 lessons, but I strongly recommend that you read or listen to the book yourself, as it is highly transformational.

The Seven Decisions for Personal Success

#1:   The buck stops here.   I am responsible for my past and my future.

#2:   I will seek wisdom.   I will be a servant to others.

#3:   I am a person of action.   I seize this moment.   I choose now.

#4:   I have a decided heart.   My destiny is assured.

#5:  Today I choose to be happy.   I am the possessor of a grateful spirit.

#6:   I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit.  I will forgive myself.

#7:   I will persist without exception.   I am a person of great faith.

Excellent lessons, I'm sure you'll agree. So get the book so you can feel what the main character goes through to learn these lessons. It is a wonderful and thought-provoking ride.

Tyler teaches Jacob how to ride his bike!




This was in our front yard in 2010.  You know that joke about what it feels like to step on a lego?  That's what that driveway is like all over sometimes.

Anyway, look at my boy go!
