Life lessons learned: When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book. I was intrigued by the description of the author and wondered how such a beautiful lady that seemed to have it all could teach me anything about creating confidence. Much to my surprise, I found the book to be very inspiring without lecturing or getting too philosophical. The author shares lessons learned from significant events (like getting fired from your job) or other common events (like asking the guy you like out) and show us how each situation is a choice for us to be in “control of our own destiny and responsible for our own success”. Based on the book, I’m assessing my superpowers, using ‘excuse me’ instead of ‘sorry’, and pivoting difficult questions. Even though my background is very different from that of the author, I could relate to most of her life experiences and even had a few laughs with some of her stories. I will definite use the tips provided in the book and pay more attention to finding my voice and conquering my fears. I’m getting a few copies of this book as gifts!
