“A Treasure of Wisdom”
By Bob Vanourek
Every now and then, I have a chance to read a book a colleague has written and want to tell others about it. Such it is with Frank Sonnenberg’s Follow Your Conscience: Make a Difference in Your Life and the Lives of Others.
Frank is an award-winning author and a consultant who works in the areas of leadership, character, values, and personal responsibility. I met Frank electronically through my association with Trust Across America–Trust Around the World.
This book is a real gem and is rich with sage advice. I have many pages dog-eared and passages highlighted. Frank covers topics like the power of kindness, forgiveness, and believing; the magic of giving; the most important things to teach your children; the elements of tough love; and the little things in life that are so big.
For example, here are a few of his “magic words”:
- I’m sorry
- I’m listening
- I volunteer
- I love you
- I trust you
- I’m proud of you
- Thank you
- You can count on me
- Pay it forward
- I believe in you
Want more? I heartily recommend this treasure.
