Many motivation books say the exact same thing over and over again. What was that penguin book? I am always reading something. Fiction or not, the book must inspire me to keep flipping the page. Monday, 8 October, I could not put down Fire Them Up! by Carmine Gallo. To put it simply, I was fired up!
For me, Monday was a government holiday and an extra day to mentally prepare myself for a busy week. This year has been full of ups and downs and anything but simple. In 212 pages, seven simple secrets to inspire colleagues, customers and clients; sell yourself, your vision, and your values; and communicate with charisma is revealed.
"Few of us will live at a confluence of history where we can unleash previously untapped powers to change the world, but we are all catalysts of change for the people around us."
Passion is not a dirty word. Dreams are not silly. In one book, Gallo lights the way to a better future with stories and lessons learned from past and present leaders. The book is an easy read, full of lists and real life examples to become a better storyteller.
The holiday season is often a spark plug for stress and distress. I recommend you self-medicate and rejuvenate your spirit with this book.
Disclaimer: Carmine Gallo did provide me a complimentary copy of this book for review.
