Over seven billion people are on our planet, yet not one of us have the same fingerprints, footprints, or even laugh. Every individual is authentic. Every person is an unrepeatable miracle. However, most of us do not feel special. Why? In the book, Aspire, Kevin Hall recounts the following Hindu legend, At one time all men on earth were gods, but men so sinned and abused the Divine that Brahma, the god of all gods, decided that the godhead should be taken away from man and hid some place where he would never again find it or abuse it. “We will bury it deep in the earth,” said the other gods. “No,” said Brahma, “because man will dig down in the earth and find it.” “The we will sink it in the deepest ocean,” they said. “No,” said Brahma, “because man will learn to dive and find it there , too.” “We will hide it on the highest mountain,” they said. “No,” said Brahma, “because man will some day climg every mountain on earth and again capture the godhead.” “Then we do not know where to hide it where he cannot find it,” said the lesser gods. “I will tell you,” said Brahma. “Hide it down in man himself. He will never think to look there.” In her book, A Return to Love, Marianne Williamson recognizes our God-given gifts when she says, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” To learn more about Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through the Power of Words By Kevin Hall, click here. An expert recognized for his uncovering the hidden, and often secret meaning of words, Kevin Hall now shares his wisdom with us all. In Aspire! he teaches readers to understand what words mean in their purest sense and unlock their importance as they develop a thoughtful new vocabulary. As Stephen R. Covey so beautifully elucidates in his foreword, “this masterfully written book will help you understand that words have an inherent power, a force capable of lighting one′s paths and horizons. Used correctly and positively, words are the first building blocks for success and inner peace. Used incorrectly and negatively, they are capable of undermining even the best of intentions. This is true in business, in personal relationships, and every other walk of life.” By focusing on eleven words-one per chapter–Aspire! shows how to use these words as building blocks for success and inner peace. The words, from the very familiar to the very unusual, will become touchstones in personal development and in business.
