March Book of the Month
I’m a little late in posting March’s book of the month, but I was pretty sure I knew it needed to be this book. I just needed to finish it first.
I told you a few weeks ago that I thought this book would be life-changing. I feel like I’ve already won an insecurity battle by admitting that I needed this book. But truly, we all need this book.
Women – this disease of insecurity is crippling us. It may rear it’s ugly head in different ways for each of us, but I really think you’ll find yourself somewhere in the pages of this book.
Men – you are not exempt. Although Beth writes this to women, she shares some insights on how this affects you guys too. We also know we drive you crazy with our insecurity crap, so maybe reading this would give you a bit more insight into the mental and emotional battle we’re fighting daily.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
The enemy of your soul has a tremendous amount to gain if you don’t deal with your insecurities.
Insecurity is not the same thing as sensitivity.
Insecurity’s best cover is perfectionism. That’s where it becomes an art form.
Not only will insecurity cheat us of reaching and then operating consistently at maximum potential, it also will turn our coworkers into threats and trap us into becoming posers.
Insecurity lives in constant terror of loss.
It’s up to us whether or not we’re going to let the worst of us get the best of us.
We will never feel better about ourselves by becoming more consumed with ourselves.
Unchecked and unhealed, it (insecurity) makes an idiot out of us over and over.
Hitting any nerves yet?
