Week Ten: People we Admire shape our Lives

Welcome to Week 10

This book helped change my perspective on life. These six people are ones I and many others admire. I love how Mr. Aikman took all six of their lives and told the story of the world in the 20th century. It is interesting to note they all had some very difficult times in life and over came it through grace, grit, and determination.  There is an old saying those who forget the past are destined to repeat it. The lives of these six people serve as a reminder that life has blessed and tragic times. 

This week I want you to reflect on the people you admire. Those both who are gone from the world and those who are still living. I want you to think about what you know about their lives. What about them leaves a lasting impression in your mind. Why do you admire them? What if any effect does admiring them have or has had on your life. As you go throughout the week talk to others about these folks and ask them their opinions. Give yourself time to reflect on what is said and how it has either changed or supported your views on these people. Once you have done this you are ready to journal about the final question. Here it is.

Pick three people two dead and one living who you would like to sit down with at a private dinner. List four questions you would ask them and then write down why.

The answer to this question will give you insight on how you see the world. How admiring others has shaped you life and how. Share the thoughts and feelings you feel during the week with your significant other and your children.
