I am a reader! I love to read and spend countless hours reading whatever I can. Melissa was totally sent in a tailspin when I obtained a Kindle. Why you may ask? Because now when we are away on business I have my nose stuck in a book. It was a complete no brainer for me to jump at the chance to read and review The Charge.
The Charge is an excellent read. It really gave me the opportunity to think about what motivates me, what makes me think the way I do, what truly makes me feel alive. I can not say I am a person that has lived a “charged” life but this book has really made me want to do so! You may be thinking what exactly is a charged life? According to the book a charged life is “a consciously designed existence that feels evenly engaged, energized, and enthusiastic.” (Burchard, 2012, The Charge, New York, Free Press) In my life I have looked at past experiences and have loved to blame them in some way. This book really made me sit back and think about my part. What have I done to transform me into who I have become?
The first chapter of the book “Out of the Darkness” was very eye opening to me. It really put in perspective about where I am in my life. This chapter discusses the human drives and and the traits of a charger. This is when I realized reading the rest of this book was going to make a difference in my life.
I have learned a lot about congruence. I think the point that hit me the was “Congruence isn’t just in doing what we say we’ll do but in doing what we know we should from start to finish.” (Burchard, 2012, The Charge, New York, Free Press) I have learned a lot about the drive for congruence by reading The Charge. The knowledge I have gained by reading The Charge has allowed me to set new standards in my life.
My favorite takeaway from the book is brainstorming activities included and the powerful questions it asks. The Charge has made me really think about how to change my life internally. This book has given me new hope by changing the way I think, looking at my past, and how to hold my self accountable for my future.
