A Book Review: it's Not Who You Know, It's Who You Are

It's Not Who You Know, It's Who You Are: Life Lessons from Winners

The title of the book made me curious... *It's Not Who You Know, It's Who You Are by Pat Williams Reading through the pages, I understood.  Story after story with one thing in common:  It's what's inside that births greatness.  It's the grace and character and perserverance, each story giving a glimpse of those who have had great success, but were also willing to pay a great price.  Achievement birthed from the humble and meek, the ones who dared to say, I'm not going to quit.  The words that spoke the greatest to my heart was the story of the firsst President Bush.  A member of his team had violated the law, used words that were not his own.  And he was caught.  And it was a big deal.  As the President called him in to what he was sure would be his dismissal, he found instead grace.  Beautiful humble grace that said in spite of your actions, you are of value.  In spite of what has happened, you have owned it, now lets move forward.  A beautiful testiment that who we are is not determined buy ourward things, but by what is inside of all of us.

*A copy of this book was garciously supplied to me for my honest review.
