Kevin Hall’s book, Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through the Power of Words, changed my life… and I don’t use those words lightly. There are very few events or books that have impacted my life in such a profound way.
When I was gifted a copy of Aspire, I was intending to leave the financial services industry – however, I devoured the book, and I came away re-committed and re-engaged. The book taught me just how powerful our words are, and how they can change the way we believe about ourselves and impact the world.
Embark on a Journey To Fulfill Who You Are Meant to Be
In Aspire, Kevin writes, “Understanding, as well as appreciating, our unique calling is critical. The two most important days of our life are the day we are born and the day we discover what we were born to do. That’s the day we catch the vision of who we are meant to be.”
There are two words that helped guide Kevin to his unique calling:
- Genshai – Originating in India, Genshai means that you will never treat another person in a manner that will make them feel small – including yourself. “When I believe in myself I love myself, and when I love myself I treat myself with respect.”
- Inspire – The earliest origin to ‘-spire’ is breath, and inspiration is a way to breathe life into someone else and their dreams.
