9780061964541: Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through the Power of Words

An expert recognized for his uncovering the hidden, and often secret meaning of words, Kevin Hall now shares his wisdom with us all. In Aspire! he teaches readers to understand what words mean in their purest sense and unlock their importance as they develop a thoughtful new vocabulary.

As Stephen R. Covey so beautifully elucidates in his foreword, "this masterfully written book will help you understand that words have an inherent power, a force capable of lighting one′s paths and horizons. Used correctly and positively, words are the first building blocks for success and inner peace. Used incorrectly and negatively, they are capable of undermining even the best of intentions. This is true in business, in personal relationships, and every other walk of life."

By focusing on eleven words-one per chapter--Aspire! shows how to use these words as building blocks for success and inner peace. The words, from the very familiar to the very unusual, will become touchstones in personal development and in business.

Review:

“Just as I broke new ground in human development over twenty years ago by uncovering the habits that make for a meaningful and effective life, Kevin Hall is breaking new ground by uncovering and revealing the true intent and meaning of the words that make up those habits.” (Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

“Words have power . . . amazing power! I can’t wait to see the world’s response to Aspire!.” (John Assaraf, author of The Answer; Teacher in The Secret)

“Kevin Hall’s ability to unlock human potential is rare and extremely valuable. In Aspire!, he unveils a completely new paradigm for personal development and growth that is dynamic and life changing.” (Norman E. Brinker, founder and chairman emeritus, Brinker International)

“Once you pick this book up you will find it hard to put down. The layers of examples and principles inside a single word can prove life changing. This is a treasure that I will refer to over and over again. (Stephen M. R. Covey, author of The Speed of Trust)

“More than just an engaging sojourn into etymology, Aspire! has the power to help individuals and teams focus on their true purpose and reach their best and highest aspirations.” (Richard Paul Evans, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box)

“Kevin Hall shows us the surprising power of words—tools we can use to shape new thoughts and beliefs—to help us change, and create something better for ourselves and our planet.” (Spencer Johnson, M.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of Who Moved My Cheese? and Peaks and Valleys)

“I love great books that have changed my life. Aspire is one of those truly great books. Kevin Hall is right up there with Og Mandino and Napoleon Hill.” (Bob Proctor, teacher in The Secret and bestselling author of You Were Born Rich)

“This book brings to light the power of language to not only inform, but also to realize the potential of a life fully lived. vThe revelations in Aspire are necessary tools to aid every passage of life.” (Gail Sheehy, New York Times bestselling author of Passages and Passages in Caregiving)
