Can Book Clubs Provide Servant Leadership As Well As Timely Information?

"The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who will get me a book I ain't read."
Abraham Lincoln

I can see how book clubs can provide a sort of servant leadership.  A collection of people sharing ideas and discussing their opinions on topics very relevant to all of us.  Positive thinking coming from sources we haven't even met in person can lift up people dealing with depression. 

I see this web site evolving into one of those growing groups that invite people to contribute.  Or just  to check in and read the contributions.  I can see speaker reviews from people who attended events featuring outstanding individuals sharing their wisdom.  Zig Ziglar, John Maxwell, Colin Powell.  A wealth of knowledge just waiting to be absorbed.

An online book review submitted to books-empower.com from you is the kind of situational leadership that can truly go worldwide.  We are a global economy now and the world is connected in more ways than ever.  Your response to the contribution invitation at the end of these web pages might solve a challenge for someone thousands of miles away from you.


As I present more examples of contrarian investing, it may produce differing opinions.  Nothing wrong with that.  Discussion is good.  It promotes thought which produces ideas. 

Investing in gold is not something many folks have considered.  Silver investing was never on many folks radar.  Conventional wisdom has always promoted long term investing in stocks or bonds.  But times do change.  And times are really changing now.  In ways we've never seen. 

Employment opportunities and in fact employment prospects are also in for a shake up.  Change isn't always bad.  Lack of preparation is bad.  Failing to plan is bad. 

We are attempting to give you suggestions of great books to help you be aware and prepared.  But I'm sure many of you have suggestions of excellent editions that can help our readers.  Whether it be hard cover or e books.  Books do empower.


I'm wondering how far we could reach if we have scores of contributors?  I'm thinking of all of us setting a sort of book clubs record for growth in numbers of readers and more importantly for being a source of information, positive thinking and personal development. 

This is your chance to show some of that servant leadership.  The kind that genuinely intends to help other people.   All of you are most welcome to be part of this book club, as a regular contributor, or just as a reader.  All are invited.  You will make it a better experience for us.

Just below is a quote from "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson.  The chapter title is "Open Your Heart To Compassion." 

"Every day we are given hundreds of opportunities to practice compassion in action.  We can learn to be less reactive and live with more patience.

We can smile when others are serious.  We can drive our cars more carefully, pick up litter on the streets, recycle, and reduce our consumption.

We can resolve conflicts rather than create them, and we can become less judgemental and more inclusive.  When someone is aggressive, we can teach them to be more peaceful.  Instead of waiting for an example, we can be the example.

The more compassion that enters your heart, the happier and more peaceful you will become.  By knowing that you are doing your part to create a better world-whatever form that takes-you will fill any void that exists in your life, and you will begin to find the peace you are looking for."
