I looked forward to receiving my very first book as a Book Review Blogger for Thomas Nelson Publishers with a great deal of excitement. I was excited because the book- OBSTACLES WELCOME by Ralph de la Vega, promised to be a good read. It turned out to be so much more than a good read.
The author,Ralph de la Vega arrived in the U.S at the age of 10. He had been separated from his family by the Cuban authorities. He was alone and frightened. He could not speak or understand the English language.
The book takes the reader on a journey of the author's experiences and challenges as a young immigrant boy to President and Chief Executive Officer of AT&T Mobility and Consumer markets.
I found many golden nuggets in this book.I will share one of them with you. For instance, the author mentioned having,"Markers on Your Personal Plan".
He writes that; "If you reach a certain point in life and you say,"I haven't accomplished everything I wanted to do",the odds are you didn't adjust your plan along the way. Even with plenty of warning,we don't always pay attention".He goes on to talk about doing what your goal requires or choosing a new goal.
This is a must read for anyone who needs motivation or needs to re-focus on what is really important in their business or personal life.
