Everyday Greatness by Stephen R. Covey

Everyday Greatness: Inspiration for a Meaningful Life by Stephen R. Covey is a thought provoking book filled with inspirational true life stories that challenges the reader to stop and think of their lives, how they treat others, how they treat themselves, and what they would do in some unthinkable situations. Compiled from the best of Reader’s Digest archives the book is filled with amazing quotes from famous writers, celebrities and business people.

Everyday Greatness is divided into seven categories, each teaching a life lesson.

1. Searching for Meaning

2. Taking Charge

3. Starting Within

4. Creating the Dream

5. Teaming with Others

6. Overcoming Adversity

7. Blending the Pieces

Each category features 3 short storeys and some famous quotes related to the topic, followed by a wrap up by the author Stephen R. Covey. Each storey was touching, some making me laugh while others made me cry, but each left me wondering what I would do in the same situation. As a mother I loved that the book was easy to read. Set up as short stories in a coffee table book format.

I would suggest this book to anyone. I plan on keeping the book and reading it again soon.
