I Wish I’d Never Been Born… (#044)

Well, that’s what George Bailey said to Clarence after getting out of the water in “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

I just watched this movie over the weekend, and it got me thinking. I came up with a list of 10 lessons I got from the movie. I probably could have gotten more, but 10 is more than enough to think about.

My book, “Leave Nothing Undone: 13 Key Lessons from the Life of Joshua,” is currently on sale for $2.99 on Amazon. Don’t pass up this opportunity to get your copy! Here’s what some are saying:

Joshua Rivers (JR) has done a masterful job of weaving 13 life and leadership lessons from the life of another man in history with the same name. He also draws parallels in his own life and experience as well as application areas that anyone wanting to develop further as a leader would benefit from learning. – Camden Ross

If you are looking for an in-depth biblical study, this is not the book for you. If you want to apply lessons from Joshua’s life to your own, order this book!  - Nick

I walked away with a knowledge that God has a plan for me, what I need to do to enable him to use me, and what a wonderful example Joshua. – Dave Jackson

In a day when it’s acceptable to blame everyone else for one’s problems and to see oneself as a victim of circumstances, this book was refreshing to read. Anyone looking for a great thought-provoking book of lessons from the life of one of the greatest leaders in all of history, would be wise to read this book. - Clarinetgal
