Peaks and Valleys by Dr. Johnson Spencer
Peaks and Valleys is a story of a young man who lives unhappily in a valley until he meets an old man who lives on a peak, and it changes his work and life forever. Initially, the young man does not realize he is talking with one of the most peaceful and successful people in the world. However, through a series of conversations and experiences that occur up on peaks and down in valleys, the young man comes to make some startling discoveries. Eventually, he comes to understand how he can use the old man’s remarkable principles and practical tools in good and bad times and becomes more calm and successful himself. Now you can take a similar journey through the story and use what you find to your advantage in your own work and life. [Goodreads.com]
Peaks and Valleys is a wonderful book. A very quick read – I read it over one of my lunch hours. I have always liked Who Moved My Cheese and repeatedly had brought that book out to re-read when I am feeling a little stuck. Peaks and Valleys encourages me to look at things differently – I may get stuck in a valley occasionally, but it all depends on how I look at it. What maybe a valley, could actually be a peak – it’s all in my focus. I encourage everyone to read it and can’t wait to start sharing it with my family – Bill @Goodreads.com
