I'm on a quest to uncover the secrets of words and what they meant originally when they first surfaced...It's like peeling an onion. By breaking down words layer by layer by uncovering their pure meaning, you tap into a force that will help you find your purpose and better lead your life.
Author Kevin Hall shares many wonderful personal stories to illustrate his points. One of my favorite parts of the book was his retelling of afternoon study sessions with the Master of Words, Arthur Watkins. Arthur teaches him not only by lecture but also by example. He's a man in his nineties, yet he continues to learn a new vocabulary word every day.
Two lessons I learned from the book are that encourage means to add to someone's heart and the word fear can be thought of as an acronym for false emotions appearing real.
I highly recommend this book for anyone in need of inspiration and motivation. You can read the first chapter for free online at this link.
