Who cannot love a book that starts “Congratulations Today is your day and ends with Your mountain is waiting So…get on your way”!

Oh The Places You’ll Go speaks of fear, failure, independence, confusion, and success. It is truly a book about life.

I still enjoy a good bedtime story, and I slip in a reading of this book at least once a month. I will never get too old for a dose of how to live life to its fullest. This is a book that is for all generations. It puts in perspective that we all have challenges. People before us have had them, we endure challenges, and those yet to come will be challenged. Nothing about having to endure hardship is new. The circle continues. Success is the same. Everytime I read this book I am excited of what the next day will have in store for me. I am inspired to meet it head on.

Did this book influence who I am? Absolutely! Oh The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss continues to inspire the person I will be. There are still mountains to move and ..

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Yes Sir Dr. Seuss Yes Sir Indeed!
