Everyone could use a little inspiration once in awhile; some wise words to help with motivation and the realization of goals. Journeys On The Edge: Living A Life That Matters by Walt Hampton is just that: inspirational and motivational.

Journeys On The Edge is basically a simple guide to help the reader figure out how to successfully live in a way that is personally fulfilling. In each section of his book, Hampton uses stories of his real life adventures to illustrate his point. He also quotes from others quite extensively for the same reason.

The sections of the book include: remembering/realizing exactly what your dreams are, the importance of taking the first step and moving forward from there, balancing our dreams with our very real responsibilities, focusing on that which is truly important while being sure to give ourselves the quiet and space we need to focus on realizing our dreams, and committing to make our dreams a reality.

Journeys On The Edge is an easy, yet thought-provoking read. A few chapters in, I realized that there were several points I’d want to re-visit later. At that point I found a highlighter marker and started over. The book is a great reference for times when a little inspiration and motivation could come in handy.
