Is life really so complicated? Ask happy and successful
people this question and youâ€™re likely to hear that, in its
essence, life is really quite simple. In these pages, Newt
Gingrich and his daughter Jackie Gingrich Cushmanâ€“with the
help of prominent people they know and admire, such as Bill
Clinton, Rush Limbaugh, Mary Matalin, and David Petraeusâ€“
show how, by following just five principles, you can live
life to its fullest:
â€˘ Dream Big Like Walt Disney, who shared the magic kingdom
of his imagination with millions, or like Jackieâ€™s sister,
Kathy, who didnâ€™t let a severe case of rheumatoid arthritis
stop her from completing a walking marathon, see where your
dreams can take you.
â€˘ Work Hard As Jackie points out in her recollections of
her dadâ€™s early political career, working hard can be a
surprising source of energy, and adopting an attitude of
cheerful persistence will help you reach your goal.
â€˘ Learn Every Day The key is to re- member that learning is
a reciprocal process. You canâ€™t be passive; you must be
engaged. Come along on a visit to the acclaimed Ron Clark
Academy in Atlanta to see how this principle works in
â€˘ Enjoy Life And whatâ€™s the best way to do that? From the
wisdom of the ancient philosophers to information from the
latest scientific studies, the answer is the same: Be
grateful for all your blessings and do something every day
to show compassion and generosity to others.
â€˘ Be True to Yourself It sounds easy, but itâ€™s the hardest
principle to live by. Discover what people from William
Shakespeare to Henrik Ibsen to John P. Abizaid have had to
say about this touchstone for an honest life.
With these inspiring and memorable words of wisdom, Newt
and Jackie have given us a book to treasure for a lifetime.
