If you have any tough relationships, this is the book for you! The Kindness Challenge by Shaunti Feldhahn gives practical tools and advice that is substantiated by her research. She reveals three simple steps to make any relationship better: nix the negatives, practice praise and carry out kindness.
For each of these three steps, she breaks them down into smaller steps that you can put into practice immediately. For example, to carry out kindness, she suggests: perform small acts of service, give or share something precious to you, and be fully present and enter their world.
The book is filled with examples from her research with real life stories. I found myself shaking my head, thinking, yes, I can relate to that and I have had that happen in my life. The difference is that now, her book gave me solutions to some difficult relationship issues.
The book is written in three parts. Part One shows why kindness, above all other character traits is important for thriving in life, work and relationships. Part Two defines the three elements of kindness and the 30-Day Kindness Challenge so you can identify your own individual patterns of kindness. Part Three you’ll find specific tools to help put kindness into practice, in the form of daily tips.
The 30-Day Kindness Challenge can easily be instituted into your life. All you need is the commitment and Shaunti Feldhahn provides the rest. Give it a try!
