Little description: One month to a great relationship…with anyone!
Think of your toughest relationship. Think of a relationship that is good but could be great. Think of a group of people that drives you nuts. You want to show more kindness and generosity, but sometimes you’re just tired, stretched, and frustrated. Besides, would small actions make that big a difference? Yes!
After years of extensive research, Shaunti Feldhahn has concluded that kindness is a superpower. It can change any relationship, make your life easier and better, and transform our culture. But how does it work? And how can you show kindness when you don’t feel like it?
In The Kindness Challenge, Shaunti explores….
* Three simple acts that make all the difference in any relationship (with a spouse, child, co-worker, brother-in-law…)
* Whether kindness is ever the wrong approach
* The seven ways you may be unkind and never realize it
* Eight types of kindness—and which might be the best fit for you
* Ten sneaky obstacles that get in the way of giving praise
* Practical ways to persevere when kindness is tough
* How kindness in marriage leads to benefits in the bedroom (yes, really!)

My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5
All the summary of the book comes in two words… be kind.
Be kind every moment, especially in the times of frustration, waiting, patience testing, intense scratching and hissing… Yeah, you know what I am talking about! Those times…
This book is designed to keep it as the sort of like a journal and notebook. Every day has the particular subject and instructions. But you also encouraged to write your own observations and your participation through out the process of becoming kind. Keep track of this challenge to keep it as the score board, a map and a living prove of your journey.
Most points I knew before, but I didn’t practiced them a lot lately. Sometimes I was lame in showing the kindness to other. I admit I was self-centered. This would be a great challenge to do!
