9780061660153: Words of Wisdom: Daily Affirmations of Faith from Run's House to Yours

Focus, Focus, Focus! You will only have significant success with something that is an obsession. Success comes from having passion and having fun creating your objective!

Words of Wisdom is a collection of inspirational aphorisms, which Rev Run sends out to his closest friends each day and which were made suddenly popular when his television show zoomed to the top of the MTV charts. Rev Run (an ordained minister) closes each episode of Run's House by reading philosophical, Christian, and inspirational books in the bathtub before penning words that inspire, encourage, and motivate. Here, available for the first time to the public, are Run's Words of Wisdom published in a gifty yet affordable format just in time for the show's second season.

All great blessings come from being at peace. When the day is over, go to sleep. Never sit up worrying about tomorrow. Work hard and let God do the rest. I always say these words at night: "I can sleep tonight because God is awake!" Relax. Rest easy.

About the Author:

Reverend Run entered the public eye in 1983 as Run, leader of the pioneering rap trio Run-DMC. Since then, his accomplishments include becoming president of Phatfarm Footwear, CEO of Run Athletics, and star of the top-rated MTV show Run's House. Recently, he released his first solo album, Distortion, on RSMG, and directed the video for his first single, "Mind on the Road." More important, he is a minister at Zoe Ministries, founded by Bishop E. Bernard Jordan in 1983. Run now spends the majority of his time at church and building the foundations of his family.

From Publishers Weekly:

This book compiles the daily affirmations and words of wisdom of Rev Run (a.k.a. Joseph Simmons), a founding member of seminal rap group Run DMC who got serious about religion after the group parted ways. Shortly thereafter, he began writing and distributing daily advice on life to friends. As word spread about Run's words of wisdom, the list of those requesting his daily messages grew to be a who's who of CEOs, politicians, sports stars and music industry heavies. The wide appeal of Run's affirmations led to the publication of this book, a showcase of Run's impossibly optimistic outlook. There is no problem or experience that a positive attitude and a smile can't overcome. This is also the book's weakness, as the heavy reliance on positive thinking seems to give short shrift to the reality of suffering; If you dress sharp, smile and have a positive outlook, life will go your way. This message will appeal to some (like the successful, high-profile subscribers to Run's daily affirmation e-mail list), but for many, this too-simple worldview will seem like a one-dimensional pep talk. Fans of Run DMC and those looking for lighter self-help fare will find the book enjoyable, but those looking for a guide for improving their lives will be unsatisfied.
