However, it will be sincere, especially in light of the fact that you will never read it. I have felt these words like a weight in my chest, until I find myself amazed that a heart can go on beating under such a burden. I love you desperately, violently, tenderly, completely. I want you in ways that I know you would find shocking. My love, you don't belong with a man like me.
In the past I've done things you wouldn't approve of, and I've done them ten times over. I have led a life of immoderate sin. As it turns out, I'm just as immoderate in love. I want to kiss every soft place of you, make you blush and faint, pleasure you until you weep, and dry every tear with my lips.
If you only knew how I crave the taste of you. I want to take you in my hands and mouth and feast on you. I want to drink wine and honey from you. I want you under me. You deserve more respect than that.

But I can't stop thinking of it. Your arms and legs around me. Your mouth, open for my kisses. I need too much of you. A lifetime of nights spent between your thighs wouldn't be enough. I want to talk with you forever. I remember every word you've ever said to me. If only I could visit you as a foreigner goes into a new country, learn the language of you, wander past all borders into every private and secret place, I would stay forever. I would become a citizen of you. You would say it's too soon to feel this way.
You would ask how I could be so certain. But some things can't be measured by time.
Blue System - Lisa Said... Lyrics
Ask me an hour from now. Ask me a month from now. A year, ten years, a lifetime. The way I love you will outlast every calendar, clock, and every toll of every bell that will ever be cast. If only you— And there it stopped. I realized today that I could never live without you, stubborn little hellion that you are. Tell me, Lillian, dearest love But I've never regretted the things I said nearly as much as the words I left unspoken. I think of you as an equal.
I respect your brains, and all those big words you like to use. But I also want to rip your clothes off and have sex with you until you scream and cry and see God. No man on earth has ever hated sunrise as I do. It's easy for us to mistake shyness for coldness, and silence for indifference. It misleads them into thinking they're entitled to know everything I do. I love every part of you, every thought and word I want you with ten different kinds of need at once. I highly recommend this book for those who like self-help books.
Apr 03, Holly rated it it was ok. To put it bluntly, Lisa Nichols is real. She shares with her readers the truth about her life and what she had to do to get to where she truly wanted and knew she had to be. She sugarcoats nothing, which is what appealed to me the most. I cannot tell you how many times I found myself rolling my eyes while reading a book that claimed it could help me and my life because the situations in the book were too small to really put my own life in the shoes of the author.
These situations vary in severity from person to person, obviously, but an author must be prepared to handle the severity of the situation that may be present in a great deal of their readers lives. I am assuming I would have enjoyed the Lisa Nichols memoir even more. May 16, Angela rated it liked it. Lisa Nichols shares her very personal failures and triumph in this book. I can only imagine how dynamic she must be in person because her strength and voice come right off the page.
Although I was unable to relate to many of the stories, having gone through nothing as dramatic in my life, I can see how developing our 'bounce-back muscles' can lead anyone to a more fulfilling life. I admit that I read straight through the book without doing the exercises the first time around but I do plan to go Lisa Nichols shares her very personal failures and triumph in this book.
I admit that I read straight through the book without doing the exercises the first time around but I do plan to go back and work through each chapter more fully to see how I can apply some of Lisa's wisdom to my life. I have a feeling that the exercises will be uncomfortable and I will feel ridiculous working through some of them but being truly honest in examining one's life is not an easy task Dec 12, Jon rated it it was amazing. This book made me take a long hard look at my life and reevaluate.
Thank you Lisa for helping me to examine my life honestly and accept things I can't change and change things I can.
1. They Married Six Weeks After They Met
Every time I say that I am through with reading self-help books, then another one falls into my lap. I think the first time I was introduced to Lisa Nichols was from watching the now cancelled show, Starting Over. It was a daytime reality show that brought several women into a house to help them let go of past defeats and truly start over on their dreams. There were women from all walks of life being helped by life coaches, psychologists and other professionals.
Iyanla Vanzant joined the show as Every time I say that I am through with reading self-help books, then another one falls into my lap. Iyanla Vanzant joined the show as a life coach and took one of the women for coaching with Nichols. She stood out as one of only two African-Americans featured Rev. Michael Beckwith was the other one; I will read his book later and that was important to me because there aren't a lot of us in the self-help game. A lot of authors use their own stories as a means of example and this one is no different.
Nichols has gone through her share of difficulties and bad experiences on the road to becoming who she is today. What stood out for me is that she grew up in southern Los Angeles formerly known as South Central and her difficulties and bad experiences are similar to ones that I and people I have known have also gone through. Nichols' books is divided into 9 steps, or "muscles". These are muscles that when developed can help to to navigate life's ups and downs more effectively. Having read a lot of books like this, I really like the muscle concept.
When you work out your physical muscles, you don't get results right away. But through diligent work they get more developed and therefore more effective. The same can be said of the 9 muscles that Lisa Nichols outlines: Lisa Nichols just doesn't give you a set of exercises that will make every thing all right, she acknowledges that it is a process to develop those "muscles" and it won't be done overnight. Jun 29, Saidi Mdala rated it it was amazing. The photo had a squirrel about to crush a nut with a pair of pliers.
It had one more thing a short caption that read: But nonetheless, she put together an awesome book with ideas and counsel that oozes, not only wisdom, but also great business ideas and models for t No Matter What — Lisa Nichols One time I saw an advert whose image has remained indelibly etched on my memory. But nonetheless, she put together an awesome book with ideas and counsel that oozes, not only wisdom, but also great business ideas and models for the many young people I see going about starting their motivational speaking careers the wrong way.
Sure enough, like I tell them when they ask for my advice regarding the quick fix route: Now, I think I have something more solid and way better. If you want to become a motivational speaker and make a living out of it: Lisa Nichols went through it all. She was born black and was not the kid that turned heads when she happened down the road.

Then she started school when desegregation was at its experimental stage in the USA. Clearly, this coach resolved that the young skinny black girl could only be good for running track — even when she had torn a tendon and needed some slack. Either she disintegrated on the pitch or the scholarship would be cancelled.

She took the high way and college went down the drain. But not without dire consequences — the kind that Lisa had not anticipated. In America, not having a college education is a curse. One big curse that could not be fixed by attending some inferior programme at a community college, that serves, more or less as a half-way house to gangsterism, prison and sure death or some lay job with a welfare eventuality. That was bad for this business.
Jobless and living in commune, she could hardly pull her weight and was becoming a burden on the other housemates.
The Secrets of Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet's Epic Love Story
Instead of pulling her weight, she chooses to see the world as conspiring to let her down and keep her there. And she does what many people who take recourse to this lame trick do: And all the while the Universe is closely watching her and probably thinking: One day, in between her sulking, she turns the TV on and the Universe hits her with a strong message that simply said: Nobody owes you anything.
It was a nicely packaged anecdote and delivered by none other Les Brown! Lisa snapped out of her misery and decided to own her problems so she could do something about them. Normally, when this happens, the rest as they say becomes history and people go on to make it big in the area of motivational speaking and use their story as a reference point: This is the ordinary model and of course Lisa was also sexually molested when she was only five! In trying to Band-Aid her inferiority complex and poor self-esteem Lisa screws up her life, not once, not twice, but several times. And she almost sacrifices everything in the process.
And then when all is done and she receives her T-shirt for being a serial screw up, Lisa has a child whose father ends up in prison. Her story simply says, among many other things: No Matter What happens, life only gets better. But it sure as hell can get so messed up; the faint hearted could easily leap off a cliff, effectively slapping a permanent solution to a temporary problem. So before you leap or do anything silly, I implore you to read this book first.
Life is too precious to not fight one more time and Lisa will show you how to do so in this book. Turning to business, Lisa showed me one more thing: If you are interested in this secret: Lisa has done her part — the larger one, no doubt: I have complemented this by reading her book and then sharing this review in which I have tried my best to make you very anxious to know about this game changing model.
Lastly, I would like to dedicate this review to a driven young woman who first mentioned Lisa Nichols to me. I know you need it right now, wherever you are.

Her new book "No Matter What!: Mar 07, Kimberly Morghan rated it really liked it. This was a great motivational book. The author shows how she developed the ability to overcome hardship and find her path, and she gives many exercises to help the reader to do the same.
Since it was a library book, I didn't have enough time to work through the exercises, but I can see their power and will probably buy a copy so I have more time to reread and work with the book. Aug 02, Chysom rated it really liked it. A very good personal development book. I few of the ideas I got really helped me become a better person. Oct 07, Marty rated it it was amazing. Very open and honest book. An amazing lady and an amazing story. This book offers a very candid approach to changing your life.
My favorite self help so far. Feb 21, Kat rated it really liked it. I can honestly say I did benefit from this book. The activities at the end of the chapters were very helpful. They were hands on and make you reflect on different areas of your spirit that need work. Lisa sounds like she would be a good speaker. The only thing I did not like was her storytelling. I really dont like when authors story tell word for word. How do you know exactly what you said and what someone said to you when you were 5 years old?
She does a lot of exact dialogue from past experie I can honestly say I did benefit from this book.
Lisa Said... Lyrics
She does a lot of exact dialogue from past experiences and it irritated me. I wish she could've found a better way to tie her experiences in with the chapters in the book. The perfect word for word recounts just made me wonder just how much of her experiences were true and what stories did she just put together because they sound nice. I would already know the outcome when she started and she would just drag it out trying to lead up to what happened but the way she explained it, you could already tell how it was going to end.
