I almost didn’t buy this book, because I thought it was a romance novel.  I am not a fan of romance novels, but the name intrigued me.  I decide to give it a try and I am really glad that I did.

The book is about a CEO of a local company that hires a woman to pretend to be his girlfriend, so his family would stop commenting on his lack of a love life.  Though a series of weird circumstances.  They accidentally get married.  However, throughout the story they start to get to know each other and fall in love.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  It was funny and heart warming at the same time.

 

Who Controls You?

Who controls you?  Do you have an internal or an external locus of control?

Those who believe outside forces completely determine what will happen to them, have an external locus of control.  They view obstacles as insurmountable and believe they are unable to change their life circumstances.

Those who believe they can impact their life through their own actions, have an internal locus of control.  They are not immune to unfortunate  events, trauma, or other obstacles.  However, they focus on finding solutions to their problems.

It is important to notice, bad things happen to people in both groups.  The difference is in how they view negative events and in how they deal with the problems created by those events.
