When I hear the word book, I could feel the words, the weight, the progression, the knowledge, the education, and the addiction to read. Exactly two years before I was sitting with my Coach and he said me this quote by Jim Rohn “Poor people have big TVs. Rich People have big libraries.” And he explained to me the importance of reading book, I still remember him saying me that sentence. Since that day, reading books became my lifestyle. I start my day by reading at least 4-5 pages. And it helped me develop my mindset; and enhance my thinking skills. A book is an endless knowledge; it doesn’t allow emotions to influence your growth.
I have read many books so far but the below five books have helped me evolve my life:
Finding my virginity by Richard Branson
Losing My Virginity is the autobiography of self-made businessman Richard Branson. He details his lucrative adventures, beginning with dropping out of school, founding a record label, and crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a speedboat. In essence, the book is about how cleverness, determination, and an adventurous mindset played a role in the making of one of the richest men on earth. The story about how he purchased the Necker Island is quite interesting and inspiring. It made me believe that determination, passion, and faith will help you reach your goal.
The Magic book by Rhonda Byrne
In The Magic, Rhonda Byrne reveals life-changing knowledge upon the world. Then she takes us on an incredible 28 days life-changing journey. She teaches how to apply this knowledge in your everyday life. Every morning when I wake up, I start counting my blessings by writing it down in my gratitude journal. Millions of people sleep every night but do you guys know that 151,600 people die each day. So when I arise in the morning, I give thanks to the morning light, for a new day and strength. I give thanks for the food and joy of living. The money I had throughout my life, for the shelter because most of the poor people still sleep on roads, my family, my friends, my mentors. I show my gratitude for the sun, the water that I drink, the air that I breathe because without any of them I wouldn’t be alive.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This book was published in 1937, during the Great Depression, and if the people who suffered during that time had read this book their lives might have been better. It is really about convincing yourself to become wealthy. It outlines the steps you need to take and the steps you need to avoid. Most people do not succeed until they are older. Most success does not come until after you are 40 years old. Edison & Carnegie were past the age of 40 when they made their fortune. In the below link I have shared two amazing learnings from this book. It’s worth reading it!

THE MAN WHO “THOUGHT” HIS WAY INTO PARTNERSHIP WITH THOMAS A. EDISON. .. The story of Edwin C Barnes always inspires me. Let's take a look at how Barnes achieved success: .. 1. He wanted to be Edison's business partner more than anything else. 2. He created a plan to achieve that purpose. 3. He burned his ships at the shore. 4. He stood by his desire until it became the dominating obsession of his life, and finally, a fact. .. Two difficulties stood in his way. He did not know Mr. Edison, and he did not have enough money to pay his railroad fare to Orange, New Jersey. These difficulties were sufficient to have discouraged the majority of them from making any attempt to carry out the desire. Barnes had nothing to start with, except the capacity to know what he wanted and determination to stand that desire until he realized it. Truly thoughts are things and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence and a BURNING DESIRE for their translation into riches. He said, ‘’There is but ONE thing in his world that I am determined to have, and that is a business association with Thomas A Edison. I will burn all the bridges behind me, and stake my ENTIRE FUTURE on my ability to get what I want’’. He left himself no possible way of retreat. He had to win or perish. Barnes had earned something more than money. He had earned definite knowledge that with a very clear purpose, he could turn his burning desire into reality. .. “Made by Edison and installed by Barnes.” That is all there is to Barnes story of success!! . . . . . . . #desire #determination #Edwin.C.Barnes #thinkandgrowrich #believe #empoweroneanother #life#happiness #amazing #strength #dominating #obsession#faith #truth #blessed#courage #peace#entrepreneur #keepgoing #positivity #fearless #successful
As a Man Thinketh by James Allen
It is like a pocket book that will help you to help yourself. It shows how, in his own thought-world, each man holds the key to every condition, good or bad, that enters into his life, and that, by working patiently and intelligently upon his thoughts, he may remake his life, and transform his circumstances.
