I hope you added the other books I mentioned previously to your reading list. They have provided great value to my life and many others that I personally know. It’s important to constantly feed the brain with good information to keep your focus in the right direction.
Today I wanted to add a few more to the list. I’m constantly reading or listening to something. I’m always purchasing a new book from Amazon and adding it to my personal library. A quote that always stuck with me is “Leaders are readers”. It’s so true, look at any successful person and you’ll find that they usually are always reading something that adds value to their life.
Think & Grown Rich – It Will Change Your Life
The next book I wanted to share with you is “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. This book is a must read by anyone that is looking to understand the laws of the Universe, and to effectively use them in their life. Napoleon Hill interviewed many of the top minds in the world. They were also some of the most successful business people in the world. He then shared what he discovered about what they thought and what they believed in.
He interviewed Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie and many other greats from our history. Imagine being able to sit with Henry Ford or Andrew Carnegie and find out what their secret was to creating such a large fortune for themselves. That’s exactly what it’s like when you read this book. You get to hear what they’re doing differently than the average Joe and Mary.
This book was first published back in 1937 and sold over 20 million copies during the Great Depression. Think & Grow Rich has gone on to sell over 70 million copies. It’s looked at as the “big daddy” of personal development books. This book has changed the way I look at everything. Napoleon Hill was one of the first people to start talking about the power of thought and energy vibration.
Hill was looked at as very strange back when the book first published because hardly anyone was a believer in the philosophy that he spoke of. He was looked at as more of a “kook” since the information was a little too far out there for the majority of people. It amazes me that the same words he wrote so many years ago still pertains to today. If you haven’t read this book yet, put it on the top of the list and get to reading it. It will change your life!
The Magic of Thinking Big – David Schwartz
The next book that I want to suggest to you is “The Magic Of Thinking Big” by David Schwartz. You just have to love the title of this book. I believe that the majority of people in the world think way too small. It’s probably because of our culture and how our society has been brought up.
This book really digs into how to expand your thinking and get yourself to think much bigger and larger. If you believe that what you think creates what shows up in your life, why not think big? We have total choice of what we think, why not think bigger for ourselves. David Schwartz gives a very simple explanation on how to apply this to your own life.
After reading Think & Grow Rich, if you buy into the philosophy that your thoughts create your life, then the concepts in The Magic Of Thinking Big will give you the tools you need to create the life of your desire. You’ll be able to create a life of happiness, prosperity, love and all of the other things that you desire to have in your lifetime.
A gave this book to a buddy who was trying to figure out where to go in his life. Not soon after he created http://www.mvlimo.com, a limo company, and has built a great successful business for himself. He said without reading this book it would have never happened because he was very limited previously in his thinking. The book helped him to expand his mindset and have a much broader thinking for what he wanted for himself.
Add both of those books to your library as they will make a huge difference in your life… and pass them on to others. If you have any books that you’d like to recommend to others, contact me and let us share it with the community here.
Thanks for reading and I will see you on the next blog post.
