Here are three good books to help you succeed.
1. The Power of Now by Ekhart Tole. When I read this, I was blown away. I couldn’t understand how simplistic the message was, but at the same time how detailed and accurate the whole book was. We as a whole human race need to move toward this power, and I actually felt the power. I felt that I needed to exercise that power right now, and that others around me were going to do that once they read this book. It’s about freeing yourself of pain. One of the quotes in the book was “the more you are able to honor and accept the now, the more you are free of pain of suffering, and free of the egoic mind.” What we need to do is just acknowledge that it’s important
to focus on making the now the main priority in your life. When we’re trying to access the power of now, there is a reality that there’s going to be painful emotions. We need to understand that and we need to use this pain experience throughout our lives.We need to actually look at the pain, and by acknowledging it and staring at it, we accept the fact that it exists without trying to identify or even judge it. It will eventually lose its power over you. The Power of Now is a powerful book and has helped millions of people all around the world.
2. Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert E. Kowalski. Kowalski came from an island. His father was a really sensible guy and he was reserved with his wealth. He had a friend’s dad who was a very rich guy with a different background all together. He compared this man to his rich dad. Kowalski was born in 1947. He was a Japanese-American investor and a businessman, an author, a motivational speaker, and a literary artist and activist. From the book, “Having two dads offered me the choice of contrasting points of view, one of a richman and one of a poor man.” Kowalski was telling us that the love of money is not is the root of all evil, and this is what
his father would have told him. “There is a difference between being poor and being
broke.” The chasm between the two dads and the two different ways of thinking is really
interesting, and he kind of sprinkles that in throughout the book within his
own experiences of life, and his own experience of how he invested.
3. Sink and Grow Yourself Rich by Napoleon Hill. It was written in 1937. This is a classic book for actually helping you succeed and just get off your butt and make money. It gives us
all these ways of how we can sink first and then grow rich. It’s one of the universally recognized personal development masterpieces. It’s so simple, and it sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. The whole philosophy centers around the idea that success in any way in life can actually be achieved through visualization and imagination. Our thoughts can actually make us succeed, acheive anything that you want so long as your mind deems it possible. It’s going to give you an outline of your whole life, because you can begin to control your thoughts, and that
propels itself into action.
