I love a good book and I believe books have the power to inspire and grow the mind. From the experience of multiple realities to challenges in your perspective we can get much from a book.
Last week I put it out to the team at Results to share with you one book that has both inspired and had a positive shift in their perspective.
How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie.
My first self-development book I read, definitely hooked to read more! I read it on my kindle, it’s useful to highlight sentences and bookmark pages. It’s about people skills. It teaches you how to use conversation and body language to help people resonate with you, which ultimately leads to more success. Particularly useful as a physio trying to empower patients to take control of their rehab. But also very applicable in business or even just buying a car. More than just a book about making friends, it’s full of insights and useful tips to succeeding as a leader and making those around you feel empowered. – Kerry
5 People You Meet In Heaven – Mitch Albom
The book I think is cool is “5 people you meet in heaven”. It’s about an 85 year old amusement park worker Eddie who passes away and 5 people he meets on his way to heaven who lives ( or is dead) he has unknowingly impacted hugely during his lifetime. It shows that lives are interconnected, we all sacrifice things for others, we all have a purpose, power of love, and releasing anger and forgiveness. Sounds real deep and meaningful but awesome book, and short too (for slow readers like me…). – Em
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
“The mystical story of Santiago’s the shepherd boys quest for worldly treasure is a literary masterpiece in its own right. A book that shares a beautiful insight that we all already have the power and belief inside of us but sometimes it takes a journey for us to recognise it. A story about living your dreams and finding your why – Paul
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari – Robin Sharma
A lovely fable about Julian Mantle a high profile attorney with a crazy schedule and a set of priorities that centre around money, power, and looking good. But when Julian has a heart attack everything changes and a journey through India gives him the clarity to seek out a more meaningful existence. From mastering your mind to embracing the present, the book adopts 7 lessons of enlightened learning. I read this book in my early 20s and it really made me think about what I want from life – Krystie
The Happiness Project – Gretchen Ruben
That’s it for today
I would love to hear from you. What’s the book that has inspired you or a book that has made a positive shift on you?
