Over the years, I have read several books written by some of the world’s best selling authors. In our pursuit of personal, career and spiritual development sometimes we often overlook the importance of gaining knowledge through reading.
Some of the most successful people in the world have accomplished amazing things in life and one of the easiest way to connect with them is through their books.
During the lowest points of my life at one time, books written by two of my favorite Pastors; Joseph Prince (Singapore) and Joel Osteen (Texas, Houston) kept me going, uplifting, motivating and encouraging me with the words from their sermons and with words from our Heavenly Father in Jesus’ name. They helped me understand and accept Christ as my savior because I am unable during trying times without our Lord.
Dan Chenfeld, whom I admired and looked up to in skydiving (leisure and competitive) showed me through his book on how to overcome and triumph over adversity. He showed me in life, regardless of the challenges or obstacles we faced; there is always a way to out to bring success to pass.
Last but not least, Napoleon Hill’s “Think Rich and Grow Rich”. The title says it all.
The book shares the experiences of more than 500 of the world’s riches men who start with nothing except a couple of ideas, thoughts and a well organized plan to succeed. It shares key principals that is necessary for anyone who wants to build up their wealth towards financial independence.
I am certain these few books will help you see things differently in the way you think, do things and understand life as well as everything that evolves around us. As such, I highly recommend you get a copy of these books and spend time reading them.
I will continue to add more book titles and recommendations here, so do check back or if you may like to leave your email address here to receive updates.
