Title: How Successful People Think
Author: John Maxwell
This is one of my impulsive buys and to add up, it’s costly despite of warehouse sales in different places here in Manila. But, though I spent a couple of bucks just to buy this book, there is no single tinge of regret I ever felt when I finished it (or as I was reading it).
This book has validated some of my doubts about my habits and how I think. I am highly intellectual being and my thoughts has always been my strength – never liked sports or any physical activity because I enjoy intellectual or reflective conversation over skillful duties. And thus the reason why, I can immensely relate to this book.
Somehow, after reading this, it made me realize even more that I am at the right track and felt the same feeling 2 years ago when I read Tina Seelig’s What I Wish I Knew When I was 20 (may click the link and see my thoughts about this life changing book).
If I have to memorize one book in my lifetime, this will be my bet – It’s short, simple but is very meaningful.
“Where success is concerned, people are not measured in inches, or pounds, or college degrees, or family background; they are measured by the size of their thinking.”
“A person who knows how may always have a job, but the person who knows why will always be his boss.”
