I like to read. And most of the times when I’m glued to my e-book reader I’m reading some kind of self-improvement book. I know that there are literally thousands of these kind of great books around there but I strongly believe that each one holds at least one or more good ideas, processes, guideances, thoughts that “click” to you. You don’t have to follow exactly what someone else does or writes but in my opinion it’s like putting together your own puzzle. You take one piece from here, another one from there and so you’re building the picture that suites YOU. And I like that process :). I also believe in constant learning and improvement – if you’re staying still then you’re actually moving backwards. Success and that happy satisfactory feeling in our lives is quite much defined with forward movement :).
I’m currently reading and soon finishing one quite thorough book on this topic called The Success Principles. I admit that I’ve been reading this quite a while since for starters it’s quite lengthy (nearly 600 pages) and secondly I’m often reading several books simultaneously. But if you find yourself with a bit of free time and the feeling to educate and improve yourself then I strongly recommend you to grab a copy! If you want to get better in touch with the content there are several summaries available online. Here’s a link to one of them.
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”
There are a lot of different online courses sites in the internet. Some more focused on certain topics, some offer a very wide array of things to learn. I have been using Shaw Academy for quite some time now and I would strongly recommend it. Shaw has quite many courses to choose from and they are constantly adding them. They are very much caring for their customers, asking for feedback, offering assistance whenever needed and are just generally very client-orientated. There is an option to choose courses separately or to become a Shaw Academy lifetime member (which I have done). If you have thought at some point that you would like to add something to your field of skills go and check them out!
There are thousands and thousands of books regarding self-improvement and I believe most of them have something good and useful stored inside. I have been reading these kind of books for about 5-6 years now when at one point I discovered that there is still so much I don’t understand about myself and that that finding and building yourself is an extremely interesting journey. I know that I’m on the right path but there’s still a long way to go. In a matter of fact I believe that this journey never ends – every day is a new opportunity to learn something new, to be open to the world.
I would strongly recommend everyone to get this book and properly work it through. As always most likely everything wont be right after your taste but there definitely will be some chapters, topics and ideas that will “click” while you read.
I have made also a short summary of this book (you can find the link below). Sadly it’s in Estonian but there are also some short recaps of this book in English. You’ll definitely find something if you search around.
The best investment is always investment in yourself!
