While I enjoy 24th spring of my life, it witnesses my reading count of 51! (well honestly, I didn’t keep a count but I guess I must have read at least 50 books since I started the hobby way back in the year 2000 when I was in class 8; yeah, it’s been 10 yrs now)
“Books are man’s best friends”, “We can’t experience everything ourselves, so we try to learn more about life by reading” I remember hearing all this in school but easier said than done, those were just words for most of them (not really sure how many of them followed). The guy who really got me into reading had different way to put it, he talked about his passion and how books changed his view towards the world; the way he lived the books and his unprejudiced thinking made him stand apart. That got my Green Hat thinking and made my join the club!
Books helps us think big, realize the power of our minds, think about everything from different perspective, have a positive attitude towards life. It lets us see the bigger picture of life! The other day my friend was in a kind of interviewing mood and following questions were thrown:
Q:What Kind of Books do You read?
A: Books that enables us think differently about the same situations; which talk about mind, imagination, dreams, habits, thinking etc. Some call it non-fiction or self help-books but I like to call them “books that changes the way we think.”
Q: So you like Robin Sharma?
A: I certainly have read his books and they are awesome but he is not my favorite author.
Q: Which is your favorite book?
A: “the power of your subconscious mind” tops the list however “the alchemist” and “the magic of thinking big” are close as well.
Q: How does it help in long-term?
A: like personality, attitude and thinking develops over a period of time and didn’t they say “attitude determines the altitude.”
Q: If you were to recommend just 1 book, what would that be?
A:The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy.
Q: Can you sum up your 10 years’ experience with books?
A:They can change your life, it did mine!
