As I was sitting here pondering what to write about on Motivational Monday, I thought about what motivates me to be the best. I then started to think about why anyone would not want to be the best at what they do?
Thinking back, I remember when I was younger and the weekend was the only thing I looked forward to. I was the typical Gen-X youth. To some degree thinking I was dealt a bad hand, that somehow the world owed me more. I then stumbled on to the book, "Think and Grow Rich" by Dr Napoleon Hill. Reading his book was an eye-opening experience for me. It taught me too many lessons to list here. I recommend it to everyone I meet. It is an older book that you can buy used from amazon for about two dollars plus shipping.
How it helped me find the motivation to take charge of my own life, and do all I could do to be a useful person on this earth was amazing. After reading "Think and Grow Rich", I continued to read all of Dr Hill's books. Those books led me to other books and my appetite for reading and increasing my specialized knowledge grew and grew!
I thought it would be interesting to find out what books have opened other Active Rainer's eyes. If there is a special book on self-improvement that changed your life I would love for you to comment about it.
Here's to a profitable week!
