When You Need To Read A Book

There are a number of books that accumulatively have changed my life, together with life’s experiences. Sometimes a particular book will provide an answer or training in a specific area; sometimes it is an on-going growth sequence. There are times when a suitable book can be a great inspiration or comfort and help to drive you forward. Here you will find a brief description of books that have had an impact on me, are they books you have read or would they help you?

Years ago there were a few books that were instrumental in my sales success:

“The One Minute Sales Person” by Spencer Johnson and Larry Wilson, they also wrote “The One Minute Manager” Their message was – Give people what they want and you will get what you want.

Tom Hopkins, “How to Master the Art of Selling”, and “The Official Guide to Success” was also a favourite. At the age of 21 he made his first million in sales – I can’t say I achieved that but it is an informative book!

A book perhaps everyone could benefit from is “How to Get Your Point Across in 30 seconds or Less, by Milo Frank.

On a personal development level, “Awaken the Giant Within” by Anthony Robbins, teaches you how to take control of your life mentally emotionally physically and financially.

“Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway” by Susanne Jeffers, offers suggestions for overcoming fear and procrastination.

“Do It! A guide to Living Your Dreams” by John Rodgers and Peter McWilliams, takes you from where you are now to what you want to achieve in your life through 6 stages and in great detail.

If You need help in believing you can, read “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy. He also cured himself of a life threatening illness, a truly inspiring, confidence building book.

“Creative Visualization” by Ronald Shone will teach you how to visualise your goals to reach them faster, I have used visualisation for years in achieving goals, and recently discovered how well this book illustrates the use of visualisation, (once I got through the first few pages).

If you are looking for an inspirational story “Ask for the Moon and Get It” by Percy Ross; through his efforts he became a philanthropist and gave away money and gifts for the rest of his life. If you want to look up his further details of his life Google his name, he gave away all his money before he died, (not too long ago) plus hundreds of bicycles to needy children because as a boy he had longed for a bike.

There are inspiring classics that still carry a powerful message like Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” and “Keys to Success” and I’m sure I could name many more I have enjoyed and found helpful.

I will just mention a couple more “Thank God It’s Monday” by Charles Cameron and Suzanne Elusorr. A book with great messages if you find yourself in work you hate. It offers advice to make your job more tolerable whilst you find a job or career that suits you. Plus a book I have recently found helpful in building my current online business “99 Ways to Flood Your Website With Traffic” by Mick Macro.

So whatever your needs are at the moment there a millions of books out there that could help or stimulate you. Maybe you feel you are in a rut and need a new hobby or career, whatever your need I wish you well and hope I have shared some reading that will interest you.
