5 Books Every Successful Person Must Read


5 Must Read Books!

Whether you are starting as a newbie or you are a successful business owner, here is a list of books you absolutely MUST read before you start your business. Even if you have many years of experience, you may still want to check out those books. Because we live in different times and technology is completely changing the way we run our businesses, we need to learn and embrace new ways of thinking. We are forced to learn how to tap into our inner potential in order to succeed in today’s economy. It’s not enough to graduate from a college or University, gain relevant experience and start your own business. It’s not enough to quit the corporate work and start your own biz by applying what you have learned while working in a “corporate America”. You must go beyond. You must learn how to think big and how to undo some of the old beliefs you have stored in your subconscious. Let’s go!

1. Blue Ocean Strategy by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne 

This book talks about how to create uncontested market space and make the competition irrelevant.

2. Book Yourself Solid by Michael Port 

In this book Michael Port talks about how to get more clients than you can handle, while working less.

3. E-squared by Pam Grout

This book is a real game-changer. Pam Grout offers funny and exciting experiments that prove your thoughts create your reality.

4. Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill 

Think And Grow Rich is a classic and must read text for every business owner. The book was first published in 1937 and offers 13 principles in the form of philosophy of personal achievement.

5. How Rich People Think by Steve Siebold 

This book is short, simple and absolutely refreshing and will teach you how rich people think. The book simply compares the mindset of the middle class to the mindset of  the rich. The strategy is simple: learn how rich people think and become rich yourself – or die trying!

    The advantage of reading is that one can get many life-times of experiences while living his own – which is almost impossible to the non-reading population. I don’t quite believe that any one book can be a game changer in anyone’s life, for the simple reason that we are never a pristine tablet, virgin mind, so that one single book can do that for us. We are always a sum of the previous (even at the time of our very first story book) of any previous story that we came in contact with so far, so our trajectory through life is rather following a feedback loop; by the time we have accumulated enough growth to move on to the next “game-changing” book, it would just happen in our lives.
    In my experience, I have been moving from one “game-changing” book to another and fell in love with many bright minds, so much so that for a long while I would keep their books not on my side table, but right beside me in my bed – which rightfully stirred my husband’s “jealousy”. But I must acknowledge that back then in 2007, after feeling stuck for quite a long moment (there is something like mind-constipation, when, maybe, after too much reading without producing anything, the mind itself gets into a “no-more” mode), three books just dropped into my lap, without my looking for them (but this usually happens with all the books I fall in love with); they just put together my ideas in an all-comprehensive structure that made tremendous sense for me. Not only they let fall in their right place all the things that I had been accumulating before, but they gave a new direction to my life, and for the first time in almost fifty years I profoundly felt it was the right one. Finally, I was where I was meant to be. Seven years on, I still abide by that.
    The three books were: J. Campbell’s Power of Myth, J. Gleick’s Chaos Theory and C.G.Jung’s Psychology and Alchemy.
