The information in some books is as relevant today as it was decades ago. With all the talk of recession and job losses it is very easy to start getting caught up in what the system wants you to believe and concentrate on. I do my best to listen to as little of the news as possible on tv or in the papers and instead prefer to fill my mind with positive upbeat messages. I was looking through my library the other day and came across some timeless classics such as Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill and The Success System That Never Fails: The Science of Success Principles by W. Clement Stone. Both these books have spurred millions of people on to achieve success in their chosen fields of endeavour. Think and Grow Rich has probably influenced more millionaires than any other and continues to do so today. If you have not read it I highly recommend you splash out a fiver and buy a copy. It will probably be one of the most well thumbed books in your collection.
Another thing I've noticed about books is that most successful people have them in abundance. There again most successful people are the ones who are continually learning, it's often the people who don't really need to who show up at seminars and lectures, buy CD and DVD programs and generally continue to develop themselves throught their lifetime.
Isn't that interesting?
