Three right books for a RIGHT attitude


Ever known a person capable of ruining everything with their attitude? And half the time they don’t even know they did?

In this video Bob Proctor of the Proctor Gallagher Institute gives an interesting insight into paradigms, which are a multitude of attitudes that are fixed in the subconscious mind. Based on thinking, changing and achieving, these three books could serve as a stepping stone for success journey.

Unequivocally, attitude plays a major role in our accomplishments, either good or bad. As John C. Maxwell puts it, “your attitude more than our aptitude will determine your altitude”. Attitudes originate from thoughts, they manifest into activities which provide either intended or unintended results.

1. As a man thinketh

James Allen, 1902. This book paints a vivid picture about how thinking affects a person’s life in it’s entirety. George Bernard Shaw said, “I don’t believe in circumstances” and within this book James Allen makes us understand that circumstances don’t make a person, but reveals him/her. This book divulges our personal achievements or successes from a thinking point of view.

Modern psychology tells us that 95% of our actions are habitual, in order words we almost never think before we act. This read is one I will call a marvelous piece of condensed brilliance since it encompasses the A to Z of thinking. From this book:

“ A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind”.

2. Who moved my cheese: An A-mazing way to deal with change in your work and in your life

Spencer Johnson, MD, 1998. Change is ironically one of the constants in life. Change may not result in growth, however without change grow may not occur. In this book, the author teaches about how to deal with change.

Dr. Spencer Johnson used a story with four imaginary characters intended to represent the simple and the complex parts of ourselves, regardless of our age, gender, race or nationality. These parts sometimes sniff change early, hurry into action, deny and resist change for fear it will lead to something worse or learn to adapt in time when we see change can lead to something better.

Regardless of which selection we make, it is to find our way in changing times. In life there are only choices, you either choose to do or not to do. Not choosing to change is in itself a decision to change for better or for worse.

3. Acres of diamonds: All Good Things Are Possible, Right Where You Are, and Now!

Russell H. Conwell, 1901. Are you the kind of person who believes they need some ideal circumstance not present where they are to make things happen? Do you blame everything around you for being the contributing factor to your demise in an aspect of life?

Russell Conwell in this book enlightens us about the fact that we have a multitude of opportunities around us. Before, I used to think if I was going to become wealthy, it would take going to the United States of America and back. Until my Sister-in-law told me stories about a couple of people who had been there several years and back without a pin to knit torn clothes or a bowl to beg for pennies.

Read this book and you’ll soon realize that you are standing in the middle of your own acres of diamond.
