Life changing books
If you truly want something the entire world conspires in helping you to achieve it”. This is one of the greatest quotes, it is an amazing way to ensure people that to achieve something the extent to which they want it can actually lead them to get it. But what usually happens with us in life is that we get demoralized very easily, we tend to lose the hold of our own rope instead of tightening its grip. Always remember, Whatever hurdles one faces in their lives, to accomplish anything that they aspire for is a trial as to how badly they want that success. If you lose hope midway then you will never get to know whether you deserved that success or not. Now this book is not just about success but also about soul searching. It is a magnificent tale of discovering yourself and finding a purpose in life. It tells one to chase their dreams no matter how unrealistic they seem.
Complaining about things around us is easy as we often forget that whatever we see around us is from our own eyes hence a reflection of us too. furthermore, the author highlights the importance of being a good human to see good.
“That’s what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”
Lastly, in this world of envious eyes. People spend quite some of their time by thinking about the people around them for this Paulo Coelho says, “If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her
If you feel drained out and low this book is a must-read! Believe me, it will change the perspective you have about life hence life-changing.
2) The Kite Runner
One of the most beautiful sayings from this book is,
We have all cheated someone, betrayed someone’s trust at some stage – sometimes knowingly, sometimes not. If you have realized that and felt the guilt, then you have the power to convert that guilt into great work. You can overcompensate by doing something fabulous for the impacted person. Guilt, therefore, can lead to greatness.
It also taught me that it is hardest to love people who only see black and white as they tend to decide themselves
what is white and what is black. We feel that someone did really wrong or sinful acts show them the right path but mocking them on their life decisions without knowing the background of their life and judging them on the bases of your own set whites(right things)and blacks(wrong things)is certainly not the right thing to do.
3) The Greatest Salesman In The World
“I will laugh and my life will be lengthened for this is the great secret of long
life and now it is mine.”
This book tells us about the importance of things like emotions of laughter and joy
as something given to only humans as the living creatures and how much
invaluable we think they are. It also has such a beautiful excerpt that I will share here which can serve as an important reminder to all of us,
“If I become overconfident I will recall my failures.
If I overindulge I will think of past hungers.
If I feel complacency I will remember my
If I enjoy moments of greatness I will remember
moments of share.
If I feel all-powerful I will try to stop the wind.
If I attain great wealth I will remember one
If I become overly proud I will remember a
moment of weakness.
If I feel my skill is unmatched I will look at
Today I will be a master of my emotions”
4) The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
One of the life changing books is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle This book is about living the moments in the present. Wherever you go, you should be sure that you are present not just physically but mentally too. If you don’t enjoy the present then you have 3 choices, change the present situation, accept it or move away from it. Sadly, We are so caught up in our daily tasks to notice the fleeting moments of life. As time passes memories are all we are left with instead of the present we failed to enjoy.
Do your best to avoid complaining. This is evidence that you are not accepting your situation in order to change it for the better. Complaining is negative in nature. It makes you turn into a victim and also makes you look like a negative person.
If the current situation does not suit you, there are only two choices. You can either speak up and point out the problem for it to be fixed or leave the situation permanently. Everything else is pointless. The choice is yours.
