Reading motivational books could yet help you to maintain focus on a goal provided you put the ideas communicated therein into practice. There appears to be a force that drives you to act without reserving any part of your 'original'- a force that brings out the 'you in you' as you begin to move towards actualizing set goals. Five (5) of the best motivational books are hereby briefly discussed:
- Shoe Dog: Get inspired by this memoir written by Phil Knight who related what it takes to build and live a dream even when it does seem that nothing would work. And in case you don't know; Phil Knight was the brain behind the creation of Nike.
- "Grit" by Angela Duckworth: It takes grit to be counted among the goal getters in our world today [as it had always been]. This book is hinged upon how you can engage the mindset in accomplishing your set goals. Duckworth also shed light on the role persistence plays in one's 'journey to success.
- "Smarter, Faster, Better" by Charles Duhigg In a dynamic world such as ours, this book might be one of those items you need to read in order to sync with the development taking place around you. Most notably, the author pinpoints eight (8) concepts that would help an individual to be more productive in his/her life's ordeal.
- Secrets of the World Class by Steve Siebold The Secrets of the World Class will challenge you to give up those things that are holding you back, and become a better 'you'. It is quite informative and even wholesome as the author makes links to relevant learning resources available for the readers' further exploration.
- Talent is overrated by Geoff Colvin This is another motivational piece that stops you from looking down on yourself, and start breaking new grounds- it takes you through some sort of rebirth. The author stressed the need for deliberate practice; he went on to buttress his point by using the lives of some celebrated achievers [like Warren Buffet, Tiger Wood, Mozart...] as case studies.
