Reading a book has changed my life... I don't think so!!!!

It was just recently, when I met a friend of mine after a long span of 3 yrs. During an interesting conversation between the two of us, she mentioned about the difficulties that she faced in her life and how her personal problem was resolved after reading an inspirational/ motivational book.

Although I was happy that her problem got resolved in whichever way, my question to her was "Can a book actually change one's life?.

My personal belief on this....I don't think so!!! If you think about it practically, there is no way an author can actually solve your problems.

Yeah agreed...reading an inspirational/ motivational book may change the perspective of how you look at things, reading may change your attitude towards life, reading may change your approach of handling things differently, but READING having the ability to transform your very existence is a big question mark?????

Some of great reading books that I recommend are The Secret - Rhonda Byrne; The Monk who sold his Ferrari - Robin Sharma; The Leadership Mantra - Robin Sharma; Marketing Warfare - Trout & Ries; The Alchemist -- Paulo Coelho

Lastly, I would like to end this article with the wonderful and inspirational HINDI dialogue that Shahrukh Khan articulates in his movie Om Shanti Om, he says, “Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko agar dil se chaho to saari kainath tumhe usse milane ki koshish me lag jaati hai..”
[English Translation; "It is said that if you want something from the bottom of your heart, then the whole universe will try to get you closer to that something that you desire.]

Truly inspirational!!!

Until my next article, as I always say, take very good care of yourself and God Bless! Would appreciate your comments and feedback and please don’t forget to leave your email address.
