Let’s face it, success is something everyone wishes to obtain in this world. If success is something that you seek, like most of us, you might want to take a closer look at this list of books that some very successful entrepreneurs revealed that may have changed their lives. Some of the titles include, the tower and the bridge as well as Life of Pi.
- Book: Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business Book by John Mackey and Rajendra Sisodia. It raises interesting questions about how the private sector should be spending their money and how they should be earning their money. It all depends on the age and stage of your company and what commitment and obligation you should have to giving back.
- Book: The Long Walk: The True Story Of A Trek To Freedom is one of the most amazing, heroic stories of this or any other time. It tells the story of author Slavomir Rawicz, a Polish soldier who is imprisoned by the Soviets after World War II. To gain his freedom, Rawicz goes on a remarkable journey through the frozen Siberian tundra, the Gobi desert, the Himalayan Mountains and to India. The Long Walk is about everyday human struggle, overcoming obstacles and achieving the impossible. That’s why I keep 10 copies on my desk to give away at any moment.
- Book: Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time by Brigid Schulte. It outlines the current issues around self worth and approach to time, but also gender roles and pursuit of work-life balance.
“Everything from being inspired to launch a startup to pivoting a business model and altering how to approach life can come from reading books.”
