MAY Book Club - April Review (The Magic of Thinking BIG) May Introduction (How to Win Friends & Influence People)
Last month we read The Magic of Thinking Big by David J Schwartz which was a book about training your mind, your reaction to setbacks, and your general outlook on life to propel you towards your goals. I enjoyed reading the lessons in this book and tricks to train your mind. Some of the ideology is a little bit outdated but the general message remains impactful.
“Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.”
To summarize the lessons taught in this book, It all comes down to mastering our Minds, How we respond, How we talk to ourselves, and mastering our thoughts to remain positive.
Success comes down to how you think. If you think negatively, you will get negative results and if you think positively, you will get positive results. Successful people know this and use the power of belief to live more fulfilling lives.Thinking big works like magic. It will open new ways of solving problems, encourage action, help you to conquer your fears, and even earn you the respect of your friends and peers.
Thinking big begins with believing in yourself.
For the month of May I will be reading an old favourite of mine titled How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. This book was originally published during the great depression and is equally impactful during good times and booming economies. Dealing with topics such as Making a good first impression, becoming a good conversationalist and making others happy to do what you want. I have been meaning to re-read this book for awhile now and look forward to reviewing this book next month.
As always, I hope you will read along, pick up a copy and provide your feedback on the book. Thank you to everyone who has participated in our book club so far and I am always interested in hearing recommendations for book to read moving forward. You can contact me at email@example.com.
I hope you all enjoy the spring weather and find some time to get outside this month. See you next month.
