Inspirational Books Both Are Useless !
Innumerable books on personality development and life management have turned the whole subject quite mundane and banal. People feel all this is quite bookish. They think such books are mere philosophical treatises and they don’t help achieve much. Many theories of such books bear no logical testimony in practical life.
Intelligent people also say that the publisher earns
by selling books, writers by royalty and the shop
of wisdom keeps working fine.
Almost 100% I agree with you that no motivational guru can change anyone’s life. No book can untangle a person’s hassles and complications. No stories of moral science can direct anyone. No advice can rectify a wrong habit. And nobody as yet has turned a millionaire by reading a book because the most significant agent in the process of gaining laurels is the person who reads that book and not the book itself or any mentor or teacher!!
If a reader doesn’t want to change, and wants to live with his shortcomings and failures, then there’s nothing that the book or the mentor can do.
If the reader doesn’t want to solve his problem, wants to be in an uncomfortable situation, wants to get more entangled in hassles, then there’s nothing that the book can do. If the reader sticks to his faulty habits, knowing fully well that a change in that habit would change his life for the better, then what the book can do?
No reader can become a millionaire or a successful person just by reading a book, as the book is not an ATM Machine where you press a button and voila!! there’s the money coming out!!!
All that the book can do is to direct you to knowing the sources of earning money and the hurdles that will come in the way. Until and unless you step out of your comfortable bed and slog and sweat it out, nothing is going to change.
This book is the menu card of a reception, accept what you like and reject what you don’t. Do not have an overdose of the contents else you would suffer from indigestion. If you attend a reception with full stomach, how is the host to be blamed for the gluttony that follows?
If you want to relish this book whole-heartedly, then cast off the "I know everything - attitude".
Open the windows of the mind and let my thoughts enter. Our mind is like a parachute, it works best when open. It is seen often that even highly inspirational thoughts are unable to stir and shake the complacency of people because they simply refuse to have an open mind, without any cobwebs.
Some intellectuals term these revolutionary thoughts as theoretical stuff, rumours, cliches, and discard them as meaningless. They make the achievements and struggles of the heroes seem quite ordinary. If you want to start the process of learning, then you have to shed this attitude. Because it is not important that you know something, what really matters is how much you ‘act’ on them.
Anger destroys relationships, everyone knows, but still…..]
An illegal activity can put you in trouble, but still…..
Driving at break neck speed can cause accidents, people
know, but still…..
Early to bed and early to rise is extremely beneficial, but still….
Womanizing is a vice, everyone knows, but still…..
No one carries his wealth after death, everyone knows,
Cigarette, tobacco, liquor, are life-threatening, but still…..
Likewise, there are thousands of things that we know but we never care for them, do not practice them and ultimately pay the price. What is more important? Just knowing it, or implementing it in a practical way ?
A person who can’t implement because he’s not aware of it is called ignorant, but a person who knows all, still neglects it, is certainly a fool. Choose your category.. ignorant, fool, or wise
I cannot claim that you would be successful immediately after reading this book, but yes, you would be definitely compelled to think and rethink.
If the thought process begins to roll, automatically the learning process will begin. I can show you the way, tell what is right and what is wrong, but ultimately its you who will have to take the initiative. It will be your decision to pick the right or the wrong.
A powerful thought turned such a student to a doctor who had failed in two subjects in class 11th and could hardly pass. Another powerful thought turned that doctor into a successful personality development trainer and a speech guru. Another important thought made the trainer a multilingual writer, whose books began getting published worldwide. Todayhe is 35, a product of all these thoughts. If an average student like me can be instigated by thoughts and achieve splendid success, then believe me, you too can do it. There is only one condition, let the thoughts enter your mind and without applying much wisdom & logics of your own, get sincerely in putting them into practice. I’m an ordinary man like you, I’m your friend…. sometimes winning, sometimes losing, falling down, again getting up, but living on hopes, and going on and on !! ############################################
