There’s a saying that goes thus: Do not tell the world your dream, show it. In as much as I find the statement quite interesting, I also think there’s something right and wrong about it.

It is right in the sense that most persons are not interested in listening to your dreams, so why tell them? They are only interested in seeing you making your dreams a reality, then they might care!

Have you read any of those books or articles that say the only path to happiness or success is by working for yourself and being independent?

Think Big

I remembered some years ago when I first read the book, “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, I loved most of the ideas that were shared in the book. Some of the ideas helped shape my early life.

The book also opened up my mind and made me search for more inspiration and success books to read. Ever since then, I have read several inspirational and success books, some of which include:

  • Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter
  • The Law of Success by Napoleon Hill
  • The Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter
  • Guide to Investing by Robert Kiyosaki
  • Why Ask Why by John Mason
  • Why We Want You to Be Rich by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki

And some other good books…

  • Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman
  • The Art and Skill of Successful Negotiation by John Ilich

Reading good books is one of my key secrets to success. The more I read, the more I learn and the more I think better....   Read the Full Article>>>

  • Our best writers: One great piece of content
  • Our big investors: One big deal that paid off well
  • Our best-selling authors: One best-selling book
  • Our top footballers: One successful career move or one big trophy

We are living in a world of projects. Some are mega while some are small projects. Some are simple while some are complex projects. If you are a project manager, you have the capability of delivering that one successful project that will launch your life and career into the spotlight. It could be a small or big project. However, the billion pound question is, “What will that one successfully delivered life-changing project be?”...   Read the Full Article>>>
