The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey
Long years back, I found this book in a friend’s room. He was not fond of reading, so he gave me this book on success to keep.
I had not heard about the title before. Besides, the edition was old and the paper quality was not good, the book repelled me from reading it.
But It was then when I was surfing on the internet I read the title “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”. When I explored the details I was surprised. The book I had been ignoring for a long time held a record of having over 25 million copies sold in 40 languages all around the world.
I picked up this book on success from the box where I usually kept my collection and started reading it. The old edition which was repelling me at first now becomes unputdownable.
As I completed the book on success and reviewed it again, I found there was no page left where I’ve not underlined any sentence. The author has tremendously compiled everything you need to know for a successful life.
As you read the book, you find a lot of your habits that are stopping you for a successful life. Once, you’ve found out what is pulling you to live the life you always wish to live, you can change your habit to see the transformation in your life.
I can only say this book is for the people who are striving hard to achieve their goals.

Outliers: The Story of Success, by Malcolm Gladwell
I spend my spare time browsing books in libraries and online or offline stores. I do not read every book I purchase. If the book does not interest me I throw it away. There are a few books that have compelled me to read it again and over again.
One of the books I’ve read many times is Outliers: The Story of success.
Reviews by readers or magazines or newspapers made to buy the books. Some of the praises that caught my attention were:
- A fizzingly entertaining and enlightening book. – The New York Times
- He is the best kind of writer – the kind who makes you feel genius, rather than he’s a genius. – The Times
- Gladwell is not only a storyteller; he can see what those stories tell us the lessons that contain. – Guardian
- Malcolm Gladwell is a global phenomenon… he has a genius for making everything he writes seem like an impossible adventure. – Observer
The book showed me that there is a pattern in all the success stories of the world. The author explained these pattern in such a way that I could never forget the same. One of the patterns is the “10,000-hour rule”, where he says that to be successful and a master of any skill, you need a practice of 10,000 hours.
The book is true and cut to the point. An audacious and easy read. The stories and examples used by the author can make you skim through the pages, grabbing all the points to understand the secrets behind a successful life.
If you are looking for the ways to get opportunities in your life and leaving behind your legacy you must read this book.

Like I, his father seemed to have the interest in self-improvement. At the top of the shell, I found the title “You can Win by Shiv Khera.” I settled myself at the study table and began reading this book on success.

The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch
Long story short: I borrowed this book from my college’s library before the summer vacations of June 2016. The Last Lecture made the summer vacations a memorable one. Reading books in leisure and for fun has its own pleasure.
The book is the collection of speeches delivered by professor Randy Pausch. Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, professor Pausch delivered his last lecture just before he was informed he had a few months to live. The speech was so powerful that it went viral over the internet and viewed by over millions.
The short stories in the book help the reader to understand the importance of clear vision, humor, and brilliance to achieve more success in life. Also, the book contains a remarkable and outstanding lecture “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.”
As the book is written by the author who had only a few months to live, the lectures compiled in the book are the reflection of honesty and wisdom.
Professor Pausch writes, ‘Time is all you have… and you may find one day that you have less than you think,’ which makes the reader understand the value of time.
The book was a best seller for 85 weeks as per the New York Times and 4.5 million plus copies were sold all over the US.

I’ve read this book over 5 times. One thing I’m sure about this book is every time you re-read the book you will find something new that will empower your world within.

Little Book of Stunning Success + Tools For Action Mastery by Robin Sharma
The best thing I love about the books of Robin Sharma is that he always tries to inspire the people to develop the habits of the heroes. His strategies mainly focus on enlightening the reader about the role of world-class rituals to be more successful in life.
In this Little Black Book of Success, Robin Sharma writes the same strategies but in a powerful way.
Another point I noticed in his writings is that he uses deep words and sentences — Uncommon success, remarkable victory, massive improvement, stunning life, planet class performer, master of leadership — which not only reflects the authenticity but also make a reader to take big actions in life.
If you have dreams and you are stuck somewhere on the path less traveled, this book on success will show you the right way to succeed in life.
The best lines I came across while reading the book on stunning success was: ‘The most successful human beings are wildly focused. They have a very clear picture of what it is they want to create the time they reach the end of their lives and then they have the discipline (and courage) to stick to their mission, saying “no” to everything that is not the mission critical.’
Indeed, this book will help you to overcome your weakness, take full responsibility for your dreams, rise above your circumstances and be more successful in life.
