Did you know that nearly all rich and powerful people are not notably talented, educated, charming or good-looking? That they become rich and powerful only by wanting themselves to be rich and powerful?
Vision of where we want to be in life is the greatest asset we have. Without having a goal it’s difficult to score!
Quite interesting stuff from
“Its Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be”
the world’s best-selling book by Paul Arden… more less a guide of just over 100 pages of trying to make the most of ourselves in life. To make the unthinkable and the impossible possible.
Paul Arden was for decades at the top of one of the world’s most competitive industries and offers insights into diverse subjects….
For example, the value of being fired! Or why it is often better to be wrong than right?
Lots of original and logical answers to every-day’s questions. Much of these appear obvious when you read them but…. aren’t all questions easy when you know the answers already?
Looking to these birds resting on a gray chimney in the picture (one of many interesting images in Paul’s book); how do you feel? You feel your life is part of what you see looking at these birds? Or you feel free and creative?
Whether a school-leaver, self-employed, a housekeeper or a managing director, this book seems invaluable for everyone who aspires to succeed.
This is great stuff!
