The most common question thrown at me is : what books do you recommend? what books helped you grow, become better, win etc., so here goes..
Some books change your life forever.. PULLING YOUR OWN STRINGS… is one of the books which did this to me. I am not sure how many years (20?) back I came across this book.. but all I remember is that I got in my hand when i needed it most..when i had no control over my life. This book has been my companion for many years..and i have gifted it to many. I still remember a line from the books which says..
“Mediocrity finds safety in standardization” So, dont compare and follow others… Be a non-conformist

But again my intent is not to preach. My blog just speaks my mind. Nothing more nothing less. Though many a times some questions are thought provoking and i do subject it on the blog.
The third question actually got me thinking, not on the point if i follow but on “from when do i follow” and “If i follow them ALWAYS”. Was i this from the day i remember myself? When did i learn those qualities which rule my life. Where did i learn them. Interesting..i think i should do a separate post on this…when did the small little me become ME? how?
