One of my coaches suggested I read a couple of books and without a doubt they have made am impression on me.
One is by Napoleon Hill, but it is not “Think and Grow Rich” it is his recently published work called “Outwitting the Devil” (2011). The other book is “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.
I’m not going to give you a book report on these titles, but I will give you some idea how some of the messages in these profound writings are resonating with me.
In my assessment, each book, one is non-fiction and the other is fiction, sets out to convey the idea that while your are pursuing your goals in life you need to be connected to your “definite purpose” or your “personal legacy.” Through this process, you will ultimately be able to make better sense out of the seemingly irrational phases of life your have experienced thus far and make more accurate assessments on how you should proceed.
If you’ve been following me with one eye blind, you will know that I’ve been pursuing a way to free myself from the life in a cubicle. While nothing what I would consider earth-shattering from the outside has occurred in my life recently, a number “events” are leading me to spend more time considering the process of “connecting the dots” of my life to best evaluate how I should best approach the next phase of my professional pursuits and family responsibilities.
That’s all I can give you right now. It is not a rah-rah message, but it is current, it is real, and it’s all I have time for.
