3 Keys To A Winning Lifestyle

Winning is something that is learned not something we are born with.  In order to win you have to be able to first know that you are losing.

We must then make an objective analysis concerning why it is like it is.  Just the other day, I came across a book  that was titled “How To Win” on my bookshelf.

It was perfect because I was feeling a bit rough after going through a situation with someone close to me.  It asked me questions about myself that encouraged pondering for growth.  It had me really contemplating on what it is I could do to win so to speak with myself and with my goals.

Now this book isn’t very big, it is only 140 pages but the shift in mindset that I have is insurmountable.  I have made it thought about one-quarter of the book and already I have found 3 jewels in particular that will be worth your while.

1. Facing Reality:  It is so easy to be stuck in this has where you are distorting reality from what is really out there.  Understanding that life is hard is the first once you have come to peace with that it makes you aware and less surprised when you stumble across road blocks that would normally cause you to fail.  Understand that it isn’t only hard for you but it is hard for everyone who is trying to achieve noteworthy achievement.

2. Taking Responsibility: Taking responsibility sounds so easy because people automatically assume they are.  But if things go wrong what happens?  The blame game starts, they start to talk about the government, the traffic, the weather, how people don’t like them, etc.  The list is endless but if you can realize that kind of reaction and victim-like behavior will not help you win or achieve what you want to achieve.  Instead, realize that your responsibility means yours, you can do with it what you wish and that in itself sounds much more liberating that playing the blame game.

 

3. Seeking Improvement: Seeking improvement sounds easy but without the first two you have no foundation in which to go and improve with full conviction this is because you will not take responsibility and you don’t have proper perspective as to what reality actually is.  When improving it is important that you go out of your comfort zone so that you can continue to learn new skills and learn things you did not know before.

The accidental Billionaires Review

Overall one of the easiest read I have been through it took literally 3-4 hours through 260 pages within 3 days!  The story of Mark Zuckerburg’s come up was as exciting as it comes.  From being a unknown awkward coder to an awkward coder billionaire he seemed to change little.  He had a trait that most great leaders have and that is a heavy dose of objectivity and adaptability.

During that time of the early to mid two thousands there were many students across the U.S. attempting to create a social media website in hopes of hitting it big, including several of Marks classmates.  Three students even attempted to sue him for a misunderstanding of Marks intentions towards helping them in benefit  of their similar project.  What shocked me in reading this was that  the co-founder when leaving the project for his own reasons during the middle of the maturation of Facebook, did hostile things such as cut off the bank account and even sue Mark for their “wronging behaviors” toward him.  The flow of the book

This overall review of this book was easily a 8.5/10.  I have not seen the movie yet but I hope it just as good.  The flow of the book from start to finish was as good as it could be written.  Stating everything from their self talk and moods towards themselves to the exact number of shares during the public offering.  This book is a definite must read for anyone who uses Facebook and is interested in its detailed origin.   Awesome story to read, I recommend.

This week in books…

This week I am debating on two books that I want to knock off of my reading list.  I need your help!  I am really interested in Dr. David Buss’s book on the Evolution of Desire which talks about why men and women relate with each other going back to the beginning of history on a regular basis and the other book that I am interested in is Bold which is a book on wealth and life enhancement.  Both of them are great and will be read in the next couple of weeks, but I just want to prioritize them.  Let me know what you guys think about them and if you have any feedback if  you have read one of these.

Thanks
