Throughout life we come across hurdles that either stop us in our tracks or make us a better person. You can either learn these lessons by personally making mistakes and choices by yourself or you could learn from people that have already done it for themselves. To do this you could talk to people who have walked the path you want to head down or you could read about their journey in a book. Most highly successful people have documented their life and published books for the public to read. I personally have come across multiple books in my life that have shaped the way I act and the decisions I make for the future. Below I have listed the main books that have left the biggest impact in my life, I tell you this in hopes that it will also benefit you. Everyone can read a book, but how many actually take action? 

  1. SELL OR BE SOLD – Grant Cardone 

Whether you’re a salesperson, sales manager, or entrepreneur sell or be sold is your guide to effectively selling yourself, your products and your ideas to anyone! 

This was the first book I read from Grant Cardone and it couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I had just finished up at a job in warehousing, I quit on the spot something told me that enough was enough, I needed more. I quit the warehousing job and was without work for a few weeks living off my savings. During this time I reinvented myself, no longer would I be a labourer working physically hard for money, I wanted to dress nice, feel good and talk to people. One day I was watching tv and Million Dollar Listing New York came on, after watching one episode I was hooked, I purchased the whole season and watched back to back episodes. Now with my career path in mind I needed to learn to sell, after a quick google of sales and up pops Grant Cardone. His raw energy, zero filter is exactly what I needed. I followed him on all his socials, watched him on YouTube and bought his books. Sell or be sold is simple, you either sell and win or be sold you aren’t good enough and lose.

  1. THE GAME – Neil Strauss

  1. THE WAY OF THE SUPERIOR MAN – David Deida  

I keep giving this book away; I think I’ve owned thirty different copies already. I tend to pass it out to anybody, man or women, who has made a commitment to – or even has a passing interest in the art of loving. David Deida gets it – like no one I’ve ever read, and he writes about it forcefully, honestly and downright poetically. 

Like the summary of the book stats, this book by David Deida is a perfect read for men and women. This book opens your eyes to what a relationship is truly built on. After reading this my understanding to the energy between a man and women was clear and all made sense, why certain things effect men one way and a women the complete opposite.
