Book Recommendations

Reading List: Life Changers

There are many great books you should read. But it's usually just a handful that have the capacity to change the arc of your life. This is my list of life changers.

Life Changing Books

I keep those recommendations very tight, as those should be reads that chance, or have changed the arc of your life.

1. Long Walk To Freedom - Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, one of the he greatest freedom fighters of the 20th century had the biggest impact on my life, via his autobiography 'Long Walk To Freedom'.

Nelson Mandela, Long Walk To Freedom.

Via this book, I learned to admire a level of calm & patience I did not know before.

How Nelson Mandela was able to stay composed, and inspired to continue on a fight for the people, while experiencing agonizing hardship and family deaths while in-prisoned put my life, and probably anyone else's into perspective.

I learned humility, patience, acceptance and a very simple fact: 'Don't complain about what life throws at you'. Nelson did not complain, he moved forward. And if he was able to, you should be able to as well.

This kind of calm helped me in my entrepreneurial journey, where 3-4 of my first ventures were failures. It helped me deal with the associated stress & pressure that come with start up life.

It helped me deal with the family losses & hardship that inevitable enter our life's journey.

It made me the person that people gravitate to when seeking advice, be it business or personal - and this has been the most impactful for my personal career. A deep calm that I am able to communicate, as well as transmit in conversations, as well as negotiations.

Reading the summary of this book won't cut it, you need to absorb his story, for a life changing impact in your life. That much I guarantee.

2. Man's Search For Meaning - Viktor E. Frankl

Viktor E. Frankl, a logo-therapist that will help you find meaning in life.

Man's search for meaning.

Excerpt:

Once, an elderly general practitioner consulted me because of his severe depression. He could not overcome the loss of his wife who had died two years before and whom he had loved above all else. Now, how could I help tim? What should I tell him? Well, I refrained from telling him anything but instead confronted him with the question, "What would have happened, Doctor, if you had died first, and your wife would have had to survive you?" "Oh,"he said, "for her this would have been terrible; how she would have suffered!" Whereupon I replied, "You see, Doctor, such a suffering has been spared her, and it was you who have spared her this suffering - to be sure, at the price that now you have to survive and mourn her" He said no word but shook my hand and calmly left my office. In some way, suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice.

Understanding what Viktor E. Frankl has gone through during the 2nd world war, enduring and surviving concentration camps, only to return to a life he devoted to helping others find their meaning in life, in the face of hardship - what a life lesson.
