3 Books That Changed My Life

This book teaches me to appreciate the little things.

No matter how bad my life may be, it will never be as bad as the days of Victor Frankl at Auschwitz.

If Victor can find meaning in life in the midst of terrible sufferings, anybody can.

Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.

Viktor Frankl

In the past, I was always stressful and anxious about doing everything right. Not only that, I wanted to do everything well.

Needless to say, I overstressed myself to the point of depression.

This book has given me the ‘aha moment.’

It was like putting down a huge boulder so I could walk weightless and freely on cloud nine.

Success is about doing the right thing. Not about doing everything right.”

The ONE Thing

I wasn’t as gifted like many of my friends.

I desperately wanted to be like them and therefore I spent many hours researching what separates the best from the rest.

This book shows that the gifted are rarely talented people.

They just have that little advantage over everyone else and is what Jeff dubbed as The Slight Edge.

If you want to know the secret to live a meaningful life of abundance, then this book is definitely a must-read.

Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.”

Jeff olson
