20 Inspiring Books For Your Personal And Business Growth.

If you are smart you learn from your mistakes, if you are brilliant you learn from other people’s mistakes. The best way to learn is to read the right books.

Here you find a list of 20 inspiring books for your personal and business growth.

Books can help you in so many ways to grow as a person, find a job

easier, succeed both as an entrepreneur but also in many other fields.

They can be a source of inspiration, develop personal skills, and provide

tips and business strategies. They can help you to become successful by

providing the right knowledge, new ways of thinking, new insights and

help you to develop necessary skills.

One of the points of reading business books is that they tell you stories

that provide context around challenges and opportunities. The context

and stories can open your mind up to new choices, some you may not

have considered.

Your mindset, your belief system, is a limit on your success in life and in

business. When you read business biographies (and other biographies)

you can infect yourself with empowered beliefs. You can pick up the

beliefs that drove them to see things that were invisible to others. You

can invariably pick up the traits that allow them to succeed, things like

grit, determination, persistence, and resourcefulness.

Think of how little you really know. Think about all the people with deep

subject matter expertise who, in some areas, know far more than you.

You bend the learning curve in your direction when you take the best of

their learning as insights and ideas that may benefit you now or

sometime in the future.

My personal GWH quote is – “What I don’t know today I can learn
