Success comes to those who strive for it. But I also believe that constant support and guidance are equally important to tread on the right path. Walking through the labyrinth of life, trying to decode every possible problem is like walking through a dark tunnel. The distant light can be seen but the distance is unfathomable. Success is that light; you cannot determine how far it is!
‘Principles of Success’ is a self-help book that streamlines the process involved in attaining success. The authoress has divided the process into 14 steps, namely:
1. Draft the Blueprint of Your Life
2. Believe in Yourself
3. Build Yourself Up
4. Let Confidence Be Your Hallmark
5. Never Give Up
6. Visualizations and Positive Affirmations
7. The Tripod of Success- Hard Work, Perseverance and Discipline
8. Identify Your Achilles’ Heel
9. Skills You Need to Master
10. Get Tough With Stress
11. Organize Yourself- Declutter Your Life
12. Acknowledge and Celebrate Your Success
13. Be a Winner
14. The X-Factor
Each step has been described in clear and simple language. However, the commonness of the central idea and the availability of content in various forms by various authors might be one of the reasons why the book is not well-received by everyone. Though the presentation and organization have been done skillfully so that it is understandable by a layman also, yet the redundancy of the material acts as a drawback.
With a simple cover but precise blurb, the book looks enticing and is a quick read. The facts shared in the book are the known ones- only that the ink acts as a reminder for the brain.
Overall, the book has something fruitful to offer and is a light read. Give it a try.
