Once in a while, you need someone or something to remind you what you are truly capable of doing and once in a while, you need someone to tell you that you have the will to do it all. One such book which has fired my neurons is ‘Lean In’ (Women, Work and the Will to Lead), a book by Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook & Nell Scovell, TV and magazine writer. It’s truly inspiring.
This is my 1st post for this year and so I wanted to send something very special your way. So my readers, my well-wishers, my friends, first-timers on this blog, this is for you, and may you benefit from this brave and courageous book. I know it’s late, but still
Wishing you a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
The Alchemist is another book I read about 10 years ago and I have never forgotten these wonderful quotes. I like to think of these quotes whenever I am trying to do something and things are not working the way I want it to.
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”
