THE BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE

the book that changed my life (Part 1)

I thought if I can binge watch TV, surely I can binge listen to this audiobook instead, and get some useful knowledge inside my head. After all, it was June 2020, a year filled with events that perhaps could be a whole blog post in itself, many events, sadness, happiness, how would you describe, what word would you suggest?


From World War 3 on the horizon to Australia bushfires blazing, Prince Harry leaving the royal family policies, Caroline Flack taking her life so suddenly, Kobe and his daughter killed in a helicopter crash so shockingly. Following this was months of bad storms, then a world-wide pandemic, and if your reading this I pray you be strengthened if you had to mourn, people panic buying, stores empty, schools closed, investors pulling out of the stock market in a hurry, not trying to ride the wave, losing so much money while Amazon seemed to shine brightly and rise to an all-time high and every day seemed to be a zoom call, working from home a strange new norm. Then don’t get me started on the social injustice from the killing of George Floyd, protests, riots, looters, peaceful cries mixed with violence which sometimes looked orchestrated to create dividance (my own word forgive me but it sounds exactly like what I am needing). #blacklivesmatter movement verses the BLM organization money arguments, then things dying down when Breonna Taylor’s killers are still not arrested. But I digress from my message, the book that changed my life…


My new year’s resolution was to read more and write more, but I seemed to only be watching Netflix more and more I’m sure from looking at their rise in stocks I was not the only one. I could do a whole other blog post on some great series and films on Netflix and Amazon Prime that even inspired my fictional writing, noticing the plot twists, the details of what is revealed. The how, the when, the who. God bless writers and the creative imagination and the things we do from the infinite intelligence pool. And how the character profiles combined with the direction from the director and the vision from the producer, makes you feel like you have a love-hate relationship with distant relatives you have never met. Binge-watching series was not all bad but surely I could binge-listen to this book instead, after all, it was free on YouTube whilst others in the reading club waited to get the edited paperback version delivered as this amazing book through the years had been edited many times many rewrites to reflect the new times.


I thought if I can binge watch TV, surely I can binge listen to this audiobook instead, especially as we were all in quarantine, COVID 19 on everyone’s lips, how could I use this working from home time productively? It was almost like destiny, how I managed to be told about a new book club on watts app joined and straight away the first book to be chosen was about our minds and wealth creation.


I was at the right place at the right time, and I don’t think people will really understand that I am not the same man from just reading this book program a new upgraded version I stand but many would not understand unless they are like me. I am the kind of person that can really focus on a particular thing, similar to what some describe as autistic people becoming obsessed with a goal or hobby. Once I understand something and decide to run with it, there is no looking back for a very long period anyway. I literally change overnight. I form a new habit as though I have always been like this.


I might reveal the title of this book, but I’m interested in knowing who can guess. I might throw in a prize for the lucky first winner.


Your first clue is the book poses a question about what was it about a young girl that kept on asking her mean uncle for money and he would not give it to her, but she carried on and he gave in like she was strong. What power did she possess to get what she wants? Forgive my grammar, what she wanted from out of her thoughts? You may say persistence, you may say something else, but the full answer is what some call the secret. Can you guess or do you need more clues before I reveal it, the book that changed my life?

    That’s a lovely read. I like the way you captured the whole on 2020 in a paragraph. I’m intrigued to know what the book is and that little girl sounds like me…she was focused and persistent with her goal…to get 💰. She didn’t give up. Also that Netflix thing is very relatable….I agree that it can push you to focus more but if you’re weak and your mind isn’t stimulated you’ll just continue to binge watch
