Robin Sharma is a very interesting and unique in his style and content. After all, giving 70 small chapters on (or advises) for success shows how contentful writer is. Seventy chapters, only one or two pages long, about true success with quotes in the end and three questions about the life worth thinking.
The little black book by Robin Sharma for stunning success (with tools for action mastery) is very… different. You rarely see books that have three completely different contents running parallel in the same context for the same topic. His books are always inspiring for search happiness and becoming a great leader but this one is actually like a guide for living a good quality life. Quotes were good though and some of them had meanings between lines.
If you don’t think, you don’t run your head while reading a book it’ll be too difficult to learn from it. Many can say that was not that interesting or was boring which is true at some level but no one can deny that book has a 100% honesty and that’s if you think of each line deeply, consciously, the book is worth your time and is very impactful. In my opinion, no book is bad in fact no book can be bad… every book has its own perks and down streams. If you read carefully, this little black book has great values on almost every page.
Now the best part, what was the tool for action mastery? After each chapter the asks three questions. First ‘What I’m Grateful for Today?’, then ‘Where I’ll Pursue mastery today?’ and last (also my favourite) ‘What I learned today?’. The three important questions that make sure why you should be happy every day. If you think just one thing that you are grateful for something each day, in a month you have 30 reasons for being grateful and you used to worry about one thing you didn’t have for 30 days.
If you think just one thing that you are grateful for something each day, in a month you have 30 reasons for being grateful and you used to worry about one thing you didn’t have for 30 days. Focus on what you have rather than what you don’t have.
To have more than you got, you have to become more than you are.
~ Jim Rohn
You should always be better than your previous self, or you will be stuck in life at some point. Always practice being better and everything will become better around you. Having a new skill every new day; a couple of hours and you accomplish something. Simple. You are alive and life’s a journey, look at milestones, of course, you’ve learned something or experienced something different (special); regardless of good or bad it was a lesson; remember it, it is precious as a diamond inlaid in the necklace of life. No one requires anything to learn. You live and you learn.
The Little black book embraces life, simple points that make you a leader. Remember the three questions and embrace your life.
