When I was in my college days, I got an opportunity to read "You Can Win" book by Shiv Khera. From my very young age, I was attracted a lot towards reading quotes and listening to things that inspire me. This books was something like that. It really made a huge difference in me.
The first and foremost quote that made a difference in my life was "Winners don't do different things but they do things differently". Before this quote came to my life. I used to think it was something wrong being different from others. The way I do things was always different from others. I had an inferior feeling that something was wrong in me. I used to continuously try changing myself and become something that was not really me.
After reading this quote, I started feeling proud to be different from others. I never change the way I do things. Of course I take lots of positives from others but never regret for being different. Even today in spite of being different from others, I continue to feel happy and confident doing things differently.
Thanks for asking this question. This really touched some good memories in my brain.
One out of many, "Act like a lady, think like a Man"...I just read this book and it has impacted into my life positively. Being a man has a rule that must be followed. The book was funny but i just loved what steve actually said about the sense of being a fulfilled man.
Another book is the " Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life"...
