My Way — by Derek O’Brien

The book is a collection of stories of famous personalities and how motivation drives one to great success. Be it the extreme practice of Sania Nehwal or Salman Khan’s risk-taking factor of quitting his job to follow his dreams, the book is a depiction of how passion and practice beat talent.

In life, we give up every now and then thinking that since “this” thing has happened to me, my life is done and there is no way I can keep going forward. Life is all about experiences. You are given a good 75 years on this beautiful planet (if you’re lucky) and your only motto is to experience it to the fullest. And the experiences don’t necessarily have to be to become a person with lots and lots of money. Just find ways that make you happy.

Do take time to read this book. I usually read motivating books in installments with a chapter a day right in the morning as soon as I wake up. This gives me hope to power through the day.
