Success: 7 Ways To Succeed

Business Resources to Help You Succeed

Everyone is so busy trying to network, make the right connections, find the best opportunities and looking for the next big deal.  Have you ever thought that maybe you should stop, breathe, and take some time to learn from those that have already paved the way for success? 

These days with so much technology, we tend to concentrate more on getting the latest technology, faster speed and improving our online presence while sacrificing business improvements, lessons learned and best practices, quality, mentoring each other and providing excellent customer service.      

Below are some excellent books that focus on quality, customer service, making tough decisions, embracing change, effective project management practices and improving the inner you to become an asset to your business:

  1. Defining Moment – When Managers Must Choose From Right and Right
    Joseph L. Badaracco, Jr.
  2. Reposition Yourself – Living Life Without Limits
     TD Jakes
  3. Who Moved My Cheese? – An Amazing Way to Deal With Change
    In  Your  Work And In Your Life
    Spencer Johnson and Kenneth Blanchard
  4.  The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People
    Stephen R Covey
  5. The Road Most Traveled – Release The Power Of Contentment In Your  Life
    Robert Jeffress
  6. The Starbucks Experience – 5 Principles For Turning Ordinary Into Extraordinary
    Joseph A Michelli
  7. Your Best Life Now – 7 Steps To Living At Your Full Potential

Most of these books are easy reads, allowing you to embrace and comprehend the material more fluently.  When material is written in an easy to digest format the reader tends to absorb and maintain the content more readily.  Now is the time to take another approach and avenue towards your business success.

  1. “Who moved my cheese” is a fantastic story, so simple but very telling.
    “7 Habits” would have to be one my all time favourite self-development books. It may take me a lifetime to adopt all the habits!
    I’ve heard about the Starbucks book before but haven’t read it, will have to find a copy.

    Another fabulous book for achieving what you want out of life is Jack Canfield’s “Success Principles”.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I have have 7 Habits for Highly Effective people on my nightstand right now. For whatever reason it’s taken me a while to get into, but I plan to finish it.
