I’ve learned a lot since I decided to let go the idea that I have to get a job again.
I stopped looking for a job and accepted the fact that employers are just not interested in people my age (Baby Boomers). Despite all my 37 years of experience and the education I have had.
This “letting go” gave me such a relaxed feeling. I felt no stress anymore.
My mind became ready for new things. I started to sleep better and I feel so grateful for what I do have now and I enjoy learning new stuff.
Some of the books I’m using to help me change my mindset are books I had never heard of before.
The classics are:
– “As a man Thinketh” by James Allen
– “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill
– “How to Win friends and Influence people” by Dale Carnegie
– “The Science of Getting Rich”; by Wallace D.Wattles
And of course “The Secret” About The Law of Attraction and
“You were born Rich” by Bob Proctor.
And for the update of my financial education, coming from the entrepreneurial mindset
I’ve read some books written by Robert Kiyosaki. like ;
– “Rich Dad Poor Dad”
– “Cashflow Quadrant”
– “Business school for People who like helping people”.
And then the book “Influence” by Robert B. Cialdini. (You need to know at least the basics of marketing if you want to have a business.)
I can not mention all the books about the industry I’ve chosen to get involved in. Here is not the place to do that.
I know that- knowing something and know of something are not the same.
But I figure I have to become knowledgeable and learn the basics of anything I decide I want to do. And also get the skills I lack for doing what has to be done in order to have success.
If you become knowledgeable you don’t need opinions of others to make your decisions.
Opinions of others are not the facts.
In the book Think & Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill writes something in the chapter “Decision” that I have seen so many people quote in their article.
I could so relay to that. But now I know better.
I want to close this post with that quote:
“Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous. Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” or ridicule.” ~~Napoleon Hill~~
