If you really want to realize your full potential, you really need to read two books.
There are two books I insist my clients read before I go to work for them as a life coach. The first, How to Win Friends and Influence People, was written back in 1936 and is mandatory reading for those wishing to succeed in practically any career field. Regardless of your chosen path, your odds of success are going to be greatly diminished if you fail to understand how to not only assimilate but endear yourself to others.
The second book, Becoming Who You Want to Be, provides the means by which you can become truly independent. No Superbowl was ever won by a team that didn't have a disciplined game plan. The sooner you come up with one of your own, the sooner you will realize your full potential.
Bottom line. If you internalize the life strategies in these books and put them into practice, you probably won't be needing me.
Both volumes appear in an overview/outline format on Google Books. If either intrigue you, both volumes are readily available on Amazon. Becoming Who You Want to Be is currently only available in a Kindle (digital) format while How to Win Friends and Influence People is available in both Kindle and hardback.
