Four Must Read Books to Become an Entrepreneur

Updated on August 9, 2019

Everyone can tell you the risk.

An entrepreneur can see the reward.

We all want to become one of the most successful entrepreneur. Even I personally love to be an entrepreneur because of the high earning potential. Moreover, being an entrepreneur is a very difficult job, as we have to go through all the ups and downs in life.

So to all those who are wondering what is meant by entrepreneur, then it is simply a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit. It takes a high amount of time to get established in our business. And this is the reason why most of the people give up their dream of becoming an entrepreneur. But don't worry, I am here to help you get some information about the books that will motivate you to pursue your dream.

Why Should We Read Entrepreneurial Books?

Yes, it is that we have to learn from our experience. And this takes a huge part of our life. But don't worry, we can always learn from others too. We have never invented the electric bulb, nor have we experienced the difficulties to do the same. But we know what an electric bulb is and how it is made from our science textbooks.

So what I am trying to explain is that books can teach us a lot even without experiencing in real. Therefore I recommend you to read some books before you walk into the path of business. This will help you to reduce the number of failures that you might have to face. And it will also teach you the great life lessons that one should be aware of.

1. How To Win Friends And Influence People

All of us want to be the person who is liked by everyone. We want to impress people and show people how smart we are. We want to become the leader that every story tells about. But most of the time we fail, as we end up boasting about ourselves. Even though we are highly qualified, we need to have that soft skill to win people's hearts. This is the first and foremost thing that one should possess to become an entrepreneur.

And by reading this book How To Win Friends And Influence People written by Dale Carnegie, one will be able to understand how to deal with people. Here, the author neatly explains how to approach people in such a way that they would love us. Starting his career as a successful salesman, he eventually ended his sales career and taught public speaking. Luckily, all the secrets in his teaching are now packed into the book titled How To Win Friends And Influence People.

This book can be divided into 4 parts. Each part has an important role to improve our interpersonal relationship. Once you read this book, you will get a clear idea on how to deal with people in such a way that they will like you. If you are a person facing difficulty to mingle with others in social gatherings, then I will recommend this to you because good communication is the foremost thing for an entrepreneur.

2. Think And Grow Rich

We all wonder how people become successful from the ashes. And we also want to be one among them. We try all the possible methods that we know to become one of the most successful people in the world. But even after all the struggles and hardships that we face, we end up becoming a failure. We start thinking that success is nearly an impossible word to achieve. But to become a rich and successful businessman, we need to understand how to master our mind and our thoughts to reach our goals.

And in the book Think And Grow Rich, the author Napoleon Hill has mentioned the 13 principles that one must follow to become successful in life.

He has interviewed more than 500 richest people of his time and has taken more than 20 years to create this book of information. He strongly states that, whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve. In this book, he has also written about the things that make a person unsuccessful in his life.

After reading this book, you can know what are the things that one should focus on and what are the things that one should never do to become a successful person.

3. The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People

We all know that our habits decide what we are. To become a successful entrepreneur, we need to inculcate the habits that help us to build a good future for ourselves. And some habits are common for all successful people. It is these habits that helped them to stand up again and again after each fall.

So in the book, The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People, the author Stephen R Covey, talks about the seven must-have habits to become a successful person. The author starts the book by saying that even highly educated people find it difficult to develop personal effectiveness and healthy relationship due to lack of productive habits. He also states that in the modern world, people are looking for quick fixes, not knowing that these solutions will only last for a short period.

The author, Stephen R Covey, gives a clear explanation about all the 7 principles through various examples from life. After reading this book of Stephen's, you can undoubtedly feel the persistence of his ideas and their relevance in today's world.

4. Rich Dad Poor Dad

So after reading all the three books that I mentioned above, we have gained some information about the soft skills and habits that one must follow to become successful. And know it is time for us to understand how to use money.

We all know that there is a big difference between the rich and the poor. In our concept, the difference is only in terms of the money that the rich and the poor earn. In reality, there is a whale of difference in the way these people think. And it is the main reason why the rich gets richer while the poor remain poorer.

In the book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, the author Robert T. Kiyosaki, talks about the 7 principles that teach us to use money properly. He tries to bring out the thought process of the rich people and the poor people by comparing his dads; the rich dad and the poor dad. While the poor dad emphasis on getting a safe and secure job, the rich dad wants the author to take the risk and learn from experience. He also talks about the cash-flow quadrants that persist in the world.

After reading this book, we get a clear idea of how money works. We get to know how and where to invest money and how to let money work for us.
