Chicken Soup for the Soul
Success and Personal Effectiveness
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living Your Dreams by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen
This collection of 101 stories is based on the belief that testimonies of goodness and loving transformations can nourish us to the bone and heal the cynicism in our hearts. The short simple stories tell about an event, a person, or an everyday miracle that exemplifies the best of the human spirit. This multi-million selling book has taught readers that dreams really do come true for those who dare to believe that any obstacle can be overcome with persistence, patience, and belief in oneself.
Note: I have read this book way back 2005. I have left it in the ship's library so that others may read it and be inspired.
How Effective those Self-Help Books?
In my own experience, as an introvert before, I was awaken by the stories of heroes and famous people in history who contributed to their nations' independence.
More so, popular television hosts who personally struggle before gaining fame is a tough act to follow.
Alas, they inspire me to be like them, to follow the right path they've walked on in order to be roles models to others.
With their memoirs and written books, many will follow their footsteps into righteousness.
