Books That Change Lives - Who Moved My Cheese?
Motivational or inspiring Books That Change Lives. Do you believe that they can have a life-changing impact? I believe they can. At one stage of my life I would have scoffed at the very suggestion of such a thing. Perhaps I just was just too busy with everyday life, or perhaps I just wasn't in a place where I was ready to reflect on things. I suspect that like most people, my initial exposure to motivational reading came about through work - where I would be encouraged to read business books, learn about my own strengths and weaknesses and learn about what motivated me and those around me. I found these books interesting and I acknowledge that I learnt something from them and certainly applying some of their techniques made a difference at work, but I would never be able to say that I found them life changing on a personal level.
So, you might ask. What is it that moved you to create this lense? Well, its rather a simple thing really, and in fact something that I had almost forgotten about until I recently re-visited a book I had read several years ago called "Who Moved My Cheese".

Who Moved My Cheese?
A very easy read, yet contains profound observations on change and how we react to it.
As I re-read the book "Who Moved My Cheese?" I reflected on the fact that it had actually made a difference to my outlook on life over the last 7 or 8 years. Not perhaps the startling revelation or explosion of understanding, that I suspect many of us somehow expect, anticipate, or hope might happen from being given such insights. But I did recognise that it had been instrumental in giving me a different viewpoint on why things change and I how I might better cope or even embrace change.
