Taking Charge of Your Life Bibliography

I have read them all and found them to be inspiring and I’ve implemented some of the ideas into my life. My wish for you is that you are also blessed with understanding and empowerment.

Marriage, Success, and Job Seeking Tips

(A)  How to be an overnight success:

The Only Way to Become Amazingly Great at Something” by Leo Babauta–

1. “First, you must learn it by reading or listening to others who know how to do it, but most especially by doing.”
2. “Then do some more. At this point, you’ll start to understand it, but you’ll suck. This stage could take months.”
3. “Do some more. After a couple of years, you’ll get good at it.”
4. “Do some more. If you learn from mistakes, and aren’t afraid to make mistakes in the first place, you’ll go from good to great.”

“It takes anywhere from 6-10 years to get great at something, depending on how often and how much you do it. Some estimate that it takes 10,000 hours to master something, but I think it varies from person to person and depends on the skill and other factors.”
