Off the top of your head, what would you consider the best 3 entrepreneur books? –@codymort
There are several questions here. What is an entrepreneur? What makes a good book about entrepreneurs? And what are the best books Ihave read.
An entrepreneur is not a businessman. He’s not a billionaire. He’s not necessarily a leader. I’m going to change the definition a little bit.
The universe is going in a certain direction. Atoms are in motion; quantum particles are on their endless journey. An entrepreneur is like a god that puts his hand into the universal soup and changes the direction of things so that the resulting worldscape that is created is now different.
An entrepreneur can be a businessman, an artist, an employee, a creator, a mystic.
His mind is pulsating on a different rhythm than everyone else. He is either born this way, or learns it by seeing it in his colleagues, or gets it by clearly seeing the holes and gaps around him that can be filled when everyone else is somehow missing them.
His mind knows how to solve problems when the universe doesn’t go the way he has planned. His emotions are free from conflict and from the daggers constantly being thrown at him by the people who are jealous or refuse to believe his new ideas. He is physically fit. He knows how to surrender when defeated and move onto the next event because he had confidence that in the long run things work out for the independent thinkers and souls of the world.
What are the best books for entrepreneurs?
The Rational Optimist, by Matt Ridley. This one book alone shows how we live in a world where not only humans mate and evolve but ideas mate and evolve even faster.
Understanding this one idea and seeing it in action through Ridley’s examples will inspire you to dip into that evolutionary pool and inspire yourself.
Wallace Wattles: The Science of Getting Rich. Forget Napoleon Hill. Forget the power of positive thinking. Forget the ”Law of Attraction” or “The Secret”. The source of all of these books is a book written in 1900 by a relatively unknown, Wattles.
I was Blind But Now I See, my book, http://amzn.to/ppDrlh. The purpose of my book is threefold:
1. How society, commercialism, corporate America, and government, are constantly hypnotizing the everyday person to conform to a definition of Happiness and Success that is far removed from reality.
2. How to recognize and reverse that hypnotism.
3. How to start from the core within and get back physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health so that you can go on to be the creator, inventor, innovator, artist, entrepreneur you were meant to be.
