Lemme say as a start that I’m not totally and honestly a book type of person. It sucks right! But that’s true so never judge me that I do not know a thing because this little brain of mine is brilliant. Yes,I do study but sci fi and romantic books do give so much interest to me rather than hard core one that feed your brain.
So I was at “BORDERS“, it’s like UAE version of National Bookstore in the Philippines and the main reason is that I wanna purchase a book that is under the profession that I’m into just so I can do some refresher of the things I’ve work for the past couple of years.
Sadly they don’t have one and then I saw this shelves of which contains some motivational books like for uplifting oneself when you feel like the world is against you. It’s a rough world out there right?!
I loved it that they have this sitting corner here where in you can read some of the books you might be interested with and so I get to scan over and go through the pages of these guys here. Small but powerful I might say. Each book is consist of 1001 motivational quotes and saying from famous people or just random lines for every aspect of our life. So I got the Book of CONFIDENCE, HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS which I think could need a bit of push, not like my life was hit over by a Wrecking Ball but It makes you grow and start things more better. It’s like an eye opener to why things are not as what you think it was or for other people.
It cost me 32 Aed (453 Php) each and it’s published in London under ARCTURUS PUBLISHING. This book is very handy that you can jut have it in your bag and read it anywhere you like. Each book contains 7 contents from the INTRO,their definitions, to the GUIDES and more.
Let me share with you lines from each of these books have. This might be long but it’s worth reading.
