The Magic of Think­ing Big

The Sun (Malaysia) - - THE RIGHT READ -

Au­thor: David J. Schwartz, PhD Pub­lisher: Si­mon & Schus­ter ISBN: 9781501126178

THIS book was first pub­lished in 1959 and has been reprinted sev­eral times but I can see why it de­serves its rep­u­ta­tion. Dr Schwartz’s wis­dom and think­ing are orig­i­nal and easy to un­der­stand, and still rel­e­vant to­day.

Though the lan­guage used is slightly ar­chaic, the con­tent is sim­ple. It of­fers a quick read on how to be suc­cess­ful in life, to change the way we think, to set up goals and work on them and, ul­ti­mately, to dream big.

The points that Schwartz presents come with real-life ex­am­ples, given that he is a life coach and pro­fes­sor.

He en­cour­ages us to be­lieve in our­selves and to be con­fi­dent – traits that we are not born with but ones we choose to have, which will lead us to suc­ceed in life.

The book not only keeps you mo­ti­vated but is also a joy to read, and along the way, we learn some life lessons.

It’s a book that has changed many lives. Hope­fully, it would change yours too. – Ai­man Khalif
