I’ve been reading a book called ‘Carnegie’s Call’ by Michael Malone. Michael is from our writers’ club and this is his second book. The book is just out. I have to say I was looking forward to this book as I heard that this one was non-fiction and about successful people. I love reading about successful people. I know success is a strange word. It means different things for different people. While reading this book, I felt inspired and motivated to reach my goals and even started doing the exercises in the book. When I was in Mongolia, I knew Dale Carnegie’s books. I trained myself to be confident using his techniques. So I know I can change myself using certain mental attitude and affirmations.
Michael’s book is about Scottish people mostly, but I think it’s about everyone. It doesn’t matter where you are from people have similar life experiences. This Carnegie was born in Scotland and lived a successful life between countries including US and UK.
I look up to Michael now. When I was reading this book I realised this book can be used for coaching and mentoring people in all ages. I was impressed by the little stories in the book which enriched and reinforced the messages he was delivering. He didn’t just write his interviews with these inspiring people, he made it easier for the reader to see how these people made their success and make you as a reader feel you too can do what you want to achieve in life.
So I close my eyes and see myself in 60 years time … people know the word Mongol only as Mongolian national … they remember this little boy who changed attitude and made many accepted in society… he only lived for three months. Everyone knew who he was.
