The Habit of Winning - A review

Thursday, October 27, 2011

“Sow, whatever you wish to reap”. Sub conscious mind accepts what is impressed upon it or what you consciously believe. Your subconscious mind is like a bed of soil that accepts any kind of seed, good or bad. Your thoughts are active, they are the seed, so naturally negative or positive thoughts and thereby attitude depends on what you sow on soil (subconscious mind) and grow over period of time. These excerpts and interpretation are from book “The power of your subconscious mind” by Dr Joseph Murphy.

The author - Mr Prakash Iyer, through his experience has nicely mixed sports and corporate world stories to induce positive thoughts in one’s mind, which is very essential to become a leader. A leader does not mean that you need to lead a team of people, to be successful you need to be leader of your own life at various stages. Not just young professional or managers, I would say it’s a must read book even for youngsters.

Any such program or book, always need to have take aways, which one need to keep working to reap the benefits and towards this, the book has many real life example from sports and corporate world, whom I sure most of us know,
The author had provided details about cricketing legend like B.S Chandrasekar and Marvan Attapatu life, we would not been talking about these cricketers, had they not overcome their challenges to make their habit of winning. For years Attapatu’s test innings scores were in single digit and he had been dropped repeatedly, this did not deter him from making the attempts, having perseverance, self belief and working towards getting back into Sri Lankan side, also going ahead and becoming a successful cricketer. This being the case, India might be the only country, were too much importance is given to exams and there are stories of student taking their life due to just one failure, which is a tragedy. Whenever one fails, one need to take lesson out these sportsmen life and think like a sportsmen.

Short stories about learn to give more, no struggle - no success, getting out of your comfort zone, staying focused, perseverance and interpersonal relationship would take you towards making your habit of winning. In all, a good book to anyone, who so ever wishes to work through his or her betterment and make winning a habit.
