3 books that had an impact on my life

Posted by Shravan
The readers of this blog who know me personally are aware of the fact that I am a voracious reader. I just love reading books especially books on investing & management, self help, autobiographies and other non –fiction work. The habit of reading caught me very early in life, when I was around 9 or 10 years old. While I was in college, I used to spend as much as half of my pocket money on buying new books J

The habit of reading has been extremely beneficial to me. Books have had a very positive effect on my life. Books have opened new horizons for me, given me new ideas and taught me a lot. In this post, I will mention the top 3 books that had an impact on my life. So without wasting much time, below is the list. Note that the books are not listed in any particular order.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This book was one of the best books which shaped my life significantly. One of my very good friend (a voracious reader) recommended this book to me while I was in first year of my college. The book contains story of a shepherd boy named Santiago who has always dreams of travelling the world looking for treasure.The book has sold more than 30 million copies all over the world. If you have not read this book, I would request you to grab a copy soon and start reading it. There are a lot of lessons to be learnt from this book. On a side note, this book was my first purchase online. I bought it from Rediff Shopping J

The Story of My Experiments with Truth by Mahatma Gandhi

This is another excellent book which I have read.  I bought it from a book fair hosted in my city. I really loved the book. The book traces Mr.Gandhi’s journey right from childhood onwards. Great pains have been taken to draft the book. It’s possible to learn a lot of things from each and every chapter mentioned in this book.

MegaLiving by Robin Sharma

This is another exceptional book in personality development & self development niche. This book has excellent tips and tricks to make your life full of positivity and achieve your goals. At the end of the book, there is a life changing program eternity. The program lists a few things that everyone is supposed to do every day. I am quite confident that anyone who follows this program religiously and makes it a habit, he is bound to be successful. I have personally learnt a lot of things from this book and I can safely claim that this book has changed my life.

That’s it guys. Apart from these 3 books, there are many other books which have had an impact on my life. Share the books which changed your life via your comments.
