Today I’m reviewing Creating Character Arcs by K.M. Weiland.
Today I’m going to review “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.
Today, I’m going to review Operation Enough! by Anita Dhake. The book is about her journey to becoming financially independent, to retire early. And I think it’s a really great book. I was provided a free copy in order to give an honest review. And I’m giving an honest review now.
If you’re looking for a good business book, I can recommend this one. Profit First by Mike Michalowicz.

We live now in times of incredible distraction. Everywhere we look there are success stories. Along with that are stories of people who overcame incredible odds to succeed at something or other, despite an infirmity or life-changing event of some sort or other. And we want to be successful, too.
We see these stories and think, “Oh, I wish I could be them” or “Thank God I’m not them.”
Either way, we’re doing a form of comparison that’s unhealthy for us.
