Books you've enjoyed and what's the takeaway from that book? Two of my most favorite books have been Think and Grow Rich and The Alchemist. My biggest takeaways relate the law of reciprocity and how what you put out impacts what you get back in return. At the end of the day, it often boils down to how you think and how thought can be transformed into its mutual counterpart; the mastermind principle. Persistence does not recognize failure, but it understands the necessity of failure to succeed, and thus searches for the lessons within every failure that brings an equal seed of success.
