Have you ever come across any book explaining to you how to confront lives challenges? Books giving tips on how to excel in school; how to have a happy home; how to be a good businessman etc.? Well, I have read a lot of these books before and realized that these ‘quick fix’ rules espouse by some of these books only work for certain circumstances and for as long as we can hold on to them. They lack root!
On the other hand, this thought provoking Book explains beyond the basic rules. It teaches fundamental principles and gives profound reasons to apply them. Rather than focusing on personality building, Stephen emphasizes character development as a means of achieving lasting success. He added that success, just like failure is a habit, which is a product of our conscious effort and decisions.
In the first part of the book, Covey introduces a new level of thinking. He clarifies that an “inside out” approach needs to be applied for personal and interpersonal effectiveness. “Inside out” means to start first with self- with your motives and character. It means not looking outward to find solutions to problems but an inward approach- changing you! It deals with harnessing the power of the mind and thought pattern, to create mind blowing achievements and success in all works of life.
This breath-taking book validates the durable truth that applies to relationships. It explains that success is defined by the quality of our relationships. Relationship with family, colleagues in school, rivals at work and every other relationships we find ourselves in as a result of our roles. The easier we find it to foster a healthy relationship with people, the easier it will be to climb through the ladder of success, Covet explains.
Reading this book has helped me to understand that there are certain circumstances I may not have control over, but I can choose how I react to them because it is my reaction to situations that hurts me the most. This book helps to stimulate the idea that you have the power to choose your response to circumstances irrespective of how you were brought up or conditioned as a result of past experiences. Explaining the above principle, the author uses Joseph as a perfect example.
This book is divided into four parts, while the 7 habits are addressed separately but not disjointedly as mastery of one habit is a prerequisite to fathom the next. One of the reasons why I feel in love with this book is that the principles taught in it are fundamental biblical and natural law principles, principles we come across daily. However, Covey makes us see these principles from a different perspective. A change perspective! He simplified the principles and presents them as practicable to our every day life. This book is a must read for you if you so desire to take full control of your life. Hence, I state categorically that if you read and apply the principles in this book appropriately, it will add tremendous value to your life as well as the life of people around you!
