Take a moment to think about some of the people you know who have been the best. I think they’re great with people, are very productive, and think in a different way than most people. That’s how they got to where they are now.
They make you want them. You don’t need to be. You can learn these skills by reading some of the best business and success books. These books can help you improve your game. Here are 10 of my favorite things:

Focal Point by Brian Tracy
A lot is on your “to-do” list. I’m sure you know that. But what makes people who are more productive than other people is that they can focus on one thing at a time and finish it before moving on to the next one.

Purple Cow by Seth Godin
“Me too” products can be easy to make at the start, but they can also end your business. That’s why marketing expert Seth Godin says that you should make a product that is truly unique from anything else out there.
In other words, by making the product unique, you’ll be putting the marketing into the process of making the product. This makes your actual marketing a whole lot easier.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
A few years ago, I remember sitting on the couch and opening this book on a Saturday morning. I thought I’d read a chapter and then get on with my day. Instead, I was done with the book about 12 hours later, and I was done for the day. I was amazed by the ideas in it.
To think that your thoughts can make your reality seemed a little out there at first. It was only after I read the book and learned that your thoughts make you believe things, which then make you do things, which then make you do things over and over again. There are a lot of things that can get in your way, but if you think about success, it will be much easier to get there than if you think about things that can stop you.

How to start a business is great, but if you can’t keep going when things get hard, it’s not going to work. You need a lot more than technical knowledge. It’s important that you learn this lesson before you spend your life’s blood, sweat, and tears on a project that you don’t want to work on. This book can help you do that.
