Why Read Classic Personal Growth Books

Because it is not as easy as it sounds to find a “classic” if that makes any sense. A classic, I define as – Anything old is new again!

Now you may be thinking what a crock of crap that is but let’s talk about this for a second shall we? Do you remember the movie “ophers” with Steve Martin and John Cazale? This movie was written and directed by Steve Martin and it featured a very well known character who was a member of a mastermind group. You might not have heard of him but he was the guy who always made a witty comment to the audience and was always in the spotlight. That’s the genius of the character’s Frank and Norm but they were wise beyond their years and had a plan that always worked.

A Better Way Of Handling Life

Well now you know why people feel the need to follow such people? Because they have a better way of handling life. They had a plan B and C to follow their plan A because they knew ahead of time that something would just go wrong. It’s all about preparation and knowing what is coming so you can react to it in the best way possible.

Can you remember the movie “When Harry Met Sally?” This is another classic romantic comedy that just about everyone should see. Remember when Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal were dating and they knew they were going to get married someday? They planned for it and they made it work.

Confident And Relaxed
