I love this book very much.
Reason simply that all the quotes inside this book were very inspirational one.
After I go through each quotes in this book, I do realized a lots of thing and certainly something that I've not realized that it's actually happening on me.

Guess most of you already know that I've graduated from Diploma in Tourism Management and currently working as Account Assistant in a company now. :)
I've been complaining about my workload and yes I do found that the more I complaint, the more I'm not happy with this work.
Somehow I don't like to work in this field yet I know I'm kind of into this job slowly as now its almost half years already working in this field. :)

Let me share some of those quotes that inspired me the most. :)

 Conan O'Brien

"Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. "

Oprah Winfrey

The essential question is not, "How busy are you?" but "What are you busy at?" "Are you doing what fulfills you?"

Bruce Jenner

" I learned that the only way you're going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you're a musician, a writer, an athlete, or a businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you'll win. If you don't, you won't. "

Simon Cowell

" Harshness to me is giving somebody false hopes and not following through. That's harsh. Telling some guy or some girl who've got zero talent that they have zero talent actually is a kindness. "

Dolly Parton

" We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails. "

Sun Tzu

" Opportunities multiply as they are seized. "

Katie Couric

" Know and accept your own strengths and weaknesses. "

Reese Witherspoon

" It's important to scare yourself, to do things you don't think you're capable of doing. "

Christabel Pankhurst

" Ability is sexless. "

The one which appears to be the greatest one is this one.

" Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. It's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to preservere. "

- Barack Obama -

From the above, you can see that this book contains various types of great and successful people in the world.
I actually made some bookmarks from those quotes. :)
I gave it to colleagues and some of my friends and of course for myself too.
