Here’s an author with an innate gift of writing everything from a unique perspective, sharing a beautiful message in the most simplistic manner ever, and ultimately, creating an unforgettable story.

Told in a humorous manner with the help of a simple parable, Who Moved My Cheese? Reveals deep truths about us. The essence of this book is about how people handle change whether they avoid it or embrace it and leap forward toward their goals.
We honestly believe that this is a book for anyone and everyone because we are all leaders in our own lives, or at least we should be and the sooner a leader understands that positivity is the key to dealing with change the sooner that leader can move forward.

4. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

One of the best stories ever written on corporate responsibility, Jurassic Park is a riveting and entertaining read that warns ambitious entrepreneurs. If your ambitions tend to push too hard or go beyond the ethical boundaries agreed upon, you might just become the lunch of a velociraptor.

8. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert S. Pirsig

Zen offers entrepreneurs a unique framework for thinking and discussing big abstract concepts. Pirsig creates a story that stresses the importance of living an authentic life, which transcends into your professional life and your spirit. If you do this, according to the author, everything else in your life will play out the snowball effect and fall into place.

Also, another thing to keep in mind is that consistent, small, key victories that propel us forward, as opposed to irregular big victories which will take you on an emotional and professional rollercoaster.
