I've recently started reading more of the non-fiction genre to hopefully get something more out of reading. More than just the pleasure of escaping reality for a moment. I love fictive stories, and will always keep on reading them. But once in a while you need something else mixed in. Since it stood in our book shelf just waiting to be read I picked it up, Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
The book consists of a lot of different stories to make you understand what makes someone successful. How no one actually can make it on their own. I'm not gonna tell you too much about what the book is about. But I can honestly say that it was really interesting.
I really recommend this book, but don't believe it will contain a recipe for success. The point is to get a better understanding at how people get where they are.
I personally think success is a kind of strange word. Because what is success actually? Some (or a lot) would probably say success is fame. But I don't agree. Success to me is being able to do the things you love and still being true to yourself. A lot of people today strive for fame and success, but loose themselves along the way. And what's the point of that?
I really hope to find things that make me happy, and keeps me satisfied. And I wish I'll be able to hold on to that and make time for it.
