Let's jump right into it. You've probably heard it before but it is so true: it's hard to learn and grow if you don't allow mistakes to happen. There are natural fears that most of us have, genetically from evolution. one of them is to stand in front of a crowd and make a fool of yourself and have everyone laughing at you.

Start off with 1000+ Little Things Happy Successful People Do Differently because it's a book to motivate you to read further on motivation. First study and reflect on the word happiness, then as you reach for success you'll need to deduct from your happiness, and this relation needs to be in balance. You can run a successful business and work 80 hours per week or even more, but if you're not happy it's not sustainable, and you'll burn yourself out eventually and become ineffective.
Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance is about not giving up. The swedish title is "The Art Of Not Giving Up". Sometimes it's good to give up, because sometimes giving up means moving on (like don't stay in a toxic relationship, move on). But sometimes when you give up, you secretly want to continue. Sometimes you feel like you want to come back next year and try it again. This book is about getting it done.
