There are few things more powerful in the world than the written word. For centuries, authors have been shaping the ways in which the public thinks, acts, and views the world as well as their relationships. Some writers choose to focus on life’s struggles, chronicling the battles of the common man in his pursuit of happiness. Still others choose to focus on the beauty in life, penning novels about love, friendship, and finding success. These stories, both the negative and the positive, have been sources of inspiration for millions of people around the world. They have given birth to the “self-help” genre, a category of reading that is often misunderstood as fluffy, verbose, or overly general.
Why Books Matter
However, books that deal directly with helping individuals find success in life are a critical way of motivating people through their struggles. For example, take “Defining Moments of Courage”, a collection of stories about the lives of successful entrepreneurs and business executives. For author Dean Kosage, publishing inspiration through this book came from a deeply rooted passion for helping others find the success in their lives inside and outside of work. By drawing on the experiences of dozens of professionals, this book has helped countless individuals gain the perspective necessary to assess their strengths and weakness, ultimately leading to more fulfillments in life.
