29 Mar Keys to Success: Reading for Pleasure
One of the most influential books that I’ve ever had the pleasure to read is the The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley. While, I appreciate Spike Lee for his incredible interpretation of the life of Malcolm X, it was this book that brought his story full circle. It has to be one of the top non-fiction stories of our time, describing the complexities of a man who had to discover his activism. The media tries to portray him as a deviant who was angry and filled with violence but through this book, you learn about how he grew and learned from his experiences. Prior to his death, he was extremely enlightened. I learned from this book as soon as I opened the first chapter and am indebted to it’s knowledge and historical importance.
It’s interesting because everyone wants to know the key’s to success. This book was my first key. It’s unlike what everybody else considers success because it’s not based on material but the success of the mind and self empowerment. In fact, my keys offer self awareness and fulfillment in life, two things that can create a sturdy foundation and enough confidence to be successful both financially and mentally.
