Leadership Wisdom

I have started reading a new book...
Name of the book is..."Leadership Wisdom"....This book is written by Robin Sharma...an Indian Author..


His first book was "The Monk who Sold his Ferrari".... I bet most of u have heard the name...
It was a phenomenal national bestseller...


I didn't get the chance to read his first book...
But now wen I m reading the sequel of his first book ....I really want to read the first one ..

"Leadership Wisdom" is an Internationally Acclaimed Leadership guru....

Each page of this book contains treasures of wisdom that can enrich and enhance the life of every single person....


It is a captivating book that teaches as it delights...

I want to share a story with you which I read in this book........

"Once a young student traveled many miles to find a famous spiritual master. When he finally met this man , he told this man that his main goal in life was to be the wisest man in land.
Seeing the boy's enthusiasm, the master agreed to share his knowledge with him and took him under his wing. 
'How long will it take before I find enlightenment?' the boy immediately asked.
 'At least five years,' replied the master.
 'That is too long,' said the boy. 'I cannot wait five years! 
What if i study twice as hard as the rest of your students?'
 'Ten years' came the response. 
'Ten years! Well, then how about if i study day and night, with every ounce of my mental concentration? Then how long would it take for me to become wise?
 'Fifteen years' replied the master.


The boy grew very frustrated. 'How come every time I tell you I will work harder to reach my goal, you tell me it will take longer?'


'The answer is clear', said the master. "With one eye focused on the reward, there is only one eye let\ft to focus on your purpose."


I liked the story a lot..
And I want to share some leadership traits which I learnt from this book..
If you guys are there to listen then I'll share. Let me know...if you liked the story...
And want to hear more....
Thanx for visiting.. :)
