2 Minutes Book Summary: How the World Sees You

2 Minutes Book Summary: How the World Sees You

Is it possible to be a better version of yourself and be successful without really having to change who you truly are?

To many of us, that can be impossible. But through the science of fascination, Sally Hogshead makes us believe it is possible and 100% doable.  Her book, How The World Sees You, stems from a decade of research spanning 250,000 participants from all social spheres.

By her early 20s, Hogshead was one of the most sought-after advertising professionals in the US owing to her unmatched prowess in writing ads that charmed millions. But beyond the top-dollar ads and the hundreds of awards and brands she represented, Sally sought to empower many using her creativity, drive and general ability to make the insurmountable possible.

Today, Sally Hogshead is a regular in the mainstream media, including NBC’s Today Show as well as the New York Times and was freshly inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame owing to her professional brilliance.

Look here.

How many times do we focus so much on enhancing our abilities without assessing our immediate environment and where the demographics favor our personal growth and pursuit of success?

When you’re fascinated (she says it because she had applied it), you’re at your best, and that’s when you tend to hit your peak performance.

A freshwater fish cannot survive in salt water with its freshwater survival tactics – that’s a fact.  If you’re a talented singer, you might waste your talent singing at the wrong places. Without being in the right environment, even your Oscar-worthy performance might end up in the trash bin.

You need some inspiration.

Through her remarkable achievements in such a competitive industry and at such a tender age, Sally and indeed her system usher in a juggernaut of insight into the secret to success. How The World Sees You isn’t just a regular book. It is a book filled with wisdom that befits everyone, the young and the old alike, the successful and those struggling for success alike.

Good Book to Read: What I Know For Sure

Today, we are often caught up in climbing the ladder of success, building immense wealth, and indulging in material pleasures of the world because society has deemed that to be the determining factors of happiness. As a result, we may end up forgetting some basic but important values about life, love and relationships. What should we really be placing value on? And how can we reach so called self actualisation in a way that benefits not just ourselves?

In What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey, the legendary talk show host shares candid and sometimes harsh life lessons she has learned over the years that every reader will be able to identify with at some stage in their life. Most importantly, it is a book that teaches us to be better versions of ourselves.

Organised by theme—joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power—these short writings offer a rare and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of an extraordinary woman – while providing readers with a realistic guide to becoming better versions of themselves.

Readers will find that they are not alone in whatever the situation they are facing because even a powerful woman like Oprah has been through it. Through her words of comfort and assurance, this book gives fresh perspective on common life struggles like ageing, weight and self esteem, betrayal, failure, work life balance and relationships, thus equipping readers to take action and make changes to their lives.

In Gratitude, Oprah shares about the habit of keeping a gratitude journal where she would list 5 specific things that she was grateful for everyday. This allowed her to see the good out of a bad day or during moments of low.

In Connection, she highlights the importance of communication in relationships and offers a simple word of advice – ask when in doubt and how saying three simple words ‘I hear you’ can improve the relationship significantly.

There will be moments of laughter and tears throughout the book, as readers gain insight into intimate and everyday routines of the world’s first female African American billionaire. Realising that she is not so different after all, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure rings truth that readers will turn to over and over again.
