Achieve Success

I read this very good excerpt from the very good book Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen. I do recommend this book. It has the most rewarding stories that one can use every day. This excerpt is especially a good one to remember when one wants to achieve success in your life.

” Trying harder doesn’t always work.

Sometimes we need to do something radically different to achieve greater levels of success.

We need to break out of our paradigm prisons, our habit patterns, and our comfort zones”.

Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky

Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky – what a fantastic book. It is an intriguing story set in 1940 during the early years of German occupation of France. It is a story of despair, fear, chaos but also in the end – HOPE.

In the first chapter of Suite Française, STORM, Irène portrays the life of the people of France where they have to flee their homes, hiding in the fields, and flee to the neighbouring cities.

The different characters are portrayed so well;
