Would you rather chose to be inspired or to learn a valuable skill? Without inspiration, it is very hard to start learning new things. And this is where I think books like The Greatest Salesman in the World could help you. I have listened to the audio book recently and honestly; it didn’t resonate with me at all. One of the reason why is that I had read The Richest Man in Babylon and the Greatest salesman seem to be heavily inspired by it. I can understand why it has so many positive reviews. If you read it as a first book, you can be inspired and start applying the fundamental principles. But, if you, like me, had read The Richest Man in Babylon, you don’t need inspiration anymore. Your goal might be to build on top of what you already know. Therefore, inspiration becomes useless after you are already inspired. You must find a way to build on top of it and move to the next level.
