    Hey I was wondering in terms of books, movies or articles which authors have inspired you for your entrepreneurial path or at least to think: I should do things better or differently than others.

    In my case a really good one is Robert Greene from "The 48 Laws of Power"-"Mastery", I also like Krishnamurti "Think on these things" and the movie "Fight Club". Any recommendations or pieces of work that has inspired you?

    *These apart from the obvious ones from MJ of course :D

    For me, I'm generally business-driven ever since I knew myself, but as we know, a lot of the books which covered this topic were either exceptionally vague or offered advice the author did not use to obtain their success, so for me (without being a kiss up) MJ truly inspired me through both books, because, not only did he share his personal journey, but, his delivery was powerful.

    The one thing that I recognised about both books was that if I fail, it's because I chose not to act, the books spelt out philosophies which can also apply to building success in all aspects of life.

    Within the books, he recommended other books worth reading, which I will be getting my hands on AND, I've seen a lot of our contributors here on the forum with excellent books too which I also will be putting my hands onto.

    Read Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. I would use consider inspirational in some ways, although they are perceived as controversial books.

    Biggest inspiration has come from reading about people on here.

    Some threads have more practical advice than a four year University degree.

    If you haven't read most of the Gold threads I would start there.

    Absolutely agree, there really is nothing that can compare to the real-time, empowering stories on this forum, they are the proof of the books and the fact that great actions move mountains.
