It’s been a couple of months since I have reviewed a book. This time I got the opportunity to read and review Eldon Taylor’s book Choices and Illusions.
The aspect of this book that I enjoyed the most was the approach to the way that we choose to behave and what drives our choices. Here’s a particular quote from the book that fascinated me: ” It would appear that our need to be accepted, respected, and so forth is weighted as equal or nearly as equal to our drive to survive.” When you think about your own success and why you engage in bad habits that don’t lead you to success, it’s fascinating to think that we don’t put ourselves out there for fear of rejection. Ultimately, when it comes to thriving in business, you have to accept the very rejection that you fear at some level.
