Today’s fast-paced and high-stress culture has spawned thousands of self-help books, each promising to be the key to living a more successful life. With so much choice, it is easy for quality titles to get lost among the shelves.
But, Selfie of Success by IAS officer Burra Venkatesham is unique in its own way because it speaks about success in 360 degrees. With captivating stories of some well-known personalities from across the world Mahatma Gandhi to Escobar, Jack Ma to Ramoji Rao, Oprah Winfrey to Michel Jackson, the book gives the reader an insight into the reality and what does it really take to be a successful person.
“The definition of success varies from person to person. In general, the way people look at the world of success seems like it’s an end of everything and after success, they think the journey will be smooth and joyful. But, that’s not the case. My whole idea behind this book was to highlight each concept of success in a subtle manner,” says the author who is a self-made man.
“From a village background to where I am today, I have seen various levels of life. Through this book, I want people to ask themselves three questions before they embark on the journey of success. One, what is their intent; second, what is the content they want to employ in the process to be successful and third, what is the context after they become successful. Answer these before you go ahead for the journey,” says Venkatesham.
“Also, an individual should remember that if you chase success too much, it might lead to your personal destruction. Hence, focus on every side of it,” adds the officer of Telangana cadre, whose next book is lined up for next year. #KhabarLive
