     One of the life changing books I have read 18 March, 2014 On
    The 7 Habits is a book very popularly known and a must read for anybody who wishes to bring about a change in his life and make his life effective and much better. In simple words "If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got". To bring about a change in what you want to get, you need to make a change in the way you do things.
    The book is a technique oriented book which lays down simple things to be followed to live your life effectively. It demonstrates in the introduction how different people can view the same things in different manner based on their preconceived notions and still both can be correct. It helps to understand how you should value others opinions.
    Each habit helps to inculcate a sense of achievement and accomplishment. I changed my ways of living based on each habit and find myself a considerably changed person. As a simple illustration, a very simple but strong statement is mentioned " Between the stimuli and response YOU have the freedom to choose". It gives a very strong message whatever you do, however you react, its because you did it that way. There is nobody else responsible for that in any way. This changed my perspective of life so much from negatives to completely positive. I could actually control my responses and thus my life.
    I could explain the habits all here, but I think the book merits a read and more importantly you need to understand and follow it yourself for experiencing the much needed change.
    I would highly recommend everyone this book and have a life changing experience.
