My Rating: 3.5/5

Principles of Success Made Easy - 14 easy steps to climb the ladder of success is the culmination of my onerous efforts of writing something simple yet relevant. It is a pragmatic account of the fundamental principles of achieving success by self-help and is the distilled essence of my years of research and understanding of the dynamics of success. This practical manual serves as a step-by-step guide to climb the ladder of success. It gives both an in-depth view and a time-tested approach to succeed and chronicles 14 golden principles of achieving success. The principles are wide-ranging and apply to success in any sphere of life. My own life has been transformed by the principles enshrined in this book. Therefore, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be successful in life and seeks happiness. Principles of Success Made Easy - 14 easy steps to climb the ladder of success would prove to be not only a guidebook for success but also a reservoir and storehouse of strength and motivation. I am sure all my readers would be able to relate to this book, which has been carefully tailored just for them. They would be tempted to read this self-help manual over and over again in order to assimilate its contents and incorporate the principles in their lives. After all, as is said, 'a good book becomes a part of you'.

A step by step guide to take charge of your own life. 
The book is divided in 14 chapters and Roopleen has done a wonderful job in describing each and every aspect of each one in detail. They are beautifully written and they are even divided in sub-sections which makes them more comprehensible.

14 steps mentioned in the book are:

  1. Draft the Blueprint of Your Life
  2. Believe in Yourself
  3. Build Yourself Up
  4. Let Confidence Be Your Hallmark
  5. Never Give Up
  6. Visualizations and Positive Affirmations
  7. The Tripod of Success- Hard Work, Perseverance and Discipline
  8. Identify Your Achilles’ Heel
  9. Skills you Need to Master
  10. Get Tough With Stress
  11. Organize Yourself- Declutter Your Life
  12. Acknowledge and Celebrate Your Success
  13. Be a Winner
  14. The X-Factor
What I really liked about the book is the flow and the quotes used. Each quote is valid and true in real life. They motivate you to do something good in life.

Example - 
"Its not who you are holds you back; Its who you think you are not" - Anonymous
"The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goals; The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach" - Benjamin Mays

The book also has important tips in the end of each chapter, which helps reader take important notes.

I really like the cover, it is apt and communicates the motive of the book. 

What, as per me, is lacking is examples and narration. For someone who is well experienced in their field and work, the book will act as a guide. However for younger generation, who need more guidance and support, some relevant examples would have been helpful.

My overall rating to the book is 3.5/5

It is a decent read. Do give it a try.

Lots of Love
