Recognized as one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Stephen R. Covey was the author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The book has sold more than 25 million copies in 40 languages throughout the world.
According to Covey, the most successful people have something in common: they think very differently about success than everyone else. Covey teaches these differences in order to make them usable in someone’s life.
Based on the study of 200 years of literature on success, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective
People is clear about one thing: the most successful people in the world all think differently.
They all live in a way that embraces three core ideas:
- Successful people move from dependence to independence by taking responsibility for their own life.
- Successful people move from independence to interdependence by succeeding through creating synergy with other people.
- Successful people live a balanced life, regularly making time to rejuvenate their body, mind, heart and spirit.
These three ideas are expressed through 7 habits, which anyone can learn. Once you have adopted these 7 habits you will not only begin to think and act like the most successful, effective people in the world…you can become one of them.
