Success Is a Choice: Ten Steps to Overachieving in Business and Life
by Rick Pitino
This book has nothing to do with Job Search, and EVERYTHING to do with Job Search! This is truly one of my all-time favorite books, so even though I don’t have an interview with Rick to share with you, I had to include it on my list. Rick is a very successful basketball coach, and I’m not even a basketball fan, but this book still resonates with me.
The idea that he very powerfully conveys is that success truly is a choice; it’s not a lucky break, it’s not a fortunate set of circumstances, it’s a choice. You choose to show up to that interview on time. You choose to study interviewing techniques. You choose to learn how to find hidden jobs and buy books on job search to help you land a job faster. These are all choices you can make to impact your search. This book is filled with real life examples of triumphs over unthinkable lows. I know the author has done some things out of character of the types of people I would follow, but I still really like this book and believe in its principles; I think you will too.
