The Thousandth Man by Rudyard Kipling
ONE man in a thousand, Solomon says.
Will stick more close than a brother.
And it’s worth while seeking him half your days
If you find him before the other.
Nine hundred and ninety-nine depend
On what the world sees in you,
But the Thousandth Man will stand your friend
With the whole round world agin you.
‘Tis neither promise nor prayer nor show
Will settle the finding for ‘ee.
Nine hundred and ninety-nine of ’em go
By your looks, or your acts, or your glory.
But if he finds you and you find him,
The rest of the world don’t matter;
For the Thousandth Man will sink or swim
With you in any water.
You can use his purse with no more talk
Than he uses yours for his spendings,
And laugh and meet in your daily walk
As though there had been no lendings.
Nine hundred and ninety-nine of ’em call
For silver and gold in their dealings;
But the Thousandth Man he’s worth ’em all
Because you can show him your feelings.
His wrong’s your wrong, and his right’s your right,
In season or out of season.
Stand up and back it in all men’s sight
With that for your only reason!
Nine hundred and ninety-nine can’t bide
The shame or mocking or laughter,
But the Thousandth Man will stand by your side
To the gallows-foot – and after!
Have you ever noticed that some people are in “Flow” as they journey towards Success?
From finances to relationships, opportunities to connections, things seem to come easily and their success seems magical and inevitable.
Rather than moving in a linear straight line predictable 9 to 5 manner.. some people move through their lives with ease and “luck” like dolphins surfing the flow.
Maybe you’ve even experienced that yourself from time to time?
The Success Spiral™ is the key that seemed to underpin them all.
It’s a great read, and a book that is both simple, subtle and powerful.
Meeting the Shadow

Kind of a compilation. Pretty intense at times. It gets you thinking and is interesting.
The idea is simple but the ramifications quite deep.
A lot of recent movies touch on these themes, and I think if you are really looking to grow you will learn a lot.

Theory of Constraints
What is this thing called the Theory of Constraints and how should it be implemented
Author: Eliyahu Goldratt M
Website: Eliyahu Goldratt M – Theory of Constraints
This book was recommended to me by Simon at www.WebTyrant.com having heard about it from Eugene Ware, Adam Spiel and Brad Fallon. I’m so glad I stayed around after Web Tyrant Live.. This booked changed my mindset about my business .. almost as much as E-Myth.
I’d recommend this to anyone that gets overwhelm and is trying to make a real difference.. not just add an extra £ here or there.
Eliyahu Goldratt M is an absolute genius.

Work On Your Business, Not In It
Author: Michael Gerber
I wish I’d read this book 10 years ago.. There are so many “Doh” moments, where I found myself going, that’s where I went wrong.. So many of us get it wrong, and this should be essential reading.. I can’t believe no one told me to read it before. (Many thanks to Simon Hedley, I owe you one for recommending this)
Michael Gerber’s The E-Myth Revisited should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting a business or for those who have already taken that fateful step. The title refers to the author’s belief that entrepreneurs–typically brimming with good but distracting ideas–make poor businesspeople. He establishes an incredibly organised and regimented plan, so that daily details are scripted, freeing the entrepreneur’s mind to build the long-term success or failure of the business. You don’t need an MBA to understand or follow its directives; Gerber takes time to explain buzzwords and complex theories. Written in a clear and well-paced manner, The E-Myth Revisited is like receiving advice from an old friend.
