New book encourages readers to get more out of life

Author Baldev K. Seekri paves way to ‘Seizing Success: How Mindset Makes It Happen’

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – According to a 2012-2013 Gallup research, more than 80% of the working people in the world are not actively engaged in their jobs. They are there for the sake of being there. Author Baldev K. Seekri helps readers get more from life than simply going through the motions of life by providing the principles and the 10 commandments of developing a success mindset in his book, “Seizing Success: How Mindset Makes It Happen” (published by iUniverse).

 

In this book, seven great people share their personal life stories of discovering and navigating new paths of fulfillment – all done by developing the right mindset. Representing diverse cultural values and beliefs spanning the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa, the four men and three women cover a gamut of professionalism. Their valuable insights encompass the world of business, nonprofit organizations, education, leadership and executive coaching. Readers can journey with them as they share how they found the true meaning of personal success and develop their right mindsets to reach the pinnacle of genuine success.

 

“The goal of this book is very simple: to convince you how valuable and indispensable your mindset is to seek, attain, and grow your personal success which is lasting, meaningful, and enjoyable,” Seekri says. “I want to inspire you to learn putting the horse before the cart in your success journey-not the opposite way I did and spent most of my life chasing phantom success.”

 

Explained with lucidity and validated with true success stories of seven great people around the globe, “Seizing Success: How Mindset Makes It Happen” will make readers understand the essence and the indispensability of their mindset, and will inspire them to pursue their own genuine success rather than chasing success like a mirage and settling for a mediocre life.

BOOK REVIEW

 

A retired corporate executive takes a fresh look at the meaning of success.

 

Seekri (Organizational Turnarounds with a Human Touch, 2010) distinguishes his work
by suggesting that many books about success “are hooked on the methodology
and the management of success, not on the most fundamental piece of the puzzle:
our mindset of success.” The first section of the work does an admirable job of exploring
that mindset, demonstrating that true success is, in fact, “dictated by our mind
and guided by our heart.” In discussing mindset, the author calls upon some of his
own experiences and offers pertinent observations by experts. Of particular interest is
his intriguing chart contrasting the “classic mindset” with the “success mindset” as well as
the graphical comparisons of “shock and aftershocks of failure” and “shock and
aftershocks of success.” These insightful elements lend welcome illustrative support to
the text. Section 2 is the most compelling portion of the volume; it presents detailed
sketches of “seven role models.” These individuals exemplify “authentic success,”
writes Seekri, who searched for five years to identify them. The group is made up of
four men and three women of various ages and diverse backgrounds. Each person is
accorded a substantial chapter that includes biographical information, extensive quotes
from the individual, and the author’s astute comments about the triumphs each attained.
Enrique Brower is one relevant example; a Cuban refugee who came to the United States
as a child, he ultimately became a professor and executive consultant. “Success for me,”
says Brower, “is equilibrium of mind, body, and spirit.” Seekri’s perceptive assessment
of Brower’s achievement is summarized in “three priceless lessons” at the end of the
chapter. The other six stories are equally mesmerizing. The author closes this section
with an excellent encapsulation of the lessons learned from the seven subjects. The third
part of the book lists the “ten commandments” for developing a “success mindset.”
Here Seekri reprises some of the highlights of the seven tales and reinforces his own
thoughtful views on the topic.

 

Masterfully written and genuinely appealing; an intelligent, meaningful study
of success factors.
