The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (book) by Stephen Covey[edit | edit source]
“Your life doesn’t just happen,” Covey writes. “Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you. The choices, after all, are yours. You choose happiness, sadness, decisiveness, ambivalence and success. You choose failure, courage and fear. Just remember that every moment, every situation, provides a new choice. And in doing so, it gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently to produce more positive results.”
Covey sold more than 20 million copies of 7 Habits, which has been called one of the most inspiring books ever written. Covey was named among TIME Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Americans, and he holds the Jon M. Huntsman Presidential Chair in Leadership at the Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University.
