Be Special (Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach)
Fantastic morale booster book. Jonathan Livingston seagull is an ordinary seagull except his power of dreamig big. He wants to challenge the status quo and in his incessant struggle for betterment he breaks all the rules of the game. He was outcasted for this; but then what....whenever somebody tries to attempt new....world used to ridicule and discourage. What happenend to Copernicus and Galileo, inspite of them right, they were ridiculed, teased and even punished. But like them, seagull was also sure of his convictions and that was perhaps his strong point....that he never feared from failure. He was able to overcome his limitations with patience, consistency and hard work. No body is special, divine and extraordinary or everybody is special, divine and extraordinary. We just need that attitude..." if he can do it why can't we" and that type of attitude helped in making Jnathan livingston seagull a special seagull. We also need dormant Jonathan inside us to wake up and become special.
