Words by Kenny Adaba

Welcome to the November edition of the kennsybookclub! For the people reading my blog for the first time, kennsybookclub is a monthly post on kennysdiary where I review a book we read together for that month. 

This month’s choice of book was “THE SUCCESSFUL AUTHOR MINDSET” By Joanna Penn. 

THE SUCCESSFUL AUTHOUR MINDSET is a book for people who are interested in becoming a successful author. The writer has also used this book to share with her readers the issues you will experience as a writer. 

 If you are a writer who is just starting out or if writing is your career and you are willing to improve, I will recommend you should start with this book. reading this book is essential as it will get you into a frame of mind where you will have no choice but to believe you can do it. 

As someone who blogs and is hoping to one day write a book, this book was exactly what I needed. It is one of the most useful writers books I have read so far.  

Reading the Struggles and issues Joanna has gone through in her 10 years of being a writer was interesting and motivating. It makes you feel better knowing that other writers including famous ones goes through the same issues as you when it comes to writing.

Joanna used this book to give great advices like…. Well, if you want to find out, make sure you purchase the book! The writer’s advice was all actionable and practical. 

I will definitely be reading his book again and again as I continue on my writing path. 

Kenny’s Takeaway Quote 

if you want to be a successful author, you have to develop the skills you are lacking – Joanna Penn 


Changes in life!

Life doesn’t stop for anybody

The older I get, the more I realise we will always experience minor or major changes in our lives and the funny part is that no one actually notices it.

Change happens in different ways. For example, a new job, going back to school, getting married, or buying a house. This transition, will often have an effect on our world and most of the time we are not even prepared for it. I remember the days I was not bothered about anything. But now, everything about my future and what I want out of life bothers me. As we move forward in life, our priorities will change and they will make our life different from what it previously was.

In this past one year, one of the most amazing things and changes I have discovered and noticed in myself, is my love for reading. Growing up, I used to find reading boring and it’s still so surprising to me how reading as now become a part of my life. Also, I think starting a blog contributed to my sudden love for books.

I believe there is still a lot of hidden things in my future to discover and cherish and I can’t wait to share them with you guys!.

KENNYSBOOKCLUB: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind


When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost win. 


Welcome to the October edition of the Kennysbookclub! For people reading my blog for the first time, Kennysbookclub is a monthly post on kennysdiary where I review a book we read together for that month.  

This month’s choice of book was SECRETS OF THE MILLIONAIRE MIND written by Author T. Harv Eker

Secrets of the millionaire mind as to be one of the most inspirational and motivational book I’ve read. I will say, it’s a great book for people willing to grow financially, want to be rich and remain rich. This book will also help you change your mindset. 

The author has used this book to teach his readers how to observe their way of thinking and to challenge their limit, thoughts, habits and actions regarding money.

Harv has used this book to help his reader raise their consciousness. Harv defined consciousness as observing your thoughts and actions. 

This book explains the important of an individual money blueprints and how it is formed. Since reading his book, I now understand that some of the things we believe in are things we’ve been programmed to believe and are not necessarily true. For example, Harv said the reason most people remain broke is because they have words such as “there’s never enough” or “not everyone can be rich” built inside their subconscious mind. 

In the second part of this book, Harv gave his reader seventeen ways rich people think and act differently from poor and middle class people. Which are; well, you will have to purchase the book to figure out what these principles are. 


“rich people are committed to being rich, poor people want to be rich
