The Third Circle Theory does a great job at breaking down the different stages that a successful entrepreneur goes through throughout his journey to the top. There is advice for people who are just starting out and for people who are in the middle of it. As a successful entrepreneur myself, I agreed with most of the points made, whether it's about how to view the world, ...more

Deserves to be a bestseller... through Pejman's book, I was able to reflect on myself and find my own purpose.. I lvoe the concept of the three circles and it's amazing to see where I stand. Another book that should be read in school in my opinion. nothing more than values.

If you've read any self help book you've read this. Same stuff. What's more the Author finished berating other self help gurus only to turn round and do the same thing - sell you more stuff.

You want self help/Entrepreneurship go read Napoleon Hill or something. Anything.

A Great Book That Will Make You Look At Life And Society In A Totally Different Way!

In one of the many book Groups I'm in on Facebook the question was asked "What is the one book that changed your life?"

The thread was filled with all the usual suspects, Think And Grow Rich, Rich Dad Poor Dad, The Alchemist etc. All great books, but one comment stood out to me.

One guy was very adamant about The Third Circle Theory, and said it was a game changer. Now me being the personal development junkie

Nice book, interesting concepts. I will be re-reading this, since I found that some concepts were lost on me after the first read.
It seems to me that at least a second read is needed to internalize the concepts.
Basically, the author divides life in 3 circles, in which each one has different component/parts. Mastering each part would move you up to the following circle, until you reach the 3rd circle, in which you are actually an enlightened/fulfilled person, not only in your business but also in

This is a great read. I resonate with everything he said regarding the three circles and self-awareness. Take this book to heart. It's powerful.

Straightforward truth

The book is very concise. It talks about a general roadmap that can eventually take a person with a burning desire, from the sad pits of life, to the grand enjoyment of being free to be who he/she really is. By acquiring control over one’s emotions and lifestyle, it is possible to help the world at large in the full spectrum of the human experience.

I would recommend this book to people who strive to be the ultimate version of themselves. Perhaps the best thing about this

If you have an open mind and want to know what makes people like Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Steve Jobs etc so Great... This is the book for you! It digs deep into the concept of living outside of yourself and your own personal motives. Very interesting read and great for those who actually wish to leave an impact in the world!

Some good info. Top takeaways:
Belief is emotional, not factual!
Environment is an important aspect of the first circle.
Belief is stemmed from years of conditioning.
Therefore beliefs become a self fulfilling prophecy.

This book was nothing more than a collection of thoughts and general observations of a narcissist. He brands his broad generalizations and conclusions into some weird, branded theory that reminded me of Criswell's wildly inaccurate predictions.

Good reminder of purpose and using purpose to guide us, especially when under stress.

There is a lot of arrogance in this book - that some people who have mastered the third circle are better than others who haven’t.

fantastic concept. poorly written.
perhaps some of the worst writing that i've encountered in a long time. I stuck with it because it was such a cool and novel way of seeing the roadmap to success.
worth it

Ther first choice you make in life is who you see in the mirror, and what you have or don't have. Some of you never move past this stage, because you don't accept your circumstance, also known as your baseline. You sit there and blame the world for your current situation and grow bitter rather than accept your opportunity for growth. Even if you are not one of them, we all know such individuals; they are usually very negative and often have poor relations with friends and family, whom they blame ...more

This is one of the best, most-inspiring, books I've ever read, and I highly recommend it for any aspiring entrepreneur, or anyone simply trying to find purpose in their life, and make sense of the world in which we live.

The author's insight is crystal-clear and I had a few "a-ha" moments while reading this. This outshines anything else which I've read from this self-development genre.

Descriptions don't do this book justice.

Just read it and you won't regret it.

A reasonably accurate summary of why some people are "successful" and some people are not.
I'd recommend giving it a look, you will find yourself in there somewhere in one of the described circles/stages.

Great book! The biggest lesson I got from it, was the understanding of where you're at in your life/business. Being aware of what you know and what you don't know and how it is helping/hurting you. Also was another reminder, how there is no shortcut to success except handwork.

A good read. It provides a somewhat systematic view of how to advance one's mindset and emotions to prepare for entrepreneurship (not self-employment, but the kind that helps society advance). It does help you find some footing if you're rather lost or drifting in life.

A collection of cliched platitudes that make no sense when taken together. I lost patience pretty quickly. I think the guy is a poser.

“What was most interesting was that no matter what I started—like getting an education or a nice job—I never really found fulfillment, just temporary satisfaction. I bought new cars, homes, and luxury gadgets that many people dream of, but I got bored with them in a few months. I dated beautiful women, but became just as bored with them and moved on. But there was one thing that was constant that didn’t bore me. That was the knowledge gained from each experience.” 2 likes
