Have you ever felt like you were on that damn hamster wheel? Hustling and bustling and you don't know where or HOW to get off? Where to start? Insert awesome books below to help you hop off now!
Why hello, sunshine! You know that 99.99999999% of all successful (and I mean most heart, body, mind and financially secure people) people read. And they read books that help them be better. Not that 50 Shades Of Grey Smut (okay, so I read a little bit of that too) all the time, but the books that challenge you, challenge your mind and want to be better sort of books.
And today is your lucky day because I'm going to share 10 books that have changed the way I think. I have read almost all of these more than once. When I go through a second or third time, I always find more tiny nuggets of wisdom that I didn't see the last time I read or listened to the book.
Let's get started!
10 Books For Success I've Loved
May Cause Miracles by Gabrielle Bernstein. This book is an amazing guided book to get you more connected to yourself, God and learning to listen to your intuition and instincts again. I love Gabby's truth and just how I felt after doing the 40 days of exercises.
The Energy Of Money by Maria Nemeth. I didn't think I would like this book, the cover wasn't very pretty and it really just didn't look how I wanted to feel (yes, I know it doesn't make sense, but still). Yet, in one of the private FB groups I'm in, a few different ladies raved about it, so I got it. And it rocked. my. world.
No Matter What by Lisa Nichols. I've never read a book quite like Lisa's before. She is an amazing storyteller and as you read or watch her, you just feel everything she is feeling. I recently watched her program Speak & Write To Make Millions and that was utterly life changing for me.
My hope is that I can tell a story as well as she does and move my audience. She's pretty amazing!
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. I've listened to this book probably 5 times. I actually bought it on CD a few years back before I knew what Audible was and I just got it on Audible a month ago and I've listened to it twice.
If you need no fluff, actionable tips this is a great book for you. This isn't at all woo woo, this is strictly
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. This book shakes me every single time I open it. It is amazing the stories that we tell ourselves or the shame or guilt we feel and how we can blast through that.
If you have ever needed to feel related to, like someone gets you and what you can do to get through the shame, fear or guilt we are taught to feel, you'll resonate with this book and you'll want to open it time and time again.
The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone. If you are looking for another no fluff book with pure action items for you to take, you will like this one. Grant Cardone isn't woo woo at all. He might seem a bit “harsh” but this is one of those books that actually inspire action and gets you off your ass.
If you need that, boom – You're welcome!
The One Thing by Gary Keller. I don't know how to describe this book except that it helps to get you focused again. As entrepreneurs we all have thousands of ideas floating through our heads and it gets hard. This book helps to get your focus back. It allows you to say no to the things that don't matter and focus on what does.
The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran & Michael Lennington. This is another book that you will reference time and time again. Just like The One Thing, this book gives you insane focus. Instead of creating goals for 12 months, you have a 3 month (12 week) year so you can get more done in a year.
Virtual Freedom by Chris Ducker. I am FIRM believer that you need to have help in your business. I used to be a Project Manager and I've had to outsource, hire & train staff. It is extremely helpful to not have all the eggs of work in your basket. Plus, my hourly rate is way too expensive to be doing tasks someone can do for $10 or $15/hour. This book teaches you how to outsource
The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. I have never been a morning person until recently (even my fiance is up at 4:45 running now – crazy balls, right?) and it is helping me so much! I feel like a completely different person and my income has increased too.
When I first started my miracle morning my income doubled that month. And I find that on the days I don't do my miracle morning process, I'm kind of a beast too. You can change habits from being a night owl to an early bird so you can catch your worm! Ha, I crack myself up.
Alrighty, we just blasted through the 10 books that I think can really change you, your life & your biz. Of course, there are tons more, but let's keep focus on one or two from the list so you can take what you learn and apply it.
As you can see, I'm always up for a good book. What are some books that moved you, your life or your business? Please share below!
