It's hard to set aside "leisure time" but I am a firm believer in personal development. I am a lifetime learner. I get inspired by people and their stories. Without consistent progress in this area, we tend to get complacent. I know I do. So I try to make a habit of at least one book a month. I'm a HUGE fan of audible because it's so much more accessible to me and easier for me to complete a book. I swear my kids get an alert every time I sit down with a book. So I listen while I workout or on the way to work.
Here are my top 5 books from the last year that have truly made a mark on my life and reignited by inner boss babe.
As a female entrepreneur, we struggle to feel confident, we find it hard to balance it all, and we are WAY to hard on ourselves. This isn't just for those business owners but everyone with a side hustle or a need to become a better woman. You will find a new confidence in yourself and see all those judgments you put on yourself and others. She is of the opinion that when we all win, we all win.
I love this man. He is straight forward and will pull you right out of the funk you are in with his simple, duplicatable logic. The reason so many of us fail is because we put a toe in the water and wonder why we aren't refreshed. We need to jump all in. Be 100% committed and TAKE MORE ACTION! The more action we take the more opportunities we have to succeed. How simple right? I promise you will see things in an entirely different light!
This books was written about me.....or for me it felt like. She hit hard on SO MANY LIES that I tell me self. Ones that have been debilitating and road blocks in my journey. But she shares how she defeated them when she had every reason not to. She may call you out in this book but for every reason she should because you are meant to be more! You just have to stomp out those lies that is keeping you from your true destiny. Check out this recent video clip from her.
We often get in our own way. This tell it like it is book helps you see all that you are keeping yourself from by "playing it safe". You have this power within you. It's already there. Built-in. It just needs to be released, encouraged and validated. Quit getting in your own way and start being the badass you were meant to be.
I haven't read of book of his yet that wasn't powerful but this one gets you thinking about how you can lead forward and backwards. Your impact of leadership can be seen and felt by more than just those that you think you are "leading". It shares how your authenticity and commitment play a huge role in your influence. It can change your interactions and impact on so many levels. No matter where you are in life or at what level, you can lead.
