Before you can change your life, first you need to change your mind. We are conditioned in so many ways by today’s society and there are so many things we believe and accept that simply aren’t true or quite what they seem. Do you believe you have the power to change your life simply by changing your mind? Do you know that you may actually be stopping yourself from making more money with self-sabotage? Sounds crazy but it could be true.
Here are my top 6 books to help you on your journey to changing your mind, changing your outlook on life and to ultimately motivate and inspire you to be better.
The Success Principals
Subtitled “How to get from where you are to where you want to be”, this book is an all-inclusive guide to achieving success in your chosen field. In the book, Jack Canfield teaches 67 principles that successful people follow in and shows how you can implement them into your own life in order to be a success yourself. If you are looking to succeed in something, make a big change or reach a big goal then this book is sure to help you on your way.
Infinite Possibilities: The Art of living your dreams
Challange your most basic belief systems with this powerful book by Mike Dooley. Guiding you through deep metaphysical questions such as who am I? Why am I here? Did I really choose this? What true inner peace is. You come to your own conclusions about the power within yourself and how you can change your world simply using your emotions. There are a number of other books that you can read by Mike if you like this one.
Feel the fear and do it anyway
This book is great for anyone who lacks confidence or feels that they are not reaching their full potential. The basic premise laid out by Susan Jeffers is that fear indicates we’re going in the right direction not that we should stop. If we really want to grow as a person we need to do things we fear. It also touches on the power of positive thinking and how our worry mentality actually makes things worse than if we accept bad things when they happen and move on.
The Secret is an international bestseller and for good reason. It maps out “The law of attraction” and how the world brings to you what you envision. If you think about positive things and envision good coming into your life, money, relationships, health, then that is what you will get. And the opposite is true. Rhonda Byrne traces the origins of this idea back across the ages to many ancient civilisations. It really is a must read if you are on the path to improving your life.
Get Rich Lucky Bitch
A personal favourite of mine and not just because of the name! In this book, Denise Duffield-Thomas walks us through our own subconscious and prods at our money blocks and systems of self-sabotage. She explains how as women we are conditioned to believe that money is bad, causes bad in the world and having money will make us a bitch. We must overcome these subconscious beliefs if we are to ever reach the income levels we want or deserve. Charge what you are worth and make the money you deserve!
The 4 hour work week
This book is a great place to start for anything thinking about quitting their 9 – 5 so that they can travel the world. Tim Ferriss set up an automated dropshipping business along with other income streams and uses a series of strict rules around working that allow him to work only 4 hours per week. It sounds amazing and it truely is. In the book he gives you his complete systems and tips on outsourcing the work so you can spend your time doing the things you love. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in e-commerce, dropshipping and automated business models.
