There are so many people I am inspired by that I turn to on various occasions depending on where I am at during any particular point in my life.
There are a few podcasts that I think are great options both for motivation and to get to learn about people
Jonathan Fields has a podcast called Good Life Project and I am always impressed by his ability to interview people where I feel like I am in a friend's living room listening to a couple of friends chatting. His guests are always inspiring and the interviews are often introducing me to fascinating people, some of whom I’ve not yet known others I'm given a deeper understanding of their lives and challenges.
The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho is a book that I was introduced to by my children when they were in high school. I have since read this book many times over and it was one of the books that accompanies me as I travel across the world because of its timeless message of faith in the journey.
I am a huge fan of Richard Branson and I have read each of his biographies, Losing My Virginity and Like A Virgin. I am looking forward to picking up a copy of his newest book Finding My Virginity because he always helps me realize that no dream is too big and he exemplifies the type of CEO I aspire to be in my company as it grows.
I mentioned earlier on day two of this journey that Vishan Lakhiani was an inspiration to me. I am a member of a group he offers called the “Mindvalley Tribe” and I have read his book The Code of The Extraordinary Mind and it is high among my recommended reading list for inspiration.
These are a few of the books, podcasts and series I recommend and regularly enjoy. I also regularly get TED Talks delivered to my inbox and currently I am receiving the “31 Days of Ideas” series that they are delivering this month.
Now that I've shared a few of my inspirational resources - how about you? I'd love for you to share what your favorite reads, listens and sources are for inspiration.
