I love to read and I am constantly devouring books from my mentors and those I respect in the personal development field. It has taken me many years though to develop the success habit of reading each day.
I do believe that feeding my mind new information is one of the best things I can do for my growth and development so I've made this habit a priority. I have begun to treat this activity as equal to working out - they are both exercising my body, just different parts.
Here are a few of my recommended general success resources:
The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. This book is a great introduction to building success habits starting out with some basic principles upon which he builds throughout the book. This is a foundational guide to a success mindset.
The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People by Steven Covey and his sequel, The Eighth Habit are both well respected books in this field. Steven is practically the father of time management and I find myself referencing these books on a regular basis, they are a staple for successful people.
The Code of the Extraordinary Mind by Vishan Lakhiani is not your standard personal development book which is probably why I like it. Vishan is a big believer in personal responsibility and challenges his readers to question their patterns and create positive, intentional habits.
How To Live A Good Life by Jonathan Fields has an interesting take on how to develop practices to insure that one area of your life doesn't take all your energy and efforts. This book takes the reader through a daily routine to help keep aware of daily needs.
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy is a book that has been on my list for years and now is finally on my iPad and is my current read. This book is about small incremental changes and how they add up over time. Even a one degree shift over time makes a huge difference and Darren writes about where to make those shifts.
Those are a few of my success resource recommendations. If there are other topics you are interested in, feel free to email me at Elizabeth@ThriveThisDay.com for my recommendations.
