1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
I found this to be an interesting and thought-provoking book. The book is interesting for the variety of situations people and organizations might face in which the ideas and principles can be applied. From a better marriage and relationship with a spouse to more effective management in a business and among co-workers. It seems there are few times, outside of emergency situations, in which these seven habits cannot be applied.
2. Take Charge of Your Life by Jim Rohn
This one is an audiobook recorded in front of a live audience so you get that seminar feel. Jim Rohn is insightful in a comical way. He teaches by telling stories, and Jim has loads of good stories. Jim Rohn’s success formula is centered around the personal change needed to create success. In essence, this programme will teach you about making proactive, personal philosophical change. The audiobook covers all the areas needed to bring about such change. It is therefore very difficult to criticize the fabulous content. I think you will change your life if you act upon the information.
3. Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins
If you don’t know Tony Robbins then you’ve had to be living under a rock. Tony Robbins exemplifies his life coach teaching styles in a way that empowers the reader to self-fulfillment. This book forces you to conduct a reality check and take a hard look in the mirror. It helps you to realize your flaws and “TAKE ACTION” and do something about it. After reading this book I was able to get out of my depression and stop blaming others for my pitfalls. I went from a 6 figure job to unemployed and almost losing my home. I moved in with my parents and that is when I bought this book. Since then (2008) I have used the information towards my own benefit and accomplished things I never thought I could, money, happiness, health, and the most important lesson was to slow down and enjoy everything I do. I hope you are able to grab the flame from this book and empower yourself with the use of wisdom Tony has put together.
4. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
I felt that this book is for those trying to understand themselves at a spiritual level. I’ve never had the mind described in such a way but something inside me resonated with this one. Part of me (my mind) struggled with some of what’s talked about but Eckart explains why. The Power of Now was, no pun intended, was a powerful and enlightening read.
