Think and Grow Rich
What I’ve concluded was most useful to me in this book is Hill’s simple breakdown of the ingredients required for success in any domain. I also found his lessons on how powerful the effects of information we ingest through our eyes and ears to be invaluable. Thanks to Hill, I’ve learned to monitor what I see, hear, and do in order to maintain sovereignty over my thoughts and decisions.
Now parts of this book can be confusing or even seem strange during your first read, but in time the lessons taught will prove themselves true in your day to day life. You’ll find things clicking and over time, your perspective and behaviors will shift dramatically if you’re truly committed to change.
I really can’t stress how important this book has been for me in taking control of my life. It’s not just a book about success strategies and tips, it’s a classic that teaches the reader how to have a solid understanding of what is required for success and a plan to enact it.

The Easyway to Stop Smoking
I smoked for a solid 5 years before I decided it was time to give it up. It would take me another year to finally put out my last smoke. This book is what finally did it.
Trying to stop smoking is a terrible experience. It sucks. You go a day, a week, a month without a cigarette and feel great the entire time. Then all of a sudden, the urge is back, this time in the form of a rationalization. “I’ll just try it out. I’m way over it, no way I’ll start smoking again.” You light up, take a drag, and regret every second of it. Feeling bad you figure “I already had one, might as well have another.” You’re back in the trap.
After a year of this vicious cycle, a friend recommended The Easy Way to Stop Smoking, a book her aunt (smoker of countless years) had read in a single night and never smoked again. I was sold. I picked it up and did the same.
I can’t describe what it’s like when you finally realize you’ll never smoke again. It’s a powerful moment – one of my FAVORITE feelings of ALL TIME. FREEDOM. No more talking yourself through the problem, no more rationalizations, no more wishing you could. It’s over. You’re free from those disgusting sticks of tobacco that had control over you for so long.
Ever interested in learning about mindfulness? The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is a great place to start.
Most of us live our lives worrying about the past or feeling anxious about the future.
I’ve been there myself.
We spend so much time in our heads, going over possible outcomes and variables we ‘should have’ done differently that we hardly leave ourselves any mental energy to enjoy life.
The Power of Now book will help you let go of all that mental chatter, making life infinitely more joyful and fun.
The Power of Now teaches the reader the priceless art of presence – the ability to live in the moment and enjoy life with a deep sense of happiness.
If you’re someone taking the leap, making a commitment to the path less traveled, this book is a MUST for amplifying your experiences throughout the journey.
Who Moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson explores four common reactions to change through a short story of mice and men, a maze (life), and that ever illusive cheese (reward).
Johnson reminds us of a few timeless principles for problem solving that may sound familiar, but are often forgotten.
Principles like accepting the current situation, paying attention to patterns, and focusing on new possibilities instead of dwelling on the past. All of these strategies are key to successfully navigating the maze of life with a positive outlook, getting out of it a favorable cheese.
I recommend this book to anyone experiencing change in their life or facing turbulence at work, in a relationship, or perhaps with a bad habit. It’s quick, fun, and easy to digest. What more could you ask for?
