This year has been full of challenges, however it has also given us the time to reflect & introspect. Who would have thought that the things we enjoy like travelling, hanging out with friends & partying the night away – all shall come to a pause.
The current situation has shown us what really matters & re-introduced the joy of cooking meals, spending time with family, looking after our health & mental well being. Personally, I find myself reading more books now. My Job, Travel & Social life took up so much of my time that I didn’t even realize when I stopped reading.
So today, I wanted to share my top 5 Book suggestions that will pump you up to be positive, smart & productive:
Eat that Frog! by Brian Tracy
This book shares 21 ways to deal with “Procrastination”. Since I have a huge problem of piling things up till the very end, I was tempted to read it. So happy that I did. As a result of the quick read I recalled my pattern of usually keeping things till later. It was interesting to understand how crucial it is to get the important or uneasy tasks done away – First thing!
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
Uncertain times can lead to financial burdens. It’s very important to understand money & how to make it work for you. I would definitely recommend this easy to read yet fascinating book which throws light on money, mindset problems & the concept of growth with assets.
The Secret by Rohonda Byrne
Do you think you can have a good life? That amazing job, a loving partner & financial success? I have truly become more grateful & aware about my life after reading this book. Above all, it has the Power of shaping a Positive Mindset. I keep going back to the chapters (randomly) whenever I feel stuck or low and it always makes my mood go up!
Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon
Recently finished reading this book and must say all the points shared are so relevant. It will make you think about your work & how sharing the journey with your audience can benefit you in the long run. To conclude this book highlights the positive side of not thinking to much, being open, getting inspired & being invloved with others.
7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
Aren’t we intrigued by some people who have that spectacular charm & always seem to be so put together. Give this book a read if you want wisdom on handling problems & opening up to opportunities. The points may seems basic but in practice we tend to miss out on these.
Hope you make time to read these books & more importantly use it in your daily life. Here’s a motivation post that was infact my first blog post, this blog is a result of being inspired by such books.
I would love to know which Books have inspired you..
