    5 Books I’ve Read That Have Positively Changed My Life

    When’s the last time you read a great book?

    One that opened your mind to imaginative new ideas, broadened your worldview, & made a positive impact in your life.

    A few books are coming to mind already…..

    As someone who struggled to enjoy reading until I left university, I even surprise myself with my excitement of reading over the past 10 years.

    “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body” 

    This short quote by Joseph Addison sums it up perfectly.


    Continuing to read not only keeps our minds sharp, but it also helps us develop our perspective, communication skills, & imagination.

    Fact: Reading just one book a month puts you above a large majority of the population. The average adult only reads a few books a year (if that).

    In the video above, I share five books that I’ve recently read which have played a positive role in my life.

    Here are the following 5 books for reference below if you’d like to read one (as shown in the video).

    Book #1: Linchpin by Seth Godin

    Book #2: Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

    Book #3: Born to Run by Christopher McDougall

    Book #4: Talent is Overrated by Geoff Colvin

    Book #5: Playing with Fire by Theo Fluery

    It’s important to share book recommendations with one another in order for us to grow and expand our knowledge past our own personal viewpoints.

    Example: You may share a fascinating book you’ve read with me that I otherwise would have never known about. The same holds true if I share a book with you.

    By absorbing a wide variety of wisdom from non-fiction books to fiction, New York Times bestsellers to literature no one’s heard of, you’ll become a more well rounded individual in all aspects of your life.

    Share this with someone who could use a great read…..

      Thanks Kevin! Always seems like it’s one of the books I always refer back to & read again (along with 4HWW & a few select others).

      Any good book suggestions from your shelf that you’ve read recently?
