Summer Time Good Reads

There is more than one way to live your life adventure.  More than one way to get unstuck and move forward in life.  Reading is one of my favorite ways to get a new perspective.  It helps me see areas where I have a blind spot to moving forward and living the life I was meant to live.

Maybe you like audio books, maybe you read on your Kindle or just have to have a solid book in your hand.  I like to do all three.  Summer time always seems to be a time when people slow down long enough to read.  All the summer reading lists come out.  I personally love to read everything from sci-fi to personal enrichment books.  When I’m looking to take myself to a new personal level or direction I find there are dozens and dozens of books out there.  It’s hard to narrow it down and it can be confusing.

Here are my picks for anyone looking to build your personal game this summer or maybe just find your game this summer.  Each of these books has challenged me and given me new insight into being the best that I was created to be.  Making it easy for you with links for each book.  Go grab them and enjoy your summer! 

Everybody Always by Bob Goff – Totally will challenge you and how you see and treat other people.  Bob has a unique way of telling a story that will have you laughing and crying.  You will remember this book and his stories.  Excellent read.

15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell – This one really gives you solid ways to grow personally and professionally.  Excellent read to move forward in your life no matter what season of life you are in.

You are a Badass by Jen Sincero – I love how Jen uses humor to be direct about how we think about ourselves.  She also calls out the b.s. and helps you see how we are our own worst enemies.

Daring Greatly by Brene’ Brown – Such a good read for those of you who are traveling the journey of faith.  Brene’ has a gentle way of getting to the point.  You will love this book.

The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon – This one will check those negative thoughts you have and help you overcome them.  By the end of the book you will be the CEO….read the book to find out what that REALLY means.

The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron – This is a journey, be prepared to do the work to take you to the next level personally and professionally.  It reminded me of who I was deep down inside.

Can’t wait to hear how these books encouraged you and challenged you!  Happy reading everyone!
