As you run around doing your final Christmas shopping this week, have you remembered your favorite person? (You!)
I know you do a lot for others in your life - your family and extended family, your co-workers or employees, those people who serve you in your favorite restaurants, cleaners, mail delivery people, etc. - but what about yourself?
As we stare down New Year's Eve and a whole new year of dreams and goals, why not give yourself a couple of books (or audiobooks) that can motivate and support you in achieving those dreams?
Here are my top five favorite motivational and inspiration books. If you haven't read them, then you're in for a treat...
#1. "The Advanced Formula for Total Success," by Dr. Robert Anthony. This is a classic and one that I read every year. It is packed with the truth about what is holding you back from achieving your dreams, AND it tells you how to release the breaks.
It is out of print, but luckily Amazon.com has many sellers still offering copies from a few bucks to over $40. Search for it today and get ready for a powerful, life changing book that you will enjoy for years to come.
#2. "Find and Use Your Inner Power," by Emmet Fox. I read sections from this book almost every day. It is a book of essays, each only a page to a page and a half long. The essays are about the law of attraction from a spiritual perspective. Simply one of the best books out there to be reminded of the truth.
I recommend you start every day by reading a page or two.
#3. "The Secret," by Rhonda Bryne. One of the most accessible books on the law of attraction. If you're not familiar with this concept, then this is a great introductory book.
Bonus book: Another great introductory book on the law of attraction is: "As a Man Thinketh," by James Allen. This book is probably available for free as an ebook. Great, quick read that will change the way you think.
#4. "The Success Principles," by Jack Canfield. If you're looking for a more complete, step by step, guide to setting and achieving goals, this book will get you there. Make sure you have a notebook handy as Jack will have you doing exercises as you plan the rest of your life.
If you're ready, Jack is, too.
#5. "The Complete Book of Phone Scripts," eBook for sales people. How could I not put the bestselling book of phone scripts on this list of books to help you have a killer 2017?
If you are in sales, then this is a must have. Let's face it: 80 - 90% of the objections and stalls you get are the same, day in and day out. You will be 100% more effective if you just take the time to script out the best practice ways of dealing with them. It's called being prepared. Plus, this is the gift that keeps on giving with over $500 worth of extra bonuses!
So there you have it. 5 (actually 6) books that will help you set goals and achieve them. Give yourself something that will continue giving for the rest of your life.
