I use to hate reading books. Most of my life the thought of reading wouldn't even come into my head. One day I felt lost in my life and picked up a book. I was determined to change my life and finish that book.
Some how I fell in love with reading. Fast forward to today and I now own 120 + books and have read around 90 of them. I had failed in many different parts in my life over the years and books really inspired me to change my life.
When I read books I feel like I'm learning from others mistakes and successes. Learning what not to do and what to do. There is so much information in books on pretty much any topic you can think about.
Below I'll be sharing why I love these 8 books.
Your One Word: The inspiration for the change of direction for my business. This booked helped to build my business around my one word "inspire" I have a great passion for inspiring others to really go after what they want in life and reading this book inspired me so much. If you love what you do in life is it really work ?
Psycho-Cybernetics: I have always wondered why one day I'll be inspired to work hard on my life or business then another to lazy to get of the lounge. This book opened my eyes to how my mind works and why I do things in my life. I've always been fascinated about how my mind works and I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it.
Love Your Life Not Theirs: This book isn't another book about money. It showed me why I bought things I didn't even need. Why I come home from a holiday and seen on Facebook my friend going on a holiday feeling like my holiday was crap compared to theirs. I guess the title really speaks for itself.
The Four Agreements: I now live my life based on the four agreements. This book changed everything in my life. I couldn't recommend this book more highly. I would go into detail on this book yet its best if you read it and make your own mind up if this would work in your life.
The Everything Store: The story of how Amazon was built. I would say a must read book especially if you're building a website selling physical products or drop shipping.
Deep Work: Since reading this book I have been able to go deep and focus on clients work. When I was building websites for customers I would get so distracted by emails and my phone. This book helped me to unlock the power of going deep. I now turn my phone of and don't check emails for 4 hours straight while working on website packages. If I don't reply back to you straight away I'm most likely going deep. I now can finishing building websites in half the time it use to take. This book is perfect if you struggle to stay focussed.
Unlimited Memory: The reason I bought this book was to help remember all the valuable information I was learning from books. I use to have a crap memory and this book helped to unlock my memory. I now don't struggle remembering names and information I learn. Its a work in progress yet it has improved my memory more then I could ever imagine.
Blue Ocean Strategy: One of the best business books on the market. Its a old classic and highly recommend this book. This opened my eyes to what is possible in business.
