A Few of My Favorite Books to Reveal The Leader Within!

Updated: May 24, 2021

Oh, that smell! You may think I’m talking about coffee (ok yes, I love that too, AND) the smell of books when you walk into a vintage bookstore. There is simply nothing like it! It’s the knowledge and stories waiting to be discovered within each book’s pages. As I walk in, you will catch me pausing to fully take in the smell and deciding which section to explore first!

Here are a few of my favorite books!

The 5 AM Club by Robin Sharma

This is a quirky little story with lots of nuggets and a system that has shifted what’s possible in my life and business. It has allowed me to clarify exactly what I want, filter out the distractions, and stay focused on the goals I want. In order to do that, I had to make space and time for what I said I wanted! Next its time to get into action and implement to make concept reality. I did just that and it turned my life upside down – in a good way.

Caution, it is not for the faint of heart. It takes effort, energy, and lots of discipline to unravel old limiting beliefs and habits while building new ones. This consistent effort pays off over time (66 days to automate) and becomes a new way of living. This was recommended to me over the years, and I didn’t see the value until I needed an edge. I admit I have had some stops and starts personally AND I believe its worth it! You’re AM and PM routines are critical not just to what you do but how well you do it each day!

Dare To Lead by Brene’ Brown

I genuinely believe Leadership must come from within YOU first and then to others. Over the years I have had the pleasure to work with natural leaders, reluctant leaders, and even a few unsuspecting leaders in my practice. You can’t give what you don’t have to life, business, or your community! An amazing book on becoming, building, and maintaining personal leadership. How to have courageous conversations with yourself and others. And then gives the practical tools to make an impact and shift from where you are now to where you want to be.

Simple is not easy and the internal heart work takes consistency. Venture in if you want quality relationships, open honest communication, and a future you don’t need a vacation from. It’s my go to book to keep me focused on the best of me mind, heart, and soul! It explores your core values, fear, failure, restarts, and just plain keeping on in the midst of whatever else is going on around you. Not simply a favorite book but a favorite author as well. Enjoy your copy here!

Who’s in Your Room? By Ivan Misner, Stewart Emery, and Rick Sapio

Outstanding concept of who we allow into our lives. Have you heard the quote by Jim Rohn, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Like it or not people have influenced some for the better and some for the worst in our lives. This book allows you to identify the core values you want in your life and adjust accordingly. No, we can’t always eliminate the words that another has said or how it’s made us feel AND we can limit how much time and space we give them! Time to alert the Doorman to a new standard.

A wonderful book on who you want to BE or become in this life. Explore the boundaries of what you will tolerate, invite, and celebrate in your life, business, and community. If you want a book to check your thinking, give you deeper intentions with purpose, or simply discover how you connect with others, take time to explore this book.

What we put into our brain matters! Fill it with the best of your hopes and dreams to get outstanding results over time. Yes, I do also regularly use Audible when I travel or my eyes are tired. This is my favorite escape while driving no matter how much traffic is on the road. Whichever way you choose to “read” and expand your brain I hope you check out these books and enjoy them like it did.
