I am totally committed to reaching the goals that I have set, so much so that I’ve decided to do things differently this time. Instead of just making a list of goals and leaving it at that, I’m going to really become educated in the topics of my goals. I feel that if I can get a real understanding of what it takes to accomplish my goals from the experts, then I can go at this with a more realistic point of view. It takes away from the shock value of all of the hard work that really comes with completing goals. Also, I want to create a plan for each goal and I’m hoping that by becoming more educated on the topics, I’ll be able to plan better.
So I have purchased a few books that I’m anticipating will help me on my journey. Some I have already started reading and some I will begin reading soon. I wanted to share them because I’m sure they will be beneficial to you as well. Check them out below.
Successful Women Think Differently by Valerie Burton
I have just begun reading this book and already, I’m inspired. The author mentions that there are 3 fundamentals of success. They are purpose, resilience, and joy. This really gave me a lot to think about. It made me ponder on whether or not I am fulfilling my purpose in life; and what is my purpose in life. I’m enjoying this book and I can’t wait to see what other thought provoking tips she’ll give.
Capture Your Style by Aimee Song
Being that I just “subscribed” to Instagram a couple months ago, I’m still considered an Instagram newbie. However, this book has taught me so much that I didn’t know that I can now apply to my own Instagram account and other social media accounts. Aimee gives amazing tips on taking great pictures and creating great pictures (yes, there is a difference).
The Daniel Fast for Weight Lost by Susan Gregory
I actually completed The Daniel Fast last year around this time. And this book was very helpful during the fast because it provides some very good recipes and tips. It’s a great read as well especially if you’re trying to go the vegan route.
#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso
I haven’t begun reading this book yet but I am looking forward to it. This book tells the story of Sophia Amoruso, Founder and Executive Chairman of Nasty Gal (one of my favorite online retail stores), and how she basically went from rags to riches. I’ve been told that it’s a good one!
The Morning Miracle by Hal Elrod
I am still reading this book right now. One of the things that the author speaks about is the “early morning wake up”. The “early morning wake up” really means getting up about an hour or so before your usual wake up time. Many highly successful people attribute their success, at least in part, to rising early. I’ve attempted this a few times and I must say that it is does work. I find myself to be a lot more productive throughout my day when I wake up earlier just to get my mind right before the day begins.
From Paychecks to Power by Shannaan Dawda
This book was written by one of my fellow Georgia Southern University Alumni. He is very well versed in all things financial. I’m still at the beginning of this book and what I’m really enjoying about it is that his story is very relatable. It’s almost identical to mine which means that it’s probably identical to a lot of you out there. I’m especially excited about this book because as I’ve stated before, getting out of debt is going to be the hardest goal of mine to achieve. So I need all the help I can get.
So, tell me. What are you doing differently this time to achieve your goals that you didn’t do before. I’m always looking for tips. Do you know of any other good reads? Let me know in the comments below.
