Three Awesome Affordable Book Suggestions

fb-share-the-book-21) The code of the extraordinary mind: This book written by Vishen Lakhiani is a MUST READ. It changes the way you see life and the world and shows you “how” you can work towards achieving your best life and becoming the best version of yourself. It is NOT your everyday self-help book. It is unlike anything I have read and you get awesome online resources to help you on your journey when you purchase the book, which you can do via amazon or the Mindvalley website at a minimal cost! On the other hand, I did not agree with the author’s approach to religion but other than that, it is a book that has been written after lots of intensive research and various really cool experiments. It is an enjoyable read and each chapter feels like a journey. Consider it an investment.

What I loved about it: It is very applicable and very hands on!

How it has helped me: I have learned to celebrate the little things in life and to appreciate various traits that I have as tools that can help me to achieve my goals!
It taught me that any goal is achievable because it is about how bad you want it and how much you are willing to sacrifice for it. It provides daily mental exercises that have helped me think a lot more positively than I am known to, making each day more enjoyable and easing my stress levels.
I started to question everything we have been taught to believe about the world and to push beyond the borders that have been set- creating my own reality- and not depending on everything that society holds as true.

41qAsPNoVGL._AC_UL320_SR240,320_2) The power of now by Eckhart Tolle: I have not finished reading this yet, but I am more than half way through and I love how it breaks down the importance of enjoying the “now” in other words enjoying your journey and not just the destination. It explains the “how” so you can try it for yourself. Jordan used the audio version and highly recommends this. You can download either on amazon as well at a minimal cost.

What I love about it: It is helping me appreciate every second of each day and it is improving my emotional intelligence and how I interact with people.

51LfsTX21oL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_3) Relentless by Tim Grover: I have also not finished this one, but it is a great motivational book! As a former athlete, it reminded me of why I loved track and it is helping me channel/transfer those sportsmanship techniques into how I pursue my day to day goals. Even if you were never an athlete, it explains the processes that keep an athlete moving ahead in the face of defeat and gives tips on how you can apply this to your life. It describes the three different types of “go-getters” out there and helps you discover how you can make the most of what is in front of you to get to where you want to be.

What I love about it: It keeps me on my toes and keeps me pushing every day no matter how disappointing or challenging things get!

  1. Hi, Abby! Thanks for these book suggestions. I’m considering the first two because they ring true for me, and most importantly offer ways for *how* to live in the present moment and live up to your best self. That’s where my head is at too! I read your bio and admire your focus on sustainable development. My mom calls international citizens, like yourself, “Heartizens.” I’ll keep an eye out for more of your writing. 🙂
