With the New Year just around the corner, it’s an excellent time to reflect and make changes in the way you live and work. One simple place to start is through reading. There are endless books available to help you gain perspective and refocus your creative energy for a better year ahead. Here are three examples to begin with:
Choose Yourself by James Altucher
In this book, author and entrepreneur, Altucher, discusses how we are made up of many bodies: emotional, spiritual, mental and physical. Each of these separate bodies needs care and attention in order to thrive as a whole. Choosing yourself is a concept that essentially means putting yourself first in terms of investing in learning, achieving, growing and creating. It showcases real-life examples and studies that bring the author’s theories to life. It also discovers other ideas, like how rejection can be an opportunity for improvement and how to refocus creative energy into self-improvement.
Illuminate by Nancy Duarte & Patti Sanchez
This book focuses on making change in the world around you. It discusses how leadership skills and communication tools are vital to persuade others to support your vision, so you can realize your dreams. It theorizes that those who truly change the world, like Steve Jobs, do so simply because they believe they can and are able to communicate that to their audiences – and eventually motivate them to become followers. This book also discusses the stages of a dream or vision and how to carry the torch forward with it, so you can bring it to life.
The Power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
This book is designed to help you live a better life, in work and at home. It teaches you how to slow down in order to actually accomplish more and how a positive attitude can bring about better results. It also explains how to give negative thinking the boot and stop worrying in order to create a more rewarding life and career.
If you’re looking for a different path forward in the New Year ahead, these are three great reads to begin with. Each of these books will help you change your perspective and the way you think, so feel more inspired and can re-channel your energy into achieving your dreams.
