I was contemplating lately whether I have been making progress in my life towards meeting my goals. Because of this website, I can remember years ago when I felt devastated and alone. I felt like such a failure! Of course, now I know that isn’t the case, but I still find myself reading the same types of books. Books that focus on obtaining success through becoming what we think about. I am not talking about financial success. However, that is a part of it. I am talking about living a healthy life that is success driven by our relationships, work, families, and community.
Every book I have read seems to focus on the same principles, and I find that comforting. They even tie into what the bible talks about as far as living life in the present, having joy and peace. I have struggled with all these things in the past, especially after the divorce. Even today they crop their ugly head because let me tell you… if you have children with your ex-spouse they NEVER go away. You are always going to have to deal with them to some extent, and the more emotionally healthy you are, the better. And that is what these books have helped me to achieve.
We are products of our thinking and belief system. If we take responsibility for our lives and our actions we can become successful but if we live in a negative – victim-like state we will always feel we got the short end of the stick.
Here are my most recent and favorite books:
Starting with my most favorite, this book is electronically downloaded and is packed with useful information. It is called Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle! Great 300+ page book that goes far beyond living a healthy life. It also includes other books such as; The Science of Goal Achievement, Self Image Secrets, Success Semantics, Motivation Propulsion Systems, The New Visualization Breakthrough, and a couple of others. This collection of books will push you in the right direction.
