Hello bookworms! I’m so excited to be sharing a blog post about books because I’m an avid reader and audio book fiend. These are some of the books that have helped me heal my worthiness-wounds and find inner peace. If you are looking for some of the most inspiring titles to add to your reading list then look no further!
YOU ARE A BADASS: HOW TO STOP DOUBTING YOUR GREATNESS BY JEN SINCERO
Okay. This book was one of the first “self help” books that I ever had the courage to pick up, and it was probably one of the best decisions of my life. This was the book that pulled me out of one of my darkest moments, and made my self-esteem SOAR. Jen Sincero has the best way of story-telling. Every page of this book is relatable, hilarious, and so inspiring. Jen reminds us that we all possess the power to be incredibly successful at anything we do. This book is a great place to start if you are intimidated by the self-help genre.
THE UNIVERSE HAS YOUR BACK: TRANSFORM FEAR TO FAITH BY GABRIELLE BERNSTEIN
The Universe Has Your Back is a book that truly put my mind at peace. I have always suffered from massive amounts of anxiety, and this book gave me tools that I use on a daily basis to help me feel safe, secure, loved, and at one with my surroundings and the present moment. If you love the law of attraction and meditating then this one is for you. It will teach you how to surrender to love and to free yourself from fear-based stories that you trap yourself in.
DARING GREATLY BY BRENE BROWN
I recommend Brene Brown for the more analytical minds that I know. Brene Brown has thoroughly researched courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. This is the book that made me fall in love with my favorite Theadore Roosevelt quote:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
In this book you will learn how being open and vulnerable can lead you to extraordinary places that you never dreamed you could go.
RISING STRONG BY BRENE BROWN
This book is best read after Daring Greatly. This book explains that when you make big, bold, and vulnerable choices there is a great chance for failure. Failure happens. Heartbreak happens – but you can only achieve greatness by getting back up after a fall and Rising Strong. If you are wrestling with doubt, shame, or feelings of failure then this book is for you. It will give you the tools you need to pick yourself up and start again.
YOU ARE A BADASS AT MAKING MONEY BY JEN SINCERO
I am addicted to this book. I could read this over and over again. Jen Sincero has a way of explaining money making that makes you want to leap out of bed in the morning in a whirlwind of productivity. If you are looking to take control of your finances, start a business, or make money by creating or doing something you love then pick this book up and read it twenty times STAT. Again, Jen’s writing style is so relatable that you will be able to see changes in your mindset almost immediately after beginning this page-turner.
BIG MAGIC BY ELIZABETH GILBERT
I struggled with this book at first. I think when I first picked it up it just wasn’t the right time for me. I started listening to the audio book recently and suddenly everything clicked. If you are an artist, which I believe everyone is, then you NEED to read this. It will inspire you to create and bring forth the hidden creative gems that are sleeping within your soul. ❤ It is a celebration of all that is creative. I can’t recommend it enough.
I hope that this post gave you some ideas for your reading list. Please check out some of these awesome titles. I’ll be sharing more book reviews as I am constantly devouring self-help books like it’s my job. 😉
