By Posted on 0 3 m read

We are almost half way through the year. With that being said are their any goals that set for New Years that have now fallen by the waste side? Have you lost your motivation to work out or start that business? Well don’t worry because it happens to the best of us. Here are five books that can assist you in getting that hustler sprit back!


Year Of Yes: Do you have the tendcy to talk yourself out of things? Well if you do, you are not alone. In her book, creator of TGIT, Shonda Rhimes, tells a tale of how she was afraid of things such as public speaking and media interviews. During a Thanksgiving dinner Shonda’s sister uttered six words, “you never say yes to anything.” Shondra knew she could not go on like this so she challenged herself to say yes for a year to things that frightened her. The lesson that can be taught from this book is to rise to every occasion and face fear head on. In the end you will be pleased with the results.


You Are A Badass How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness And Start Living An Awesome Life: This is book that I swear by. In the book the author, Jen Sincero delivers a how to guide that includes advice, exercise and inspiration that help target behaviors that are self sabotaging and detrimental to our growth. By the time I had finished reading “You Are A Badass,” I was felt like my mindset had completely changed and I incorporated new behaviors that helped me walk in my bad assery.


Be You & Live Civil: Tools For Unlocking Your Potential & Living Your Purpose: “The first step to living in your purpose is to identify what sets you apart, as opposed to looking at what other people are doing and figuring out why you’re not like them.” I received this book as a gift I graduated college in 2016. I was feeling down because my peers were landing jobs at news stations and I wasn’t. I have always been bubbly while my peers were more serious. Now fast forward to 2018 and I’m doing great things and media too. One of the gems Karen Civil dropped in this book in this book is that you can be different and still succeed in life. We are in the social media so it is easy to get caught up in the lives of other and want to be like them. Karen encourages us to march to the beat of our own drum and stay true to ourselves.


Leave Your Mark: This book is all about advice on how to land your dream job. Author Aliza Licht gives tips for people who are in he beginning stages of their career and how to move the chain. She emphasizes on commutation and building a personal brand.


Prince Charming Isn’t Coming: How Women Get Smart About Money: A good friend of mine recommended this book to me after my boyfriend and I broke up. We were living together and he paid for everything. In the book the author, Barbara Stanny gives practical living advice and inspires women to take control of their money and their destiny.
