Awaken the Giant Within offers actionable and practical advice on how to turn your life around. This book WILL get you to “take action” like no one else. I’d recommend grabbing his Get the Edge: A 7-Day Program To Transform Your Life program as well. It’s perfect for when you’re stuck in traffic.

Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It by Kamal Ravikant – If you’ve spent most of your life caring for others but never caring for yourself then this book will change your life as it did mine. You can breeze through it in less than 40 minutes. I recommend reading it twice and following his step-by-step instructions on how to love yourself. Also, pick up his other book Live Your Truth.

Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv – As a kid, I spent a lot of time outdoors – playing and exploring, so I was naturally drawn to this book. I’ve always known about the health benefits of being in nature. This book confirmed it.

The Gift of Fear and Other Survival Signals that Protect Us From Violence by Gavin de Becker – His message is simple: we have fear for a reason. Fear is a very important survival mechanism – by ignoring it, we open ourselves to those who would harm us. Another highly recommended book; the pre-attack indicator tools in it could save your life.

The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael A. Singer – Read this book!

The Book of Est by Luke Rhinehart – Author describes what it was like to attend the original Est training. If you’ve been to a Tony Robbins or Landmark seminar – you’ll enjoy this book.

Living Loving and Learning by Leo F. Buscaglia – If you aim to become a kinder and more loving person then this book will have served its purpose. It’s full of inspiration that will guide you to becoming a more loving human being. Here’s a review I found online: This is a book that will make you feel better about the life you are living. It makes you see people and your environment in a more uplifting light without being preachy. For anyone who needs to remember what feeling happy is like, read this book. I read this book over two years ago, and pick it up from time to time to read certain parts or to just browse through it once more. Each and every time I pick up this book, I walk away with a smile on my face and in my soul. This book helped me to re-define who I am so that I could become the more caring, loving person I want to be. And to think, all I had to do first was love myself! Amazing!!
