Let’s be real, there are a lot of “self-help” books out there so I’m not sure how I found this gem, but I’m glad I did. If you’ve found yourself living in the past, or like me, constantly thinking about the future, instead of living in the NOW then I highly suggest you read The Power of Now.
Tiffany Haddish is hilarious and her book, The Last Black Unicorn, is no different. I opted for the audio version because Tiffany narrates it and she does not disappoint with the theatrics. A great story of “started from the bottom, now I’m here.” Consider the audio, and prepare to be entertained throughout.
I knew who Charlamagne Tha God was because of the very popular morning radio show, The Breakfast Club. I didn’t not like him nor did I like him but after reading his book, Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It, I’m a fan! Passion and perseverance all wrapped in this one. Get it, read it, digest it!
If you live life by routine, afraid to step out of your comfort zone, find yourself as an introvert but constantly think what if, The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes is a go-to narrative on how to get started saying Yes to things you normally wouldn’t do.
This book has floated around the web, been the topic of many conversations for years. The Four Agreements Ruiz covers are: Be impeccable with your word; Don’t take anything personally. Don’t make assumptions. Always do your best. Pick it up, as a starting point for every part of life.
Years ago, when I thought to start my blog, I researched all things blogging and how to get out there and start writing. I came across, the War of Art. This book is not only for writers, but anyone who is in a creative space, or have a “thing” they keep putting off but know in your heart it is what you’re suppose to be doing. Your passion. Why do we do that, put things off, needing it to be “perfect”? This book gives insight on why and how to overcome this obstacle that we battle within us.
The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene has sat on my bookshelf since it was released in 2018 and I am finally going to dive into it.
This is not an official recommendation, just yet. However, I have been intrigued with human nature since I can remember. I do not imagine this book will disappoint. Insert from the book, …”Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people’s masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose. Whether at work, in relationships, or in shaping the world around you…”
The Laws of Human Nature has 624 pages, this is going to take a while but I’ll be back to give my official review.
