5 Must-Read Favorites To Expand Your Successful Life

Summer is the easiest time of year to justify doing nothing. What you do each summer also defines the successful and the not so successful.

I find summer to be a great time to read and learn. 

For me a balanced life is about growing in five areas mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and financial intelligence. So, I give you 5 books one for each area. I have read and loved these books. Each one has given me opportunity to educate myself, reflect, choose to change and have great conversations with others.

Summer reading list:

  • Mental or business growth:
    • Why by Simon Sinek
  • Physical growth:
    • 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris
  • Emotional Growth:
    • Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman
  • Financial Growth:
    • Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
  • Spiritual growth: So many books here I wish I could send you my entire library. Here is one of my recent favorites
    • Future of God by Deepak Chopra

And a bonus short book:

  • The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price


This summer even if you feel your body, mind and spirit telling you to take a break.

 Slow down and pick up one of my favorite books as a way to keep learning, laughing and loving the life you are creating for yourself.
