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.
Mental or business growth:
Why by Simon Sinek
4 Hour Work Week, Tim Ferris
So many books here I wish I could send you my entire library. Here is one of my recent favorites
Future of God, Deepak Chopra
Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman
Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
And a bonus short book:
The Abundance Book, 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.
