5 Must-Read Favorites to Expand Your Successful Life

Spread the love

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.

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.
