Now that you’ve made your achievable goals for the year, you might be looking for inspiration. Often times we have good ideas that excites us to the core. You can picture the end result in your mind but unfortunately have no clue how to forge ahead and make things happen.

It’s the perfect time to go for inspiration, not desperation in order to achieve your goals. With that in mind, here are three awesome books to give you that extra push you might need, Mojo juice if you will!
Three Awesome and Useful Books to Inspire:
These are in no particular order. Each was selected to cater to a different mindset with all three combined to round out a full on regrouping and way of thinking going forward.
This book has been a bestseller for 25 years. It is quite inspirational. It motivates you to set your goals with a win/win mindset. There’s a reason why it has sold over ten million copies and continues to top the charts. Supposedly read by top business leaders. I skimmed it a very long time ago and remember being empowered. I am planning on reading it again in the near future for some more life lessons. The change in attitude has to come from within and this one helps you identify what personal behavior you need to modify or cater to in order to lead a more effective and better life. Human beings being creatures of habit, this forces you to concentrate on the good habits.
A very common book in the Early Retirement and Personal Finance forums, which is where l discovered it as well. The advice given might have been revolutionary when it was first published and now it’s almost a given, what with the internet and all. The most important takeaway is to live below your means and watch your money grow. The constant need to keep up with the Joneses will only drain your funds. I for one, used to love changing my car every couple of years and l always bought new. After reading this, I changed my mindset. I bought was a used BMW 540i that l not only purchased for almost $50,000 less thanks to depreciation, but one that l used for just under 9 years, then sold for a great price. The proceeds funded one whole year of living in Malta! I try not to dwell on mistakes of the past, but l wish I’d read the book sooner.
Pretty much everyone knows who this firecracker of a woman is. At any time of day all over the world, one of her shows is playing on a TV screen. Surely you’ve heard of “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Scandal” and her latest “How to Get Away With Murder” . Her strong female characters have become trademarks of her shows. That alone should inspire. In this book, she writes about being an introvert who finally decided to come out of her shell, thanks to a random statement from one of her sisters. The challenge was to say “Yes” to things and it transformed her life. I am trying for my own year of yes 🙂 as l tend to be introverted as well.
