Top 10 Inspirational Books

Always carry two books with you. The one you are reading, and the one you are writing. 

While you may not read every book on this list, we hope that you choose at least one and take action on the top 3 takeaways that make an impression on you as soon as it happens. Since we live in abundant access to information these days, make sure you take action in the moment.

The way these books were selected are based on recommendations from my personal mentors who are holistically successful, leading happy and purposeful lives. After studying and implementing concepts from every single one, changes were happening in my perception and actual experience of life. Please note that “successful happy and purposeful” people also live life with ups and downs.
