These are just a FEW of the books that should either by in your Amazon cart right now or on your nightstand, ready to be opened up and devoured.

Reading is my biggest passion in the world. I used to wonder if the world was ending and I had to pack 1 bag of necessities, how on earth would I manage to fit my entire library into 1 bag? I’d need one of those Mary Poppins bags that seemed to fit absolutely everything you could ever need.

Reading brings me infinite peace, joy, and contentment. I feel relaxed when I read. Which is a rarity for me, I’m a pretty tense person.

It also helps me not think about anything but the words on the page, I suppose you could say writing is my form of meditation.

I think everybody should have something that they’re this passionate about.

I have a ton of books I would love to share with you all, but for now, let’s keep the list short and sweet.

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

This book is pure magic.

Have you ever read something that speaks directly to your soul?

Do you dream about writing a fabulous novel?

Do you hope to start an incredible business?

This is your golden ticket to success and beating, essentially satan. You know, the little voice inside of your head telling you that you can’t do something? You’re going to learn how to shut that voice up and swim with the current.

This novel is extremely powerful, it teaches you how to identify, defeat, and unlock the barriers to your creativity.

Anybody could get something out of this book. Though it was written for writers, it has been embraced by business entrepreneurs, actors, dancers, painters, photographers, and filmmakers.

“Resistance’s goal is not to wound or disable. Resistance aims to kill. Its target is the epicenter of our being: our genius, our soul, the unique and priceless gift we were put on earth to give and that no one else has but us.” — Steven Pressfield

Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis

This book is fabulous.

This novel is a wake-up call. This is for the women who can change the world but are fearful of being judged and ridiculed.

The stories Rachel Hollis shares are honest, brutal, and relatable. She shares how she overcame her struggles and became the founder of a multimillion-dollar company, along with that she talks about how to stop talking yourself out of your dreams, the behaviors you need to adopt, and the skills you need to acquire for self-improvement and exponential growth.

“I believe we can change the world. But first, we’ve got to stop living in fear of being judged for who we are.” — Rachel Hollis

Million Dollar Habits by Stellan Moreira

Our habits define us. They are what shape our lives. You are essentially one habit away from living your best life.

In this book, you start asking yourself the question “What if,” in a positive manner.

What if you could transform your life for the better?

What if you could achieve every single goal you have or will set out for yourself?

What if you could create ideas that could revolutionalize the world?

What if you could become financially free?

What if you could become the best version of yourself?

This novel contains 27 powerful habits to wire your mind for success, become truly happy, and achieve financial freedom.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” — Aristotle

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero

This book changed my life.

This is the book I constantly turned to throughout my entire move from Washington to LA.

This is the book I turned to when I felt doubt.

This is the book I turned to when I was struggling with my writing, with starting my own business, with everything.

In this book, you will understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can’t change, how to change what you don’t love, and how to start living the kind of life you used to be jealous of.

“Wanting can be done sitting on the couch with a bong in your hand and a travel magazine in your lap. Deciding means jumping in all the way, doing whatever it takes, and going after your dreams with the tenacity of a dateless cheerleader a week before prom night.” — Jen Sincero
