In preparation for the New Year, I have thought long and hard about what our next reading should be. I wanted to ensure that the first selection of 2015 would be a book that would help you be the best you that only you could be.
To make sure I selected correctly, I did a lot of homework. Some of that homework included the following:
1. Sought guidance from Brian Tracy regarding the 3 books that changed his life http://youtu.be/py_GtDf2uJU
2. Reviewed an interesting article and a few books from the leaders profiled in Success Magazine regarding the top Personal Development Leaders of 2014 http://www.success.com/mobilenodeview/22756
3. Read not only the Introduction but the first chapters of my contenders
4. Listened to suggestions from book reviews and interviews conducted on the Entreleadership podcast
And throughout the research I conducted, it took a TV commercial and a website to bring me to my final decision. I am so excited to bring this offering to you as I believe it is written in a manner that exemplifies where each of us living in 2014 are. We are either pursuing or want to pursue a dream throughout the remainder of 2014 into 2015. I think this book has so far provided a motivating factor to put me on a path to a better me and thus could do the same for you.
Now I am not one to jump on the bandwagon of the book of the moment nor do I see the purpose in paying someone to teach me things I know I should do but haven’t done. There are sone areas that would drive me crazy if I had to listen to a seminar covering it. And in the four years that I have owned my Kindle Fire, I have never paid more than $7.99 for a book. But I found myself paying more for this one.
While I know it is brutally unfair, I am going to provide the name of this book recommendation after I have had more time to interact with the associated website. I want to make sure that the site matches the chapters I have read thus far.
So until next time, I want to say thank you. Thank you for allowing me to share my love of reading and my desire for growth with you.
Remember, we are Motivating and Inspiring ourselves to not just Dream but also to Achieve.
I would love to hear from you, do you have a book suggestion for the Recommendation of the Month? Leave a comment and let me know.
Til next time,
