The 5 Books on my Nightstand
1. "Girl Wash Your Face" by Rachel Hollis
I checked out her podcast while I was waiting for the book and honestly I found it a bit boring (sorry). There is a lot of hype around the book right now (I am currently on Chapter 1). It's a motivational book in which Rachel, the author exposes 20 different lies that we tell ourselves.
I believe you could be unfu*ked after reading this book! The information in this book is very simple and easy to understand. This book is about 7 assertive affirmations that you can begin living by to change your world. It's a straight forward no BS way to take charge of your life!
3. "High Performance Habits" By Brendon Burchard
This is the latest book by Brendon Burchard. He highlights 3 personal and 3 social habits for achieving long-term success. This book reminds us to focus on the positive energy that we put out to others.
Witty, insightful, philosophical writer. Highly recommended for someone who is stuck in the "victim mindset". I found the reviews were mixed on this one but there is valuable content in chapters 1, 2 and 9.
5. "The Gifts of Imperfection"
I have this one as an e-book on my iPad. If you haven't heard of Brene Brown you might be living under a rock. This book challenges the messages that we receive from the media and society about how we need to look perfect and lead perfect lives in order to be happy.
