The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
By Eckhart Tolle
To make the journey into the Power of Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the beginning of the first chapter you move to a significantly higher altitude where one breathes a lighter air, the air of the spiritual. Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle offers simple language and a question and answer format to guide us. The words themselves are the signposts.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad
By Robert Kiyosaki
Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his “poor dad” (whose weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his “rich dad” (that “the poor and the middle class work for money,” but “the rich have money work for them”). Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47. Based on the principle that income-generating assets always provide healthier bottom-line results than even the best of traditional jobs, it explains how those assets might be acquired so that the jobs can eventually be shed.
Leadership & Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box
By The Arbinger Institute
This book shows how most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little known problem called “self deception.” Through an entertaining and highly instructive story, Leadership and Self-Deception shows what self deception is, how people get trapped in it, how it undermines personal achievement and organizational performance, and – most importantly – the surprising way to solve it.
The Gift of Taking:
Honor Yourself First, All Else Will Follow
By Dr. Jill Kahn
You don’t have to give to the point of depletion anymore. Take first, keeping yourself whole and replenished, and then share from abundance, which, in turn, benefits others.
Work Less, Make More
By Jennifer White
Stop working and start living. These bold ideas will push you beyond simplifying, beyond time management, beyond the endless quest for money toward a more fulfilling, rewarding life. Work Less, Make More is about success across the board. It’s a work style, a living style, a values style and a priorities style. It’s about redesigning your life so you can feel satisfied. Fulfilled. Passionate about living again.
Stand Up for Your Life
By Cheryl Richardson
A personal coach and the best-selling author of Take Time for Your Life, Richardson promises readers “self-honoring strategies to transform your fear and doubt into self-trust and power.” Drawing on self-quizzes, examples from her coaching clients, and her own experiences, she explores key issues for developing this inner authority. The book focuses on creating boundaries, developing “courage muscles,” resolving conflict phobia, clarifying purpose, honing self-discipline, stating intentions, and graceful truth-telling.
In this life changing book by my former coach, Rich doesn’t just lead us down the path to success, he shows that it can be easier and yes, more fun. By applying lessons he has learned from extreme sports in his seven-part program, he shows us that learning to take risks is as important as doing your homework. He explains how you can create your own luck, develop the courage for change, use partnerships and alliances to expand possibilities, make fear your friend, and get and stay in the zone.
This book is an invitation to anyone who desires to accomplish something so extraordinary that it currently seems impossible. Executive Reinvention is at the heart of the book and is the product of the author’s experience that “you cannot successfully re-invent an organization without first reinventing the leaders.” This book is not just for executives though. It is for anyone who has an extraordinary dream that is so big it is almost impossible to believe you can make it happen. You can! Read on.
