Summer is here! What a great time to live your best life, travel, check off that bucket list and READ. Something about laying by the pool, on the beach, or in a hammock with a good book sounds so inviting doesn't it?!
I love self-development books! Investing in yourself is a key factor in your growth. When you grow personally, other areas of your life will also grow such as your career or business, relationships, and all aspects of your life. Reading books has been one of the ways that has fast-tracked my growth.
Our Team here at Fierce Forward loves empowering women to believe in themselves and create the life of their dreams, so it's only natural that we all read books that help us do just that! These are our top picks for the books we've read that helped us expand both personally and professionally. We hope you love them as much as we do.
1. The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks
In this amazing book, New York Times bestselling author Gay Hendricks demonstrates how to move beyond your internal limits, let go of outdated fears and learn an entirely new set of powerful skills and habits to liberate your true greatness. The Big Leap is one of my absolute favorites that is so easy to read and a great reminder to stop doubting yourself and your greatness.
You'll learn what upper limits you have that are holding you back and how to break them down to start living a better life. Take the leap and give it a read! I promise you'll thank me. Mark and I read it every other month it has impacted us that much.
2. High-Performance Habits by Brendan Berchard
Discover the six habits that will make you extra! In his book High-Performance Habits, Brendon Burchard reveals the most effective habits for reaching long-term success. Based on one of the largest surveys ever conducted on high performers, it turns out that just six habits will help you the most in succeeding. There's also a planner and journal to go along with the book you can use to help adopt the six habits!
Every night my husband and I read 10 pages of a self-growth book. Aside from being a great way to ease us into being tired, it really is such a great way to take information in and then have your subconscious work on while you're sleeping. It's been a game changer and this book is the one Mark is finishing. He would stop me in the middle of our reads to share what he was learning.
3. You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero
In this awesome how-to guide, Jen Sincero gives you 27 chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word. Which I find refreshing and very real. This book will help you identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want. Want to create the life you love now and become a Badass along the way? This is for you!
I loved this book because it made me laugh while also giving me the tough love I needed to make change in my life! Some of my key takeaways were that I should be living my life for me and no one else; my negative thoughts are holding me back from reaching my goals; never give up no matter what life throws at me. Bottom line, I started believing I was a real Badass after reading this book and started taking action!
