As the ETP Charlotte Networking Leader, I would like to be able to say that I have in some way passed on a little information that will be beneficial to everyone.
We will start our meet ups in September, 2011.
I would like to suggest several motivational books that's will be beneficial in our everyday life.
All the books that I have suggested are available on Amazon.com
We will still use our very own training manual "WIN THE RACE for 21st CENTURY JOBS, by Rod Colon. This is our reference guide to the reason that we are here.
If you would like to receive a copy of WIN THE RACE for 21st CENTURY JOBS, by Rod Colon please click on the link eptnetwork.memberlodge.org
If you pick up a great idea, use it right away even if you're not done with the book. Only through action, no, consistent action will you have a chance of creating the life that you have always dreamed of. Any of these motivational books can have the power to change your life or at least motivate and inspire you to take action. You can also get them as gifts.
"When you give someone a book, you don't give him just paper, ink, and glue. You give him the possibility of a whole new life." - Christopher Morley
1. Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins
Tony Robbins is one of the best motivational speakers out there. His book is a bit technical since he talks a lot about NLP but you will get a lot of great, specific instructions on how to change how you feel which means you will have control over your motivational level.
2. Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins
This book is similar to his other book but it does have a nice goal program to help you achieve your goals. You'll also learn a bunch of cool techniques that can be used right away.
I also recommend the shorter audio version. His final message is awesome!
3. The Millionaire Mind by Thomas Stanley
Since being financially independent is something that many people want, this book will open your mind up to what it really takes to be a millionaire. You'll be surprised to find out that the general public's image of a millionaire is way off.
4. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
Much of your chances of accumulating wealth as well as being successful is mental. In this book, you will find out how millionaires think. When you think differently, you will take different actions. When you take different actions, you will get different results and if the results that you've been getting in your life isn't something you are particular proud of, then a change is in order.
5. Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen
I first heard about Joel Osteen from one of his televised speeches. Although he's a pastor, he speaks like a motivational speaker. His words about life and success are pretty inspiring. This book talks about expanding your vision, increasing your confidence, and finding strength through adversity among other things.
6. The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz, Ph.D.
If thoughts become things, then it's to your advantage that you think big thoughts. If you think big, you will achieve big dreams. How you think of yourself, your goals, and your life in general will have a great impact on the results that you actual experience in life. This book will help you have more belief in yourself in order to think big and have the confidence to see those thoughts through.
7. Quantum Success by Sandra Taylor
Part of this books in part talks about the law of attraction but it also talks a lot about some of the other laws. The law of attraction, although an interesting concept, isn't enough for you to achieve what you want in life. This book goes beyond just visualizing success.
8. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
This is a classic book on how to get more things done. Effective or successful people get to where they are due to the habits they have developed. Obviously, there are good habits and there are bad habits. This book talks about the 7 habits that many successful people seem to have in common.
For teenagers, I highly recommend The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey, Stephen's son.
8. As a Man Thinketh by James Allen
This book is about thoughts. It aligns with the whole law of attraction subject and actually helped inspired that whole movement. It's not exactly an easy read but still a great book to pick up.
9. Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
This book has probably helped more people become successful than any other self help book out there. This book also aligns with the law of attraction subject although it might not be too obvious. The ideas in this book can help you achieve your goals.
10. The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale
This is another classic self help book. When you think positive thoughts, you will tend to have positive outcomes. From achieving your goals to even improving your health, having the right thoughts is crucial.
11. How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
This is one of the best selling motivational books of all-time. Actually, this probably falls into the personal development field. This book is all about relating to people. If you're in sales, this is a must read book.
12. The Magic of Believing by Claude M. Bristol
Believing in yourself is one of the most crucial things you need if you hope to be successful in life. Many people have great ideas and even have the plan to get them there but because of their lack of belief in themselves, they often either never even start or make progress and sabotage themselves. This book will help increase your level of belief and confidence.
13. Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy
This book is about achieving your goals as well as time management. Brian Tracy has a bunch of other books but this one is one of his best in my opinion.
14. The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino
This book is great for sales people. It's written in a story format in ancient times which makes it a delight to read. At the same time though, you will learn the secrets of success through scrolls which you will discover in this book.
15. Year to Success by Bo Bennet
This is one of those 365 chapter books where each day, you will have a short article to read covering all types of topics from motivation, time management, success, money, and a bunch of other topics. You will also get to read snippets of biographies of success people. It's a pretty huge book but it's full of great information. It's one of those books where you can just randomly flip to a page and start reading and get inspired.
16. Self-Discipline in 10 Days by Theodore Bryant
This is a book talks about self-discipline. Much of success in life deals with your ability to get yourself to do what you know should be done. It offers some great tips to help you take action long enough so that those actions become habits. Possible life changer.
