You may have noticed a shift in my perspective lately, or at least in my awareness. While there are multiple causes of it, a massive one is actually the books I've been reading. One of my favorite podcast hosts, who is also a wildly successful businessman and incredible thinker, put out a list of books that have had the greatest impact on his life and his career. And because of my massive admiration for this person, and my own determination to progress through life, I dedicated myself to read (or listen to) all 30 books on his list. I'm currently on book #9, and while not every book, so far, has had a PROFOUND effect on my life, every single book has had SOME effect on my life. I've never before considered how much of a gift it is to be able to read the thoughts and intimacies of some of the most brilliant and interesting minds in the world. I'm so excited to be learning from these incredible authors, and I'm equally excited to share my learnings with you. My desire is to always be improving and growing as a person, and I hope to inspire others to improve and grow alongside me.
"True self-confidence is “the courage to be open—to welcome change and new ideas regardless of their source.” Real self-confidence is not reflected in a title, an expensive suit, a fancy car, or a series of acquisitions. It is reflected in your mindset: your readiness to grow."
-Carol Dweck (Author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success; book #1 on the list)
