CLEARLY BOOKS ARE THE BEST WAY TO ASSIMILATE OUTCOMES, whether your goals are being financial independent, being physically and mentally healthy or achieving Authentic happiness which is the integration of health, wealth, love and happiness .

The good news is that we no longer have to learn by trial and error anymore, and all these magical words can be achieved through reading books, or shall I say consulting mentors because books are mentors whether they are dead or alive.

Here’s my favorite list consisted of 7 special books (mentors) that can really change your life and make you a better human . I am very happy to share this list 
with you and I’m looking forward to hear about your list of favorite books.

1. Let your life speak: listening for the voice of vocation by PARKER PALMER
In this uplifting book, Palmer exposes his readers to a journey based on listening to their inner voice, a voice that knows all the answers. What was beautiful about this book is its language which was filled with softhearted humor, benevolence and wisdom. I felt like Palmer was a close friend of mine who was guiding and teaching me using his own experience and the experiences of folks that have changed the world. The book is an accumulation of visions and insights learned from the valleys and peaks, lows and highs, darks and lights …this is a manual for those people seeking to win themselves back and embark on a journey full of vocations.  More info
