In an effort to continue providing hints and tips on the personal development we all need to achieve our ultimate potential, I wanted to share some books that have been meaningful to me.
"Tuesdays with Morrie"
by Mitch Albom
"Attitude is Everything; 10 Life-changing Steps to Turning Attitude into Action"
by Keith Harrell
"How Full is Your Bucket?"
by Tom Rath and Dr. Donald O. Clifton
Each of these texts impacted me in different ways. "Tuesdays with Morrie" hits home because I spent a number of years as a hospice nurse, and listening to the stories and wisdom of my patients as they were getting ready to depart this world. Get your tissue out for this beautiful read.
"Attitude is Everything". How true that is, and sometimes it's really challenging to maintain that positive attitude that can be the catalyst for good things in your life. Nicely laid out ideas on how to be able to control our thoughts which impact our destiny. I hope you enjoy.
Finally, "How Full is Your Bucket" ties in well with the previous book. Life is challenging for all of us, and I believe it's vital to be empathetic and sympathetic to all. Sometimes these interactions can be draining. Therefore, how can we be the source of a positive filling experience for others rather than draining their bucket?
I know, it's a lot to take in, but very worthwhile if you make the time. These books were a benefit to me, and I hope the same for you. Take care, and have an amazing day!
