Mind your Mind!!!
Oh my goodness! I have taken a VERY deep dive into growth opportunities with my personal development book list. What a gift!
This is a quickie "repository" post to share and keep a record of what I've been reading/listening to (love my Audible account) the last year. Truly life-changing stuff... My entire worldview has taken a 180!
Don't worry: I'm still a crazy conspiracy theorist. I still loathe the FDA and think it should be ended immediately, still think Big Pharma wants us sick so they'll have lifelong customers (and will go to any lengths to make sure that happens), still think Monsanto is Evil (it is).
But those negative thoughts don't run my day or my life anymore.
They used to!!! Now they are simply FAQs about this world. I'll do what I can to right the wrongs, but I can't be hatin' all the time, right? What kind of life is that? One that will surely make me sick!
Not only would that mean they win, but my life would not be joyous and healthy and happy. I'd miss all the YUMMINESS! In love with yumminess lately.
So here's my booklist -- I won't offer long descriptions because those are all on Amazon along with great reviews! I spend lots of time in the car so my "reading" is actually listening. Love my Audible.
THIS is my "go to" for quick inspiration.

Being successful in business is the very same process as being successful in life. Ultimately, you have to get out of your own way. You MUST. My best thinking got me where I am today. If that's good enough, stick with it. If it's not and you want more, you must change your thinking.
