Train your Brain

The most under-developed muscle is the Brain. It’s a muscle I often ignore, when it comes to reading…I’m not the best reader but I know it will help me be a better person, leader, wife, sister, daughter…person! I dont believe we have a finish line, a personal growth education graduation or a …when it comes to our education or personal improvement. Im not saying Im not good or good enough, but I am saying is I can be better! I believe the quote is if “you’re not growing, you’re dieing!”

Im not the best student, not because I can’t retain information or pay attention, bc I can! In fact, I have a great memory, I have an amazing ability to recite things exactly…if I either LOVE what I’m learning or the person teaching, has captured my attention. I’m very practical, so personal growth education, is relevent. I want to be the best version of me!

The problem then becomes, where to start…So many books, So little time. Ive recently found Audible.com which is an amazing way to get your personal development, is to listen to it! Of course, you can get some of the books for cheaper on amazon or kindle…but will you actually READ them? Im serious, I have a million books on my shelves but I have a tough time turning the pages or finding the time to sit and stay focused. However listening to it, really works for me… (get your 2 free books, plus discounts on other purchases, use the link above)

Ive compiled a list…its a long list, not in any particular order. These are for personal mental, business and spiritual growth. (Ill make a list of funny silly somewhat mindless books…I think I learn from these too. You can learn anything from anybody, just pay attention)
