Millionaire Success Habits: The Gateway to Wealth & Prosperity by Dean Graziosi

This is a brilliant online exercise to focus on your why.

7 Levels Deep. Dean Graziosi teaches that if you lose motivation it’s usually because you don’t know your why? Take the time to ask yourself 7 times to find answers at a deeper level. You will have more clarity and focus because when you are clear on your why you are less likely to give up. I am so passionate about helping others and if I can help you reach your goals I will succeed in my why.

The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins

Mel Robbins is another amazing woman her TED talk which she mentioned the 5 second rule is inspiring. This trick is so simple count back from 5 think of a positive thought then move within 5 seconds. This can trick the mind to think another thought. This is good for anxiety, getting to sleep or to stop procrastinating. This was the first trick I learned where you knew you were in control of your mind. Give it a try or pass it on to someone you think it might help.

Awaken The Giant Within by Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins is the ultimate life coach, his books are a long read but they give so much value. This book taught me about how to respect each others values and use that to focus on what’s important to you and that it’s ok if someone else has different values to you. Reading this book helped me understand myself and others and a whole lot more. It is one of my dream to attend one of his life changing seminars they are held in huge arenas. Theses seminars go on for a few days and have experiences like fire walking. Tony Robbins mission is to stop any suffering in the mind of every human being he finds. He has an interesting podcast series on his website.

Tony Robbins has a documentary on Netflix ‘I am not your Guru’ which is a unique glimpse into his world famous seminars.

Relatable, honest and very informative on mental health and tackles the stigma of asking for help.

OPEN: Why asking for help can save your life


One Minute Salesperson by Spencer Johnson

This was the very first motivation self help guide I was ever given. It made my working life better and easier and in lots of ways and holds the secret to many of my success. The main thing’s I got from it was that sales is not bad, you are helping people and the key is to find what they need! Simple really you have to care enough to ask the right open question’s, find out every client’s individual needs, worries concerns and then help them by recommending things that will help. When you truly care a sale is a natural outcome.
