10. The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art 
of Turning Trials into Triumph

by Ryan Holiday

Winning is about overcoming obstacles. You have to be able to recognise them and make decision about what you will do when you encounter an obstacle. It is also about understanding what you can control and can’t. To my mind is encapsulates the Alcoholics Anonymous Prayer of gaining the strength and fortitude to be able to accept what you can’t change, the peace to know when to give up and the wisdom to know the difference between these two. There will always be pain or adversity. Success is about stoically persevering with resilience. It is also about letting go, which is a hard concept for people who are into blame and a sense of entitlement. It’s about turning every new obstacle into an opportunity to get better, stronger, tougher.  “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” It’s about applying this wisdom to become more successful at whatever

The Obstacle is the way By Ryan Holiday

you do. In this book, Ryan Holiday shows you how some of the most successful people in history have applied stoicism to overcome difficult or even impossible situations. Embracing the principles in this book ultimately mattered more than these leaders’ natural intelligence, talents, or luck. This is a guide to help you turn your problems into your biggest advantages.

11.  How to Get Sh*t Done

by Erin Falconer

When treading the success path, women are often overwhelmed. They often overschedule their lives unnecessarily. This clutter hides what is necessary and meaningful. This book is about helping women do less so that they can achieve more.  From the moment women are born, there seems to be a tendency to live in a state of constant guilt.  We learn that we’re not doing enough.  We learn that we’re not good enough.  That we need to change somehow in order to be accepted. Women are guilted, and mostly by self, that they need to be climbing the corporate ladder.  That they need to be busy. That they need to be doing it all and coping as well. This constant sense of comparison with others, especially men, leads women to feel like they’re not living their best lives. Erin Falconer shows women how to do less and achieve more.  She teaches women how to zero in on three areas of their lives where they need to excel.  It’s an entirely new approach –  letting go of what holds you back so that you can free your spirit.

“How to Get Sh*t Done will forever reframe productivity so that you can stop doing everything for everyone and start doing what matters to you.”

Less Can Lead to So Much More

BY looking at the bigger picture and getting rid of any excesses, things you really can do without. Helps you reclaim lightness and relieve stress. The clutter is an outcome of society in general.

15. White Hot Truth: Clarity for Keeping
It Real on Your Spiritual Path from
One Seeker to Another

by Danielle LaPorte

White Hot Truth lays it all bare for spiritual wisdom and growth. Sometimes the two notions conflict. When commencing a journey into personal development people reward many books. The more they read the more self-critical they can become because you, the subject, are so full of hurt and pain and sorrow and guilt that it is almost as though you need to let go of your entire life and start again. However, in this book, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth. She achieves this by having a good laugh with you, and maybe a good cry, at the ways you’ve been” trying to improve on your self-improvement.” This book gives an insight into some tales about how this self-help movement can get it terribly wrong. And. Mostly, terribly right. Danielle has been named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes.

White Hot Truth By Danielle Laporte

“And in her poetic and brazen way, she brings it home with the hottest truth of all: You are your own guru.”

16. Unconventional Medicine: Join the Revolution
 to Reinvent Healthcare, Reverse Chronic Disease,
and Create a Practice You Love

By Chris Kresser

Chris Kresser is a New York Times best-selling author of The Paleo Cure. Never before has diet and nutrition been so on point and in the media. Disease and illness are rampant. Supermarkets try to bend to different interest groups by offering gluten-free, milk-free and other options. Yet. This is just the tip of the epidemic. Chronic disease is shortening our lifespan, destroying our quality of life. Mental health issues are expanding world-wide, yet more and more drugs are available to combat this situation. But. Perhaps they are missing the point with artificial intermediation into illness. Today’s parents are symptomatic of prior eating habits. This generation is affecting the health of future generations. Conventional medicine focuses on managing symptoms.  This approach is no longer valid. This approach fails to address the underlying causes of disease. This means that health providers are not sufficiently educated in more appropriate solutions to an overall life plan, rather than a band-aid approach, after

the horse has bolted. We are now broken because the healthcare system is broken. What is the solution? Kresser’s aim is to present a plan that will help reverse this downward spiral towards continuing world ill-health. Kesser combines the notion of a genetically aligned diet and lifestyle with a collaborative practice model so that practitioners can educate their patients towards better health overall. Known for his in-depth research uncovering myths and misconceptions in modern medicine, Kesser provides science-based health solutions that have proven results.

“The epidemic of chronic illness can be stopped, if patients and practitioners can adapt.”Chris Kesser   https://www.chriskresser.com/

Personality Profiles That Reveal How to
Make Your Life Better
(and Other People’s Lives Better, Too)

by Gretchen Rubin

This book is about change. If you want to or need to change to achieve something then you need to be able to measure it. You need to ab=be able to understand it. The you can take the appropriate action. If you do not understand who you are at a core level you will definitely not understand the impact that your personality and style of operation is having on not only yourself, but also on others. You future. Your success or failure! Like the majority of personality profiling systems traits/styles/types fall into combination of four, eight, or sixteen. Why? Most of these are based on the ancient Chinese System of the IChing which looked at the seasons and the elements of: wind, fire, water and earth. More modern application of this ancient philosophy further refines what those elements might

mean. In this book they have been defined as: obliger, rebel, questioner or upholder.  She calls them tendencies. “Tendency shapes every aspect of our behaviour, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively.” This book is about insight. It is about research and examples. The overall objective is for you, the reader, to move towards a happier, healthier, more productive life.

“Gretchen Rubin realised that by asking the seemingly dry question ‘How do I respond to expectations?’ we gain life changing self-knowledge.”
