2.The Art Of War by Sun Tzu
A book everyone should read! takes you to another way to look at life, work, and every thing in between. Written in a way that can be understand but takes a “higher mind” to really allow it to sink in. If you have an afternoon go through it and take it in, you’ll look at the world in a different light and maybe you might even realize that you know a lot of this already but be open minded and take in everything it says because The Art of War is something else! I highly recommend it, one of my favorites!
3.Turning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life’s Work by Steven Pressfield
The follow-up to his bestseller The War of Art, Turning Pro navigates the passage from the amateur life to a professional practice. “You don’t need to take a course or buy a product. All you have to do is change your mind.” –Steven Pressfield TURNING PRO IS FREE, BUT IT’S NOT EASY. When we turn pro, we give up a life that we may have become extremely comfortable with. We give up a self that we have come to identify with and to call our own. TURNING PRO IS FREE, BUT IT DEMANDS SACRIFICE. The passage from amateur to professional is often achieved via an interior odyssey whose trials are survived only at great cost, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. We pass through a membrane when we turn pro. It’s messy and it’s scary. We tread in blood when we turn pro. WHAT WE GET WHEN WE TURN PRO. What we get when we turn pro is we find our power. We find our will and our voice and we find our self-respect. We become who we always were but had, until then, been afraid to embrace and live out.
