Seth Godin writes small smart books that will change your life. My two current favorites are:
Tribes: We Need You To Lead Us
This book shows us in a very entertaining and insightful way how leadership begins in unexpected and new ways. We don’t need permission to start something.
The Dip: The Little Book That Teaches You When To Quit (And When To Stick)
A dip is a normal part of success? Who knew??? What a revelation!
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra
A modern classic! The best way I know to learn about universal laws. Once you begin to understand, honor, and practice these laws, magic truly begins to happen!
Gift from The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I read this during a very delicate time in my life. The quote, “Sometimes you must loose your life in order to find it,” gave me a clarity and validation that changed everything for the better in an instant. Suddenly, I grasped the falling apart in order to come together process I was undergoing. Like a nautilus, I was outgrowing my old chamber.
The Wisdom of Florence Scovel Shinn
Long before there was The Secret, there was of Florence Scovel Shinn. Her book, The Game of Life and How to Play It (written in the 1920s!) was a gift from my friend Rafi Nasser in 1994. It literally changed my life for the better overnight. My life began to flow more easily and situations and relationships that I wanted to create began to manifest. To this day I still say, “Going with the Flo,” as a reminder to apply the simple and wise principles imparted by Mrs Florence Scovel Shinn.
The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell
In the late 1980s an enlightened journalist interviewed an enlightened college professor from Sarah Lawrence College for PBS and mythic history was born. I loved the show and the book. I still carry lessons from it to this day. “Follow your bliss,” said Mr. Campbell. More than just sage advice, this is a cosmic truth about the workings of the universe.
