Books That Have Changed My Life

Books That Have Changed My Life

I don’t read fiction anymore. I did in elementary, but when I found business, self-help, leadership and classic Christian books.. I was hooked. I so strongly believe in the importance of life-long learning and reading. When someone tells me – “I hate reading” – I tend to believe that they just haven’t found the right books yet and that they’ve probably been forced to read a lot of uninteresting ones. I hope this list of the books I’ve read and enjoyed can be a starting point for your own adventure into the brilliant minds of hundreds of authors who can take you closer to where you want to be in life. Here are some of my favorites…
