“Each one of us is like that butterfly the Butterfly Effect. And each tiny move toward a more positive mindset can send ripples of positivity through our organizations, our families, and our communities.”
– Shawn Achor

Here are a few of the books that’ve inspired my life lately:

Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead – Tara Mohr
“Playing big doesn’t come from working more, pushing harder, or finding confidence. It comes from listening to the most powerful and secure part of you, not the voice of self-doubt.”

The Happiness Advantage: How a Positive Brain Fuels Success in Work and Life – Shawn Achor
“Meditate. Neuroscientists have found that monks who spend years meditating actually grow their left prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain most responsible for feeling happy. But don’t worry, you don’t have to spend years in sequestered, celibate silence to experience a boost. Take just five minutes each day to watch your breath go in and out.”

The Power of Receiving: A Revolutionary Approach to Giving Yourself the Life You Want and Deserve – Amanda Owen
“When you ask for what you need and receive what people and the world have to give, you open up pathways you couldn’t see before, stimulate your imagination in ways that could not happen before, and have energy that was not previously available to you.”

The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level – Gay Hendricks
“Each of us has an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, and creativity we allow ourselves to enjoy…Letting yourself savor natural good feelings is a direct way to transcend your Upper Limit Problem. By extending your ability to feel positive feelings, you expand your tolerance for things going well in your life.”

Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead – Brené Brown
“Even to me the issue of “stay small, sweet, quiet, and modest” sounds like an outdated problem, but the truth is that women still run into those demands whenever we find and use our voices.”
