No, I am not a genius -- well... maybe a little genius.
Books (and other things) that have Changed My Life ...

The beliefs and philosophies that govern a person's life are developed over a lifetime, based on one's experiences and realizations.  Mark Twain -- or Hal Holbrook portraying Mark Twain -- said, a man who has the same views at 65 that he had at 25 just wasted 40 years.

These three books are the foundation of who I am today -- and most people say that's a good thing. 

The Three Books That Changed My Life

Illusions, The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah - Richard Bach
There is an old saying: "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."  This book single handedly altered my philosophy on life, forever.  It is wonderfully simple and mysteriously complex all at once, and will change your life too, if you can absorb it.

Unlimited Power-- Anthony Robbins
I quote Tony Robbins a lot.  Unlimited Power is a book about gaining power over yourself and your life.  Self Mastery is it's goal and it is an awesome, thought -provoking tool that challenges you to control your own life and gives you the tools to do it.  If you need an excuse to fail... do not read this book, because he takes your excuses away.  But if you're ready to make a change ...get this book. 

7 Habits of Highly Successful People - Stephen Covey
7 Habits of Highy Effective People is my third anchor, and puts the spit shine on the lessons of this trio.  Stephen Covey illustrates his points with crystal clarity.  One story in this book -- one statement --I credit with holding my last marriage together for the first 7 years.  One story.. one statement ... that was so profound for me... that it's stuck with me for over 20 years and is a guiding principal in my life. It's that kind of book.

The you go.  The three books I attribute with changing my life. Are you ready for a change?  Start there.

After those, there were others, more refinements, more clarifications.  I'll be listing other works I've felt were valuable.  Unless plainly stated otherwise, everything I recommend here, I have read, or listened to, and it is in my personal library. I don't recommend lightly.

Have an awesome day.
