I am the phoenix rising from the ashes. The only one that can do this, is me and it takes mental power to do this. Yes, one can have people helping you, encouraging you, offering you a hand up. But it is YOU who must accept that help, accept that encouragement and accept that hand up.
No one is going to do it for you, you must do it yourself. YOU must stand up out of the ashes and RISE.
One of the ways you can do this is by reading. In this fast-paced day of digital bits and bytes, reading a book seems so antiquated. But it is the best thing that you can do for yourself.
There is an old computer saying… Garbage In… Garbage Out. In the computer world it is known as GIGO.
What happens when you put good stuff in? Well you get good stuff out.
This is why reading a book will improve your life faster than just about anything else out there.
You want to see change in yourself? Read a book.
Have some area in your life that is lacking? Then find books that can help you with that area of your life and start reading.
This is what I have been doing (forcing myself) to start reading again. I don’t know what happened, but I used to read at least one book a week. I have not done that in a long time.
So, guess what? I am starting that back up again.
There is one book in particular that I have found to be one of the best investments I’ve ever made for myself. It is called “Be a Bad Ass at Making Money – By Jen Sincero.
In fact, you can go on Amazon right now you can get “You Are A Bad Ass” and You Are a Bad Ass at Making Money” at a great price for around $18 or so.

I love how her book has drastically changed / impacted my mindset around making money, my life and my business.
What has happened over the years is that I have developed a toxic mindset that was focused more on fear than winning. In reading a few of the books that I have been reading, I realize that I MUST change my mindset. I MUST change that little voice in my head from a loser / fearful voice to that of a conquering / winning voice.
AND… the best way to do that is by reading positive and motivational books that fill my brain with good instead of negative.
What I have forgotten is how powerful the brain can be.
Do you know that you can accomplish just about anything you put your mind to? This is a fact. The key is that you must want it bad enough and be willing to work your backside off.
So what is it that I want again?
1 – To Win… win for me, win for my wife (soon to be) and win for my family!
2 – Show the world that I can and will rise from the ashes and I will win!
3 – Ensure that I have a legacy to leave behind that will enrich the world even when I am gone.
So how will I do this?
By reading books that will help change my toxic mindset and turn it around to focus on winning people / money-attracting mindset.
It’s so possible and when you are in this “winning mindset” it feels amazing.
Right about now you are asking… “OK… what books are you reading right now?”
Thrive – Arinanna Huffington
You’re A Bad Ass & You Are A Bad Ass at Making Money – Jen Sincero

The Science of Getting Rich – Wallace D. Wattles

I have linked these in from my Amazon store so that if you want to change your mindset, you can do that and by buying them from me, I can earn a few pennies as well.
All these books have been instrumental in changing that voice inside my head from the negative into the positive.
Again, only I can cause myself to stand up and rise up out of the ashes so I need the mental power to do that and make those changes in my life that will count and help me achieve the goals that are the desires of my heart.
If you have some great books that you have read, please share them with me, I would like to check them out. As time progresses, I will continue to share other books that I am reading and making a difference in my life.
