Books I recommend

Here are some books from my personal library that I think you’ll enjoy.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

This book has really been life changing to me; it was my first step on the journey to living a life of acceptance. It is also my inspiration in writing my own book, “Thank You! With Deepest Gratitude,” where I offer my reflections on similar universal themes.

It Worked for Me by Colin Powell

As a former member of the armed forces, I had great admiration and respect for General Colin Powell. This book for me offers advice and invaluable nuggets for succeeding in the workplace. It was very interesting hearing his stories and his leadership style would be an asset to anyone.

The Ride of a Lifetime by Robert Iger

I enjoyed reading this book and it reminded me of hard work and persistence. It reminded me that one has to start somewhere, put in the work, and you never know what is around the corner.

The Choice by Dr. Edith Eva Eger

For me this was a great read, about the strength of the human spirit and how we can overcome just about anything. It also reminded me that no matter how difficult things get in my life there is always someone who has a harder experience, so be kind to everyone I meet.

Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

This book was gifted to me, when I first had an interest in learning about yoga. I read this book many years ago and it still remains front and center in my collection. The evolution of Paramahansa Yogananda and the teachings are still timely to me.

You Are Here by Thick Nhat Hanh

This is a book that I need to read and reread from time to time, for it reminds me to be present, and at the same time to be able to let go of things. It also reminded me that I can be the beacon of light that I aim to be in life by aiming to live a life of service to others.

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown

For me, this was a book that forced me to be introspective, and as an introvert, I felt that I was already a very introspective person, so it was eye opening. This idea of allowing myself to be vulnerable is still something I am working on. This book is a wealth of information for one willing to look within for a deep inventory.
