BGG, you know I love reading PERIOD! Isn't Lisa Nichols one of the folks from The Secret? If so, I love her! BTW, I'm all about self improvement so bring it on!

Kwana said...

I've seen her on Oprah (I think) and love her. I enjoy a self help book. Am always in need of inspiration. One of my favorites has been Simple Abundance. This looks great. These times really have me down.

This book has a great message. I've never read anything by Lisa Nichols but I love inspirational books in general.

Iyanla Vanzant's books are great for inspirational purposes. I read them years ago, and find that they are great to look through every now and then when I need a bit of uplifting.

Right now, I'm reading Zero Debt, by Lynnette Khalfani-Cox. This year, I'm focusing on getting my money right!

dejoi said...

@ Kwana, Simple Abundance sounds like something I need to read!

This book would actually be for someone else. My wedding planner, who ended up becoming a really close family friend of ours over the years, lost both her parents within the past 4 months. She's an aspiring CEO of event coordinating CO., and could really use some inspiration at this time.

Despite today's scary economy and it's uncertainties, a good basic plan and good friends will certainly help guide your way even thru troubling times. I find a plan will ground my fears and keep me focused step by step.

So yes this book would definitely be a keeper (and a friend:)!

P.S. Great Blog;)

My favorite book is Get Yours by Amy Dubois Barnett. It is so inspiring. Lisa Nichols will be at my local Borders store this month. I think I'll check out the reading.

MY favorite inspirational book is by Iyanla Vanzant - One Day My Soul Just Opened Up.
And I enjoy reading self-help/inspirational books, the last I read is Girl Get Your Money Straight.

@Everyone - Another good uplifting book is, 100 Simple Secrets to Happy People by David Niven. I just read it last week and found it to be truly inspiring.

Rebee said...

There are two that I am currently loving: The One Decision, by Judith Wright and Style Statement, by Carrie & Danielle. They both center on making an overarching mission/vision/statement for your life that influences every decision you make. The premise is that the decision or statement helps you remain true to your purpose by making more conscientious choices accordingly.
