#1 Subconscious Power by Kimberly Friedmutter

Subconscious Power by Kimberly Friedmutter
Our perception of fear, love, career and relationships shapes our ability to process what is around us, as it relates to ourselves and who we are. Emotions are housed in the subconscious. The ability to harness and understand how we feel is our liberation, residing in the subconscious.

Subconscious Power not only teaches readers about their own capacity for excellence but shows readers easy-to-do exercises (each 3 minutes or less)to alleviate stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, phobias, addictions and more. These techniques have been used by Hollywood’s top stars, titans of industry and readers worldwide to overcome anxiety before it ever begins.

100% natural, organic and sustainable. Experience why hypnotic trance has become the new meditation for those looking to enhance their performance and to excel, using their subconscious mind. See what celebrities like Mike Tyson, Jennifer Hudson and Martha Stewart have to say regarding Subconscious Power..

#2 The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy
I love this book. Waxing philosophical aside, Mackesy’s efforts in getting his simple message across is told through illustrations that even children can relate to: fostering love and kindness at all times.

Simply put, the animals and the little boy depict that even the heaviest of burdens we tend to question doesn’t necessarily translate as the “end”. It’s more of choosing to slip into a positive mindset many of us fail to do so when confronted by fear, hurt, confusion.

When love is assured to us, the weight we feel on our hearts decreases to nothingness, and we live life again happily.

Mackesy sure pulled my heartstrings. Made me feel like a boy again, and made me appreciate the many things in life I tend to miss.

#3 The Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle

The Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle
When it comes to classic philosophical works for beginners, The Nicomachean Ethics is one of my favorites. Aristotle is one of the most brilliant men in history, with works on everything from poetry to politics, and his writing is the foundation of basically every Western philosopher who came after him, making this an excellent place to start building your understanding of philosophy. In addition, The Nicomachean Ethics addresses one of philosophy’s greatest questions – how do you live a good and moral life?

Beyond that, The Nicomachean Ethics is relatively simple to read. While other philosophers often used lyrical, flowery language or tough, complicated wording that make interpreting their meaning a chore, Aristotle’s writing is typically clear and easy to understand. He also tends towards a simple format of asking a question and then providing the answer, which makes it easy to follow his train of thought.
