I’ve been reading a lot of books to change your mindset lately. I’m in a pretty transitional phase of my life right now, and I’m looking to make big changes and take some big steps.

One of the reasons I love reading books to change your mindset is because it’s so easy to get into them. If you’re looking to make a change, finding the right book is perfect for jumping into that change. You know how sometimes you read a book and it doesn’t mean anything to you? But then you pick it up again and it’s life-changing? That’s what I’m talking about. You just need to find the right book at the right time. And if you’re looking to make a change, now is the right time for these books.Books to Change Your Mindset Click To Tweet
Books to Change Your Mindset
The Body is Not an Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor
I mentioned this one in my reading lately post, but it bears repeating. The best thing about this book is how it’s shaped the way I interact with advertising. I can’t look at a maekup or Weight Watchers’s ad right now without thinking to myself, “Hey, you don’t make any money when I love myself.” It’s been really good for me in that I no longer feel like I need things to solve problems that I don’t actually have.
Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey
I’m making my way through this one, and there are a lot of good points in there. I won’t say that it’s a plan I 100% subscribe to, just because I have goals in addition to retiring comfortably. I won’t spend a ton of time talking about money, but I will say this: If you feel trapped in a rat race lifestyle, this is a great book for reshaping your relationship to money and how you use it.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Mari Kondo
I know I’m super late to the game on this one, but I can’t recommend it enough. I hate how stuff really takes over my life, and how much stuff I have when it all tends to be stuff that I don’t even value, at least, as a life-long investment. If you’re looking for ways to reshape your life and your relationship to the stuff in it, or you want to start your journey into minimalism, this is the book for you.
Be Your Own #GOALS by Kristen Martin
I haven’t read this one, but I have listened to Kristen’s podcast. She’s a super happy person, and she’s great at putting things into that millennial perspective. I appreciate her positivity and the way she approaches challenges that creative entrepreneurs face. If you’re looking to create something or start a business, but you need a little motivation, she’s your girl.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson
Everyone keeps recommending this book to me, and in the next sentence, they say, “It’s basically Buddhism.” I’m sure that I’ll really enjoy this book when I pick it up, so it’s been on my radar for a while. If you’re interested in re-allotting the fucks you give, you need to read this post about the fuck bucket first. But then, you need to read this book.
The Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss
I hesitate to recommend anything by Tim Ferriss, just because 1.) everyone knows who he is and the books he’s written, and 2.) I feel there is a stigma surrounding him and his books, and that stigma doesn’t necessarily align with my brand. Be that as it may, Tim has some great information in this book, and it would behoove you to read it, especially if you’re in a creative business or you’re trying to build one.Which books changed your mind on something?

Oooh! I’ve been meaning to queue up The Body is Not an Apology…
One of my latest mind-setting favorites has been You Need a Budget by Jesse Mecham. Less financial advice, more align your money with life priorities AND HERE’S HOW. The whole notion of being intentional with dollars has been life-changing for me and my paycheck, plus has made lots of super fun money conversations much easier.
I AM GOING TO BUY THIS BOOK IMMEDIATELY!
