5 must read books to reach your full potential in life

We all have skills, strengths, talents, and characteristics that are unique to us. A key component to reaching your full potential is knowing what these strengths are so you can find a way to use them in your life.

One small problem...many of us are completely blinded to these strengths, which can limit us from ever reaching our full potential in life.

If you’re reading this and thinking “yes I have no idea what my greatest strengths and gifts are!” then you should definitely check out my Clarify you Calling Course which guides you through the process of reconnecting to your true self so you can discover what your innate talents are and how you can use them to reach your greatest potential in life.

  1. The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth - John C Maxwell

John C Maxwell is probably one of my favorite authors for all things personal development. His philosophies are rooted in values and growth for greater good/impact. He is your go-to for all things leadership and lasting impact. This book is a great starting point if you are ready to take the reins on your own personal growth.


2. Black Hole Focus - Isaiah Hankel

“How Intelligent People Can Create a Powerful Purpose for Their Lives.” This book walks you through steps to take more intentional action in your life so you can live with more passion and meaning. I’ve pulled on this book for my yearly goal setting for the last 5 years now.


3. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Steven Covey

A classic. Aristotle said it best - “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Our life is ultimately the culmination of our habits. The little things we do each day will lead us down a certain path in life. This book gives you some of the most impactful habits for reaching your potential in life.


4. Free to Focus - Michael Hyatt

This book just launched and is pure gold. This book is beyond eye-opening. Have you ever looked at where the majority of your time is spent? Reaching your potential takes focus, but the majority of us waste time on areas that limit us from reaching our potential. In this book, Michael Hyatt helps you get more laser-focused on the activities you should be doing and simplifies the process for you.


5. Awaken The Giant Within- Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins is a leader in the personal development field. He has a way of communicating knowledge that feels real and attainable. This is a great book that calls out to your inner greatness. It helps you take charge of your physical, mental, emotional, and financial destiny in life.

I hope these books help you as much as they helped me!
