Is Success What You Really Want? 11 Top Reads to Keep You Motivated in 2013


With the New Year around the corner, I start thinking, “How will I continue to motivate myself to take on the tasks ahead?” The next statement is always, “What are the tasks?”

My friend, The Growth Coach, John Stahl, told me not to let work get in the way. That’s an interesting thought. Is there work that really doesn’t make a difference?

I find that having a yearly plan helps me stay focused and show results. If you don’t do some soul searching, life will just drag you along, and you’ll become part of someone else’s success plan.

With the New Year around the corner, “We can all use a little prodding” to get us to success and to get more out of life, and who doesn’t want more out of life? Here’s my list of what I call “the read and re-read.” (To see my reasons why, check out the full article here.)
