This month I want to recommend 5 books that I've read in the past year. These books have helped me a lot in my professional and personal life. They have inspired me to keep going when I feel I want to quit. Specially during and after a pandemic.
Here is the link to my Amazon Store where you can find all my favorite books.
"Find your artistic voice" by Lisa Congdon.
She is one of my favorite illustrators. Her book is a guide to working your creative magic.
I found this description on her website where you can buy the book.
"Bestselling author, artist, and illustrator Lisa Congdon brings her expertise to this guide to the process of artistic self-discovery. Featuring advice from Congdon herself and interviews with a roster of established artists, illustrators, and creatives, this one-of-a-kind book will show readers how to identify and nurture their own visual identity, navigate the influence of artists they admire, push through fea and insecurity, and appreciate the value of their personal journey".
"You are a badass" written by Jen Sincero. It is about how to stop doubting your greatness and start living the awesome life you want.
"Via chapters such as “Your Brain is Your Bitch,” “Fear is for Suckers” and “My Subconscious Made Me Do It,” the book takes you on a wild joy ride to your own transformation and helps you create the money, relationships, careers and general all around awesomeness you so desire.
By the end of You Are a Badass®, you will understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can’t change, how to change what you Don’t love, and how to kick some serious butt."
"The book of beautiful questions" by Warren Berger.
This book deals with the powerful questions that will help you decide, create, connect and lead.
"The humble question can be a powerful tool. By asking questions, we learn, analyze, understand—and can move forward in the face of uncertainty. When confronted with almost any demanding situation, in work or life, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions and a sensible course of action. But the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of a complex challenge, or that enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way."
"Everything is figureoutable" by Marie Forleo.
This is one of the best self- help books I have ever read. Forleo approaches matters in a realistic way and at the same time gives you the tools to get the best out of the situation.
"Hello fears" by Michelle Poller.
This book is very special for me, not only because Michelle is a very talented and inspiring Venezuelan woman, but because I know Michelle personally and her spirit and positive vibe is contagious.
"Hello, Fears is a growth mindset personal development book for those who are not only ready to achieve but brave enough to push out of their comfort zone.
In this inspiring and motivational new book, Michelle is challenging others to say hello! to their fears and find meaningful happiness outside the traditional definition of success.
With kick-butt attitude and a humorous *wink*, Michelle breaks down each set-back she battled on the road towards a joyful purpose.
Our fears reveal what we care about the most, so each and every challenge is an opportunity to grow, hustle, and be your most authentic self ― unapologetically."
This book helps you crush your confort zone and become who you are meant to be.
