The books that changed my life, part 2.

I have been re-editing my book Via.  A publishing friend of mine wants to turn it into a physical book.

During the re-edit phase, my wife has encouraged me to add a section on books.  What are the books that have altered the direction of my life?

The original post is here:  http://dwanethomas.wpengine.com/my-list-of-books/.

This weekend, I thought of several more books.  The list continues to grow.

The War of Art, by Stephen Pressfield.  The title sums it up.  If you are a creator, an artist, or a writer, this book will remind you to get out of your own way.  I read Pressfield’s book while writing Visual Latin.   I need the motivation to push through.  Pressfield provides motivation.

The Millionaire Messenger: Make a Difference and a Fortune Sharing Your Advice, by Brendon Burchard.  Like The Pledge, by Michael Masterson, this is a book I have listened to many times.  Brendon extremely encouraging.  This alone makes the book worth your time.  But, Brendon is also extremely practical.  He teaches you exactly how to get your message out to the world.  His product breakdown was a breakthrough for me.  I can get overwhelmed before I ever begin a major project.  I tend to look at the entire picture.  Sometimes, this habit hamstrings me.  Stuck, I can’t move forward.  Brendon breaks the process down into sizeable, manageable parts.  He then teaches you how to tackle each part.  His book was also most helpful in teaching me how to monetize each part.
