Like many people I find much of my inspiration from books, magazines and other forms of media.  Below is a selection that will help get you started.
If you can however, I would advise spending time flicking through the many books now on offer in bookshops.  Not only are you likely to find
this a relaxing and enjoyable exercise, you will find yourself drawn to the right books for you at that time.  

Follow your gut instincts, pick the one with the cover you like or the title that makes you smile.
Enter the store with an open mind and ready to explore wherever your natural instincts take you.

Living the 80/20 Way
Living the 80/20 Way by Richard Koch
If you knew that you could always get more of the great things that life has to offer,
with less effort ad cost, would you be interested?  If you could find a simple solution
to your problems by following a way that always works, would you be interested?

If you could work a two-day week, and yet get much better results and pay than you
do for a full week now, would you be interested?  If that way applied not just to
making a living, to money, or success, but also to the even more important areas of life
- the people that you love and care for, and your happiness and fulfillment
- would you be interested?

You can transform your life if you follow the 80/20 Way.  In his titles, 'The 80/20 Principle'
and 'The 80/20 Individual' Koch demonstrates to readers how to use the 80/20 principle, achieving more with less in a predominately business context.  In this third book, Koch
now helps the reader to succeed personally as well as professionally, to make a
good life as well as living.

The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen & Robert Allen

In the best-selling tradition of 'Who Moved My Cheese', 'The One Minute Millionaire' is
a fable that teaches a practical but inspiring lesson in creating true wealth - whether
you aspire to become a millionaire or simply beat credit-card debt and have
enough money to live on without worrying.

The core of the book is a parable about Michelle, a widowed mother whose life is on
the brink of ruin: unless she can raise a million dollars quickly she will lose custody of
her children.  Coupled with this story, is Robert Allen's practical advice for achieving
financial success.  His advice parallels the action in Michelle's story, as he urges us
to identify our fears and doubts, and eliminate from our lives all the roadblocks that
limit our financial potential.  Together these two stories work as a powerful tool of self-discovery, an inspirational lesson for unlocking the winner in all of us.

Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway
Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers

What is stopping you from being the person you want to be and living your life
the way you want to live it?  Fear of tackling an issue with your boss, fear of
getting to grips with the problem in your home.
Fear of change.  Fear of taking control...

Everyone has these fears, and they run throughout their lives.  Susan Jeffers' inspiring and mould-breaking book shows how to break this Catch 22 cycle and work through fear to a resolution.  Feel the fear, she urges, but do it anyway.  Dr Jeffers simple but profound techniques have inspired thousands to turn their anger into love - and their indecision into action.
