10 Personal Development Books Everyone Should Read

“You cannot open a book without learning something.” – Confucius

In high school I rarely read books outside of the classroom. Back then, I felt that everything I needed to know could be found by watching television. Later, I realized in order to accomplish my goals, I needed to work on my personal development.

That was when I began reading books of all kinds. In addition to reading John Grisham novels, I also read books on spirituality, health, and relationships. I’ve learned that no matter what issue I’m facing, someone had already written a book to help me solve that issue

Here are 10 books that have made an immediate impact on my personal development and help show me the way to the extraordinary life. Continue Reading This Post »

Small Ways to Show Kindness

posted by Alex Blackwell

Kindness

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” – Mark Twain

There are small ways we can show kindness every day. Whether to our neighbor, our friend, our family, or a stranger, the little gestures can make a big impact on someone’s life. Here are a few ways you can show you care, while making someone’s day better…

Share a cup of coffee – Take someone out and buy them a cup of coffee. Get comfortable, talk for hours, enjoy your brew. To the person you’re sharing it with; this act of kindness will mean a lot.

Invite someone over for dinner – One of the most enjoyable things to do with a new friend is eating a meal together. Create an inviting atmosphere and personal touch by having them over for dinner. You likely won’t spend any extra money, but the impact you’ll have on the other person is huge.

Donate your unused items – We all have clothes and other items that we no longer need, use, or like anymore. You could take them to the local thrift shop, or you could give them to a friend in need! It’s a wonderful act of kindness to pass on your gently used, or maybe never used, items to someone who could use them.

Write an encouraging letter – The written word can go a long way. Take the time to get an inspiring card, or write your own short note, for someone who needs an uplifting word. This kind act may seem small, but the extra effort will show them how much you care.

Provide them with something that they need – Maybe you’ve heard a friend or co-worker mention a grocery item or other household item they need. Maybe it’s something you have, or maybe it’s something you have access to for free or with a discount. Take the opportunity for showing kindness and provide them with their needed item. If you’re able to fill the need, be a blessing!
