Knjige su divan način da se upoznamo s novim stvarima, idejama, usvojimo nova i promijenimo stara uvjerenja, naučimo nešto novo i proširimo vidike. U ovom blog postu su neke od onih za koje vjerujem da će koristiti svakome tko ih pročita.

Meni spadaju u top 12 jer sam iz njih primijenila i naučila najviše. Neke imam fizički doma, neke na tabletu i sve su to knjige koje vrijedi čitati više puta kroz život.

Knjige o prehrani i kuharice bit će u idućem postu.

 

12 knjiga za svaki mjesec u godini.

 

1. Tony Robbins,   Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny!

  • Po meni ima sve » teoriju, praksu, što i kako. Kako si postavljati prava pitanja, kako donositi odluke, kako bolje razumjeti sebe, svoje emocije, postavljanje ciljeva, prioriteta, kako i zašto podignuti standarde, kako promijeniti stara uvjerenja...

  • O čišćenju, organizaciji, rješavanju i izbacivanju nepotrebnih stvari (smeća) iz stana i života. Našla se u top 3 jer mi je skroz promijenila način na koji gledam stvari i "otkrila" minimalizam. Sada kupujem minimalno stvari i kad kupujem - kupujem svjesno ono što mi stvarno treba i što će mi koristiti. Izbacila sam i reciklirala hrpu stare odjeće, jakne, torbe, kozmetike, papire... sve što mi je bilo nepotrebno a iz nekog razloga toga se nisam htjela/mogla osloboditi prije. Stvarno je life-changing.
