Sometimes, the things that happen in your life can make you question if you're as good at slaying the day as you think. Whether it's because of things happening at work, being overwhelmed with all that has to happen at home, or if you're just feeling stuck in life, everyone goes through that moment where they need to be reminded that they got this. Since everyone isn't always able to talk to a friend that can reinforce that statement, having empowering books when you need to know you got this on hand will prove to be beneficial in more ways than one.
When I get into a nasty funk, I really consider if I'm doing all the right things in life. Being a writer and an entrepreneur isn't easy, and I've probably tried to quit more often than not. But it is in those times when I want to quit the most that I have to reinforce the fact that I really can do this, and nothing can stop me. Between delivering positive affirmations to myself and pulling from my books of empowerment, I get through those dampening moments in little to no time.
One thing I've learned over the years is that it's OK to ask for help. Or, in this case, search for it. Everyone goes through those down moments, and that's OK to say. So, if you need a little help to remind you that you've got this, these 13 books will help you stand strong.
