What Are You Struggling With?

Ep157: 10 Books That Changed My Life in 2015 (how many have you read?)

Play Episode

During the course of 2015 I recently discovered that I have read over 20 books!

Well . . . to be honest, I listened to the audio version of some of them, and I probably didn’t finish all of them.

That aside, I have read some truly incredible books.

So I put together this list of the top 10 books that I read that changed my life for the better.

Each of these books truly altered my life for the better and made me a better person, happier, healthier, or just see life through a better lens.

If you have a minute during the holidays, I would suggest reading any one of the books on the list.  Nursing is so much more than cramming your face into nursing books all day.  These books will help you be happier and find greater success both in nursing school and in life.

The One Thing – Gary Keller

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success – Carol Dweck

Radical Acceptance – Tara Brach

Smartcuts – Shane Snow

Your Turn

I am always looking for a great book to read . . . do you have a suggestion (I probably won’t read it if it’s fiction . . . sorry!) . . . share your favorite book from 2015 below!
