My favorite book: Today we are rich

Last week, over tea with Uran, I found myself quoting from a great book I read this year – Today We Are Rich, by Tim Sanders.
In it, Sanders discusses 7 principles to help you improve your confidence, and in turn improve your career and personal performance:
1. Feed Your Mind Good Stuff
2. Move the Conversation Forward
3. Exercise Your Gratitude Muscle
4. Give To Be Rich
5. Prepare Yourself
6. Balance Your Confidence
7. Promise Made, Promise Kept
Uran & I were talking about friendships, and the natural tendency to gossip. I mentioned the 2nd principle, Move the Conversation Forward, as the challenge to always create a conversation around solutions, not problems.
So this holiday season, when you’re with family & friends, try focusing on the positive and steering conversations away from gossip, or other negative topics. Hopefully it makes for a happier holiday season!
Here’s a free download I found of the first principle from the book – Feed your mind good stuff. If you like it, read the whole thing to read on the plane or next to the fire or download it to listen on that long flight or drive over the holidays!
