Quotes from the book

“Life goals are reached by setting annual goals. Annual goals are reached by reaching daily goals. Daily goals are reached by doing things which may be uncomfortable at first but eventually become habits. Habits are powerful things. Habits turn actions into attitudes, and attitudes into lifestyles”

“You can visualise tomorrow using it as motivation to grow, but if you want to actually grow, your focus needs to be on today”

“If you want to grow, don’t try to win big. Try to win small”

“As we think in our hearts, so we become”

“Growth doesn’t come from staying in your comfort zone”

If you haven’t already noticed, I could have written waaaay more quotes for you, but I’ll try to keep it short – but I pretty much highlighted the majority of the book, because I was just so inspired when reading it!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – MIND TO MATTER

If you are into Law of Attraction, Quantum Physics and how your thoughts and your vibration creates your reality – then this is definitely a book for you! Here is a book recommendation of “Mind to Matter” by Dawson Church

As Jack Canfield says it on the front-cover “As The Secret meets the scientist in Dawson’s work, the boundaries of what you’ve believed possible will be stretched far beyond your existing picture of reality” – and I couldn’t agree more with this.

I’ve lived by ‘the law of attraction’ / ‘the law of vibration’ for many years, but mainly out of belief – but this book takes it to the next level and really shows the scientific behinds thoughts/vibration changing physical reality – and it’s so fascinating! In simple terms the book is about how your brain creates your material reality.

I highlighted so much in this book and kept telling my boyfriend or dad, or whoever were around “you have to hear this!”.

So if you’ve heard about all the spiritual talk about law of attraction etc. but haven’t really been convinced about it, then this book will give you lots of science to make it more understandable and real.

Quotes from the book

“Mind is able to change matter at the level of the very small – atoms and molecules. Scaling up, it can change matter at the level of cells, organs, and bodies. Getting bigger still, it can change social groups and even whole countries”

“This is the everyday superpower that you possess: second by second, you are changing your brain by the way you use your mind. The consciousness of your mind is becoming the cells of the matter of your brain”

“Each cell of your body has its own unique electromagnetic field”

“Change the field and you change the matter”

“Emotions are contagious in the same way infectious diseases are contagious”

“You are shaping the quality of cells your body produces with material inputs such as the food you eat and the water you drink”

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – BREAKING THE HABIT OF BEING YOURSELF

If you are into meditation and how to use your thoughts and frequencies to create a new reality for yourself, then you’re going to absolutely love this book! The book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe Dispenza

This book is all about how you can use meditation and going into your subconscious mind to recreate yourself. It’s so fascinating, and Joe Dispenza really dives deep into how we can use meditation on a whole other level.

What I really love about the book is how he describes it, with facts and figures and everything and explains wave lengths and frequencies of the brain. It’s really taking meditation and working with your subconscious mind to a whole other level, and it really is ‘mind-blowing’ so to say.

He highlights the fact that if you want to change your life, you can only do so by first becoming aware of what it is about your current life/reality that you do not like. You can become aware of this by meditation and be consciously paying attention to yourself and your own thoughts and behaviours. From here, you can then start to work on replacing your current reality with a new one.

It’s so fascinating, and it has already given me an even bigger boost to dive even more into my meditation routine. I’m currently following the 4-week program that is at the end of the book, and I’m so excited about diving further into my own subconscious mind.

Quotes from the book:

“We have, within our reach, all we need to make significant changes in our lives”

“The true purpose of meditation is to get beyond the analytical mind and enter into the subconscious mind so you can make real and permanent changes”

“What you think and believe has a profound effect on your world”

“We communicate with the quantum field primarily through our thoughts and feelings”

“If your thoughts determine your reality, and you keep thinking the same thoughts (which are a product and reflection of the environment), then you will continue to produce the same reality day after day”

Are you an artist or a creative, and sometimes feel lack of motivation, feel uninspired, or do not believe in the work that you do? Then I have 4 very motivating and inspiring books for you to read that will give you back that creative spark!

The War of Art – by Steven Pressfield

This little wonderful book is all about breaking through the blocks and winning your own creative battles. It is divided into 3 parts ‘resistance’, ‘combating resistance’ and ‘beyond resistance’.

Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear – by Elizabeth Gilbert

Big Magic by Elisabeth Gilbert is a book for creatives. Creatives of all kinds, whether you are a writer, painter, singer, and not only for ‘professional creatives’, but also for people who just practice being creative at home. It’s really inspirering, and gives you such a motivational spark to embrace curiosity and just start creating every time you feel that creative flow coming.

It’s also about overcoming the fear we might have that stop us from creating, which is such a shame, because as she mentions in the book, creating shouldn’t just be for coming up with a final result which we can ‘give’ to others or sell, creating should be something we do for the sake of the experience of creating something, because that is such a wonderful thing.

The Magic of Thinking Big – by David Schwartz

The Magic of Thinking Big” by David Schwartz is all about how we limit ourselves by our beliefs. We can only achieve what we let ourselves believe is possible. He encourages people to think BIG!

Most importantly of all, he encourages people to ACT on their dreams & visions. Because without action, you will never reach your dreams. He uses this lovely phrase “Action cures fear“. It is such a great phrase, and something I can definitely recognise. Sometimes we work things up in our head, overthink and everything and we never get to do the things we want to do. However, as soon as we start, flow follows and we find that it really isn’t that hard, we just have to take action and begin.

Light is the New Black – by Rebecca Campbell

This book is all about following what lights you up. Because by doing to, you’ll light up the world. This is a guide for a new generation of women who are here to light up this world (lightworkers, as she calls it). She talks about how we are in transformation into a new age, where everything we do must be an authentic expression of who we truly are.
This book is not for everyone, but if it calls you in some way, I’ll encourage you to read it.

4 BOOKS FOR INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY & CREATING NEW HABITS

Sometimes you just need some motivation or some tips and tools for increasing your productivity or for creating new and better habits. Therefore I have 4 books for exactly that, to share with you today!

Books about Productivity

Eat That Frog! – Brian Tracy


‘Eat That Frog!’ is a brilliant little book. It’s a very easy read and very manageable. It’s about how to overcome procrastination. You might recognise the feeling of putting off that one thing that you just keep on postponing? This book gives you the motivation and reasons for why ‘eating that frog’ as the first thing, is the best thing you can do for yourself.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen R. Covey

This book was one of the first ‘self-development’ books I ever read, and it is about the habits that ‘effective / productive’ people have. It covers several different aspects, such as personal management, seeking to understand first rather than to be understood and many other habits that will change your life.

Books about Creating New Habits

Atomic Habits – James Clear

I’ve already made a more in-depth book recommendation about this book, but this book is all about how creating small tiny changes in your life will add up over time and make a big difference for you. It is better to make a little change, and stick to that little habit over time, than it is to set a way too big and unrealistic goal and quit within a week.

The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg

‘Atomic Habits’ have many of its principle from ‘The Power of Habit’. I think both books are interesting in their own ways, where ‘Atomic Habits’ are more manageable and give good concrete steps to take, ‘The Power of Habit’ give more insights into the psychology behind habits. Why we have them, and why we can have a hard time breaking some habits. So it’s a really fascinating read, especially if you’re into psychology & understanding the human mind.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – ATOMIC HABITS

Do you like to improve yourself and creating new and better habits, which can change your life into a better life? Then this is a book for you! The book Atomic Habits by James Clear.

This book is all about how creating small tiny changes in your life will add up over time and make a big difference for you. It is better to make a little change, and stick to that little habit over time, than it is to set a way too big and unrealistic goal and quit within a week.

In this book, James Clear comes with several small brilliant examples of how these small habits over time will have a significant impact on your life – for the better. Do you want to live healthier? Instead of saying to yourself to quit all sugar right now, eat tons of veggies and exercise 5 days a week – start small. Try to eat 1 more vegetable each day, or add 1 smoothie to your diet each day. Over time you can begin to increase the amount, but start small and continue the practice.

I can highly recommend this book, especially if you are into growth and self-development. James Clear offers some very practical guidelines on how to change your habits, and lots of inspiration!

“All big things come from small beginnings”

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – THINK & GROW RICH

The book “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill is a bestselling book, and I completely understand why – it is magical!

The book “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill has quickly made it to the top of my favourite books. I highlighted so much of the book while reading it, because there was just so much gold in it. The book is primarily about money and how to accumulate riches, but it is also about so much more than just that. It’s about how to get anything in life.

This book is one of the front-goers for the whole ‘manifestation’, ‘law of attraction’ phenomenon, and it is so inspirering and motivating to read. It’s about how you can achieve anything, if you believe you can.

As usual, I don’t want to say too much about the book, because I think you should have the experience of reading it. But I will say that it is life-changing, and that it can really shift your perspective on life.

Below I’ve shared some of my favourite quotes from the book.

Quotes from the book

“Everything which man creates, begins in the form of a thought impulse. Man can create nothing which he does not first conceive in thought”

“You can not get, if you do not give”

“Riches begin in the form of thought. The amount is limited only by the person in whose mind the thought is put into motion”

“One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat”

“Our brains become magnetised with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and, by means which no man is familiar, these “magnets” attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life, which harmonise with the nature of our dominating thoughts”

BOOKS THAT HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE

Here are some of the books that have changed my life. There are, of course, many books that have had an impact on my life, but these are definitely some of the books that have completely changed my life perspective for, what I personally think is, the better. I hope this post can give you some new reading inspiration, and remember that if you choose to always stay open and to keep learning and growing – then wonderful things can happen!

The Magic (aka The Secret)

The Magic by Rhonda Byrne, was a book I discovered back in 2012 in England. It was a time in my life where I had lots of self doubt, and probably way to much doubts about myself and what I should do with my life. Then I came into a bookstore and this magical book just caught my attention. I remember first thinking “I want that!” and then my thoughts convinced me that “no, that is some sort of self-help book, you shouldn’t read that, that’s just stupid“, but after having walked around in the book store for a while I finally decided to buy it. I started reading it as soon as I got back to the hotel, and I was completely in love with it.

This book taught me about Gratitude, the Law of Attraction, Manifestation, and changing your life perspective to focus on the positive things in life. It’s a very practical book, because it has small exercises that you should do each day, and I recommend to completely follow it and do all the exercises. It changed my life, and I’m forever grateful for having discovered this book at the right time in my life.



Money & The Law of Attraction

Money & The Law of Attraction by Esther & Jerry Hicks.
I read this book recently, and it’s all about Manifestation & The Law of Attraction. It might be titled ‘money’, but this book is about so much more than just money. It’s about how to focus on the things that you WANT in life, and learning to attract these things into your life. It’s really good, and I probably wrote down half the book in my notebook while reading it, because there was just so much gold in it. If you haven’t heard about Law of Attraction and Manifestation before, then I would recommend reading ‘The Magic‘ first as an introduction to the subject, and then read this book later in your life, when you feel ready to dive deeper into the topic.

The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is a tiny little book with SO much gold in it. These life advices are some that I wish would be taught to everybody in school, because wauw, these are beautiful. I don’t want to say too much about it, because I think you should experience reading it for yourself. But it is a wonderful little book, that I think everybody should read.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra is another little book which everybody on this Planet should read. It’s also about manifestation, and the flow of life. How in order to receive certain things in life, we must also be willing to give these things ourselves in order to keep the flow of life going. Just like with ‘The Four Agreements’, this is also a beautiful little book, so I don’t want to say too much about it, except for: read it, it’s worth it, it’s another one of those books that could be completely life changing for you.

Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear

Big Magic by Elisabeth Gilbert is a book for creatives. Creatives of all kinds, whether you are a writer, painter, singer, and not only for ‘professional creatives’, but also for people who just practice being creative at home. It’s really inspirering, and gives you such a motivational spark to embrace curiosity and just start creating every time you feel that creative flow coming.

It’s also about overcoming the fear we might have that stop us from creating, which is such a shame, because as she mentions in the book, creating shouldn’t just be for coming up with a final result which we can ‘give’ to others or sell, creating should be something we do for the sake of the experience of creating something, because that is such a wonderful thing.

Think & Grow Rich

Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is probably one of the foregoers to ‘The Magic’ and ‘Money & The Law of Attraction’, because he spend 25 years of his life learning about what had made successful people successful. This book might be titled ‘think & grow rich’, but this book is about way more than just the financial aspect, it’s about learning a whole new way of thinking which can completely change your life. It’s about finding your purpose, creating plans, staying persistent and believing in it. Again, I don’t want to say too much, because I truly believe that this book should be experienced by reading. But I will say that it’s an amazing book! I have highlighted tons of sentences in the book, I recommended by dad to get it as well, and I also just bought 2 copies for 2 of my friends. This is definitely a game changer!

The 5 Love Languages

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman is a must-read for everybody. Not just for people wanting to improve their romantic relationship, but for everybody. This book can enhance your understanding of other people, and this can improve all your relationships. It’s about how there are 5 ‘love languages’ and that we all have a primary love language – meaning, a way that we receive and give love. But our partner might have another love language, and then miscommunication can arise as we ‘show and give’ our love in different ways and then the love might not be received by the other person, as this is not their primary love language. So if we can learn our closest ones love languages, then we can learn to ‘give’ love to them in a way that they can receive, which will improve our relationships.

These were the books that have been completely life-changing for me and my life. I would love to know which books have been life changing for your life?

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – MONEY & THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

I’ve gotten really into reading tons of books lately, and I’m already on book 5 out of my goal of 20 books for the year, which just feels so great! I feel like I’m learning and evolving all the time! This time I want to recommend you the book ‘Money & The Law of Attraction‘ by Esther & Jerry Hicks. If you are into Law of Attraction and Manifestation, then this is a book for you!

If you haven’t heard about the concept ‘The Law of Attraction‘ before, then I definitely recommend to start out with reading the book ‘The Magic‘ by Rhonda Byrne first. This is a very good beginner book to get a grasp around the concept. This concept has changed my entire life view, and I’m beyond grateful for having discovered this way of looking at life.

This book, ‘Money & The Law of Attraction‘ is the next level. It’s so good and it has many practical advices, and many repetitions as well to really make you to understand the fundamental principles of Manifestation and Law of Attraction.

Even though the book is titled ‘Money & The Law of Attraction‘, it’s not just about money, it’s about how to Attract all things in life, in all areas of your life – career, relationships, health – it is about how to get an Abundant life.

I will definitely recommend this book to everyone who is into this topic, and if you have never heard about all of this before but want to learn about it, start out by reading ‘The Magic‘, and read this later on.

Quotes

“Whenever I feel abundant, abundance finds me”

“You have to begin to tell the story of your life as you now want it to be and discontinue the tales of how it has been or how it is”

“Direct your thoughts towards what you want”
