First up!

THE 5AM CLUB - OWN YOUR MORNING. ELEVATE YOUR LIFE.

by Robin Sharma


For a long time I resisted reading this book because I thought, 'I'll never be a person who wakes up at 5am!' - however, this book is so much more than this principle. It is delightful story of three people who travel the world and thus is makes is a good holiday read or lighter read than traditional self-help books. The amount of passages I highlighted in this book speaks to its wisdom. It was a very important book for me personally and I highly recommend it to friends looking to find direction in their lives by delving into what they value and what is truly important. This book spoke to the shortness and unpredictability of life - to live now and live with love and truthfulness in all we do and I think that is worth its weight in gold.


“Limitation is nothing more than a mentality that too many good people practice daily until they believe it’s reality. It breaks my heart to see so many potentially powerful human beings stuck in a story about why they can’t be extraordinary, professionally and personally. You need to remember that your excuses are seducers, your fears are liars and your doubts are thieves.”




And lastly ...


BE HERE NOW.

by Ram Dass


Not only is this story of Ram Dass's life and work incredibly interesting, but this is a very unique book and is filled with wonderful quotes and illustrations. It makes a perfect gift for the yogi in your life or as a bedside table read - one you can flick through for inspiration now and then. Ram Dass, known as Professor Richard Alpert, who used to be an academic at Harvard, became a yogi on a path to enlightenment. From the transition of scholar to yogi, he became interested in the effects of psychedelics such as LSD. His work and research in this field established Dass as the preeminent seeker of the twentieth century.
