Below are the books that i have read / listened to via audible, and have served a purpose in me taking my next step. If you want to excel in life, you must develop not only physically but mentally. The internet allows us to be and remain connected; we have infinite resources available to us at a click of a finger (maybe a few). Have a look at the below books which i highly recommend, in no particular order – although The Power of Now is one of my all time favorites.

THE POWER OF NOW – Eckhart Tolle

To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere – in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.


In Accelerating Excellence, James King draws on his 15 years of experience as a trusted advisor to some of the world’s most elite and exclusive organizations, combined with cutting-edge scientific research, to reveal the foundational principles that are proven to drive elite performance. This inspiring book is bursting with highly actionable strategies you can apply today that will make you better tomorrow.
