3 Books That Changed My Life Instantly

…Mey here on a Thursday morning, winter is coming, it is dark and cooler outside, grateful for my son and husband and my mom and our beautiful home here in Honolulu HI, blogging about 3 Books That Changed My Life Instantly

…ever read a book and then INSTANTLY, your life changed for the better?

…you had an AH HAH moment and then BOOM, instantly you were a better person?

…sometimes a book can change you slowly, sometimes it has an impact years later, however, these 3 books changed my life the second I read the life changing words that were found in them

…the first helped me lose 3 pounds easily in 2 weeks without any change to how much I exercise…

…the second gave me more money in my bank account every month…

…and the third helped me live in every moment, and appreciate how extraordinary life really is…

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

…the first book is The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg…

…I actually am still listening to the audiobook, and it is a very powerful book, written in a way that you want to hear what is going to happen next…

…so, here’s my story…

…while listening to the book as he’s summarizing the kinds of habits people might want to change…

…he mentioned a “snacking habit” and INSTANTLY I realized I had a snacking habit…

…and I decided as the sentence rolled through my ears and into my brain that I would stop snacking…

…I realized that I was just eating chocolate in my office out of habit…

…if it was there, I would grab a piece…

…and that ended up being about 5 pieces a day if there was a good supply under my desk or in the copy room…

…and I wasn’t even hungry…

…sure enough, right then I stopped snacking…

…that was about 2 weeks ago…

…I would go into the copy room and even motion towards the chocolate, then I would ask myself, are you hungry?

…and my response was, NO…

…so then I didn’t eat the snack…

…you know what?

…I’ve lost 3 pounds already and have not been doing anything else different…

…that one sentence brought to my attention that I had this automatic behavior that I wanted to change…

…and I changed it on the spot…

Money is My Friend for the New Millennium: 2nd Edition

…ever start making more money instantly?

…I did after reading Money is My Friend for the New Millennium: 2nd Edition by Phil Laut…

…in it he had a section that discussed why we need to spend the earnings from our Financial Freedom Account (the money that we are saving to become financially free/retire)…

…prior to reading this, I had my dividends being automatically re-invested back into the REIT (stock)…

…I immediately turned off the re-investment, and ever since then, I’ve been paying myself my earnings, and boy does making money feel a lot more fun now!

…instantly, I had a bigger paycheck every month because I was also paying myself!

Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

…reading Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives by Dan Millman is like reading a novel…

…there was even a movie make about the book…

…it’s entertaining and fun to read…

…a real page turner…

…it was recommended to me by Aaron Rashkin, who spoke to us on stage at an event for our business and said that the book changed his life…

…so I went and read it…

…and WOW, did it change my life…

…there was this one part in the book where the character is told my his mentor to sit all day on a rock and come up with an important and extraordinary idea…

…and he sits there, coming up with ideas and getting sent back, until he has been out there literally all day…

…what does he come up with?

…there are no extraordinary moments…

…so how did that impact me?

…I realized that I had been living with ALIVE TIME and DEAD TIME…

…alive time is like now, when I’m blogging, or when I’m parasailing or surfing…

…dead time was when I was walking up and down the stairs at my bank to process something…

…and I realized that there is no dead time…

…that all of my time is extraordinary…

…and so when I walk up and down the stairs at my bank, sometimes now I will think, what is extraordinary about this moment?

…what is special about RIGHT NOW?

Conclusion

…hope you enjoyed reading about these 3 great books that really impacted my life for the better…

…it’s so true that reading and learning new knowledge on a daily basis will transform your life for the better…

…it’s funny how a lot of people don’t do it…

…they watch tv instead, or gossip with their friends, or listen to music instead, when they could be listening to audio books…

…I’m going to tell you a secret, I’m in a community where we encourage each other to read everyday…

…and we give each other more books to learn from, and we teach each other what we’ve learned…

…and we do this because we want to empower other people…

…empower them to live a better life, to become wealthier, to live up to their fullest potential…

  1. I LOVE the Power of Habit!! I’m looking forward to reading your other 2 suggestions as this is the first I’m hearing of them. Thank you for your suggestions and reviews 🙂

    1. Thanks for the comment Jenny. Yes, that book was really a life changer. The other two are going to change your life too! Enjoy =)

  2. Great post Meylysa! I enjoyed your post and the parts about habit, money as a friend and sitting…waiting for some information to hit you and you take it in. It’s true about watching tv, gossiping with friends/relatives are what a lot of people do. Once you break the barrier and start reading instead of watching tv, it’s hard to go back to watching the tube. Anyway, how true…how true…good post!

    1. Thanks for the comment Rick and visiting my blog. glad you like the post! I know you are reading The Laws of Success now, I don’t watch tv at all…

  3. I JUST read Money is My Friend and I am SO happy that other people have found that book as well. I think it should be required reading in high school! I love what you are doing here, it’s very empowering to see other people sharing love and helping others achieve great things. Thank you for the work you do. Grateful to be a new follower of your path and media. Thank you! Zach
