Print Resources for Self Growth

Here are 4 of the best resources I have grown from over the course of my professional career. Lawyers, how would these apply for you?

Think & Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
From this book I was inspired to create Master Mind groups, some that I now call Business Owner Accountability Groups (for the small business owner) and Solo Practitioner Accountability Groups (for the lone attorney).

Readers also get motivation in necessary business traits like decision-making, organized planning, mental toughness, etc. Its a classic still on my shelf and often reviewed today! A relevant read for the attorney.

The 12 Bad Habits that hold GOOD people back by James Waldroop and Timothy Butler
Subtitled, overcoming the behavior patterns that keep you from getting ahead, this book is a comprehensive study on the 12 common patterns we fall into and cases of professionals struggling through them.

Each of us wants to accomplish certain things over time, yet we all fall behind based on the above patterns. Until we are aware of and address these patterns we will not accomplish what we want. Pick up this book for your own reference.

The Power of FOCUS by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt
Subtitled How to Hit Your Business, Personal and Financial Targets with Absolute Certainty, one of the key chapters for me is about habits – those we strive to practice and those that perpetuate the patterns that hold us back.

Among other things, our creation of habits is key in our ability to focus, especially in multi-tasking environments or those with huge time commitments such as the attorney world.

self-promotion for introverts by Nancy Ancowitz
Subtitled the quiet guide to getting ahead, Nancy understands what is at risk for the introvert who owns a business or is responsible for business development. Without excusing the introvert for resisting self-promotion, Ancowitz instead helps us focus on those things we are naturally good at and suggests how to use them to develop business.

Full of techniques and tips, this will help avid readers put actions in place while helping them feel better about promotion. Lawyers are most commonly introverts, so this is a great resource!

  1. My son is getting maeirrd this weekend, and while I’m looking forward to it, and love his bride, the thought of spending the weekend with lots of people I don’t know yet(the bride’s family) is making me a bit nervous. It sounds nutty. Her mother and father are lovely people, I like them and we share a lot of interests and they really love our son, but we don’t know each other well due to distance factors. We’ve never met her sister either, she’s flying in from another country a few days before. I’ll be meeting the bride’s grandparents, aunts and uncles for the first time too. I have no problem meeting people, but this next weekend is going to go over my limit for new people in a short time span. I’m hoping to be able to sneak off occasionally for some air, maybe a trot at the gym or a massage.I don’t want to come of as geeky, stiff or awkward, which seems to be my specialty :-O Wish me luck.

    • Good day, Nanako,
      You have exciting times ahead with new relationships. Although we tend
      To be anxious about spending time with large groups of people, what we really do is
      Take time with one or two individuals at a time. Keep focusing on a few although you
      Although you see many. Your energy will last longer.
      Wishing you well!
