What’s on your mind this year? It might seem like a strange question until you recognize that you can influence your thought patterns. While brain training is excellent, one of the best ways to hack the brain is by selecting and getting into a good ol’ read.

Pump up your self-development in 2020 by engaging with some solid content designed to help you usher in your best self.

1. Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach

Do you ever experience the fear of not being “good enough?” Reckoning with the world’s criticisms of us can be damaging. For many, self-talk influenced by others’ expectations and opinions can unintentionally bring us down and spin us into a cycle of negativity.

Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach is your go-to guide on how to tap into not only accepting but becoming fond of yourself as you are. It’s a mental reworking centered on the belief that every person is worthy of love and acceptance.

2. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

The start of a new year calls for a roll call on inventory that goes for physical items, relationships, and anything else that takes up space in your life and mind. While some aspects like relationships are a tad more complex to address, do what you can for your mental space by clearing your physical space.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo is the testament of a Japanese cleaning consultant who addresses the art of decluttering for physical and mental gain. The best selling book is full of testimonials of those who have experienced the life-changing experience of becoming organized.

3. You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

Do you ever need that extra kick? Something that forces you to decide, or that one friend that always pushes you to be better? Sometimes facing challenges and overcoming obstacles is a talk we need to have with ourselves.

Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass is that kick. She hits readers right over the head with a dose of reality and takes overthinking out of the equation. With a witty tone and a realist approach, it provides you with a dose of motivation perfect for kicking off the year.

4. Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy

Speaking of motivation, sometimes moving forward, requires doing the tough things first. Prioritizing tasks is about half the battle when getting them done, and even if you’re a strong-willed person, it’s normal to struggle with doing this the best way for you.

Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy draws inspiration from Mark Twain’s quote, “ Eat a live frog first thing in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” The book is modeled after the principle of taking on the most tedious tasks first to reach productivity early on.

5. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

For the aspects of life that are hard to describe, and even uncover, it sometimes takes a mystical investigation into the inner workings of the heart and mind. This is what author Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love does with Big Magic.

An instant New York Times bestseller, Big Magic is a soul enriched source for pushing fear to the side and dreaming far past limits. It focuses on the importance of harnessing creativity in one’s life free of limitations that come from past traumas or fears. Gilbert taps into the intricacies of inspiration and insists that each person is exposed to unique circumstances that can drive their success and happiness.

Feed your mind and expand your abilities this year with a little help maximizing your time from these top reads.
