It's easy to only know Tim Tebow as the quarterback who was cut from the NFL. He uses his story and hundreds of others who have been through difficult times and circumstances but used their strong faith in Jesus Christ. It is His helping hand that was there for each example.
I realized that if I have that faith also, my troubles may not be easily comparable.

It is often said the The Holy Bible is the user's manual for life. "Drop Dead" is a crash course of God's Word full of checks and balances to keep you, us, on the narrow path.
This book is full of examples of both what to do and not to do. Some things are taught and some are there as a reminder.
If you are determined to "sharpen your saw," this is a great read.

Grant Cardone can come across as an arrogant, cocky kind of guy but he's confident in him telling his life story; here's where I was; this is what I did; this is where I am; you can do it too. His "in-your-face" style comes as coach who wants you to maximize your potential instead of settling for good-enough.
He does admit that when he's telling of his accomplishments it may sound like he bragging, but he also admits he set out a goal, was fixated on completing said goal and once he had done it, on to the next goal.
Don't quit. Go For it.

Easily relatable. Easily duplicable.

Once you listen to the beginnings of a 1st generation Canadian, Neil's trials and adversity sound similar to many who are trying to find their way.
The difference is the author has recorded and shared the popular use of Self-Help techniques in his own life and tells us the results he's experienced as if he's saying, "this is where I was, this is what I did, here's where I am; you can do it too."
Very motivating. Highly recommended.

Obviously this is a book you'll have to listen to more than once. 20 tips through 20 chapters from 20 Billionaires. What surprises me is the distinction between a "Millionaire Mind" and a "Billionaire Mind."
Also, if you're neither, you're classified as a "Drifter."

I expected the psychology of dealing with people. What we have is a Highly educational case study of Strangers being spies, double agents, pedophiles, date rapists and suicide. Their behaviors are explained as a psychological aftermath; cause and effect.
The author is well read and also reads his own work. I really liked the real recordings when looking into each case.

Who hasn't heard of John Wooden?
Arguably the greasted coach in sports history. He breaks down all the steps in his pyramid so we can take a look at many areas of our lives to make those adjustments to achieve a version of success. Carty couples time-proven Biblically Based principles, the Inside of Oneself has to be renewed before we can see the changes on the outside for others to see.

Not too many people get excited when we're talking about investing, proper life insurance, wills and taxes, but the storey of the Wealthy Barber is narrated with anticipated dialog between client and advisor.
Easy listening with so much great content.
