Two of my all-time favorite inspirational books:

The Four Agreements
by Don Miguel Ruiz

This book changed my view of how I respond to others and my own thoughts.  It guided me through a deeply provocative, compelling, life-altering journey, one that shaped my worldview. My favorite quote from the book: “We keep searching and searching, when everything is already within us.”  Often the journey is all about finding self.

The Alchemist
by Paulo Coelho

This book led me on a journey to find my personal legend…my dream.   As I venture into more and more new adventures, I redefine my dreams using what all I learned from this awesome book. My favorite quote from the book: “No heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”  May we all search for our dreams!
