This week’s Monday Mentions contains several books I’ve recently read or intend to read soon.
What are you reading?
Mind Your Mindset by Michael Hyatt and Megan Hyatt Miller
I read a pre-release version of this book and it is incredible. It is packed full of science and practical insights.
My biggest takeaway is this quote:
Do you trust the voice in your head?
Our brains are remarkable. They subconsciously translate the events around us into meaningful storylines that inform what we think and how we live. The problem is, the stories our minds feed us as facts aren’t always true.
Worse, these stories turn into false beliefs about others, the world, and ourselves that keep us from our true potential.
These limiting beliefs confront us all. But what if you could harness your brain’s operating system to tell a new story? Not just any story. A true story that empowers you to overcome limitations and surpass your goals.
Drawing upon the latest insights in performance psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science, as well as case studies from their own clients, New York Times bestselling author Michael Hyatt and Megan Hyatt Miller outline a framework anyone can follow to test their own assumptions and start living better, truer stories that shape superior outcomes in business and life.
How (Not) to Save the World by Hosanna Wong
A practical, straightforward guide for Christ-followers who want to talk about Jesus without feeling weird or pushy.
Ten years ago, Hosanna Wong packed her life into suitcases and started traveling the country to talk to people about Jesus. She quickly discovered lies she had believed that held her back from actually sharing God’s love.
It turns out, believing lies that you’re not enough, your story doesn’t matter, and there’s no way for you to make an impact… that’s how not to save the world.
Through faithfully studying God’s Word and fumbling through her own flawed progress, Hosanna uncovered what the Bible says about revealing God’s love in our everyday lives.
With honesty and humor, Hosanna will help you:
- Embrace your unique story to naturally talk about Jesus through your real life and authentic relationships;
- Discover the three most effective steps to take when fighting for a loved one who is in a tough place;
- Overcome the lies that hold you back so you can step into your calling and empower people to encounter God.
It turns out, you can naturally share God’s love in your everyday life. You can fight for those you love, and a world Jesus loves. There is a way for every person you know to realize how valuable they are to God. You’ve been created for it, equipped for it, and you’re ready for it. Let’s go!
