7 Books That Will Transform Your Business (and Life)

Not Impossible Bill Baren

As a lifelong learner, it is a passion of mine to continually acquire new knowledge about marketing, sales, and mastering the inner game of building a business.

When you finally master the game of marketing, you attract new leads effortlessly.  When you master the game of enrollment conversations, you exponentially increase your income in your business. Finally, when you master your inner psychology, nothing stops you from achieving what you set out to accomplish.

I am continually reading and educating myself to improve upon my skills in these three areas because I see it as a lifelong journey to master these domains.

In the information age, there’s so much information out there that it’s challenging to narrow it down to the most relevant and supportive material for you while you move forward in your business. So I’d like to help you out by offering up some of my own personal favorites in my library.

Today, I’m sharing seven books that can transform your business (and life) by reading and applying their principles to your business.

My guide to setting a powerful intention for 2018

Theme

I want to share with you one of my deepest and most powerful transformational practices. I look forward to it every year. Without exception, huge transformation occurs for me as a result of it.

It’s creating a THEME for the year.

This is about choosing a one or two-word theme, which becomes a powerful intention that acts like an invisible guide for everything that I do in the year. As I put conscious focus and attention on my theme during the year — amazing things happen with very little effort.

I usually pick my theme on New Year’s Eve, but this year, the theme emerged early.  And I couldn’t be more excited.

2018 is the “Year of Yes!”

I want to share with you what lead me to this…

As the business has grown and as demands on my time professionally and personally outstripped availability, I have become very guarded and protective of my time and of my energy. My team devised ways of guarding my schedule and only allowing me to see a fraction of all communication. Not only did it seem like the right thing to do, it felt like the only thing that could be done.

After a few years of operating like this, I felt like my whole being became a NO to everything. I felt disconnected. I felt closed off. I began to feel emotionally walled off.

It took me a while to diagnose what was wrong. And as soon as I knew, my theme immediately sprang into action. Thus the “Year of Yes!” was born.

In 2018, I am going to say Yes to life. I am going to bring all of myself to each person I interact from a place of gracious service. I will also surrender to the fullness of my being to each moment, knowing that my complete presence and connection is a true gift to me and everything around me.

My Yes’s will be full. My Maybe’s and No’s will be unapologetic No’s.

I am truly on fire!  And my theme ignited the flame.

Now it’s your turn.

Here’s what I suggest you do to create your own THEME for 2018.

#1 – take a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of your life and tune into what you really want for yourself and what’s been holding you back. Journal on that for 15-30 minutes. And then ask yourself what yearly theme would give you the breakthrough you are seeking. Trust your gut knowing that you can’t go wrong.

#2 – once you have a theme, please share it with important people in your life as a public declaration of your desire for a breakthrough (also share it here with me in the comments below this post)

#3 – get a brand new journal for the coming year, put your theme at the top of it and create a practice of journaling around your theme at least 3 times per week

Once you do this practice, you will experience a breakthrough. You will live into your theme and your life will never be the same again.

It happens for me every year, and it will happen for you.

Let me know what is your theme for 2018 in the comments below this post (or please share any ideas you are playing with)

Intentionally yours,
~Bill

P.S. 2018 is going to be an amazing year. Can you feel it?

My guide to setting a powerful intention for 2017

Theme

I want to share with you one of my deepest and most powerful transformational practices. I look forward to it every year. And without exception, huge transformation occurs for me as a result of it.

It’s creating a THEME for the year.

This is about choosing a one or two-word theme, which becomes a powerful intention that’s like an invisible guide for everything that I do in the year. As I put conscious focus and attention on my theme during the year in a relaxed way — amazing things happen with very little effort.

I’m still marinating on my theme for 2017. But I want to share some of the most powerful themes from past years, as well as instructions for you to create your own.

2014 THEME: LOVING MYSELF

Even as I write this, tears are coming to my eyes remembering the impact of putting gentle focus and attention on fully learning and embracing love for myself. It was a little scary when I took this on… but it changed my life in so many ways.

2011 THEME: SIMPLICITY

I love it when I discover a way to make something that seems really complicated into something really simple. There’s something liberating about that to me.
At the same, this is a difficult theme for me because I have lot of ideas and creativity. I’m going to infuse this theme into 2017 as a secondary theme (time to bring simplicity back into the picture!)

Here’s what I suggest you do to create your own THEME for 2017.

#1 – take a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of your life and tune into what you really want for yourself and what’s been holding you back. And then ask yourself what yearly theme would give you a break through.

#2 – once you have a theme, please share it with important people in your life as a public declaration of your desire for a breakthrough (also share it here with me in the comments below this post)

#3 – get a brand new journal for the coming year, put your theme at the top of it and create a practice of journaling around your theme at least 3 times per week
Once you do this practice, you will experience a breakthrough. You will live into your theme and your life will never be the same again.

It’s happens for me every year, and it will happen for you.

Let me know what your theme for 2017 is here (or please share any ideas you are playing with)

Intentionally yours,
~Bill

P.S. 2017 is going to be an amazing year. Can you feel it?

Why I Never Smiled | Ep. 142

Most people don’t know I was born in the Ukraine.

In Soviet culture, smiling in public was frowned upon.

So I learned to never smile.

Until, something changed my life forever.
