It all started with a simple suggestion. A couple of years ago, a friend told me to download the Audible app from Amazon and listen to the audiobook Essentialism by Greg McKeown. She said it’d change my life – and it did!
I’ve always enjoyed books, but since I’m often so busy, it’s challenging to find time to read. That’s partly why I was curious to try out this app. Unlike listening to audiobooks on a Kindle or other device, this app works on your smartphone. Whether you sync your phone to your car (via Bluetooth), or you use a pair of headphones (while you’re at the gym or running errands), you can use Audible anytime, anywhere.
Little did I realize that Audible would become one of my favorite ways to “expand my horizons” as I drove from home to work, and beyond. After listening to the first few chapters of this life-transforming audiobook, I was hooked (on both the book and the app)! Not only is this audiobook one of my faves (since it encourages us to re-think everything we do to find greater purpose and fulfillment), the whole concept of audiobooks (from the convenience of our phones) makes learning easier.
After listening to this audiobook (on the way to work, while running errands, etc.), I felt inspired to download even more books. Since then, I’ve listened to a number of life-changing books (listed below are a few of my faves, plus some that are on my wishlist) that catalyze us to live our best lives now. The books listed here are a mix of personal growth, spirituality and mindfulness, money and personal finance, and success mindset techniques.
