This particular reading list is one that will really get your attention. To that end, I selected the first title below. Following are suggestions to get your head in the game.
One Second After (A novel – based on scenarios developed by the US Government) This book should be required reading for all serious people in life who value their families and hate finding out, too late, that they should have done something. It is like waiting until you have a car accident to realize your insurance is out of date….
Start Prepping!: Get Prepared-For Life
Art of War
I have met countless individuals that knew their lives would be greater, fuller, more meaningful and beautiful – if only they could figure out how to become Americans! US Citizenship! A Dream! It is such a shame that so many recent immigrants have made a sham of this dream. However, if you travel outside the US, you will be amazed at how people still fawn and dream of becoming what many of you readers already possess. Unfortunately, many of them know better about what it means to be a Citizen than many ‘citizens’.
Here than is a great introductory to getting better educated about what you already possess, and why it has become the gold standard.
The US Constitution
Courses from Hillsdale College (free online)
Hillsdale Dialogues Podcast
American Conservative University Podcast
Mark Levine Audio Rewind Podcast
Plunder and Deceit
Creature From Jekyll Island
Remember, I prefaced this list with this being simply an introductory list.
It is my belief that the reason people set New Years resolutions is either because:
- They really wish to have a different person looking at them in the mirror, or
- They spent so much time on preparing for and living through the various demands of the holiday season,
That they simply must get a grip on reality and restart.
Either way, I think the advice offered for a you here and in the previous posts is a way to get a handle on these 2 main categories.
Regarding a different you in the mirror, that really is about relationships, health and prosperity. Each of these can be tackled as a goal, and you can take a 30 day challenge to move yourself into that realm.
For 30 days, follow the advice I offer you here and in these upcoming posts. Remember that all habits can be made or broken in as little as 21 days of repetitious daily effort.
Re read the previous posts and get ready to make a different you. Oh, and by the way, there is a great post here that will help you get a quick handle on your health and weight!! Promise!!
