WINNER OF THE WEEK;  Michaelangelo Mosqueda’s



This episode is going to focus on 5 self-help books you must read.

There are thousands of self-help books.  What makes a good self-help book?  Being able to take the information and implement it.

There is no magic book or advice that will automatically change your life.  You have to take action and books can provide motivation, practical steps and education on how you can make permanent and positive changes.

As we’ve talked before, hypnosis makes permanent changes to your subconscious thinking.  Self-help books are simply giving you information and direction on what changes you need to make and encourage you to do it.


  1. The Power of Now (Eckhart Tolle)

It’s no wonder that The Power of Now has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 foreign languages. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.

In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, “the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.”

Featuring a new preface by the author, this paperback shows that only after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the Now, is there Enlightenment.

  1. What Are You Hungry For?: The Chopra Solution to Permanent Weight Loss, Well-Being, and Lightness of Soul (Deepak Chopra)

After promoting this message worldwide for thirty years, bestselling author Deepak Chopra focuses on the huge problem of weight control in America with exciting new concepts. What are you hungry for? Food? Love? Self-esteem?  Peace? In this manual for “higher health,” based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, Deepak Chopra creates a vision of weight loss based on a deeper awareness of why people overeat – because they are trying to find satisfaction and wind up using food as a substitute for real fulfillment.  Repudiating the failed approaches of crash dieting and all forms of deprivation, Chopra’s new book aims directly at the problem of finding fulfillment.  When that problem is solved, he argues, normal eating falls into place automatically, and the entire system of mind and body achieves what it really desires.
“Everyone’s life story is complicated, and the best intentions go astray because people find it hard to change,” writes Chopra. “Bad habits, like bad memories, stick around stubbornly when we wish they’d go away. But you have a great motivation working for you, which is your desire for happiness. I define happiness as the state of fulfillment, and everyone wants to be fulfilled. If you keep your eye on this, your most basic motivation, then the choices you make come down to a single question: “What am I hungry for?” Your true desire will lead you in the right direction. False desires lead in the wrong direction.”
Wherever you are in life, this book will help point you in that right direction.

The truth is…We all experience the occasional negative thought. But if you always feel overwhelmed, then you need to closely examine how these thoughts are negatively impacting your lifestyle.

The solution is to practice specific mindfulness techniques that create more “space” in your mind to enjoy inner peace and happiness. With these habits, you’ll have the clarity to prioritize what’s most important in your life, what no longer serves your goals, and how you want to live on a daily basis. And that’s what you’ll learn in Declutter Your Mind.

The goal of this book is simple: We will teach you the habits, actions, and mindsets to clean up the mental clutter that’s holding you back from living a meaningful life.

You will learn:

  • 4 Causes of Mental Clutter

  • How to Reframe ALL Your Negative Thoughts

  • 4 Strategies to Improve (or Eliminate) Bad Relationships

  • The Importance of Decluttering the Distractions That Cause Anxiety

  • A Simple Strategy to Discover What’s Important to YOU

  • 400 Words That Help Identify YOUR Values

  • The Benefit of Meditation and Focused Deep Breathing (and How to Do Both)

  • How to Create Goals That Connect to Your Passions

Declutter Your Mind is full of exercises that will have an immediate, positive impact on your mindset. Instead of just telling you to do something, we provide practical, science-backed actions that can create real and lasting change if practiced regularly.
