Sometimes when we decide there is something in our lives we want to improve, we make the mistake of falling for the false belief that change needs to be big, and it needs to be fast.

6. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
As people striving for success, we have been told time and again to always look ahead to the future.

In engaging in those behaviors, we forget something very important to our happiness and well being: the present. Eckhart Tolle wrote and narrated this audiobook to help you learn to spend more of your time in the Now, so you can be happier, healthier and more successful. The past is behind you and the future is yet to come: the Now is where you really need to be.
7. Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins
If you ever find yourself feeling dissatisfied, craving something even though it seems on the outside you have everything you need, you are not alone. Many of us want more than what we have, often for good reasons. Anthony Robbins believes everyone has more potential locked inside them than they have allowed themselves to utilize. His audiobook will teach you how to awaken that part of you that wants to do and be more, so you can finally find an outlet for that craving you never knew had a purpose before.
One reason many of us procrastinate is because there is one thing, out of a list of many other things, that we do not want to do. We try to do everything else first, but we are too distracted and weighed down by that one thing we are dreading. The saying goes that if you start each morning by eating a frog, you will be able to tackle any obstacle thereafter – because you have already done the worst thing you will do all day. Brain Tracy uses this concept to show you how to stop procrastinating, get done what you need to get done and spend less time avoiding your responsibilities.
