Books That Have Changed My Life #1

I am not sure if you are aware of the statistics on people keeping New Year’s Resolutions, but they are extremely low. Most people stop any resolutions by the end of the 2nd month. One study says that only 8% of people complete their resolutions each year. Wow! - Check it out here: 

Why is it that millions of people seek change, but find none?

What many people don’t realize is that to change any of the areas above or any other area of our lives, will REQUIRE more than a New Year’s Resolution, resolve or commitment. We must change who and what we are, in order to see any REAL change!

The Bible states it this way,  “ a man thinketh it his heart, so is he...” - Prov. 23:7.

Said another way, the bent of our thinking or our hearts, determines the outcomes of our life.  Maybe this is why the NT Christian is commanded to be changed by changing their MINDSET. - Rom. 12:1 - 2

In this month’s podcast, “Books That Have Changed My life” I chose to focus on two books that do nothing but change the way you think about thinking. These books don’t focus much on actions, but belief. If you haven’t read them, they are easy reads, and if digested, understood, and applied, can have life changing impact upon every area of your life. The two books are listed below:
