The Arch Way: Reading

I’ve never been much of a reader. That all changed as I grew older. After I graduated college, I received a lot of self help books. It’s the genre that I absolutely love! Self help books motivate me, inspire me, and encourage me to do better. They help us realize who we are and what we are born to do. They empower us with the tools to succeed. They help us identify our brand. They channel our inner purpose. They explain how to define our goals. They lay out a roadmap to turn our dreams into realities. Here’s a consolidated list of several self help books. Feel free to add your picks to the list at the bottom! Happy reading!
