10 Feb 5 Book Tips: Inspirational Books to Help You Find Your Vision in Life

That with one's own search for meaning and life vision can be such a thing. When I started to deal with my vision a few years ago, it was one thing above all: frustrating.

I didn't know exactly what I actually want - let alone what I can and would like to contribute.

Although I had a strong need to find out for myself, I didn't even know where to start to discover my life's work.

Today I know that this inner resistance is a completely normal part of the process. So if you feel the same way: Let me assure you this is normal.

You have everything in you to find out.

And some things just take time. So even if it doesn't feel like it at the moment: You will find your way. Or better still: your way will find you. If you are open to it - and the fact that you are reading this is a great indicator of it.

In the search for my vision of life, I have above all else inspiring thought leaders helped. You have accompanied me on my way ever since. It's a great inspiration as well a gift to read and hear from others who live what I want.

That is why I have considered putting together good books on interesting topics as book recommendations for you on my blog in the “5 book tips” category.
