Always be learning, and never underestimate how what you read and listen to impacts your overall mindset and outlook on life.  Remember your thoughts lead to your actions, and your actions lead to your legacy and the way you live your daily life.  What you think matters, and being mentally fit can play a huge role in helping with your physical fitness.

Many of the themes in these books overlap, but they are organized below by general category.  This certainly isn’t an exhaustive list, but hopefully it gives you some ideas.  Most of these books are also available to listen to- so download them and listen to them in the car, shower, etc.  Get after it!
