Can't get enough audio books...

Since doing Chalene Johnson's "30 Day Challenge to Master Organization and Achieve Your Goals" I have been all about using my time wisely (even more than before hehe.) One of her tips was to listen to personal development audio books in the car instead of music, every once in awhile. Don't get me wrong, I still love to crank up the tunes and jam out in my car. But when I get the itch to do a little learning during my trips to and from the dance studio I'll pop in an audio book.

 So far I have listened to:

 "Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think" by Brian Wansink
















"The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness" by Dave Ramsey
















and I'm currently on "Entreleadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom From the Trenches" by Dave Ramsey (can you tell I'm a huge Dave Ramsey buff?)














By far my most favorite one (so far) has been Entreleadership. So many of the things he has said have made an impact on me. I'm SUCH a perfectionist and I don't take criticism well (I take it very personally, actually) and I'm really trying to work on this. A quote he gave from Aristotle is now going to be my personal mantra and I liked it so much I wanted to share it with you.

Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being 
nothing”

Unless I want to go through life coasting, not making any impact on any one's life, not accomplishing anything major, I have to learn to accept criticism. It's a part of the game. Hope this quote can also ring true for you.
