Well Steves, we’ve come a long way to get where we are now. Through 16 episodes, we’ve garnered national media attention, debuted in the top 1% on Apple Podcasts, and filled the minds of thousands of listeners with advice and wisdom that will last a lifetime.
As a whole, we are committed to bettering ourselves each day. Whether it is learning to meditate, or reflecting on past mistakes, Ya Neva Know is all about putting oneself in the position to succeed. That means situating yourself in uncomfortable situations, seeking new ways to gain knowledge, and exposing yourself to new ideas.
Open to everything, attached to nothing. Remember that little saying?
So to help make us all live better happier lives, here is a rundown of seven essential books mentioned on the podcast at one point or another.
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra
C’mon, you knew this would be the first one. Chopra’s Seven Laws give the reader tools to create wealth organically. He tells how to live within the natural balance of the world, while, at the same time, maximizing what the world gives us to generate success.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
Hill’s book has stood the test of time when it comes to motivational literature. Through interviewing many different millionaires, Hill found patterns with successful people. This book goes into detail on how to control our destiny and how to deal with defeat. Written in 1937, it goes to show you do not have to make changes when it is perfect the first time. Can someone say Bill Belichick?
Jump by Steve Harvey
Mentioned by Versace in The Steves 3, Jump is about finding what Harvey describes as the Divine Spirit within you to make your life goals come to reality. He elaborates on ideas of faith and God that, in return, helps inspire us to create. Whether you are a Christian or not, Jump is more about harnessing the power of universal truths that exist around us.
The 50th Law by Robert Greene & 50 Cent
Another awesome book mentioned in The Steves 3. 50 Cent joins forces with Robert Greene, the author of The 48 Laws of Power, to speak to readers through the life of 50. The main theme? Fear nothing. If you do this, 50 and Greene argue you can overcome any adversity.
Cheers to Fears by Jarrett Lockhart & Jeremy Holmes
Travis Kelce mentioned this excellent book when he joined the pod, and it has left an impression on my mind ever since. Focusing on what life is like for athletes when they leave their sport, Lockhart and Holmes share their trials and tribulations to help readers avoid unnecessary hardships. This book instills the power of perseverance and dedication needed to succeed in life.
Did I Ever Wake Up by Mod Sun
Mod Sun joined us last week, and during the conversation, he briefly mentioned his first book. In Did I Ever Wake Up, Mod Sun tells of his life journey that began in Minnesota. Through positive thinking and hard work, this book is about taking control of our existence and using it to live the life we want.
