My Library: Must Read Books for Resilience

Must-Read Books for Resilience by Em Capito, LCSWIn every book, there lies the possibility of your entire life changing.

These titles were not selected lightly.

In our lifetimes, we can only read so many books. As someone who has consumed hundreds of nonfiction works, I have become increasingly picky, and you should be, too.

These are the rare gems that left an indelible impression, sparking an unavoidable trajectory shift in my own life, and often in the lives of my clients.

Trust your intuition. The right book for right now is waiting for you.

1. The Crossroads of Should and Must by Elle Luna

I was fortunate to meet Elle Luna during her book launch and this is the go-to book I gift to fellow resilience warriors: the thinkers, speakers, event makers, hosts and storytellers who I have the good fortune of connecting and collaborating with. It’s a bit of a sleeper – massively loved, but most have never heard of it, which makes it special, unlike massive best sellers where everyone already has a copy.

Most importantly, you can read (and re-read) this visually stunning call to purpose in just a couple hours, rather than sitting on the shelf of good intentions gathering dust.
