Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.  Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.    – Helen Keller

All of us need great resources.  I find mine mostly in books and related podcasts.  Often, through the years, I find myself re-reading individual chapters and specific pages of books over and over again.  That’s what so great about books: The printed word never changes, yet can offer new meaning every time we read them. 

Here are several resources that I use and recommend. Hopefully, they’ll be as valuable to you as they are to me.

NOTE:  Some of these resources are free and some aren’t.  Those that are paid resources are affiliate products or services, meaning if you buy them, I get a commission at NO EXTRA COST to you.  Please know that I have personal experience with all of the following resources, which is why I recommend them.
