Time for a Change
We've all heard the saying "you're perfect in your own way." Which is one of the truest statements that can be applied to anyone and everyone in the world. Another undeniable saying that we all are familiar with is "there's always room for improvement." These two statements seem pretty contradictory on the surface, but dig a little deeper and you might find that they can exist in harmony. We are always growing and changing, a lot of the time, for the better. But one thing we, as human beings, have a problem with is getting out of our comfort zones, which can often stop our growth process. Getting out of your comfort zone means more than just doing something risky or trying something new. It also means changing toxic habits that we may have formed throughout our lives. It means to become emotionally aware of how our inner monologue affects us and our actions, how our actions affect those around us, and putting in the work to make necessary changes. But where do we even begin? Well, lucky for us, Hoopla and CloudLibrary have wide selections of self-help titles to help you get started. To name a few:

You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.
Learn how to:
• Make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy);
• Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower;
• Design your environment to make success easier;

...and much more. This is a popular title, so try out the summary if it isn't available!

The Five Levels of Attachment by Don Miguel Ruiz Jr.
Do you hold your beliefs? Or do your beliefs hold you? In this groundbreaking work, Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. writes that we have all unwittingly made agreements about how we think we should live our lives and what we believe our personal truths are. But what most of us do not realize is that each one of these agreements represents an attachment, a limiting filter on who we think we are, and what our future could hold. The Five Levels of Attachment provides you with a measuring stick to understanding how tied you are to any belief, idea, or opinion.
