Three Book Titles That Changed My Life

Three Book Titles That Changed My Life

by Beth Kozan

Choosing the title for your book is important. You can change lives with a good title!

titles matterThirty years ago, while in the stress-filled world of work, I often had trouble falling asleep. Then I read a review of Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, by Sarah Ban Breathnach. I ordered the book and followed her plan to list five things you are grateful for every day before going to sleep. This easy-to-form habit induces peaceful sleep.

Another book title that made a difference was Thank You for Being Such a Pain: Spiritual Guidance for Dealing with Difficult People. With the suggestions of the book’s author Mark Rosen, I began to see difficult people less as an obstacle and more as an opportunity to change my way of thinking. I began to see “difficult people” in my family, in my work environment, and even in traffic with new eyes.

The third life-changing book title is There Are No Accidents: Synchronicity and Beth's bookthe Stories of Our Lives, by Robert H. Hopcke. Once I started to recognize synchronicity all around me, I was able to pare my loose groupings of adoption stories to those with a common thread of synchronicity. The result was my book Adoption: More Than By Chance, which was published in March of 2015.

Which book titles have influenced your life, and how?
