Sign up for this free service that will send you a text every morning -- full of uplifting gifs, quotes, and articles. The website describes the service as “a daily text to help you slay the day.” One of our co-founders has been using it for a few weeks now and swears by it.

Mindset, by Carol Dweck:

Full of great psychological research, this book will help you reconsider the way you think about achievement and success. The book helps to reinforce the idea that greatness isn’t necessarily about natural talent, but about having the right attitude.

Accomplishment Journaling:

At the end of each week, before you plan the week ahead, write down at least 10 things you’ve accomplished, either personally or professionally. For example, “Reconnected with an old friend over coffee,” “Led first strategy meeting and received positive feedback,” or “Increased client base by 5%.” Honestly, anything you are proud of is fair game. Keeping track of your accomplishments will help energize you for the week ahead, and the career related accomplishments could be used for updating your resume or for performance review time.
