These three books remind me of when you know for sure you hold the master key to your life and in that moment you also realize there are no coincidence and your own words start to become so powerful they change your life for the better and even the world.

Three of my all time favorite books!
This was the very first “self-help” book I read just out of college and it changed my life forever because it taught me how to create magic in my life by thinking big. “Believe Big,” says Schwartz, author of The Magic of Thinking Big. “The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too! Big ideas and big plans are often easier — certainly no more difficult – than small ideas and small plans.”
I believe this was my first of many Toni Morrison books I’ve read but this is the one that made me a true fan. Milkman Dead was born shortly after a neighborhood eccentric hurled himself off a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight. For the rest of his life he, too, will be trying to fly. With this brilliantly imagined novel, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison transfigures the coming-of-age story as audaciously as Saul Bellow or Gabriel García Márquez. As she follows Milkman from his rustbelt city to the place of his family’s origins, Morrison introduces an entire cast of strivers and seeresses, liars and assassins, the inhabitants of a fully realized black world.
The main character in this book, Emma Harte, had a major influence on me in the beginning of my modeling and fashion career as I was genuinely able to relate to her humble beginnings and thought, if she can make it then so can I. In celebration of its thirtieth anniversary, A Woman of Substance is the novel that started it all: New York Times bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford’s dazzling saga of a woman who dared to dream―and to triumph against all odds. . . . On the brooding moors above a humble Yorkshire village stood Fairley Hall. There, Emma Harte, its oppressed but resourceful servant girl, acquired a shrewd determination. There, she honed her skills, discovered the meaning of treachery, learned to survive, to become a woman, and vowed to make her mark on the world.
