A couple of weeks ago, Ester Dean shared that one of the driving forces behind her success in her belief in the Law of Attraction. The songwriter was exposed to this principle after reading Rhonda Byrnes’ The Secret.

“I get obsessed with what I want. When I read ‘The Secret’ on the law of attraction, I got obsessed,” she revealed during an episode of Madame Noire’s “In This Room.” “I didn’t understand why it was working. And then I’d pass it on to my family and friends and it didn’t work for them. I didn’t understand why not so I started doing more research.”

As it turns out, the “Drop It Low’ singer is an avid reader and she offered us a sneak peek into her life-changing book list.

“This is going to be crazy because I have a lot of books,” shared Dean. “Right now, I’m reading ‘Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life.’

Instead of leafing through traditional paperbound texts, the 37-year-old swipes her way to self-improvement using the Audible app.

“Anytime I pick up my phone, I’ll be going straight back to my books. I have a library,” she explained before going on to list some of her favorites. “‘Your Most Valuable Asset’ by Brian Tracy, ‘Ten Percent Happier,’ by Brian Tracy. Everything about me is Brian Tracy,” she went on. ‘Flight Plan’ by Brian Tracy. You know, when you’re in a place and you don’t know how to get out. It’s the fight or flight. It helps you to strategize on how to get out of the bad part.”

Previously, Dean shared with us that her obsession with knowledge is the key to her success.

“I get obsessed with knowledge. I get obsessed with thoughts of how I can get something that everyone thinks I shouldn’t have,” she confessed.
