Self-directed study is an essential—and relatively inexpensive—path to personal and professional development learning. These are some of Miranda’s favorite books that align with Thrive Potential’s mission to empower personal potential, develop professional success, and enjoy life.
Re-Writing Our Stories
At some point in our lives, stories became our enemy. We use them to avoid opportunities and undermine our success. When we re-write our internal narrative to one of empowerment, we can reframe our fears and assumptions to open ourselves up to possibility. Consider how you may be getting in your own way. And then move over.
The fortunate among us chart careers based on what we predict will make us happy. We use that metric to make countless decisions-- only to end up less happy than we imagined, wondering if it’s possible to achieve and sustain joy at work.

This #coaching and #sponsorship program is an example of what can happen when vision, thought, and commitment come together! I'm thrilled to help build @DellTech's leadership diversity--and to work with so many women who are already great leaders! https://t.co/jJq7LiewsQ
Underrepresented voices become louder through preparation, collaboration, positivity, and confidence. #diversity #womenleaders #communication
Watching my son--who is built like a linebacker--transform himself into a cross country runner has made me so proud. But the tears came when he chased down one of the few competitors that finished after him--to shake his hand and congratulate him on his finish. #empathy #proudmom
