Book: "The Back Door Guide to Short-Term Job Adventures: Internships, Summer Jobs, Seasonal Work, Volunteer Vacations, and Transitions Abroad"
by Michael Landes
Opened my eyes to the MANY MANY opportunities available to me and others out in the world! Introduced me to the idea of OMEGA (the nation's premier center for holistic studies)
The book also encouraged volunteering on organic farms, which I tried in the UK (experiences which changed my life!). World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms

Book: "Happiness Is a Choice"
by Barry Neil Kaufman
Barry Kaufman showed me (through his experience with his autistic son) that each day each person can make choices to create a beautiful balanced life. He showed me to revel in the the best each person is able to provide.

He created the Option Institute to help others:

"The Option Institute is the worldwide teaching center for The Option Process®, offering empowering personal growth programs, retreats and seminars using life-changing, experiential training techniques that can dramatically improve your confidence, self esteem, health and show you ways to create more happiness in your life."

Book: "Thinking In Pictures : and Other Reports from My Life with Autism"
by Temple Grandin
Helped me to better understand not only how I think, but how certain individuals with autism perceive the world.

Book: "The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide" by Douglas Adams
Made me laugh so hard out loud!! Gotta love British sardonic humor ;)

Movie: "Educating Rita" with Michael Caine and Julie Walters show a dramatic relationship between a student and teacher. They show how a student can change a teacher just as a teacher can dramatically change a student.

Movie: "Lean on Me" VERY inspirational. How to make schools WORK!

Book: "7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens" by Franklin Sean Covey Simple ways to organize one's thoughts, ideas and goals. Great for people of all ages!

Book: "The Seat of the Soul" by Gary Zukav helped me see where my center was and see that other people shared it with me.

Book: "Wisdom of the Ages: 60 Days to Enlightenment" as and "The Power of Intention" by Wayne Dyer
