1. AS A MAN THINKETH by JAMES ALLEN
James Allen was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. His best-known work, As a Man Thinketh, has been mass-produced since its publication in 1903.
This is a very thin and easy to read book. This is one of the best books to start your reading journey. Many points from Bhagavad Gita and Quran are derived in this book. This book will help you gain a range of different points of view to look into any situation.
The main crux of the matter of this book is “Purity of mind leads certainty to the purity of life”.
2. WHAT GOT YOU HERE, WON’T GET YOU THERE by MARSHALL GOLDSMITH
The only thing I don’t think people don’t understand about good leaders is that they’re both good and lucky. A lot of it is timing.
The meaning of the title of the book in layman’s terms is ‘The work that has led you here won’t take you further’. If you want to go forward and achieve greatness in your life then you must do something different, something you haven’t done before. You have to improve yourself. This is the main theme of this book.
This book is “New York Times”, “Wall Street Journal” and “Amazon’s” best- selling book.
3. THINKING FAST AND SLOW by DANIEL KAHNEMAN
Daniel Kahneman is an Israeli psychologist and economist notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making, as well as behavioral economics, for which he was awarded the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences.
This book is based on two friends. How the thinking of one friend impacts another friend. Their different perspective on a similar situation. This book is full of practical examples in fact this is one of the most practical books I ever read.
My personal favorite chapter from this book is “Two selves” which is about two sides of a person’s so-called alter ego. This book will surely bless your thoughts with wisdom. This book is the best selling self-help books of all time.
4. THE POWER OF HABITS by CHARLES DUHIGS
Charles Duhigg is a Pulitzer-prize winning American journalist and non-fiction author. He was a reporter for The New York Times and is the author of two books on habits and productivity, titled The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business and Smarter Faster Better.
This book is one of my favorites. The best chapter of this book is “The habit of an individual” followed by “The habit of society”. The author has explained the different aspects of neurology. And the most interesting part about this book is there are dedicated 100 pages for How to bring the ideas to reality. How to implement those ideas in a different scenario.
This book not only gives you ideas but also tells you how to execute those. Everyone knows someone who was out of shape, or was a smoker, and then in what appeared as if almost overnight, changed themselves in a short period of time. How did they do that? They formed new habits and changed old ones, that’s how.
5. THINK AND GROW RICH by NAPOLEON HILL
Oliver Napoleon Hill was an American self-help author. He is known best for his book Think and Grow Rich which is among the 10 best-selling self-help books of all time. Hill’s works insisted that fervid expectations are essential to improving one’s life.
The best part of this book says: “Don’t visualize your success, rather visualize something else”. What to visualize and what not is well interpreted in this book. Every line of this book is important.
One suggestion: But the original version of this book, not the translated one. It will generate misconceptions.
So stop dreaming and start executing and visualize the act of departing politely.
6. LIFE CHANGERS: DREAMERS AND DOERS by ROBERT H. SCHULLER
Robert Harold Schuller was an American Christian televangelist, pastor, motivational speaker, and author. In his five decades of television, Schuller was principally known for the weekly Hour of Power television program, which he began hosting in 1970 until his retirement in 2010.
Read the above quote again you will get my purpose to suggest this book. This book has many short stories about many places, many peoples, many personalities. Some inspiring stories that will give you a practical approach to any situation. One such story from this book is –
“He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to getaway. “Well,” the trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.”
