Books

Have you ever read a book that changed your entire perspective forever? A book that has stayed with you ever since and that, every time you remember it, makes that powerful feeling come alive again? You’ve experienced what might be the biggest benefit of reading, a lasting perspective shift that altered the course of your life forever

The human experience is a mysterious and ever-evolving enigma that everyone struggles to understand at some point in their life. Authors like Viktor Frankl and Esmerelda Santiago have done an excellent job of capturing the human experience in their written works, having created tomes that reach deep into the heart and minds of their readers.

Reading other people’s stories can actually help us understand that the goal is not to live like someone else. The goal is to be 100 percent yourself and create your own path.

  1. The Alchemist

The Alchemist is a classic novel in which a boy named Santiago embarks on a journey seeking treasure in the Egyptian pyramids after having a recurring dream about it on the way meets mentors, falls in love, and most importantly, learns the true importance of who he is and how to improve himself and focus on what really matters in life.

This book speaks to your curiosity on every page, yet somehow never makes you feel overwhelmed. It’s nearly impossible to put down, but thankfully, it’s also short, and you’ll probably read it in just a few sittings

  1. Ikigai

The Little Book of Ikigai will show you how to live a long, healthy, and happy life by revealing the five pillars of ikigai, the Japanese concept already helping millions every day find reasons to get out of bed in the morning.

The Ikigai book helps you become more positive from within. It motivates you to feel at peace with yourself and your life. It enables you to focus on your peace of mind and will to live. Positivity comes from within once you have your purpose in your sights, a healthy lifestyle, and the correct perspective

  1. Man’s Search for Meaning

Man’s Search for Meaning details holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl’s horrifying experiences in Nazi concentration camps, along with his psychological approach of logotherapy, which is also what helped him survive and shows you how you can, and must, find meaning in your life.

For most of us, the horrors of war, let alone concentration camps, are so far away as to be unimaginable. This book will not only offer a healthy dose of humility by sharing some of those experiences, which Frankl personally went through but also add real, research-based insight into how they might shape one’s life.

  1. The Art Of War

Much of the content in “The Art of War” is dedicated to advising how to pick the right time and place for your conflict to occur (it really needs to occur at all). Sun Tzu’s teachings can be applied to one’s personal battles by helping us appreciate that self-improvement isn’t just a matter of sheer willpower.

  1. Atomic Habits

Atomic Habits is the definitive guide to breaking bad behaviors and adopting good ones in four steps, showing you how small, incremental, everyday routines compound into massive, positive change over time.

This is the only book about habits you’ll ever have to read. Closing in on ten million copies sold in just four years is the perfect blueprint for learning how to change any behavior, improve yourself a little every day, and let the positive results compound over time.

  1. How To Win Friends And Influence People

How To Win Friends And Influence People teaches you countless principles to become a likable person, handle your relationships well, win others over, and help them change their behavior without being intrusive.

Life is easier when people like you. A friendly tone, good manners, and light compliments are the oil in the social machine, making our interactions with others smooth and efficient, especially the ones we don’t know that well or even at all.

  1. Mindset

Mindset explains the difference between having a fixed and a growth mindset, why one trumps the other, and what you can do to adopt the right one.

Research shows that mindsets play a significant role in determining life’s outcomes. By understanding, adapting, and shifting your mindset, you can improve your health, decrease your stress and become more resilient to life’s challenges.

  1. Rich Dad Poor Dad

Rich Dad Poor Dad tells the story of a boy with two fathers, one rich, and one poor, to help you develop the mindset and financial knowledge you need to build a life of wealth and freedom. Humans learn through stories more so than instructions. This book has both. The story in the first half of the book really drives home everything you need to know about managing your finances well.

  1. How Successful People Think

Good thinkers are always in demand. A person who knows how may always have a job, but the person who knows why will always be his boss. Good thinkers solve problems, they never lack ideas for building an organization, and they always have hope for a better future.

  1. Think And Grow Big

Think and Grow Rich teaches us to train and program our subconscious mind to achieve our goals and ambitions. To follow a dream, there must be a passion inside you. The passion to do something and achieve something. This is a kind of guide to success that everyone must read at once.
