I’m a real sucker for a good self-help book. I always feel drawn to books that revolve around self-improvement or that help me in enhancing my life in some way. I’ve read a lot of these types of books lately and they’ve all been beneficial to me in many ways.
There are several books that I find myself always recommending to others (because they’re that good) and I wanted to share those with you too. Most of these books had me enthralled within the first few pages and I constantly refer back to them in my day-to-day life, as well as in my business.
The books that I’m sharing with you today are the kind of books that expanded my mind, heart and soul, and some of them totally changed my mindset about things like happiness and money. I can honestly say that they have been life changing.
So I hope that you’ll give some of these a try, I know you will love them!
Here are my top 8 recommended books to enhance your life:
- “Get Rich, Lucky Bitch!” by Denise Duffield Thomas
This book is an absolute must read for anyone struggling with money blocks. It focuses on helping you release any money blocks you may have and live a first class life. Denise has a great sense of humour, she tells it like it is and really gets you to dive in deep into your personal money drama that you’ve most likely been carrying your whole life. She demonstrates how most of us are programmed to block money from coming to us and helps in clearing those blocks through exercises and mental “sweeps”.
- “Money, A Love Story” by Kate Northrup
This is another one about building a better relationship with money. Kate gives clear, grounded advice on how to feel empowered about your finances and your self worth. She does this with love and compassion. This book was eye opening and might be just what you need to help you get back on track with your financial goals.
- “May Cause Miracles” by Gabrielle Bernstein
This is a 40-day guidebook of subtle shifts for radical change in your life. In this book, Gabrielle leads you through consistent small daily actions to improve your relationships, finances, bodies and self-image. It’s a spiritual guide for releasing fear and allowing gratitude, forgiveness and love to flow through us.
- “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin
This is a simple, straightforward guide on how to find more happiness in your daily life by looking at things from a new perspective. Everything Gretchen talks about is realistic, achievable and easy to implement. Anyone can easily follow her advice and find more happiness by changing their mindset and being open minded to seeing things in a new way.
- “How To Succeed In Anything By Really Trying” by Lyman Macinnis
This book advises on topics from networking, leadership, conflict resolution, negotiation, to never embarrassing yourself when addressing a crowd, and even how to give and take advice. It really is a wonder of common sense and a wealth of simple knowledge. I strongly believe that every human being should read this book.
- “How To Win Friends And Influence People” by Dale Carnegie
I don’t mean to sound like an ad, but this book was released in 1936 and has sold over 15 million copies! Doesn’t that say enough already? It is packed with rock-solid advice that has carried thousands of now famous people up the ladder of success in their business and personal lives. Give it a read, I’m sure you won’t regret it.
- “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki
Another one of my favourites about personal finance and success. This book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you. It taught me to never again say to myself “I can’t afford this”, but instead “How can I afford this?” It’s truly mind blowing.
- “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill
This is another oldie but goodie. It breaks down all principles and steps to achieve success in a concise manner. It was originally published in 1937 and Napoleon Hill draws on the stories of some of the most successful millionaires to illustrate his principles.
