Books are our best Friends and cutting a bit of social media and giving some of your time to the books will do you nothing wrong. Here are some inspirational picks to make your life better.
1. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
A big part of motivation is clearing your mind of the clutter that weighs it down. Richard Carlson helps you differentiate between what's really important--and deserving of your attention--and what's just "noise in the system."
2. As a Man Thinketh
Motivational books are usually about taking immediate action. By contrast, this 1902 classic by James Allen is a bit more, well, thoughtful. It explains how your thoughts mold your personality, and how that personality drives you to take action and determines the type of action you'll take.
3. Awaken the Giant Within
Anthony Robbins is unlike most motivational writers in two ways. First, he treats training the mind and body as a technological challenge rather than moral imperative. Second, he somehow manages to be both an inspirational role model and the most annoying guy on the planet.
4. Think and Grow Rich
Napoleon Hill interviewed "40 millionaires" to discover the common thought processes and behaviors that had led to their success. His study of these "best practices" was revolutionary in a world where it was largely assumed that great wealth resulted from a combination of greed and luck.
5. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
While he gets a bit preachy sometimes, Stephen Covey's road map for living doesn't just help you develop better habits. It also convinces you that acquiring them will make you a better person.
