There are so many books on self-improvement to choose from. But which one/s should you go for? Well, to help with your research, here’s a list that, in our humble opinion, should be on everyone’s must-read list…
1. Keep It Simple – by Joe Calloway
Keep it Simple didn’t win the Forbes Best Business Book by chance. It won it because it shows you a stand out way to take control of your life and your goals. Discover what’s truly important to you (both in your professional and personal life), so giving you the ability to streamline everything about your life. This has the effect of reducing stress, whilst allowing you to truly work towards the goals that mean the most to you.
Calloway is an expert on all things performance, both in the workplace and in your day-to-day life. In his words, ‘When you make things simple, you can move mountains’.
2. Finding Your Own North Star – by Martha Beck
We have to say, Finding Your Own North Star is, without a shadow of a doubt, an awesome self-help book. Your life is unique, and the journey you follow is also one of a kind. However, Beck assures us that major transformations in life have common elements. And it’s these elements that make it possible for a doctor such as Beck to be able to provide us with an amazing guide to become a better, happier, more successful person. And by success, she means whatever you personally assign to the word…
Highly readable, with a simple to follow step-by-step system to success, you can easily tread the path to fulfil your potential, and lead the contented life you truly deserve.
3. The Energy Bus – by Jon Gordon
The Energy Bus is as straightforward as it is effective. Discover 10 simple secrets that show you how to approach life in a way that’s probably never occurred to you before. But when you read about them, you’ll wonder how on earth you’ve got by without knowing them.
Jon Gordon’s bestseller takes you on a rollercoaster ride as he shows you how exactly to achieve your goals, and become a better you than you probably thought was possible. And it’s a really entertaining read as well – making this one of our favorite books on this list.
4. The Self Improvement Journey – by Ryan Dieudonne
Ryan Diuedonne is an expert in the field of self-improvement. And the bestselling, The Self Improvement Journey cuts to the core of why many of us never achieve our goals. And, he says, it’s not because you’re not capable. It’s simply because the desire isn’t there.
In other words, change yourself, and you change your outcomes. Not only does the book cover the generalities of becoming a better you, but it also delves deep into such subjects as procrastination, addictions, weight loss, time management, positive thinking, overcoming fear – and much, much more.
5. Achieve Anything In Just One Year – by Jason Harvey
Harvey’s, Achieve Anything In Just One Year, shouldn’t be taken as a literal promise. But what it does provide is 365 amazing actionable suggestions that will change you way of thinking, and get you truly fired up to work towards your goals and live your dreams.
After all, we all know deep down that the only thing stopping us doing what we truly want to is that little voice inside your head that says you can’t. But as Harvey encourages you onwards, you’ll change your mindset into one that realizes that you actually CAN. So if you want to change your dreams into reality, then this really is the book for you.
6. The Last Arrow – by Erwin Raphael McManus
A slightly different kind of self help book, The Last Arrow is all about the roadmap to your life – a life that’s unique, and that you want to, at the end of it, look back and smile with the thought that you lived it to the very best of your ability.
McManus gives us the analogy that we begin life with a quiver full of arrows. And how we use them is up to us. It’s all about a combination of risk and safety, and learning when is the best time for both.
A truly powerful read…
