Finding ways to motivate ourselves to be better people and do better things with our lives is not as complicated as many people might think. Often times when we lack motivation, what we truly lack within ourselves is an outside force whispering in our ear, telling us it’s okay to take risks and go after what we really want out of life.
These audiobooks are exactly what you need if you are in this position. These smart professionals will give you the knowledge, tools and encouragement you will need to get out there and change your life – and in the process, change others’ lives as well.

Success, after all, is a measure of who we are as people and how we behave in the situations that are presented to us, isn’t it? It is our character, not the physical things we possess, that make us successful.
Do you want to be successful? Dare to dream big dreams. Stay passionate. Keep growing. How do you do these things, and more? You will have to download and listen to the audiobook to hear Osteen’s take on success and how to achieve it.
2. The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn
Though your picture of success might feature someone who has invented something no one has ever thought of before, started their own company or launched so many projects and programs they have to hire people in order to keep track of them all, that isn’t what success looks like for everyone.
Jim Rohn will teach you in his audiobook how to be better at the ordinary things in life. You will learn how to develop new skills and how to teach yourself new things on your own time. You don’t have to be good at business or exceptionally creative to do important tings. You just have to be willing to learn and grow under your own direction and discipline.
3. The Power by Rhonda Byrne
We all have dreams. Some of them are so for out there that we are embarrassed to share them with other people. We still wonder, secretly to ourselves, if it is possible. Could we, maybe, achieve that thing we have always dreamed of achieving after all?
If you have ever wondered what it is going to take to live the kind of life you have always wanted to live, up until this point you have been looking in all the wrong places. Rhonda Byrne is here to show you that you can have just about anything you want in your life, as long as you are willing to look deep inside yourself to find the power hidden within.
4. Choose Yourself: Be Happy, Make Millions, Live the Dream by James Altucher
Have you ever been told that you should not pursue your dream because you cannot make a living doing what you want to do? If so, that probably did not make you feel very confident. It’s likely that any motivation you had to keep working hard so you could succeed dimmed, if it did not fade completely into oblivion.
In his audiobook, James Altucher acknowledges that the workforce is changing, and it has become much harder for the average person to make money and live happily and healthfully doing what they want to do. Learn how to be happy, fulfilled and successful by listening to what he has to say. Your motivation isn’t gone: you just need a little push to help bring it back.
5. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
Back in the 1930s, Napoleon interviewed over 500 of America’s most successful men, including three United States presidents, to ask them how they got to where they were then. Even now, people still turn to this book for some of the most credible advice out there for how to make money and be successful.
Hill’s conclusion seems to be that whether or not we will become successful depends on the way we think about the world. If you can change the way you think, you can change the course of your life for the better. This audiobook will help you get motivated to start making changes in your life, even small ones at first.
6. The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Values and Spiritual Growth by M. Scott Peck
Perhaps you are in a place in life in which your work life is fine, your goals are being met and you are on your way to becoming a successful professional, but your relationships are suffering. You and your partner aren’t communicating, or you have lost touch with a friend. Perhaps you have even lost touch with yourself.
This audiobook will help you get started on a journey toward learning how to love again – not just loving other people, but loving yourself as well. It will teach you to pay more attention to the things you want and need and the things you truly care about. If you can identify those, you can identify your barriers to love and knock them down.
