10 Best Books for Self-Help and Motivation

I have always loved books. I buy them and love to display in my living room.

If space permits, then transforming a shelf into a large library is one of my dreams.

While, life has become a little busy nowadays, I never want to give up on reading. Even today when an opportunity strikes, I prefer to sit with a book than switch on the television or mindlessly surf the internet.

A few days back I was rummaging through my books to find something on self-help or psychology or anything that is motional to read.

And I found that I do have quite a few in my collection. But, then I surveyed online to see what are the new ones in the market. And I feel sheepish to admit, I am quite lagging behind.

After building my list to buy, it got me thinking that I should write on some of the top motivational books of all time and help those who are seeking some suggestions on which book to read and why.

So, below is the list of 10 Best Books for Self-Help and Motivation.

I am not mentioning books in any particular order of preference or popularity.

How to Win Friends and Influence People 

Dale Carnegie

First published in 1936 this book provides great advise on making your business and personal life successful. It is not a one time read and can be consulted from time to time till you begin to imbibe the skills taught by Dale in your daily life. What is interesting is that even after 82 years, this book makes sense and is as updated in the tactics as it can be.

The One Thing

Gary Keller

We all know that focus on one thing is the key to achieving success but we hardly follow this rule. Gary brings in the attention to this age old rule for us and tries to teach how to focus on one goal at a time and not invite distractions from too many goals in life.

Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money that the Poor and Middle Class Do Not

Robert T Kiyosaki

If you wish to understand money deeper and delve into the factors that are leading you to waste money, then this is your best buy. Robert will teach you how to make the most out of the money you got. All our childhood we are taught several things but the one most important thing (Money) we are never taught. Robert directly targets this gap in our teachings and helps to know how to manage money smartly like a rich person does.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Stephen R. Covey

This book is great at providing solutions to almost all life's problems. Whether you face rejection or fail to manage time or cannot take right decisions or find it hard to set a goal in life this book answers it all by narrating the good habits of influential personalities.

Think and Grow Rich

Napoleon Hill

Believe is the first thing that this book teaches. If you do not believe in faith then big things will not come your way. Napoleon brings its readers his 13 rules that will set you in the right path for not just business but whole life.

You Can Win

Shiv Khera

An Indian author's book is the first book I can remember I had when I was a child and saw it in my mom's bookshelf. It still exists. Written in simple way, Shiv gives quotes and practical lessons on life to motivate people to achieve goals.

The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape The 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich

Timothy Ferriss

Timothy makes you reassess the priorities and goals of our life. He brings some interesting chapters on illusion of time, escaping office life, how to pack light during travels, etc.

The Secret

Rhonda Byrne

If you want good tings to happen to you, believe it has already taken place. This is the only way to attract what you want to experience in your life. One of my best purchases till date. The book also has a movie made on its teachings.

The Magic

Rhonda Byrne

Can be treated as part two of the above mentioned book, The Magic provides a training of exactly 28 days in which the author commands you to do certain activities daily and never let you falter from the path of attracting good things.

The Robin Sharma Pack

This is a delight for a fan of Robin Sharma. A 10 Books Pack which contains The Secret Letters, The Monk who Sold his Ferrari, Who Will Cry When You Die, and many more.

So, these were my top 10 motivational reads. And, they did make an impact in my life.
