All of the biggest household names (whether in the world of business, entertainment, or politics) have one pivotal thing in common: a success mindset.
…And as much as the world wants to believe that this kind of mindset is something you’re born with and not something you can curate, we beg to differ. And so do these five books.
Check ‘em out:
- How to Stop Worrying and Start Living - Dale Carnegie
Most of us know that worry ultimately does nothing to influence the outcome of whatever it is we happen to be worried about. Despite knowing this, however, we continue to do it. That’s because our brains are wired to protect us from danger at all costs...and as much as that may have helped us in the days of scavenging for food and fighting off tigers, it doesn’t do much for us in this modern age. How to Stop Worrying and Start Living not only provides the reader with instructions on how to analyze your deepest fears, but offers 7 ways to cope with these fears and, instead, cultivate a life of peace and happiness. We would say this is a must read for all men getting started in their career, but this is honestly a must read for just about anyone.
- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
This might just be the self-help book of all self-help books. With over 15 million copies sold worldwide, Think and Grow Rich (published back in 1937), uses antidotes from the lives of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and other world renowned business icons to demonstrate the philosophy he spent decades of his life formulating: the “Law of Success.” If you’re looking to step up your business game and get that bag, this book deserves a top spot on your reading list.
- The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
The magic is in the mind. A groundbreaking piece of literature in its own right, The Secret promises to give you just that: the secret to finding success in all areas of your life that matter – finances, relationships, health, the whole shebang. If you’re looking to see true transformation in the way you perceive yourself and your goals, this book is the way to go.
- How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Yup, another Dale Canegie pick. What can we say? We couldn’t resist! How to Win Friends and Influence People includes a plethora of valuable tools that will give you the upperhand in any situation you find yourself in, including “Six ways to make people like you,” “Nine ways to change people without arousing resentment,” and tons more. All-in-all, another game-changing addition to your reading list.
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
We all know the drill: change your habits, change your life. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, also with over 15 million copies sold, approaches the skill of problem-solving from a holistic, highly-integrated, and all-encompassing perspective. Although this is a relatively straight-forward read, this is not a book you’re going to want to skim. If you’re hoping to see palpable change in your personal and professional life, grab a highlighter, take some notes, and really let it sink in.
Well, there you have it. Your Amazon shopping cart awaits…
