Everyone needs a little inspiration from time to time! Even if we are normally fairly optimistic and excited about the future, sometimes we just need a little boost to help us keep moving towards our goals. What better way to inspire yourself than by reading the words of people who have been where you are and made it where you want to go? Let’s take a look at some of our favorite motivational books that we think will give you some additional motivation.
1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Maybe you feel as though it’s time to make a change, but aren’t sure where to begin. Written by Stephen Covey and first published in 1989, is a fantastic book that will help you understand not only why and how you should go about altering your habits and life perspective, but also does a great job of convincing you that you’re making the best choice possible in doing so.
2. The Power of Positive Thinking
When it comes to every day life, a positive outlook can do wonders for your health and overall happiness. This is the premise of Norman Vincent Peale’s book, and it is a wonderful resource if you are struggling with negative thoughts that you think might be impeding your progress.
Written by Daniel Pink, this book takes a look at the most effective forms of motivation and finds that the strongest motivation is derived from our own desires and passion for life. It is out of this drive to succeed and be better that we can see truly life-changing inspiration and motivation.
4. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
How many worries and concerns are swirling around your mind at any given moment? Probably too many. Author Richard Carlson works to help you understand what is truly important and what is just needless “noise”.
5. The Greatest Salesman in the World
You might think you’re not a salesperson, but let’s take a moment and be honest: aren’t we promoting our own skills every day in the hopes that we get better business? Og Mandino helps you better understand how to live life, be happy, and never sell yourself short.
