I love reading books that inspire us to become more than who we are; and so far, I have come across some of the best motivational books you wouldn’t want to miss. These are some of my reviews of the most inspirational books out there.
The Best Motivational Book: The Secret
On the top of my list is The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. It is basically the book version of the world-renowned film of the same title, and it's a wonderful accompaniment to life.
What could be more motivating than a book that teaches you how to achieve everything that you’ve ever wanted to accomplish - whatever that may be - using the law of attraction? This is a book that says nothing is impossible and more importantly, makes you believe it.
The Second Best Motivational Book: The Alchemist
The most inspirational books aren’t always self-help in nature. Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist is a must on every person’s shelf.
The story is of a young shepherd boy named Santiago who goes on an exciting adventure to reach his dreams. The book is riddled with philosophies and talks about the importance of understanding your personal legend.
The Third Best Motivational Book: The Happiness Project
This book’s real title is The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun. Written by Gretchen Rubin, this is possibly one of the easiest and fun reads in the list.
While it is indeed one of the most inspiring books I’ve come across recently, it is never preachy as some books often become. Reading Rubin’s work is like reading the adventures of a good friend - funny, down-to-earth and downright inspiring.
The Fourth Best Motivational Book: Winning
One of the greatest books when it comes to management is Jack Welch’s Winning. Hype can sometimes make a book seem more successful than it really is, but Winning (co-written by wife Suzy Welch) is truly deserving of all its accolades.
In this book, the inspirational CEO talks about making the work environment more positive and how to be the best person you can be at work, among others. Packed with a lot of lessons in management, this book is worth every cent you pay.
The Fifth Best Motivational Book: Your Best Life Now
And finally, let me present to you Your Best Life Now. Joel Osteen is a pastor, but even if you’re not Christian, his book is a wonderful source of good advice and motivational tips. His book is simple and would be a wonderful companion to just about anybody.
When it comes to the best motivational books, everyone has an opinion. These are the books that made it to my list and I’m sure that you have your own set, too. I hope that these can help you live a better life.
