1. You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

The mentality I’ve created with this book surpassed my expectations when I was originally recommended this book by a friend.

You Are A Badass isn’t like most self-help/personal development books.

You are constantly on an adventure throughout and realizing so many things about yourself.

The amount of power that is within all of us is quite spectacular, yet many of us don’t use it.

2. The Art of Happiness by Howard Culter and the Dalai Lama

Although the Dalai Lama suffered the loss of his country, he still remains one of the happiest people alive.

This Dalai Lama taught me that “the very motion of our life is towards happiness” and how happiness should be our main focus and priority in life.

In The Art of Happiness, you’ll discover how to beat anxiety, jealousy, bad moods, and how to ride through the difficult obstacles that life throws at us.

Not only does this book speak on behalf of the Buddhism traditions and meditations, the Dalai Lama also speaks in depth on science to prove how certain methods work.

3. Embrace by Taryn Brumfitt

In Embrace, Taryn speaks thoroughly about her hate-love relationship with her body and how she has learned to embrace and love her body, at every single stage it is.

I believe we can all benefit from this book, especially if you have problems with confidence and dealing with physical appearance.


4. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been top rated for over 25 years and has remained a best seller because of its simplicity towards proven principles of life.

This edition is an updated version, which means you will get an even better idea of how to solve your problems in your personal and professional life.

This book has a basis of positive thinking (such as The Art of Happiness) and can change your entire life based on your way of thinking.

The book talks in depth about how positive thinking can create stronger happiness, wealth and health benefits.
