“Reading is dreaming with open eyes,” quoted Anissa Trisdianty. At some point in our lives, we get stuck in the chatter and clatter of everyday living. But, once you get off the crazy train and really begin to examine your life, you find that you’ve been running on this treadmill called life – going faster and faster, yet never getting anywhere. At this point, you need a dollop of inspiration to get you back on track and even help you change direction, if that’s what you want to do. These self-help books provide just the right dosage of motivation to get you on the right path to success and happiness.
3 Best Self Help books to read in 2020
# 1 BIG MAGIC BY ELIZABETH GILBERT
Big Magic is both a template for personal development and a memoir. It is a motley mix of things that Elizabeth discovers during the writing and creative process.
It is also speckled with anecdotal insights that she learns from others. She shares some of her most personal experiences with writing, creativity and magic. The book is as entertaining and inspiring as it is light-hearted and humble.
I would recommend this book to anyone, even those who feel they lack creativity. Read and discover how ideas float about in the world, seeking just the right person.
#2. YOU ARE A BADASS BY JEN SINCERO
Sassy and unapologetic, the book is broken up into five parts. After laying out some insights for introspection, particularly how we got to being the way we are, she then gets into the lessons. When it comes to taking actionable steps, she says that done is better than perfect.
She touches upon topics like self-worth, doing instead of thinking, decision-making and meditation. Sincero then rounds up the book by writing about money and detailing how to manifest it.
Funny with a liberal smattering of raunch, Sincero’s book is filled with pin-worthy quotes and to-do lists that tell you what steps to take to make changes in your life.
#3 WHEN : THE SCIENTIFIC SECRETS OF PERFECT TIMING BY DANIEL H. PINK
The author asserts that being at the right place at the right time isn’t luck. It’s science! Theoretical but practical as well, the book tells us which time of day is good for decision-making.
A ‘Time Hacker Handbook’ accompanies each chapter. This helps you make everyday decisions : when to work out, change jobs, get married or study.
He opines that a better understanding of this science of timing, helps us live healthier and more fulfilling lives.
