If you have favorites not on the list feel free to comment and give me additional tips!

This list is in no particular order.

Wallace Wattles – The Science of Getting Rich 

Describes willpower, skill mastery, and success in an easy way. Step by step on how to get rich.

Man becomes rich because of cooperation and not competition.

Rhonda Byrne cited it as a major inspiration for her #1 bestseller, The Secret. (more on that book later)

“The desire for riches is simply the capacity for larger life seeking fulfillment; every desire is the effort of an unexpressed possibility to come into action.”
— Wallace Wattles

 Dale Carnegie – How to Win Friends and Influence People

How to Win Friends and Influence People is the comprehensive guide to coming across as friendly, personable, and warm.

The title is a little misleading, as it won’t teach you to make lifelong friends, or make you an “influencer.”

What it does teach is making excellent first impressions and striking up meaningful conversations with strangers, old pals, and potential customers alike.

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”— Dale Carnegie

Robert Kiyosaki – Rich Dad Poor Dad

Kiyosaki explained the same financial lessons that consistently wealthy families pass down through the generations (that the mass public has no clue about).

Many people have come out and disputed some of Kiyosaki’s points over the years, but hey, there’s a reason he’s a success and most of his critics are not.

You’re guaranteed to think differently about assets and liabilities once you’ve read it.

“In school, we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.”
— Robert Kiyosaki

Rhonda Byrne – The Secret 

This is an easier to read book then all the oldies. Not so academic.

It focuses on positive thinking and visualization.

There are more books in the series as well like The Magic,The Power and The Hero. Read them all! 

“There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. Every single circumstance of your life can change!”
— Rhonda Byrne

Robin Sharma - The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

This one is different from the others since it is written like a story. It maybe makes it easier to read. It's a story about fulfilling your dreams and reaching your destiny.

That how successful you are doesn't matter if you aren't taking care of yourself and fulfilling your dreams.

The monk is telling his story on how he changed his entire life from being a well-known successful lawyer to living a more healthy and happy life.

You can't be great if you don't feel great. Make exceptional health your #1 priority - Robin Sharma

James Allen - As a Man Thinketh

I've been told that this is the original self-help book. It was among the first books to talk about that we can change our life by changing how we think. 

Everyone has full responsibility over their life and circumstances. 

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7

Jeffery Combs - The Procrastination Cure

20 percent of people admit to being procrastinators and an untold number never admit to it at all. 

Procrastination is an epidemic that can only be eliminated if the underlying causes are uncovered. Yet there’s very little understanding of how to let go of procrastination, how to recognize and diffuse the feelings that lead to it, and most importantly, how to develop the ability to both produce and relax without guilt.

Norman Vincent Peale - The Power Of Positive Thinking

Written with the sole objective of helping the reader achieve a happy, satisfying, and worthwhile life,” Dr. Peale demonstrates the power of faith in action. With the practical techniques outlined in this book, you can energize your life—and give yourself the initiative needed to carry out your ambitions and hopes. You’ll learn how to:

· Believe in yourself and in everything you do
· Build new power and determination
· Develop the power to reach your goals
· Break the worry habit and achieve a relaxed life
· Improve your personal and professional relationships
· Assume control over your circumstances
· Be kind to yourself

But nothing will happen if you don't take ACTION!

You have a couple of books to get ideas from but you need to implement for anything to happen. 

Just reading won't get you anywhere so read a lot, find what resonates with you and implement that into your life. 

That is how you will succeed in both your business and in your personal life.

Be happy, kind and have fun. Life is to short for anything else
