Ten books that help us to live

Postby Victoria1280 » Thu Feb 18, 2016 6:51 pm

I want to talk about the books that have helped me. Maybe they will help you too. We can discuss them or talk about the books that have helped you.


Brian Tracy
Create Your Own Future: How to Master the 12 Critical Factors of Unlimited Success

The author of this book knows about the success very much. He writes about success, he lectures about success, he meets with successful people. Finally, he is a very successful person himself. Meanwhile, he was not always successful. He marched his way to success and proved that anyone can learn it. We teach foreign languages, we learn to drive a car, in childhood we learn to walk. Similarly, we can learn to be successful.

Napoleon Hill
Think & Grow Rich

I think this author and this book is well known. On the other hand, it is impossible not to mention them. Napoleon Hill studied the biographies of rich people for many years. He discovered the laws of wealth. But his books tell not only about wealth. His books tell us about life. Our thoughts have great power. Our imagination has a great power. We has tremendous power. And we can use that power every day.

Sheila Dainow
Be Your Own Counsellor: A Step-By-Step Guide to Understanding Yourself

The scientific studies have proven that people who used this book, got the same results as people who visited a psychotherapist. Don't you believe? Then you just need to try. The book describes very useful exercises that psychoanalysts and other professionals often offer their patients. The uniqueness of this book is that you can read it from any Chapter. If you need psychological help, read this book.

Susan Jeffers
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

This book honestly and frankly tell you about the fear. We are afraid to live and afraid to die, we are afraid to win and afraid to lose, we are afraid to start and afraid to finish.

In addition, the author talks about the unique practical recommendations for changing our life. Try to change your life, this book will help you with this.

Bill Newman

You will find many inspiring examples and many practical exercises. On the pages of this book there is a programme of changes designed specially for you. Open the first page. Changes begin!

Win Wenger

Sometimes we hesitate to ask about something. Sometimes we don't ask about something very important. Sometimes it is a very big mistake. Have you ever compared himself to geniuses? This book will help you do that. Sometimes it is very useful. After all, if we have small target we can't achieve great success.

Paul R. Scheele
Natural Brilliance

Each person is unique. Every person has unique talents. Every person can and should strive for self-realization. Our problem is not that we have no abilities, but we do not use them. Read this book to become more unique.

Edward de Bono

Do you want to start a new life? In this case, you should learn to think in a new way. Our thoughts are the Foundation of our life. Change your Foundation and you will change your life. Look at any problem from different points of view. Put off one thinking hat and put on another thinking hat. It's very exciting!

Pretty much any of the main religious texts are full of great advice that help us in life. The wisdom in these texts was cultivated over thousands of years, passed along generation after generation and eventually put into writing. Of thousands if not tens of thousands of scrolls, the most useful stories, proverbs, etc. were consolidated.

This is not to say that every piece of information is a gem, but neither is it in any other book. Whether Brian Tracy or Napoleon Hill, they too miss the mark sometimes. Besides, much of what is offered today is often times founded in these older texts, simply repackaged for modern times.

I just finished the essays of Francis Bacon, offering up useful advice on everything from relationships to gardens. Here is a guy that is an idolized philosopher by many, and he too offers up some less than great advice sometimes. Point being, don't discount the usefulness of some of the earliest and most prolific works in the history of mankind.

I completely agree with you. Religious and philosophical texts help us to live too. But I wanted to tell about modern psychological texts here.

The Richest Man in Babylon

Great book that helps keep things in perspective. Especially good if you are wanting a quick read on finance and preservation and acquisition of wealth, both material and other.

Good Profit

Another great book about helping others, by creating mutual value. The underlying concept is called "Principled Entrepreneurship."

http://www.amazon.com/Good-Profit-Creat ... B00TWEMGE8

And;

Human Action

by Ludwig vonMises. It really explains a theory of human action that is simple to grasp and easy to apply.

Thank you for these recommendations!

Recently I read the book on Money:Master the Game by Tony Robbins.

I think this would be a good addition as well!

You are right. In the beginning of the book the author writes that success is guaranteed. It is inspiring.
