Similar to my best finance books list, I’ve been an avid reader of self help books for many years. One might be wondering what does self help have to do with investing and business? Everything! You must constantly feed the mind.
Especially when owning a business, the buck literally stops with you. You are the weakest link within your company. If you aren’t up to the task, then your company will also perform poorly.
If you lack self confidence, you lack the ability to produce. Some days as an entrepreneur you need to get pumped and feel excited when the rest of the world has you down.
Readers: What are some of your personal favorites? Please add it to the comments below.
One of my favorite books on the list. Anthony Robbins goes over every aspect of life so you can excel in human achievement.
Stephen R. Covey
A classic book with timeless habits. A balanced approached to handling life’s daily problems and long term goals.
Not the best book in the list, and some other books on this list in my opinion explain some of Tim’s topics better. However, the book is a good summary, makes you think about business in a different way, and motivates you to take action.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is the classic book that, in my opinion, started the self help craze. A book written over 70 years ago, its principles still apply today.
Getting Things Done or GTD is a popular book in the tech crowd I hang out with. If you are looking for a way to improve your productivity, this is the book for you.
Robert B. Cialdini
A great book! Explains how you can be influenced by the media and your surroundings, and, on the flip side, how you can also help persuade (sell) others. A MUST for any salesperson.
