Best Motivational Books
Any idea What is my favourite type of books that I always buy, borrow or beg? (Drum roll…) It is the Motivational Books! I have been reading more than 50 books on self-help, business, time management, mind-set, biography of successful people in various industries like business, sports, artistry, investment and etc for many years. With my vast experience, I am going to introduce 3 of the best motivational books I just read recently, that I find them to be really insightful, influential and impactful.
Like A Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School : This is a book written by the CEO of Virgin Group, Richard Branson. For those of you who have not heard of Virgin Group (I know the name is funny and you might think of something else, but trust me, they do proper business), it is a corporate with more than 500 companies involving in various businesses such as train, mobile phone, airline, space travelling, music, insurance, banking, healthcare and etc. From this motivational book, you can expect more than 100 lessons & advices you can learn from Richard Branson – whether you are interested to start your own business, improving your leadership & sales skill or simply looking for motivation, this book is for YOU. Honestly speaking, Richard Branson has been an charismatic figure and idol to me. Little facts about him are like he started his recording music business at age 16 after dropout from college, he created a lot of values in the world by settling customer-focus and service-based businesses rather than profit-focus, he has been involved in many charity, he is a person who enjoy doing fun things such as extreme sports and etc.
Awaken the Giant Within : How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny : The International bestseller book, by the world motivational master Anthony Robbins who is an expert in science of peak performance, will teach you his strategies and techniques to take full control of your mind, emotion, body, relationship, finance, career and etc. Who is Anthony Robbins? This multi-millionaire was a janitor, high school dropout who managed to change his life by believing in himself. He is the most highly paid motivational guru in the world, with more than millions of people benefited from his teachings. Part 1, which is about “Unleash Your Power” will train you on how to shape your mind to achieve everything you want, while Part 2,3 and 4 are about taking action. I personally would say this is one of the Best motivational books I ever read. It does not only inspire me to take control of my destiny in almost everything, but it impressed me on how much I can achieve within my inner self. Definitely the most inspiring book you MUST keep.
The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything : A masterpiece from the world “25 Most Influential American” rated by Times Magazine, the late Stephen Covey. As an International best seller author, this is a book guiding you how TRUST can influential one’s mind and attitude, which later leads to results and productivity. This is like another extension from his best-selling motivational book <7 Habits of Highly Effective People>. In this book, it teaches us how to establish trust and win with people, from the aspect of relationship to business to career. After reading this, I learnt how I can better influence others by applying “trust”.
I once heard someone quoted “Read a book a day, keep your negativeness away”, but I believe it should be modified to “Read A good book a day, keep your negativeness away”. I would suggest you just take 10-20 minutes each day to read up on all these motivational books, for sure your work performance and productivity on that day will be increased tremendously ! (Bosses should take note hehe)
Let’s be Motivated Every Single Day !
