Few other things have the power to accelerate our success more than gaining access to all the knowledge contained within the wonderful world of books. By each turn of a page you can literally walk in the footsteps of the best thinkers through history, tapping their minds and get ideas that can literally change your world.
Today, however, there is such a massive abundance of information that the hard thing is finding the right book to invest your time in. Below, to make it simple for you, I have collected links to my personal favorites of all the hundreds of books that I have read. Should give you the best possible start for a personal development library and save you years of searching. Enjoy!
by Michael Neill
Picking this book for this list is a pretty natural choice for me. Having been coached by him for a couple of years I can attest to the fact that he easily lives up to the title of the book. You will find that the ideas he shares will not only transform your own life, but those around you as well. All you have to do is to be willing to keep an open mind and let it be easier than you thought and more fun than you expected…:-)
by Dr. Greg Baer
Out of all the books that I’ve read none contains a more important message than this. Actually, I would go as far as to say that Dr. Baer has such a thorough understanding of human nature and what we really need to feel happy and successful that it should be required reading for all of us. I know it has transformed my life and I’m sure that it will take yours to a higher level too. You owe to yourself to read this book!
What you don’t know can’t hurt you goes the old saying. Well, turns out that what you don’t know can at least keep you from living life to the fullest. In this book you reveals to you quite a few of those things that we should all get told at an early age. Pick up a copy, read it and let it seep into your mind. You’ll be glad that you did…
This is one of those books that will give you insights that will make you go ”ahh, I never thought of it like that”. If you are in business it will make you smile all the way to the bank. If you’re not it will make you feel better on a day to day basis. So, buy it, read it – but above all use the ideas that you get from it…
A fantastic little book that in all simplicity gives you the true ”secret” to living life from a wonderful feeling no matter what is going on around you. Not a small claim by any means but for anyone who can overlook the obvious and see beyond the story it will hold true. Few books cut to the heart of the art of living like this one and it really has changed my view on life. So give yourself a mental treat and read it, and re-read it, as soon as you receive it…
The Five Love Languages
by Gary Chapman
This coaching letter is all about creating whatever you think is success for you. Now, in my experience true success always involves other people, be it romantically or otherwise. This book is definitely in my personal top-3 relationship books (the other two that actually should be read before this are: Real Love and The relationship Handbook) Anyway, this book will give you the foundation for how to communicate with your loved ones in a way that reaches their hearts (tip: it will work equally well on any other Homo Sapiens;-)
by Garrett Kramer
I had no idea that there were someone else coaching athletes in the much the same way as I until I read this book. Michael Neill recommended it to me and you will see why when you read it. Insights into bringing out your best self is jumping out from every page. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re an athlete, a parent, a CEO – if you’re looking for a book that really gives you insights that can change your entire outlook on life, then this is it.
About my suggested reading
Paradoxically, the biggest problem of our time is that we have too much information. The amount of data is doubling every 4 years and it’s published in books, on the internet, magazines etc. In the current abundance of information the hardest thing is to sort through it and get to the golden nuggets wisdom.
My wish for you as a visitor to this page is that you’ll find those literary nuggets and get right to the heart of authentic success in life. Naturally, I have plenty of favorites in other genres as well.
However, I make the assumption that you, as a visitor to this site, are mainly interested in how to get the best out of life. So dig in, and relish the thought that on any of the pages of these books you might find an idea that you that spurs you on to the next level…
Can’t get much easier than this!
Thanks to a collaboration with Amazon you can just click on the book you’re interested in and you will be redirected to its page on amazon.co.uk. There, you can read more about it and choose to buy it if you feel it’s right for you.
Naturally, you can also steer your steps to the nearest library and borrow it. Either way, the most important part is reading it, because the book you don’t read can’t help you.
