“ She draped her velvet hair around my Neck, her breath as deep as the pacific, her eyes as blue as the ..”
Feel the hair around your neck ? The deep breath and the blue eyes ? This is the magic of reading, it opens your otherwise shut imaginative self. It transports you to distant worlds, makes you cry, makes you laugh and if it’s any of the book that I mention here, make you think and improve your life.
I have read all the books mentioned and they have had more profound positive effect on my life than all the blog posts I have read combined. They contain within them decades of knowledge and are very worth the time you would invest in them.
1. The Power of your Subconscious Mind — Joseph Murphy
This was the first book that I ever bought using my own money (and my friends), and this was the book that had the most impact on me.
There are powers that are beyond human comprehension, that are beyond rational thought and scientific formulas, and those which can be mended to our wishes. It’s like having a personal Genie.
The book outlines and gives in-depth case studies of how to use the law of attraction to attract to yourself the things that you love and want in life. It also sheds light on the reason that why some men are successful and most others mediocre.
If you don’t read any of the books down below, Read this one. It’s so powerful and not filled with hocus pocus magic, but real working solutions that are guaranteed to change your life.
2. How to Win Friends and Influence People — Dale Carnegie
Admit it Humans are egoistical, self-centered and rude mammals. We don’t care about anyone but us, we don’t take into consideration of anyone but us (parents are an exception . Thanks Mom and Dad).
We as social being come into contact with people everyday, we talk, we play the pickup game, we persuade our bosses for that raise and a lot of arguments and throat ripping on the sides.
The author explains how to handle all these situations with tact, why people react like gorillas and how to handle them so that ultimately you can win friends and influence people.
Go on read this book and be a Social Ninja.
3. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change — Stephen R. Covey
So good that you would realize that you were living your life filled with the wrong habitual thoughts and wrong habits.
The 7 Habits are not only for Effective People, It’s for you too.
4. How to Stop Worrying and Start Living-Dale Carnegie
Yeah Second Book by Dale. This one’s that last book I finished when I am writing this.
Our lives are filled with worry, with little nagging things that act as count Dracula and suck the blood right off you. We all want a happier fulfilling life, and contrary to popular belief it is the little things that cause the most trouble.
In this (pretty neat and awesome book) Dale explains each of the vampires and drives a wooden stake through them, so you can have a more kick-ass life.
5. The Alchemist — Paulo Coelho
This one needs no introduction, you should either have read it or should read it right now.
This is one of those fiction books that summarizes the above said books into the story of a Shepherd who sets out to find treasure.
The book outlines the life of an individual our worries, our dreams and our wants. A well written fiction book filled with love, bandits and treasure.
A must read book even if you are Wilhelm Kaiser.
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Hope you all enjoyed these book recommendations. Comment what you think of them.
