Reading books can awaken the imagination, take you on adventures around the world and other galaxies, as well as allow you to travel back in time. I have found that books can even inspire personal growth. Have you ever read a book that completely changed your view of the world? Reignited a passion that was slowly starting to dwindle out. Well, that is what happened to me after reading each of these books. I hope that after reading at least one of these books, you will be inspired too. *There are affiliate links in this post.
There is something to be said about a person who looks at life with a positive mental attitude. A positive mindset will make much easier to handle the challenges of life that can discourage you. Hill and Stone do an amazing job of providing examples of all that you can achieve with a positive mental attitude. They also explain why those who adopt a negative mental attitude will cheat themselves out of many opportunities. Although this book was written many years ago, their principles are still relevant today.
I want to suggest this book for anyone who is ready to give up. Once you read Think and Grow Rich, your desire to succeed will be stronger than ever.

Hill’s approach to personal development has inspired many men and women to accomplish great things. There is a reason why this book has sold over 100 million copies.
Many of us often wonder why we are not where we want to be in life. Could it be that we are getting in our own way?

Have you ever felt like you were watching your life past you by and there’s nothing you could do about? You stay at a job that you hate, your family life is in disarray, or you over-indulge just to numb the pain of life’s disappointments. Robbins has found a way to snap you out of it in 5 seconds.

You will find yourself pushing through your fears, becoming more confident, and breaking the habit of procrastination.
If you want to get a cold hard look at yourself and why you are where you are in life, this is the book for you. Manson gives it to you straight no chaser. He forces you to look at every choice you make and why you make them. Oh, did I mention there is plenty of profanity and other colorful language? I am all for someone who does not sugarcoat things to spare my feelings. If you are sensitive to such language, proceed with caution.
You may be wondering why a book like this is on a list to inspire personal growth. It is all about how the law of attraction can bring us all the things we want out of life. True. At one time, I felt my life was at a standstill. I hated my job, my relationship was more like a dysfunctional friendship, and it seemed like the more money I made the less I had. So yeah, I wanted to figure out how to make the law of attraction work for me. However, there is much more to “The Secret” than getting the things that you want. There is a section in the book called “Your Job Is You” that made me see the importance of taking care of me first. After reading this book maybe, you can find secrets that will inspire you too.
