I love to read, like LOVE to read. The books that I enjoy most and read the most of are self-help/self-motivational books. I think that with a lot of self-motivational books we, as the public in general, know all of the tips and tools in these kinds of books. The thing is, in everyday life, I think that we tend to forget these things. These books are such a good reminder and motivation to get yourself back on track and living life as your best self. Here are my top four favorite self-motivational books.

I’m sure most of you have heard of this book since it’s all the rage right now and being all of social media right now. It is absolutely one of my favorites though. I bought this book in the audible version, it’s the first book that I have bought to listen to. I loved being able to do things and listen at the same time. I would listen to it on my way to and from work, while I was painting my son’s room and while I was sanding a bookshelf that I am working on re-finishing. Another thing that I love about this version is that Rachel Hollis reads the book herself. That gave the book more of a personal feel and added the expression that she wanted in the text. I recommend this version for those of you who are “too busy” to read. On to the book content. Every chapter in the book begins with a lie. A lie that we tell ourselves several times in our lives and how to overcome that lie. The thing I love about this book is that Rachel Hollis is my age so everything that she talks about in the book is so relatable to me. She’s motivational and real. It’s a must read!
I read this book a bit ago and it’s so motivational and eye opening. Jen Sincero has a way of writing that makes it all seem so easy and all an aha moment. This book, as you guessed it, is all about making money. Jen talks about the ways to change your mindset and ideas around money and the negative feelings that people have about money without even realizing it. It’s a great book to read if you are looking to get finances on track and to help change your thoughts and beliefs about money.
Another Jen Sincero book. Clearly I enjoy her books and writing style! I bought this book as an audible version and really enjoyed listening to it. She also does the narrative herself so it makes it feel so real and personal. This book was a lot of things that I already knew but I often times forget to practice. Listening to this book put me back on track with my goals and is a great reminder to keep being persistent even when things don’t happen as quickly as we want them or expect them to. I do think that Jen Sincero has a very distinct writing style that not everyone might care for, but I encourage you to give her a try because I think that messages that she sends are really worth the read.
This is such a great book for everyone to read. I first heard about this book about 10 years ago when I took a class at work about it. For anyone who knows me, I tend to be a little blunt at times and things don’t always come out of the mouth the way I intend them to. This book was a great starter for me to realizing this part about myself. What I love about the book is that it relates to work, social and family situations which makes it versatile in all areas of life. It really makes you think about the things you are saying and how you could better get your point across in a less pushy and offensive way. I believe that this is an area that everyone can always work on improving.
