The Top 10 Most Influential Books I have Read in My Life!
Updated: Feb 21, 2022
I have always been a bookworm.
I love the feeling of getting lost in a new world, trying to know something exciting, or learning a new skill that can fix my problems.
I used to read a lot of novels in my childhood days. But from college days, I started a particular liking towards non-fiction and self-help books.
There is nothing I love more than a cup of hot coffee and a new book in my hand. Trust me; it’s a beautiful feeling in the world!
Now, let’s jump into the books – I hope you find some interesting books to add to your reading list!
It was written in 1937 by Napoleon Hill; after 25-year research on some of the most economically successful individuals, "Think and grow to get rich" is recognized as one of the masterpieces in the personal development field.
It is also referred to as “Bible for Success,” According to a recent estimate, more than 150 million copies are sold worldwide.
Now, imagine spending 25-years on a book project, traveling all over the world, and interviewing hundreds of successful people. That sounds a bit overwhelming, right?
Mr. Napoleon Hill did it for all of us. This book inspired me so much that I had named my first book on Trading on this (Trade and Grow Rich).
If you are looking to make lasting changes in your life, this book can help you achieve your goal.
The book covers all aspects of life and can help us achieve a long and happy life. It is based on ancient and well-practiced Japanese technology-IKIGAI.
It gives an introduction to various topics like longevity, yoga, tai chi, blue zones, logotherapy, resilience, and many more.
If you google the word ‘IKIGAI,’ it shows many meanings. But my favorite ones are:
A reason for being, encompassing joy, a sense of purpose and meaning, and a feeling of well-being
A reason to jump out of bed each morning!
Our IKIGAI is different for every one of us, but one thing we have in common is that we are all searching for happiness in our life.
When we spend our days feeling connected to what is meaningful to us in life, we live with more joy.
It demands time from the readers. But every minute spent on this book is worth it.
The Power of Your Subconscious Mind
This book has a special place in my heart. It appeared as an angel in my life when I was going through a tough phase in my personal and professional life. I completed this book in one sitting, but it raised millions of doubts about the techniques mentioned in the book.
