Top 5 Self Improvement Books

Top 5 Self Improvement Books

There may come a day when you are looking to improve your life or gain a new perspective on the world around you. There are a number of books to school you on the subject of self-improvement. We will look at five of the best books that will help you on your quest of self-improvement.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
Deepak Chopra authored this book. It explains spiritual self-improvement. These seven laws are not complicated. They actually are ideas that we should practice in everyday life. However, often we are too busy racing around trying to get ahead and improve ourselves. The laws of giving, karma and detachment are some of the greatest laws of success that everyone should study. Not only should you bring someone a gift that you meet, you should accept the ones given to you. Many times we are too fast to say oh, you shouldn't have. Karma is self-explanatory. It can be described as you give what you get, you reap what you sow. Generally, if you are kind to the people in your world, they will be kind to you. The law of detachment can be explained as live and let live. We should accept people for who they are and not try to change them. We can all believe that when we try and force people to live in our mold problems begin to arise. If you accept them and they accept you, life will be less complicated.

The Road Less Traveled
M. Scott Peck authored this book in 1978. Much like the spiritual laws that Deepak Chopra talks about were introduced in The Road Less Traveled. We need to deal with our own problems and use this book as an escape into a spiritual world, which will help us to deal with our own problems. As a psychologist he gives the reader ideas from his psychic experiences.

The Four-Hour Work Week
Timothy Ferriss wrote this book in 2008. It is one that a majority of people would love to read and learn from. The book explains how to use your time wisely and shows how to have an automated continual income. If you can attain this you will not need to be locked into a job and can work from just about anywhere. It will also show you how your time management should be geared toward effectiveness.

The Art of Exceptional Living
Jim Rohn wrote this book as a guide. So many people today try to listen to everyone other than themselves. He teaches you how to follow your own rules. Chasing the Jones's or trying to make your first billion dollars is not the most important things. However, a great rule in this book teaches that whatever you are doing should be done exceptionally well. You should be the best that you can be.

How to Win Friends and Influence People
Dale Carnegie wrote this self-improvement book. The techniques that are taught in this book are not hard to enact. If you want to have someone like you just listen to them. Have them talk about themselves. If you want them to agree with you try to see things from their point of view.

So if you are looking for a way to improve your life, check out these five self-improvement books. You will be glad that you did.
