You Are A Badass
I love that. I also have the button that says “you are a badass” when you push it along with other phrases.
Been wondering the same!!
How to make shit happen by Sean Whalen. But what are you trying to improve? I also have recommendations for self help books to help with recovering from abuse, trauma, depression, etc.
Nope, just wanted to try self help but if there is something, I’m an extremely bad-tempered person
@Jenny I’m just starting this.
I agree with the Four Agreements!
Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig. It’s not a self help book as such but I recommend it
My favorite this year. Not written by a pompous PhD but a real dude who struggles like the rest of us
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck
The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*** by Sarah Knight
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers. Changed my life being able to recognize that I fear doing things, doing them anyway, and then not having that fear anymore.
A bit specific to creativity, but Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert is one of my favorites. I have the audio version and highly recommend it.
@Rosemary I’m reading this now!
@Rikki Are you enjoying it so far?
@Rosemary yes! I read the 64 pages the first night and really resonated with what she was saying about ideas coming and going based on our commitment to them. Idk how many times I’ve seen stuff and kicked myself because I had the same idea but never acted in it.
@Rikki I know, right?! She really hits the nail on the head with so many things. I found her insights refreshing because she manages to be inspiring without gushing all over the page. She keeps it real. I highly recommend the audio version, which is read by the author herself. She has a great voice, in my opinion, and it’s very nice to listen to.
How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie
@Karima yes! And keeps on helping me everytime I use all the wonderful tips in the book!
@Eric me too!! Amazing book ?
You are a badass
@Laura yes, all three of her books helped me so so much!!!
How to be a bawse by Lilly singh
@Kelly seems interesting !
Unf*ck yourself. The Power of Habit. And I’ve heard great things about Make your bed.
The Dance of Anger was something I found very helpful.
The Fairies’ Guide to Being Human plus the Magical Companion by Elizabeth Saenz
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. It isnt easy to go through, and you need to be able to stick to it and keep going over it to get the benefit from it, but its amazing overall.
This book really helped me when I felt a little down earlier this year ?
Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis ❤️
The Cow in the Parking Lot: A Zen Approach to Overcoming Anger by Leonard Scheff and Susan Edmiston
The subtle art of not giving a fxxk
@Kate I agree!
@Kate loved that book, and yes very helpful!
Mentioned above by a couple folks, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by don Miguel Ruiz – Toltec wisdom.
Makes a great stocking stuffer!
The monk who sold his Ferrari ?
You Are A Badass
I *loved* You Are a Bad Ass at Making Money by Jen Sincero. Really changed my way of thinking about and looking at money ?
So far.. A subtle art of not giving a f**k and Dale Carnegie books got me hooked?
And currently I’m flipping pages of The power of Subconscious mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy! It’s cool.
Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
12 rules for life by Jordan B Peterson. Amazing book
Beautiful mind beautiful life by Bryan Mamar
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
the 7 habits of highly effective people…i’ve actually read the 7 habits for teens, but it’s actually the same thing…it was amazing. It gave a name to all the things i thought must be done to feel good in life.
I’ve also read “the mindset” by carol dweck…it was also really good and full of real-life references.
If you like podcasts, i’d suggest “the science of happiness” … i just love it because it’s practically an interview with each person who adopted a positive mindset in their lives and how it changed them toward better…good luck! 🙂
The Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg
The gift of fear
Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. It helped me so much.
@Jan what’s this focus on? Super interested
@Rikki It discusses the instincts and deeper nature of women as revealed through storytelling and cultures. And how to reconcile with the wild side.
I read “Allan Carr’s Easy way to Stop Smoking” 4 years ago and have been a happy non smoker ever since. I smoked a pack a day for 27 years. I’d call that book a life- changer! It worked exactly as advertised; it WAS easy. ?
Very rarely read them but I did love Dale Carnegie’s ‘How to Win Friends..’; Karen Armstrong ‘12 Steps to a Compassionate Life’ and in particular Carl Rogers ‘A Way Of Being’. That was a game-changer for me.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F**k! ? first self-help book i was able to finish. it’s probably gonna be my first and last. i don’t really like these kinds of books, but Subtle Art spoke to me.?
If you’re a jack/Jane of all trades and find it hard to choose one career path read “Refuse to choose” by Barbara Sher
The nectar of pain by Najwa Zebian
Not a book, but Aaron Dowdy on YouTube was a huge help for me
Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes
The Lost Art of Listening by Michael Nichols & The Upward Spiral by Alex Korb.
Find the Good by Heather Lende
