Hard to pick a best one. Have been encouraged by Brene Brown, Harriet Lerner, Henry Cloud, and the old classics “Codependent No More” by Melody Beatty and “Road Less Traveled” by M Scott Peck.
I’ve heard good things about “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k.”
As have I!
Gary vaynerchuk is incredible.

Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur

Friends have recommended a book called “girl, wash your face” and said it was awesome
Refuse to Choose by Barbara Sher
I don’t read self help books anymore but I would still read hers. She’s amazing and gives really unusual advice.
Interesting data on motivation in this one!
Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics by Dan Harris.
I’m reading waking up in Paris right now. It’s about starting over and healing. It’s really very good.
When Things Fell Apart by Pema Chodron
Calling In The One. Hokey title for an in-depth workbook that helps you understand why you pick certain relationships as well as helps you see what your life/relationship goals are. It completely re-ordered my thinking.
Anything by Sarah Knight
Big magic-Elizabeth Gilbert
A great one for creative minds!
YOU CAN IF YOU THINK YOU CAN. Norman vincent Pearl
Anything from Osho and A young boy and his best friend the universe, any volume. There are a lot of other great suggestions on this thread too, I would recommend getting the book that you are drawn to most. Hope you feel better soon. ✨
Anything from Osho, I second that heavily. You can pick from so many subjects, pick one that speaks to you. My favorite was “being in Love” & “rebellion”
the four agreements.
Medusa by Micheal Dibdin
Mummy by Anne Rice
Both captivating,couldn’t put it down for a second
Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg
Awakening Joy by James Baraz (I think it qualifies as selfhelp). It changed the way I think.
Had a variety had various times I needed different boosters 🙂
My favourite for the inner work over the years is:
7 Ahas of Highly Englightened Souls by Mike George (great for stressful periods or any challenges with relationships to self or others
Others I re-read time and time again:
Women who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
WE Manifesto by Gillian Anderson (very practical exercises to do)
The Power of Vulnerability and Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay
Feel the Fear & Do It Anyway & Embracing Uncertainty by Susan Jeffers
Hero by Rhonda Byrne (empowering stories)
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
Desire Map by Danielle Laporte (reflection exercises to do)
Deepak Chopra and Osho has a lot of uplifting books too.
Jess, I forgot to ask the question, what are you wanting motivated to do? That might prompt us to share different book recommendations too that focus on that area of development 🙂
There really nothing in particular. I just read a lot of self help genre when I was young and miss it.
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
Zen and the Art of Happiness – Chris Prentiss. Really.
“The Untethered Soul” by Michael A. Singer. I loved it so much.
7 Habits of highly effective people. Outstanding!
Peace of body, peace of mind. By rose vansickle
My current read. The book of Leviticus is testing my patience.lol
@Joss try Isaiah , is my favourite OT book
Seems like I will have to hold that thought until I reach it.
The Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun
The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F#*k
The Happiness Project
7 Habits of Highly Effective People
QBQ – Question Behind the Question
Any and all of Peter Walsh’s decluttering books.
The Universe Has Your Back, Gabby Bernstein
The Road Less Traveled
I loved this one!! I didn’t finish it though, but looking for it
@Joss It’s worth finding! Good luck.?
Tuesdays with Morrie and Fourth Rules of love
Resilient by Rick Hanson and his son. For more info: https://www.bookdepository.com/Resilient-Rick-Hanson/9781846045813
The road less traveled
For me personally, who suffers from anxiety, depression and PTSD, anything by Albert Ellis and When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Kushner (I think)
An Unquiet Mind about a highly successful woman with bipolar disorder. Inspirational for anyone.
It’s more psychology than self help, but David Burns’ Feeling Good is actually shown to make readers feel better. It’s a primer in CBT, which works!
Such a helpful book in my opinion.
and, oh, I thought self-help was psych?
@Stacey, I know book stores group them together. Psychology tends to be more what mental health professionals use. Self help varies a lot in quality. (I’m a therapist!)
I’m OK You’re OK
I just read The Power of Full Engagement by Jim Loehr and am finding it very useful.
Women Who Run With Wolves, I read it twenty years ago and still refer to it when feeling off my game.
Interesting suggestion. I love the book but wouldn’t have characterised it as a self-help book
@Tatjana it is in a way which guides you to follow your dream no matter what… It helps you realise your self
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.
12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos Jordan Peterson.

The Miracle Morning and Joy is an Inside Job are two of my favorites
The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer
Men: An Owner’s Manual by Stephanie Brush
Following so I can find this one later!
I agree with the suggestion of Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. I’ve read many self-help books over the years, and this one has had the most impact. I remember specific chapters of the book, which I cannot say is true of many of the others I’ve read.
The Road Less Travelled
How to Unf*ck yourself. It is funny but very realistic.
The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron
Unbinding the Heart by Agapi Stassinopoulos
How to be a Badass by Jen Sincero
That used to be my fave until I read Kick Ass with Mel Robbins last week.
The Big Book
The Dance of Connection by Harriet Lerner, Ph.D. She wrote a whole series of “Dance” named books, each helpful in different ways.
I like the intersections of psychology and philosophy. I’ve got Viktor Frankl’s classic “Man’s Search for Meaning” on order for me to read next!
Anything Brene Brown!! Also highly recommend The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
The Way of the Peaceful Warrior & Many Lives, Many Masters.
patti digh’s life is a verb …. sets you on a path of thinking about things differently ….

How to Win Friends and Influence People. And Kick Ass with Mel Robbins.
Flourishing by Maureen Gaffney. It is practical, insightful and is thankfully free of platitudes. Enjoy ?
The Greatest Salesman in the World. Matthew McConaughey credits it too.
How to Win Friends and Influence People is a fave, too.
