Self help books have become quite popular of late, as more and more people become interested in personal growth and development, which is turning out to be the only key to survival in this competition-ridden society.
1. Thought Vibration, Walter Atkinson - Attract Your Desires through the Vibration of Your Thoughts
Another one of the many self help books that focus on the law of attraction, the Thought Vibration explores the subject using a different and more radical perspective, making it quite a controversial self help book from an equally controversial author.
The main purpose of the book is to enlighten you on how to use your thoughts to attract what you want to get in life. It says that if you really set your mind on your desires, your thoughts will create such a powerful vibration that will simply magnet the subject of your desires straight to you.
Thought Vibration also teaches how to go through the process, which should begin with a clear and calm mind that is not limited by negative beliefs. The book is closely linked to the benefits of positive affirmations to train the mind and to remove limiting thoughts.
2. Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki Welcome Money and Prosperity with the Abundance Mindset
Rich Dad, Poor Dad is one of the most talked about self help books around. The book became a hit especially since it dwells mostly on money issues, which all people, regardless of age or background, can relate to.
The self help book dwells on how to invite money and prosperity into your life by seeing money making opportunities clearly instead of focusing on the negative state of the economy. Its all about developing an abundance mindset rather than get drowned by the scarcity mindset that is so prevalent today.
3. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey Change Results by Changing Perception and Interpretation
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People turned out to be one of the most influential books in the popular self help reading list. Although it was published way back in 1990, ripples of its influence can still be felt today.
Like the other books in this self help reading list, the 7 Habits revolve around the importance of changing your perception and interpretation of the world in changing results. This phenomenon was dubbed by author Covey as the paradigm shift. Covey wrote that the right perception can do wodners for your productivity and time management skills, making you an able and effective person.
4. NLP (Collins Need to Know?), Carolyn Boyes Change Results by Changing Action
Another intriguing self help book is the NLP by Carolyn Boyes. The book revolves around NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming. The book teaches another way of changing ones mindset, and how this simple act can pave the way for goal achievement.
The unique thing about the concept of NLP is that it begins with a change in action, which brings a change in results, which therefore changes ones thinking. This is a modified version of the law of attraction, which begins with a changed thinking leading to a changed action and then changed results.
