Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers

This product was recommended by Abi Latham from Cat Care Checklist

I would like to recommend ‘feel the fear and do it anyway,’ as this book has inspired me to change my life. The title alone is good advice, but the book is full of helpful insights that made me realise I don’t need to follow a traditional career path or do what society expects of me. This book inspired me to travel, walk the Camino de Santiago and start a business. I’d recommend this book for anyone who wants to improve their confidence and have the courage to follow their dreams.

The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

This product was recommended by Gelen Revilla from Good Noise

Use the Power of Habit to make the changes that you’ve wanted to make but haven’t gotten around to. Habit is a book that is extremely useful. We start off with some obvious but solid reminders of how what we perceive as excellence is a habit. It’s not about “grit” as some other books would say. Simply setting a reminder to go to bed and putting your trainers next to your bed every night is a better way to get exercising than watching motivational videos on YouTube. Humans look for the way out. Make things easy. Create a reward loop and you will develop a habit. After a solid start, the book falters and diverges quickly. Stories become way too drawn out and – I would argue – not relevant to the reason most people buy this book. We get a long chapter on how supermarkets are monitoring our shopping habits via reward cards and can tell if you are pregnant from your food grocery list.

Doing This ONE Thing Will Change Your Life Forever! by Jacqui Olliver

This product was recommended by Jacqui Olliver from End the Problem

Emotional and intimacy issues which contaminate relationships are solved in this book along with a proven strategy for enhancing all aspects of personal connection. These insightful answers can transform an adult or teen from feeling frustrated, insecure and isolated into a happy, radiant and confident person.

The Queen’s Gambit by Walter Tevis

This product was recommended by Archaic Clay from RankChess

When it comes to finding an empowering book to learn the basics of Chess, I would look no further than the Queen’s Gambit by Walter Tevis. The Queen’s Gambit is of course known for its Netflix series, but the book provides an in-depth narrative that carries its reader through the basics of Chess. The Queen’s Gambit follows a young Beth Harmon as she dominates the professional Chess circuit which contains both life lessons and Chess basics.

Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

This product was recommended by Anna Krizova from Camino Adventures

This book teaches us how to cope with suffering. It has impacted my perspective more than any other book. It has taught me to find what is meaningful in life and let it drive me.

The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

I was looking for something more substantial, but this very much a run of the mill, formulaic pop-psychology book. Buying it is not necessary. Essentially the book says when you are triggered to do a bad habit, recognize that trigger and do a good habit in its place. There; you just read the book.

Holy Cow by Douglas Wyatt

This product was recommended by Caroline Baumgartner from Natural Brand Partners

Holy Cow: The Miracle of Life’s First Food is a guide to the natural healing power of Bovine Colostrum. From the moments after birth, mother’s colostrum provides a jumpstart to the immune system. Immune resilience and whole-body homeostasis are important throughout the human life cycle and in this book, author Douglas A. Wyatt champions the use of Bovine Colostrum use for overall health and vitality. Holy Cow explores the historical use of colostrum and milk from Ancient Egypt to the present day, with an emphasis on encouraging new moms to practice early and extended breastfeeding. With an exploding crisis of chronic and autoimmune diseases in Western societies, Mr. Wyatt explains colostrum’s role in halting leak gut, preventing the crossover of toxins from the gut to the rest of the body, and curtailing inappropriate inflammatory reactions which over time contribute to disease, debilitation, and premature death. Bovine Colostrum has emerged as an efficacious nutritional supplement with wide-ranging applications.

Tao of Jeet Kune Do by Bruce Lee

This product was recommended by John Dibella from NetLocal

I’ve been a martial artist since I was a teenager, but Lee’s book changed my outlook on why I do what I do, and made me realize that there was more to martial arts than self-defense. It helped me to understand the philosophy of movement and well-being and helped me to understand the fundamental truth of who I am, which is something that few ever of us ever come to truly understand or know.

Ikigai by Héctor García

This product was recommended by Olga Voronkova from KeyUA

With being a New York bestseller, the concept of the book revolves around longevity and finding one’s purpose in life. It motivates you to step back and reflect upon life. It savors a good mix of passion, profession, and mission. It is a short pocket-sized book and should be read at a slow pace. The book encourages the readers to engage in activities they like and never retire from them. To conclude, it serves some ancient Japanese wisdom on shifting to healthier working, eating, and lifestyle habits.

Never Pay the First Bill by Marshall Allen

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

Never Pay the First Bill is a primer for anyone who wants to fight the predatory health care system—and win. Drawing on 15 years of investigating the healthcare industry, reporter Marshall Allen shows how companies and individuals have managed to force medical providers to play fair , and shows how you can, too

The Nature of Life and Death by Patricia Wiltshire

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

A riveting blend of science writing and true-crime narrative, The Nature of Life and Death details Wiltshire’s unique journey from college professor to crime fighter: solving murders, locating corpses, and exonerating the falsely accused.

Empath to Self Love by Arlo J Lorenz

This product was recommended by Arlo Lorenz from FeltIt InMyHeart Press

It was written as the title / self realization of being an Empath is not new in our culture, but it’s trending and in all of my readings on the subject there was not a single source that addressed the subject with confidence. This is the book that changes that, it takes the mystery out of being an Empath and provides the subject loving light.

Mindset by Carol Dweck

This product was recommended by Alex Bryce from WeInvoice

We all have those habits that we’re struggling to discard but face various challenges. In a business setting, such habits can be counter-productive. Procrastination and impulsiveness are some of them. While self-help books are known to have the ability to help readers solve such problems, How to change takes an effective approach in an attempt to help business owners fight such habits. What makes these approaches exceptional is the fact they’re science-proven and use complementary case studies.

The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy

This product was recommended by Anthony King from Transport Executive

This book really transformed my life, and I’ll never be able to express how much it meant to me. I’m fascinated by the author’s ability to convey the mind’s strength and usefulness as a tool. He explains how maintaining a positive mindset can help us achieve our goals. He also gives some tips on how to stay positive even when it’s difficult to see the bright side of things.. In my opinion, everyone should read this book.I can guarantee you it will be well worth your time.

Euphoric by Karolina Rzadkowolska

This product was recommended by Karolina Rzadkowolska from Euphoric

Euphoric helps casual drinkers make sense of their relationship with alcohol and find an empowering lifestyle without the booze.

A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

As the title implies, a brief history of almost everything. Even though it was first published over a decade ago (and still refers to Pluto as a planet, whoops! ), it is still full of interesting facts that you will want to share with your friends.. Insights into geology, biology, evolutionary psychology, physiology, and universeology (not the real name, but I was on a roll). I guarantee you’ll learn something new AND have fun while doing it.

In My Skin by Kate Holden

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

So far, the best book I’ve read about women’s sex work history and experience is In My Skin by Kate Holden. It’s probably because it was one of the first (I read it in my mid-teens, though I’ve re-read it many times since), and it shaped my interest and understanding of this subject at a pivotal point in my life. Holden doesn’t hold back. When it comes to sex workers, she doesn’t shy away from the cliches or stereotypes that are true, but she also works to dispel the myths and prejudices that still exist. This book taught me how to empathize with people who made decisions I couldn’t understand or life choices I wouldn’t make for myself. For a good reason, it’s become a staple of the #ownvoices SW canon.

On Writing by Stephen King

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Writing could easily replace most high school or freshman composition classes (at the very least, it should be assigned reading for them all). Even if you don’t want to be a writer, you can learn a lot from this book. King sheds light on the nature of resolve, motivation, perseverance, and resilience. I’m sure you’ll use his style advice when writing an email or a book review blog (ahem). That gimmicky nonsense that too often populates the self-help section is absent here.

To Be Told By Dan Allender

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

Dan Allender has a way of getting his audience, although many would say he has a very Christian way of persuading the reader to lead a happy life. There is no denying that Dan’s way of looking at things can help anyone do better in life. The book allows you to help yourself and accept all your gifts and flaws. Once you get yourself, you live a successful and joyful life.

The Art of Happiness By Howard Cutler

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

This book, although inspired by the living legend Dalai Lama, isn’t written by him. The author here did an excellent job of striking the perfect balance between the theory of Dalai Lama about life in general and making it relatable to the western audience. The book will traverse through the importance of happiness and achieve it.

A New Earth By Eckhart Tolle

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

Leave your ego at the doorstep when entering the room to enjoy life. This is the basic mantra you’ll learn in this book as to how to control one’s ego and not to let it cause conflict in your life.

The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain de Botton

This product was recommended by Brian David Crane from Spread Great Ideas

Some people might think that philosophy isn’t for them or that it’s boring, but de Botton takes the ideas of classical philosophers and applies it to everyday situations in a way that is both comforting and sometimes funny. This book shows that philosophy can be for everyone and it’s an insightful, thought-provoking read.
