“Try leaving a friendly trail of little sparks of gratitude on your daily trips. You will be surprised how they will set small flames of friendship that will be rose beacons on your next visit” -Dale Carnegie
I studied psychology in college and loved it. I love learning about people, their lives, and why we all do the things that we do. Since I can’t go to college forever (if I could get paid to learn I’d be in!) I’ll just keep reading! I’m kind of a sucker for a good self-help book. I put together a list of a few of my favorite self-help books that I’ve read over the years.
My mom handed me this book when I was a young adult. Of course, I internally rolled my eyes:
It turns out it has some great information on key differences in how men and women communicate, and ways to make that communication easier.
This is a classic finance book and covers so much. It talks a lot about having your money work for you and not the other way around.
I read this book a long time ago when it first came out and have recently revisited it. It’s a book about living in the present, and so much more. I learn something new every time I open it!
This is probably the oldest book on the list, but one I discovered most recently. I kinda giggled at the title but ended up loving it! It’s a mix of wonderful people skills and analysis of many successful historical figures.
This book talks about how different people feel loved in different ways and how you can show that to people you love.
This is a short read with four simple ancient pieces of wisdom to live your life by.
This is definitely a popular book with a new show on Netflix too! I did this to my house a few years ago, and while you wouldn’t know if you walked in today, we got rid of a lot of unnecessary things and usually, I can find anything I’m looking for! It’s not a one time process for this mom but I’m so glad I know her secret!
This is a wonderful book that again, brings ancient wisdom to modern parenting.
I hope some of these books inspire you. If so please consider buying from our awesome local bookstore, Bright Side Bookshop!
