I love to read. Over the past few years I devoured a decent amount of books. Reading these books changed the way I live and how I see life. It is truly incredible how one book can change your perspective on life.
By reading books you expand your mind and your knowledge. It changes your opinion and worldview.
The following list contains books that changed my life and allowed me to see the world in a different way. They helped me to become the best version of myself and to live up to my full potential.
Here is my top 3 books that will change your life. Read them to break through your limits, to shape your thinking and to become unstoppable in every area of your life.
In this book Brian Tracey teaches us how to step out of our comfort zone and how to take risks without any guarantees. He explains how to live consistently with your values to become the best version of yourself, and how to set clear goals and accomplish them.
This book explains clearly how to approach your biggest challenges and opportunities of your life, completely unafraid and convinced of your ability to accomplish anything you put your mind to.
My favorite phrase from the book is:
‘Your thoughts are the most powerful forces in your universe, they are forming the world around you. As Shakespeare said, : “Nothing is, but thinking makes it so.” Your life is what your thoughts make it.’
