Motivational books are frauds

GOOD BOOKS TO READ

BIBLE
KORAN
IFA ODU
TRIPTAKA

ALL THESE BOOKS ARE THE BACKBONE OF DIFFERENT CIVILIZATIONS.

Everything about society is in those books.

3. There was a country -Chinua Achebe
4. Tough times don't last but, tough people do. cool cool
5. Things fall apart and maybe d bible (esp. Ecclesiastics), so many truths about life can b found there.

. I don't think so.

Its just that most people read it without willingness to do the work required

Reading a motivational book without taking the action required is like teaching someone how to swim when he is not ready to get wet.

The Bible. It sum up all the life wisdom.

Proverbs has everything in wisdom.

It has been translated to many other books many religions has adopted it. Many of it's language are in our now communications un acknowledge even.

The writing of Jesus. Sumed up is love. You did not have to believe the stories. Just believe the writings

Love your neighbours, pray for those who hate you. Give to the poor. This are the message to shape you.

Serve God in your youth. Even if God wants to use you, he still needs your physical form. Your physical energy is required.

The Bible is a sum total of many nature's that will produce the right balance.

Hard work, decipline, perseverance, self control, love, humility. Right direction, focus steadfastness. E.t.c.

Too much other kinds of knowledge's and you may run the risk of dealing with fallouts of pride that too much knowledge creates.

God bless all you and have yourselves a merry merry Christmas!

The Richest Man in Babylon by Samuel Clason: [/b]This book contains the financial skills that made Babylon the richest ancient city, despite being located in a barren desert. If you want to know the timeless rules of wealth, it’s a must-read.

[b]Plutarch's Lives Vol I & II by Plutarch:
It has biographies of twenty-eight great men of Ancient Greece and Rome. It brings you into the lives of Alexander the Great, Julis Cesar and what made them great.

Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: [/b]Flow is a state of enhanced performance and focus. Due to flow, Michael Angelo or Newton would forget to sleep or eat while working. It’s a guide on how you can activate the flow state yourself and tap into your potential.

[b]Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
: It’s personal notes of a philosopher-king of Rome. It’s his way of stoic living in his own words. Even after his death, his work was continued to be praised by the noblemen of Ancient Rome.

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle: We have a negative chatter in our head that tells us what we can’t do. This book explores how this voice is created and how to break free from it. If you understand what it says, it’s like taking a breath to realize you lived your life in suffocation.

How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie: We have become cortisol producing machines. 77% of people experience stress that leads to health problems in America alone. This book teaches you how to deal with inevitables worries with stories of real people.

On The Shortness of Life by Seneca: It’s a book about preserving your time, written by a stoic philosopher who was wrongfully accused and was forced to take his own life. He asks “If a freeloader friend asked you for money every day, would you give it?” — “No, then why not do the same with your time.

But why will you put that Illuminati New World Order symbol in your post?

Is there anything else you want to subliminally communicate to your readers?

Motivational and entrepreneurship books are the pornography of the book business, it just for entertainment

You don't need any these books to grow wealth or build business, people just do.

Also be careful with most self help books. They contradict each other and most are realities of the authors turned into advice making it not stitched in the reality of others, not to talk about cultural differences. If you know a book that sticks with you, go with it and let your instincts guide you because they are the real guide to a person's path

Stop reading people's histories and fantasies and face real life.....you can never get life's true lessons through a book or novel you'd only get nuggets of examples.
