‘Change your thoughts and you change your world’ writes Norman Vincent Peale in this exhilarating world-wide bestselling book. According to the author, we are what we think. We feel what we want. Whatever the mind expects, it finds. We can be positive or negative, enthusiastic or dull, active or passive. The key lies in making a start. A start with positive speaking.

3. THE POWER OF NOW By Eckhart Tolle


You don’t need to be spiritual to read this book.¬†The core message of the book is simple and powerful: The way to true happiness is through learning to live in the now, in this moment we are experiencing, without reliving the past or racing to the future. Tolle’s clear writing, supportive voice and enthusiasm makes this an excellent manual for anyone who’s ever wondered what exactly “living in the now” means

4. AWAKEN THE GIANT WITHIN By Anthony Robbins  

“You and I have that same power at our disposal every moment of the day. At the moment, the questions that we ask ourselves   can shape our perception of who we are, what we’re capable of, and what we’re willing to do to achieve our dreams” – Anthony Robbins

5. YOU ARE A BADASS By Jen Sincero 

This is a book which is helpful and funny at the same time. It tells you that you are in charge of your life and that it’s up to you to adopt a positive mindset and make changes.


If there’s¬†one book that shows you how to create and maintain lasting change in your life ‚Äì then it would be ‚ÄúSwitch‚Äú. Chip & Dan beautifully describe how to create a change and sustain it throughout your life.

7. THE MAGIC OF THINKING BIG By Dr. David J. Schwartz, PH.D
“Those who believe they can move mountains, do. Those who believe they can‚Äôt, cannot. Belief triggers the power to do.‚Äù -¬†David J. Schwartz

8. THE SECRET By Rhonda Byrne

Rhonda Byrne’s ‘THE SECRET’ is the 2006 best selling book based on an earlier film of the same name. It is based on the law of attraction¬†and claims that positive thinking¬†can create life-changing results such as increased happiness, health and wealth!
