Here are the all-time best motivational books to inspire you in life

1) Man’s Search for Meaning– Viktor Frankl

If you are someone who is drowning in a sea of debt or have found yourself in an unmanageable situation in life, you should definitely read Victor Frankl’s memoir. He was a prisoner in the Nazi death camps during the holocaust. Victor had a spiritual awakening as he was beaten, and tortured by the Nazi Germans for years. The gist of this book is to find true meaning in life and not seek endless pleasure.

2) Think and Grow Rich– Napoleon Hill

This book was released in 1937 by Napolean Hill. Considered as a bible of personal finance, this book will inspire you to attain undreamed-of riches. One of the best bit of advice from this book is to “always do more than you get paid for as an investment in your future“. A lot of people do not trust Napolean Hill and some also call him a con man, but the knowledge he shared in the book has made thousands of people wealthy.

3) The Happiness Hypothesis-Jonathan Haidt

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so” Jonathan Haidt

For the psychology aficionados out there, the award-winning psychologist, Jonathan Haidt in this book has shared how a human mind works. The book is a fine blend of scientific research and philosophy. Moreover, this is not one of those books that make you feel good momentarily.

4) As a Man Thinketh– James Allen

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.” James Allen

This is one of those books you have to read a few times before judging it’s true worth. Although the title of the book denotes the thinking process of a man, it can benefit both genders. James believes that attain the highest level of confidence, one has to first have a pure heart. Impurity of thoughts leads a person to his own grave. This book is recommended for people with low confidence and weak will power.

5) Awaken the Giant Within– Anthony Robbins

Tony Robbins is one of the most successful self-help gurus in modern history. He learned his trade quite early in his life when he worked as an assistant to the author of “The Seasons of Life”, Jim Rohn. Awaken the giant within presents a ground-breaking scientific way to bring inner change. I recommend reading at your own pace without rushing through it. Almost all lessons of self-mastery discussed in this book are original and powerful.


Motivational books are the secret to being inspired all the time. Read at least a book a month. It’s also how you succeed in life. Incorporate the concepts you learned from books into your life and open up new channels of growth and prosperity.
