5 Books To Add To Your Library

These are 5 books I have found incredibly motivational, and recommend to anyone looking for some inspiration.

Ready to 'Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life'? The 5am concept is all about the importance of waking up early and maximising productivity in the morning. The idea is setting you up for a great day and getting the most out of it, ensuring you are achieving your absolute potential.

The book guides your through a fictional story between a billionaire, a struggling artist and an entrepreneur as they begin their journey as part of the 5am club. The core practice of the 5am club is the 'Golden Hour' also known as the 20/20/20 ritual, which consists of: 20 minutes vigorous exercise, 20 minutes reflection: meditation or journaling & 20 minutes learning, this could be reading, watching an educational video, or listening to a podcast.

If you are looking for something to elevate your morning and get the most out of your day then defiantly give this a go.

A truly inspiring read. This book will take you on a journey with the 14th Dalai Lama, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu as they discuss the challenges of living a joy life. The book is a documentary style, as they follow the events celebrating the Dalai Lama's 80th Birthday in Dharamshala, India.

The main topic of conversation is how to find joy in a world of suffering and uncertainty. Pulling on themes of Joy, Anger, Acceptance, Suffering and finishing on the 8 Pillars of Joy (Perspective, Humility, Humour, Acceptance, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Compassion and Generosity).

Something a little different, as they draw on their own life experience rather than facts and figures.

This book doesn't need much introduction as I am sure you have all heard The Secret. This was the first 'self help' book I read. It's a very easy read, easy to understand and to the point. The law of attraction and manifestation are two concepts I wasn't too familiar with before reading The Secret, but it does make sense when you look back.

It's a simple practice, and you should do it everyday and you probably do without realising it. Positive energy and thoughts, attracts positive things in your life, it's really that simple and this can be done through manifestation and visualising. Even 5 minutes can change your life.

If you are looking to change your mindset then this would be for you.

I haven't read this book yet, but is but next on my list. This has teaching of the importance of small steps everyday to achieve a successful bigger picture. Making better day to day choices will result in a wonderful future. It has lessons of how to achieve success in all aspects of your life - in your health, your finances, your personal relationships and family life.

5. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century

This was a random book I picked up, by best selling author Yuval Noah Harari of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. I haven't actually read this one but after reading 21 lessons, I will be adding to the list.

21 lessons for the 21st Century explores today's most pressing issues, I only wish I had read this 5 years ago, I highly recommended to all 20 year olds to read this as you will be facing these issues more and more in the years to come.

As one of the most innovative thinkers, he covers a lot of topics but he is very clear and makes easy to follow and understand. The book is divided into 5 parts (The Technological Challenge, The Political Challenge, Despair and Hope, Truth and lastly Resilience). Each part has 3 to 5 topics, this helps structures the book and keeps each lesson short and to the point.

Happy Reading x
