2. “Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins
Considered by many as the most well-known motivational speaker alive, Tony Robbins shares in his book various strategies and techniques for self-mastery. His ambition with Awaken the Giant Within was to help you take control of your financial, physical, emotional and mental destiny. Needless to say that Robbins absolutely fulfilled this ambition with his inspiring and incredibly motivating book. Not only does the book include timeless philosophical thoughts designed to help you live to your full potential, but the book also puts great emphasis on the implementation of its practical knowledge in daily life. Another great motivational boost is the fact that Tony Robbins speaks about his own struggles and what he did to overcome these.

3. “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen
Published in 1902, As a Man Thinketh is a profound, yet incredibly powerful classic. Usually, motivational books are centered on strategies that help you to become more successful in life. But James Allen’s reflections go much deeper than that. What he uncovers is the great impact that the thoughts you choose to entertain have upon your life. Along the line of “what you think you’ll eventually become,” Allen explains how thinking shapes our personality, which in turn greatly influences the way we behave. He also motivates the reader to seek for purity of mind and to strive for integrity and honesty in life. But what is so motivating about this book is that James Allen encourages you to carefully observe your own thoughts and actions so that a clean heart, life and body can emerge.
4. “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill
There are thousands of self-help books that promise to teach you to increase your income and to succeed in any line of work. But none of them come close to the best-selling classic Think and Grow Rich that was published in 1937. The book is based on the insights of Napoleon Hill, who closely studied more than five hundred of the most successful individuals of his time. The impressive findings of this motivating book made it an exceptionally helpful guide that sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. Many modern-day books address the very same issues Napoleon Hill identified during his investigations of illustrious people such as Henry Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Thomas Edison. But none of these books radiate the impressive motivational power of the original. This one is the mother of all motivational books.
5. ” The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma
This well-narrated “fable about fulfilling your dreams and reaching your destiny” by Robin Sharma focuses on helping you to create a fulfilling life. The motivating tale centers around being more courageous and the pursuit of a life that is in balance. Sharma tells the story of Julian Mantle, whose perfectly successful life as a lawyer is abruptly turned upside down when he has a heart attack. It’s the extraordinary story of someone who is faced with an incredibly challenging crisis during his lengthy and painful recovery. But as it is often the case, suffering can bring profound insights into our life and has the potential to help you see life from a different perspective. In the case of Julian Mantle, the stroke of fate led him to realize that his former life was out-of-balance and that adjustments where highly needed. This uniquely inspiring fable unfolds in the form of conversations with John, during which we learn that Julian Mantle gave up his Ferrari to take a more balanced and spiritual approach to life. And, as it turns out, he embarks on a life-changing journey to the Himalayan Mountains where he discovers the wisdom of an ancient culture. Accompanied with practical lessons, this fable inspires you to live a courageous and self-disciplined life by living life fully instead of chasing evermore.
