Improve Yourself This Summer: 5 Must-Read Books

If you find yourself on a plane, at the beach, or just lounging around the pool this summer, it’s the perfect time to enjoy some great books that will inspire you to improve yourself. Personal growth is key in attaining (and maintaining) success in your personal and professional life. Whether you’re a networker, an entrepreneur, or a business owner, you should be reading at least 10 pages of a good book daily. If this isn’t your habit yet, summer is a great time to begin. Here’s my list of 5 “must read” success books to help get you started.

The 4-Hour Work Week1. The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss

The 4-Hour Work Week became an overnight success when it was first introduced because of the unconventional “mobile lifestyle” it recommended. The four sections—define, eliminate, automate, and liberate—show you how to streamline your life and your business. Now expanded and updated, it’s full of information on how to think like a true lifestyle entrepreneur.

Think and Grow Rich2. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was called upon by billionaire Andrew Carnegie to interview the most successful businessmen of their time and find out how they achieved great success. Hill discovered 13 common keys to success, all of which can be learned. (Good news for us!) Think and Grow Rich is one of the best-selling books of all time.

Success Principles3. The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield

This book is full of simple, timeless principles that anyone can use to move forward in their business, career, and life. No matter what your professional circumstances, this book will help you increase your confidence, tackle daily personal and professional challenges, and most importantly, live with passion and purpose.

The Slight Edge4. The Slight Edge: Secret to a Successful Life by Jeff Olson

Why is it that some people make their goals come true, while others just continue dreaming? One simple reason, those that are successful have found their “slight edge.” This book is not just another self-help book or full of tools or methods you must to learn in order to have great success. In The Slight Edge, Olson shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you.

Spirit Driven Success5. Spirit Driven Success by Dani Johnson

In Spirit Driven Success, you’ll discover the spiritual keys that unlock the door to true wealth.

I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I did. Personal growth is a process, but the rewards both personally and professionally can be huge. Take the time to develop the leader within and you’ll attain goals and dreams you never thought possible.

To your success,
