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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
