Topic: Self-help books
I'm in the habit of reading self-help books fairly regularly. My criteria for the best ones are that they offer life affirming advice with potential to genuinely change a person's life. Here are some of my favourites:
LIFE STRATEGIES, STOP MAKING EXCUSES!Do what works, Do what matters
SELF MATTERS, Creating Your Life from the Inside Out
by Phillip C. McGraw
"Dr. Phil" became famous by helping Oprah win her legal battle in the beef trial (he's a legal analyst) and he became a regular guest on her show. His practical advice hits home. I have read and re-read these books and dip into them time and again. He offers very clear-cut lessons and solid guidance for creating a new way of thinking and a new way of living. His insight is always inspiring.
MAKE THE CONNECTION, Ten Steps to a Better Body and a Better Life by Bob Greene and Oprah Winfrey
This is an excellent book about how to change your life by recommending a sensible diet and advice about getting fit. It's a book that I recommend as a kick-start to a new fitness programme.
THE POWER of INTENTION, Change the Way You Look at Things and the Things You Look at Will Change by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
I'm a big fan of Wayne Dyer and this book is one of his best.
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS by Don Miguel Ruiz
This is a fantastic book! I've read it many times and it never ceases to touch me with it's simple, inspiring lessons.
