Every now and again, every single person in the world needs help on self-improvement. Yes, this also means you. Keeping yourself happy and always having a positive outlook on every situation will greatly benefit your life. Thankfully, many of the greatest psychologists around the world have written books to help with this very problem. Some of the very best are highlighted down below.
Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy (David D. Burns)
Just for the record, these self-improvement books are in no specific order of significance. With that being said, Felling Good: The New Mood Therapy is widely recognized as one of the best. Its greatest assistance is helping depression patients fully understand how destructive their thought patterns are.
The Last Lecture (Randy Paush)
With a fitting title, The Last Lecture, is written to show children the core principles needed to increase the quality of their everyday life. Due to the fact that this book is a lengthened version of Randy Paush’s last lecture, it can get very emotional. Overall, it portrays how essential mentors are. Not only having a mentor for yourself but also being a mentor to someone else.
The Power of Now (Eckhart Tole)
The Power of Now touches on one of the most difficult aspects for people to deal with: the false self. For more generic purposes, this means your ego. Everyone has an ego and if you think you don’t, then you are wrong. Tole powerfully illustrates that the ego keeps all of your fears and anxieties present and that if you release them, it will greatly relieve your tensions.
The Power of Positive Thinking (Norman Vincent Peale)
There should be no surprise that Peales’ book is helpful for positive thinking. More specifically, it shows you how much positive thinking can affect you. It teaches you that you can’t worry about things that you have no control over. For people who constantly have this problem, this is a recommended read.
The Magic of Thinking Big (David Schwartz)
Much like the previous book, The Magic of Thinking Big teaches you that thinking highly of yourself is extremely important. It illustrates that setting lofty goals for yourself is important and that through the power of positive thinking, they can be achieved.
If you ever feel that you don’t have the right outlook on life or are struggling with self-confidence, then it may be best for you to read up on some of these tremendous books.
