Unlock boundless growth and self-improvement with these three life-changing books
As someone who used to resist re-reading books, I now understand the transformative impact of revisiting these three life-changing works:
Atomic Habits by James Clear
Our lives are based on habits.
We have an evening routine of brushing our teeth, flushing, washing our face, skincare,…
Your brain doesn’t have to think about it anymore. It’s automatic.
We need habits to control our life because else the brain wouldn’t have time to think about the tasks we have to do at the moment.
We couldn’t sleep because the brain would have to think about what to do when waking up…
That’s the reason why we have habits and why we should establish habits that are based on what we want to achieve in life.
There are good and bad ones. A bad one is that you eat a whole chocolate bar while watching a movie.
It’s hard to get rid of habits and to build new ones but with the book by James Clear, I’m sure you can do it.
I’ve established a few habits like a morning routine or skincare based on this book. And I didn’t quit ever since.
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.”
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
The book changed my view about what is possible by having the right mindset.
Why do some people who grew up poor become wealthy and some don’t?
It’s not just about willpower, intelligence, and luck. It’s about the mindset.
There are beliefs that can prevent you from becoming rich.
If you think negatively about money, you will not get more money.
If you think rich people are a pain in the ass, you will not get rich and will not be that pain in the ass.
That negative mindset is what prevents people from becoming rich.
The second point I learned is that richness is not about money, but about wealth and the freedom to choose how to live.
Almost all of the people who want to become a millionaire don’t want it for the money, the fancy cars, and the beautiful ladies. And if they do: they will lose that money fast.
“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.”
— Napoleon Hill
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
When I first read it, it blew my mind.
I was always thinking too much about what people would think of me.
I was stressed about how people thought about me, how I looked,… I was crazy busy thinking too much.
But the thing is: the other people also think only about themselves and how they look like, what people think of them,…
It blew my mind because other people think the same as me. And I know that I don’t think about what other people wear or how they behave. So I know that people don’t think about that too.
We all think about ourselves, we all have our own problems. Most of the time we don’t even have time to think about others. Except when people gossip.
“Who you are is defined by what you are willing to struggle for”
— Mark Manson
There are so many great books out there and I’ve read a lot of them.
But learning is more about re-reading the best books again and applying the lessons.
Make your own choices of books you want to re-read, and those can also change with the years.
You will find new lessons in books already read because you are changing.
