5 Of The Best Inspirational Self Help Books

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a good book. Right now, I’m into reading self help books.

I’ve always been the type of person who likes to try and better themselves. Who likes to set myself a goal, follow a dream and make my life easier.

The only way I can see that happening is by working on myself, because I’ve learnt pretty early on that you can’t rely on anyone.

If you want it, you’ve got to go and get it yourself. No one is going to hand it to you on a silver platter.

Anyway, I don’t want anything handed to me, I get a buzz from achieving something myself and reaching my goals. No matter how challenging it may be.

5 of the best inspirational self help books to help your self development. Woman sat in a bed with white bedding, wearing a grey and white stripped jumper. Holding a book with both hands over her face.

I know by reading this I sound like a pretty strong mama. But that hasn’t always been the case. I’ve done a lot of personal development!

I am going to give you my 5 Best Inspirational Self Help Books, that I have found have contributed to my strength and change of mindset.

The Miracle Morning :: Hal Elrod

This book has been life changing for me. If, like I was, you’re not a morning person, after reading this you will want to get up out of bed and put into practice the 6 key elements that make up The Miracle Morning. It has helped me put a morning routine in place to get the best possible to my day, making me more organised and putting me in the right mindset to take on the day!

Girl, Wash Your Face :: Rachel Hollis

I absolutely adore Rachel Hollis and everything she stands for. I love Rachel’s writing style and the way it feels like she’s talking directly to you on a personal level. In Girl, Wash Your Face, Rachel is like your own cheerleader, cheering you on and giving you the confirmation and confidence to follow through with your new found empowerment!

Body Positive Power :: Megan Jayne Crabbe

As someone who has struggled with eating disorders and poor body image, I was pretty anxious to give this book a read. But it was like a breath of fresh air. Someone actually gets it! Someone actually acknowledges the issues around western culture and our image of ourselves. Megan gave me the confirmation I needed to hear (read) to learn to love myself. It took me 34 years to find this book, but my goodness I’m glad I did!

Girl, Stop Apologizing :: Rachel Hollis

This book is the sequel to Girl, Wash Your Face. Again, Rachel has written another amazing book. Girl, stop apologizing dispels all the excuses and lies you’ve been making up that are stopping you from reaching your goals and following your dreams. Truly motivational.

The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck :: Mark Manson

I’m going to be honest, I haven’t actually read this book, but it is on my ‘to read’ list. From what I understand it is about being happier by stopping trying to be “positive” all the time and instead to become better at handling adversity. So, I’d love to hear the approach of this and the outcome.
