Top 5 Books for Success

These are the top 5 books for success that I recommend to anyone looking to grow and reach their true potential. Some of these are classics and have sold millions of copies. If you want to be successful you should not only read these but also apply them within your life. I like to have a highlighter handy when reading to go over important points and text I may want to refer to at another time.

1. Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

2. The Magic of Thinking Big – David J. Schwartz

3. How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie

4. The 4-hour Workweek – Timothy Ferriss

5. Your Best Year Ever – Michael Hyatt


Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill has written some of the best success books of all time. Think and Grow Rich is one of them. This book focuses on creating wealth through powerful visualization techniques. Hill goes on in great detail how he used visualization in his life to attract many great riches to him. This book will help you use your sub conscious mind to attract what you want in life. It is a top favorite of people from all over the globe. I highly recommend this book if your looking to increase your wealth and are interested in learning about your mind and the power of attraction.


The Magic of Thinking Big – David J. Schwartz

This is an all-in manual for success. The Magic of Thinking Big has had a huge influence on me and my life. It’s about controlling your mind to live a life of happiness and fulfillment. By being aware and present to make important decisions. Thinking bigger than ever before you will be achieve big results. Most of us fail to set big goals because of fear of failure or that it may seem “impossible”. This leads us down a road of average and normal. By taking risks and believing in ourselves we can achieve our wildest dreams.

Handling People

How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie

Dale Carnegie is a well-known author who has produced many best sellers. How to Win Friends and Influence People is one of his best. Dale speaks about how we all deal with people for our entire lives but never learn how to deal with them properly. Sometimes it’s not our jobs that are difficult but getting along with and understanding the people around us. He describes ways to improve your relationships and get along with a lot of different types of people. Create lasting relationships that can benefit everyone during your lifetime.


The 4-hour Workweek – Timothy Ferriss

Tim Ferriss is an extremely popular author who has a very great writing style. In this book he goes onto describe how a 4-hour workweek is possible. To create a business and lifestyle where you can work less and earn more. Tim has gone on to accomplish a lot of different things while travelling the world and working for himself. He has built several businesses of his own and gives concrete steps to follow, to create something of your own.

Goal Setting

Your Best Year Ever – Michael Hyatt

Michael Hyatt has been a favorite author of mine since I found him online a few years ago. He writes easy to read books that include online sheets and steps to follow which produce real results. Your Best Year Ever is his best book in my opinion and is about how to conquer your year ahead. He goes into detail into why you need to make goal setting a priority with a proven method to follow. He also talks about the Daily Big 3 tasks that you should aim for each day to get you closer to reaching your goals. By finishing only a few important tasks each day you will accomplish a lot in just a year.

You can pick up any of these titles with the links I’ve provided by clicking the titles or pictures. If 1 or 2 stand out and seem like they would be interesting to you start with those first. Reading from some of the best minds and thinkers in the world can help you succeed in your own life.

These books have been a staple in my life. I will reread them as a refresher as well as to get another perspective on the book. Sometimes I get a deeper and better understanding when reading a book for the 2nd time. This is a valuable tool to apply them into your life. Thanks for checking out the blog! Stay tuned for our blog next Monday at 5:00 a.m. Pacific time zone.
