Psychologists have discovered that our minds are ruled by two different systems – the rational mind and the emotional mind–that compete for control.
This book is about motivating yourself and changing behaviors. As we all are too well aware, none of those is an easy task. Change is really hard. Heath brothers, Chip and Dan explain so powerful and well spoken.
6. Think And Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill
Think And Grow Rich was written by Napoleon Hill in 1937 and promoted as a personal development and self-improvement book. If you want to find a way to achieve any goal or vision in life, this book is perfect for you.
In Hill´s own words: “The major reason why I wrote this book on how to get money is the fact that the world has but lately passed through an experience that left millions of men and women paralysed with the fear of poverty.“

9. Outliers, The Story Of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
Malcolm Gladwell looks at everyone from rock stars to scientific geniuses to show that the story of success is far more surprising, and inspiring than we ever imagined.
In this book, Malcolm Gladwell argues that the true story of success is very different, and that if we want to understand how some people thrive or why do some people succeed far more than others, we should spend more time looking around them – at such things as their birthplace, family, or even their birth date.
10. Feel The Fear…And Do It Anyway, by Susan Jeffers
“Should be required for every person who can read! I recommend this book in every one of my seminars!” – Jack Canfield, Co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
Feel the fear and do it anyway: How to turn your fear and indecision into confidence and action is about that fear is all around us, from having a tricky talk with your boss to facing up to a problem at home. The simple, life-changing exercises in Feel the Fear Do It Anyway will teach you how to turn anger into love and uncertainty into action.
I want to add the fact that we face the time of pandemics, and most people feel uncertain waiting for what´s going to happen and when this lockdown will end. The majority of people everywhere around the world have fear of losing their jobs or lost their jobs, staying at home.
“Fear seems to be an epidemic of our society. We fear beginnings. We fear endings.”
This book can help you to get clear that no matter who we are, no matter where we live, no matter what we are experiencing in life, we all feel fear. The truth is fear doesn´t need to hold us back from living a happy, fulfilled, and beautiful life.
