Top 7 Mindset Books That You Need To Read!

1. The Chimp Paradox by Prof. Steve Peters

Every one of us has a chimp inside us. This chimp rules our emotions while we humans just go along with what the chimp says and does. The chimp is in charge. Or is it?

Prof. Steve Peters breaks down the fact that we humans are in control of our brain, our thoughts and our reactions in different situations. We all have a human, a chimp and a computer aspect inside our brain. Most of the time, the chimp wins and that is not good for anyone involved.

Humans are rational – it is the chimp that is emotional, yet the chimp always seems to prevail.

Learn how to deal with this emotional chimp so that you too can make better and more effective decisions whilst disengaging from this ‘red mist’ that most of us get from time to time.

This book is a must-read and certainly helped me change the way I think and react in certain situations.

2. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker

What makes the millionaire mind different from just a regular mind? T. Harv Eker will reveal the secrets in this book. It is phenomenal to know how your brain and mind works differently when you are thinking about big numbers, big dreams and big visions.

We are all capable of achieving such heights. It is just that our mindset is sometimes not in the right place – hence why it needs to be trained and tapped into even further.

3. The Power of Ambition by Jim Rohn

Ambition will drive you forward and ambition will get you to where you need to go. Having a very strong ambition will fuel your inner desire to succeed. If you do not have ambition, then you will not get very far.

Jim has a rather direct style of writing which is fantastic. Many books you read will beat about the bush and provide a lot of fluff but not a lot of content. The Power of Ambition delivers punch after punch after punch of good, strong and informative content.

The more ambition you have and the more you strive for success, then the greater the chances of it happening.

4. The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz

Thinking big will lead you to big things. You can achieve anything and everything in your life if you are thinking big enough. If you think small then you limit your mind, your abilities and your thoughts. Thinking big opens up a whole new world of opportunities.

This book has some very useful content and strategies for helping you to think big. The sheer simplicity of the content is why it has been recommended.

5. How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Managing relationships in one way or another is the key to winning friends and influencing people. The language we use, the way we say it, the way we do things, the way we act and do not act, are all integral parts of this masterclass of a book by Dale Carnegie. A very successful man in his day, you will find this book incredibly insightful.

It is definitely one of my favourites as it encourages you to show more empathy, sympathy and gets you to almost become a wordsmith when dealing with people. This is something that I actively enjoy doing as it is amazing to gauge the reactions of others when you place the emphasis on them rather than you with lines such as ‘I want, I need, I think,’ etc.

6. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

This book is an evergreen and timeless classic. How is it even possible to think and grow rich? Napoleon Hill reveals this secret in depth and really gets your mind thinking of how to do it. Released in 1937, this book has stood the test of time and is one of the most read business and mindset books on the planet.

Personally, I found this book difficult to read and to listen to. However, that does not take away from the fact that there are some very valuable life lessons nestled away in the text, hence its recommendation.

7. Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins

This book is ridiculously powerful. If you thought that you had a tough life, then David Goggins will blow you away with his story. From broken marriages to extreme training conditions and putting his body through unbelievable challenges, Can’t Hurt Me really demonstrates that the mind is a powerful tool (probably the most powerful tool that we have). This book also demonstrates that you really can achieve anything that you set your mind to do.
