A Must Read: 6 Amazing Books that Transformed my Life!

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

Living can be a challenge, irritating, and perplexing for many of us at some point. Plenty of us encounter scenarios that might make us feel powerless or despondent. Thankfully, many of life's perplexing puzzles can be solved by reading books.

Reading can positively affect our minds and lives; it helps reduce tension and allows us to look at life from an alternate viewpoint. Reading inspiring books activates our neural pathways, which benefits us as individuals. Bearing this in mind, I urge you to start reading and expose yourself to different and unfamiliar realms.

I have compiled a list of six fantastic books that have altered the course of my life, and I hope they can do the same for you.

  1. "Yesterday I Cried by Iyanla Vanzant. Through this book, she demonstrates how life's struggles can be reframed and changed into valuable teachings that help us to evolve, cure and learn to love. She emphasizes that the sorrow of the past does not have to determine the present. Iyanla Vanzant explains how yesterday's tears can transform into today's seeds of hope, regeneration, and strength.

  2. "Don't Drop the Mic" by T.D. Jakes. The author galvanizes readers to contemplate their communication abilities, highlighting the importance of paying attention to the words and tone one employs. Regardless of the topic or the audience, speaking accurately has a higher chance of achieving the desired result. The author provides instructions on composing a message, either in an email or when presenting to a group, that will leave a lasting impression. Furthermore, we gain insight into the importance of good communication to establish strong connections.

  3. T.D. Jake's book, "When Women Pray," focuses on the greater power of the current generation of women. He encourages them to uncover their might, well-being, and voice through Jesus Christ! He suggests that they should take a cue from their grandparent's way of praying and emulating their daughters' dreams, which can be their daughters' stories of ten biblical women for guidance.

  4. Tony Robbins's "Awaken, The Giant Within" gives a plan for people to gain authority over their life, starting with their mentality and carrying on to their relationships, job, and finance. This can help them to reach their highest potential.

  5. In Jen Sincero's book, "You Are a Badass," the author regularly points out the flaws in our decisions. We often do what we are told to do periodically instead of following our true interests. According to Sincero, we can become more content and successful if we focus on our passions. The book seeks to help readers identify and change any self-sabotaging attitudes or behaviors that stand in the way of achieving their ambitions. Additionally, it encourages the readers to take risks, make money, and learn to love themselves and others.

  6. In his book "SOAR," TD Jakes explains how to take your vision and make it a meaningful contribution to society. This book will stimulate your imagination to work, persuade you to accept the divine errand and unite your individuality and inventiveness with your profession, melding a business executive's sensible business acumen with a life mentor's powerful motivation. 

I'm a voracious reader, and these six books profoundly impacted me. But if I had to pick a favorite, I'd have to say "SOAR" and "Yesterday I Cried" are my absolute favorites. This is because these two books assisted me in confronting my prior suffering and grief; through these books, I found closure. Living from a distinct point of view has been a blessing because I can now deal with pain, loss, and adversity constructively. These two books gave me a sense of security because I know that even if I make mistakes, I can still trust myself and be incredible and intense. After all, we learn and grow from our mistakes. Reading these two books taught me that my past does not prevent me from becoming the best version of myself.

The best way to realize your maximum potential is to feed your mind with inspiring media, such as books, music, speeches, and more. Just as plants need to be hydrated and our bodies require sustenance to flourish, our brains and spirits require stimuli to thrive; in the end, our minds are involved in every activity we do, so why not feed them with positive and delightful things?

"You are essentially whom you create yourself to be, and all that occurs in your life is a result of your own making."
