Books For A Good Life
Here are some of the books you can read. These will inspire you to change to a much healthier life.
1. Screw It Let’s Do It – Richard Branson
Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if you had just done it? Not overthink about it for days on end, make plans, and prepare for failures, but just did it.
This is exactly what we need in our new reformed life. The zeal to just do things and not lose your enthusiasm amidst all the overthinking. Richard Branson in ‘Screw It Let’s Do It’ teaches you vicariously. It is a record of stories from real-life examples where individuals didn’t give in to their fears and did the thing.
This book is like fuel that will drive your passion and motivation to do things rather than just thinking about them. There is nothing more fulfilling than reading about other people’s successes and failures and understanding what you need to achieve something.
2. The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
This is a classic book that will teach you all the deeper philosophies of life and how love, friendship, and powerful lessons are much more important than material treasures.
The story begins with Santiago and his journey to Egypt after giving fuel to a recurring dream which told him about these treasures found in the heart of a pyramid. However, the writer beautifully portrays the euphemism of ‘Treasure’ since it is the journey that gave him more treasure than the destination.
On his way, he met scholarly mentors who taught him the meaning of life, he even fell in love and learned the highs, and highs and heartbreak of this phenomenal feeling called love.
The book will teach the meaning of dreams and how one must pursue them in spite of the obstructions that will come their way.
3. Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
“Learning to love yourself. It is the greatest love of all.”
Whenever we hear this famous line from Whitney Houston, there is a spark within ourselves. A call to love ourselves more than anything and choose a little selfishness for our own good. However, it is not that easy, and sometimes we need the motivation to keep thriving with all the love we have for ourselves, without the need or pressure to get external appreciation.
If you have just gone through a breakup and cannot find the zeal, this is the best book for you. A one woman’s memoir of finding herself after a divorce. She travels through Italy, India, and Indonesia and lives her best life by accepting herself the way she is.
It is not about the travels, but the beauty in finding yourself after losing yourself in loving someone else is what stands out in this book.
