2. The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
Contrary as the title of the book suggested, “The Science of Getting Rich” is not merely about getting rich. In fact, this true masterpiece has been a profound influence on the modern age thinking, introducing the world to the power of positive thinking and the law of attraction.
According to Wallace D. Wattles, there is an exact formula and science to attaining all that it is your heart desires. This invisible law; though unseen but yet ever present around us (just like the law of physics or gravity) is what governs the process of acquiring riches.
This book lays the exact laws to men and once learned and obeyed, he or she will get rich, be and have all that is they want with mathematical certainty.
3. The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz
Every now and then, there comes a book that’ll truly inspire. With “The Magic of Thinking Big”, David J. Schwartz makes reading enjoyable as well as structured ideas and techniques in such a way that readers could understand, take advantage and start implementing them without going through the entire book.
This book is not just another motivational book. It sets your goals high and deep into your soul…gets you thinking and behaving in ways that will get you there. This book is the secret to achieving everything you’ve ever wanted regardless of your condition and state or not having any talents whatsoever. You will attain great success and satisfaction through The Magic of Thinking Big.
4. Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
“Vulnerability is the cornerstone of confidence”
The thing about “Daring Greatly” is that Brené Brown understood how our uncertainties are both the core of our difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity.
Through the eyes of transformative new visions and perspectives, uncomfortable it may seem, Daring Greatly is about having courage in a world where the idea of “feeling afraid” has become second nature – whether it be entering into new relationships, new career, getting out of your comfort zones, difficult family situation or simply the act of taking actions.
5. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
The Last Lecture tells a true story of Professor Randy Pausch who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and thus, literally giving his last lecture.
In this written book, he speaks to you directly. Sincere, heartfelt and cliché as much it may sound, he talks about the importance of really achieving your dreams despite various failures you’ll encounter in life. One day you’ll wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted.
Randy Pausch shares the most important principles he felt could serve as a guide to success in whatever field we might decide to go into. It’s about humanism, determinism, and love. Have the courage to follow your heart.
Be confident today. I strongly believe that each and every book shared above will definitely help and be a beacon on how to improve confidence. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t.
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.
