With a dozen flights, a few trains, several buses and some spare time at beaches, I had plenty of opportunities to read books during my trip, and there are definitely a few I’d like to recommend.
Most of my reads these days are non-fiction, largely focused on life improvement, motivation and so on, and I find these books to be quite inspirational.
As always with these books, you don’t necessarily need to follow their advice to a T, as your environment and cultural background might differ, and your mileage may vary, but they offer food for thought. They plant a seed in your mind that could grow into something big.
So here are my personal growth books recommendations:
Fish Out of Water: The Guide To Achieving Breakthrough And Permanently Transforming Into The New You
by Calvin Wayman
Make Time: How To Focus On What Matters Every Day
by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky
The Code of the Extraordinary Mind: 10 Unconventional Laws to Redefine Your Life and Succeed On Your Own Terms
by Vishen Lakhiani
The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure
by Grant Cardone
(Though I should warn you about falling for fake gurus… Take the motivation from this book and filter everything else)
Be More Pirate: Or How to Take On the World and Win
by Sam Conniff Allende
The following book is about a completely different topic, but to me, this was quite the eye-opener:
The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity
by Dr Nadine Burke Harris
So these are books I read while travelling around the world. I’ll see if I can make this list a regular thing on the blog, but I can’t promise anything.
Perhaps let me know in the comments below if you’d be interested in this.
