I started reading self-help books many years ago. I remember I was having a pretty difficult time in life, back then I didn’t know that it was all up to me and how I interpreted situations. I think books can change our lives tremendously it all depends on us and what we want. I can honestly tell you that if I hadn’t started reading self-help books I definitely wouldn’t be the person I am today. And I certainly couldn’t see solutions where before I saw only problems. I hope you enjoy these books.
Below you will find a list of 8 Best Self-Help Books to Read in 2022 :
1. No Limits by John C. Maxwell
An exceptional book dedicated not only to leaders, but to all those interested in personal development. Most of the time, the word capability automatically sends us thinking about the natural limits we each have. Unfortunately, sometimes we are guided by them, not by what is truly achievable. Many of us may have failed to reach our full potential simply because we perceive ourselves as limited. What would happen if the limits we think we have didn’t really exist?
2. The Disordered Mind by Eric Kandel
This is a fascinating book in which the reader learns about the interaction between environmental factors and genetic predisposition when it comes to behavioral disorders.
The benefits of this reading are many. On the one hand, we can understand what our disorders say about ourselves, but on the other hand, we can more easily empathize with people who think differently, overcoming the immediate, instinctive tendency to reject or stigmatize them.
3. How Life Works by Andrew Matthews
It is a book in which you will find yourself in many situations described by the author. And they are not insignificant situations, but they are situations in which we find ourselves very often and which give us great headaches, depressions, disappointments, dissatisfaction and conflicts with those around us. And this is only because we have not yet understood from what angle we should look at the situations we find ourselves in and why we find ourselves in them.
