Let’s face it, everyone on the planet needs a little self-improvement. It’s no secret that we are NOT perfect and never will be, after all we are human. Personally, I feel that it’s completely imperative to constantly and consistently strive for self-improvement daily, not only from a professional prospective but in a personal one as well. I also stand by the fact that no one man is better than another. Life is no competition, it’s a journey. Now, with my overbearing opinion out-of-the-way, I want to talk about one great way to seek out tips and tricks in the everlasting adventure of personal accomplishment and self-worth. For me, reading self-help is next to religion, whether it be books, quotes, or even articles. Some agree on this way of life, some not so much, but I think one thing that we can agree on is this:
ALL TRUE LOVERS OF BOOKS, HAVE IN FACT, INDULGED THEMSELVES IN AT LEAST ONE SELF-HELP BOOK THAT THEY ABSOLUTELY FELL IN LOVE WITH!!
I must say, my personal list is impressive, BUT there are two, for me, that have always stood above the others. No matter what else I read it is one of these two that I always refer back to. Honestly I couldn’t even tell you exactly how many times I have read them, they are both that good. So, if you are looking for a self-help book here are my top two recommendations. Enjoy, and happy holidays!!!
Rhonda Byrne is the creator behind The Secret, a documentary film that swept the world in 2006, changing millions of lives and igniting a global movement.

Rhonda has written three more bestselling books since, which together form The Secret Books Series: The Power in 2009, The Magic in 2010, and Hero in 2013.
In Rich Dad Poor Dad, the #1 Personal Finance book of all time, Robert Kiyosaki shares the story of his two dad: his real father, whom he calls his ‘poor dad,’ and the father of his best friend, the man who became his mentor and his ‘rich dad.’ One man was well educated and an employee all his life, the other’s education was “street smarts” over traditional classroom education and he took the path of entrepreneurship…a road that led him to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii. Robert’s poor dad struggled financially all his life, and these two dads—these very different points of view of money, investing, and employment—shaped Robert’s thinking about money.
Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people, around the world, think about money and investing and he has become a global advocate for financial education and the path to financial freedom. Rich Dad Poor Dad (and the Rich Dad series it spawned) has sold over 36 million copies in English and translated editions around the world.
