7 motivational books to charge up with energy
Motivational books to read absolutely to recharge.
There are only two mistakes that can be made on the path to truth: not going all the way and not starting.Buddha
I am not a big fan of so-called motivating books and on several occasions I have expressed my opinion, more negative than positive, on motivational gurus and motivational courses.
However, sometimes, a good motivational book read at the right time can give us the right energy to move inertia or laziness.
In the list I have not only included the great motivational classics, but unsuspected books able to move our minds.
But first of all let’s understand with what mentality we have to approach motivational books .
How to read a motivational book?
A motivational book is not a magical text that will do the job for us.
A book is just a book and its effect on us depends on our mentality.
Here are some of the mistakes to avoid when reading these types of books.
- Think of the book as a magic wand for motivation
- The delusion that the book will lead us to do something we have never done for years or decades
- Thinking of motivation as the only engine of our actions (ignoring habits and automatisms)
- Believing that a motivational text can guarantee us strength and energy for a long period of time
- Expect the motivating book to change our life without changing ourselves
In fact, I would like to point out that it is necessary to start with correctly measured expectations to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Now that we have the correct mindset let’s see which are the 7 best motivational books .
7 motivational books you must read

# 3 The richest man in Babylon
Even the richest man in Babylon I have already mentioned several times and I have deepened its contents in the article dedicated to him.
I put it in the list of the best motivational books because its narration is very particular.
It is not in fact a manual or an essay, but a story.
A story that thanks to the help of some characters will motivate us to make a change in our financial situation.

# 7 The secret of the giants (tool of titans)
Tim Ferriss is a very particular author, author among other things, of the famous book 4 hours a week.
In his text, The Secret of the Giants (an immense volume), Tim puts pen to paper and in a condensed way the best advice obtained from the many people he interviewed.
The book is so full of motivational ideas that you won’t be able to scroll through a page without writing something interesting.

Motivational or personal growth books?
As we have seen , motivational books can be very useful if we read them with the awareness of what they can really offer.
However, as I mentioned at the beginning of the article, motivation is only part of the process leading to the result.
Obviously, if a person has an extraordinary and inexhaustible motivation within him, even without particular strategies it is possible to achieve one’s goals.
But it is very difficult to get this kind of motivation from just one book.
For this reason, I recommend that you also read personal growth books to learn how to create habits, routines and systems to maintain motivation over the long term.
