  • With so many books in the world, how do you know which ones should you read?

  • You probably don't want to waste your time reading books that give no value, that's why

  • you should choose them wisely.

  • In today's video, I want to talk about 5 books I read, that had a huge impact on my life.

  • These are the books I think everyone should read at least once and if you're like me you

  • will be re-reading them once a year.

  • Let's jump right in

  • 1. Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss

  • Imagine you could learn the tactics, routines, and habits from over 200 world-class performers.

  • And have that information in your arms reach.

  • Tim Ferriss has a podcast where he invites some of the most successful people from all

  • kinds of different fields.

  • He interviews them about what steps they took and what habits they developed to have reached

  • their success.

  • However each podcast episode is over one hour long, so Tim decided to put all the valuable

  • knowledge from these interviews in to a single book with over 600 pages.

  • This book is like a cyclopedia of success and shouldn't be read from start to finish.

  • Instead it is encouraged that you start where you want to start.

  • Want to build a business or learn how to create more wealth?

  • Hop to the wealth section and look for clues from millionaires or even billionaires.

  • Looking to improve you fitness level?

  • Open the health section and choose from dozens of experts.

  • Basically, whatever problem you might be facing, there is a piece of advice in there to help

  • you.

  • You just need to look for the right page.

  • 2. Mindset by Carol Dweck

  • Just how important is our mindset?

  • Carol who is a Standford university professor, says it can be the difference between success

  • and failure.

  • I already did a summary on this book, but to sum it up quickly:

  • She argues there are two mindsets people have, a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.

  • To have a fixed mindset means to believe your basic abilities and intelligence, are just

  • fixed traits that can't be changed.

  • It's thinking that if you're not good at science or creative work, it doesn't matter how much

  • effort you put in, you'll always be bad at it.

  • Growth mindset is quite the opposite.

  • People with the growth mindset understand that their abilities can be developed with

  • hard work and perseverance.

  • They are not afraid to make mistakes and actually learn from them.

  • By showing you examples of both mindsets and where they can take you, Carol will reveal

  • how to adopt the growth mindset.

  • 3. Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl

  • This is an autobiographical story that takes part during the second world war.

  • Dr Frankl, is imprisoned in a concentration camp for three years and struggles under extreme

  • living conditions.

  • All of his clothes are taken away, his friends and family are killed and he has to survive

  • with a single piece of bread a day.

  • He shows us how a man can be stripped of everything and still find meaning in life.

  • Dr Frankl says that everything can be taken from a man, but one thing: the last of the

  • human freedoms, to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose

  • one's own way.

  • Even though those hard conditions may suggest that the inmates were bound to act in certain

  • ways, in the final analysis it becomes clear that the sort of person the prisoner became,

  • was a result of an inner decision.

  • This book will show you that you can find meaning in any kind of suffering.

  • And it will make your problems, feel really, really small.

  • 4. Talent is Overrated by Geoffrey Colvin

  • How are world-class performers made?

  • Do they posses special genes and have innate ability from the start?

  • Research showed over and over, that doesn't seem to be the case.

  • If you believe in natural gifts and talent, then this book is something you should definitely

  • look in to.

  • It will make you question society's beliefs about talent that was ingrained in us.

  • Could what we see as talent, actually only be the result of hard work?

  • The book takes a look at child prodigies and world's top performers, drawing a conclusion

  • that world class performance comes only after years of practice.

  • It also shows us how that not all practice is equal, and that hard work isn't all that

  • it takes.

  • Instead, it explains a concept called "deliberate practice" and shows us how to properly improve.

  • No matter what society tells you, we are not born with special talents.

  • However, if you put your mind to it and use the principles of deliberate practice, you

  • can cultivate your skills and become one of those so called "talented" people.

  • 5. Quiet by Susan Cain

  • Susan demonstrates that Western culture is dominated by theextrovert ideal”.

  • The ideal self is a social alpha that craves the spotlight.

  • And these values are reflected in our schools and workplaces.

  • That's one of the reasons introverts feel out of place in today's society, since they

  • have a more reserved personality.

  • If you're an introvert, then this book should be added to your reading list asap.

  • It will help you feel comfortable with who you are, and realize that your personality

  • trait is not something you should feel ashamed of or guilty about.

  • If you're an extrovert, then you should also read the book, since it will help you understand

  • your fellow introverts better.

  • After all, about half to third of the population is introverted, even though it doesn't seem

  • like it.

  • That's because introverts have learned how to pass as extroverts just to fit in.

  • However, in her book, Susan shows us how introversion can not only be a positive trait, but a superpower.

  • Thanks for watching.

  • I'd like to hear which books changed your life and helped you grow as a person.

  • And which of them would you suggest to other people?

  • Feel free to post your suggestions in the comments below.

  • Together we'll become better than yesterday.

With so many books in the world, how do you know which ones should you read?
