 Did you know that 85% of "self-made" millionaires read two or more books a month? Books are the key to success. Any successful person, life coach, or motivational guru will tell you that before you start your journey -- Pick up a book (or a few) for the ride!

Below, I listed the best books that I've ever read revolving around personal finance, entreprenuership/business, goal setting, success, networking, happiness, travel, and productivity. If you scroll to the bottom, you will find the books ready to order!

This book breaks down everything you need to know about selling and providing value in the world through your sales.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill: This is a classic "must read" for anyone hoping to expand their mindset and change their lifestyle. It contains all the steps necessary to become successful in every area of your life.

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki: This is "what the rich teach their kids that the poor and middle class do not!" RDPD was my very first personal finance book, and it completely changed the way I look at money. I make wiser decisions about every move I make in my financial life, thanks to this easy read.

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie:  This is one of the most groundbreaking and timeless bestsellers of all time for achieving your maximum potential. Even if you find yourself to be an "easy person to get along/work with", this book will give you greater insight on what it takes to create and keep a network of great individuals.

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne: This book was my first personal development book and it has been nothing but life-changing. I've read this three times, and I simply cannot get enough. Manifestation, affirmations, and the energy that you harnest in your brain is much more powerful than percieved. The Secret gives you all the keys necessary to unlock the true power of your thoughts.

The 7 Habits of Highly Affective People by Stephen R. Covey: This is one of the most powerful and impactful books ever written.

Outwitting The Devil (The Secrets to Freedom and Success) by Napoleon Hill: Bestselling author Napoleon Hill reveals the seven principles of good that allow us to triumph over obstacles and find success. Fear, procrastination, jealousy, and anger often prevent us from realizing our personal goals. In this book, Napoleon demonstrates the secrets to being extremely successful and free from those negative aspects of life.

The Way of The Superior Man (A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire) by David Dieda: "In The Way of the Superior Man, Deida explores the most important issues in men’s lives―from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality―to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom."

Eat, Pray, Love (One Women's Search for Everything Across India, Italy, and Indonesia) by Elizabeth Gilbert: "Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life." 

This is one of my favorite books for travel inspiration. The memoir is so vivid and beatifully written, that you feel like you are right there with her immersed in all the beautiful cultures in which she went to discover her true self and true passions. It will make you want to drop everything and hop on the next plane out!

The Secrets of a Millionare Mind by T. Harv Eker: What you believe is what you become. If you want to learn how to be rich, first you have to step into the mind of a millionare and master the inner game of wealth! 

"We all have personal money blueprints ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is these blueprints, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money."

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson (A countertuitive approach to living a happy life): I'm not going to lie, if I never read this book I would've been a stressed out mess for years. Good stress is okay, but I was stressing and caring about the wrong things! This is a must read for anyone who wants a more laid back and stress free lifestyle!

"There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives."

The 100-Day Goal Journal: After reading a few books from the list above, you're going to feel inspired to start whatever goals and dreams you've been contemplating on! This journal is a great way to organize your thoughts, break down your plans, and attack your goals for optimal productivity and maximum success.

In order to travel the world, you need money. My favorite book to get into financial literacy is Get Good with Money by Tiffany Aliche.
