“The man who doesn’t read has no advantage over the man who can’t read” – Mark Twain
The aim is not to be better than the next guy or “flexing” on your enemies. But be the better person that you were yesterday. These books have nothing to do with style, but have everything to do with making you better. The material challenges and inspire you to grow.
Here’s a list of 5 books that we recommend for men who are in a journey to improve in all spheres of life.
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
In the book, Tolle asserts that everyone can find “the freedom and joy of life” if they live in the present moment. If you’re stuck in the past or struggle to let go of your ego – this book will give you practical hacks to do so.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
Bro, finding something important and meaningful in your life is the most productive use of your time and energy. This is true because every life has problems associated with it and finding meaning in your life will help you sustain the effort needed to overcome the particular problems you face.
Thus, we can say that the key to living a good life is not giving a f*ck about more things, but rather, giving a f*ck only about the things that align with your personal values.
Daring Greatly by BrenéBrown
In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.
The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene
Consequently, in his controversial book, “The 48 Laws of Power,” best-selling author Robert Greene argues that if you manage to seduce, charm, and deceive your opponents, you will attain the ultimate power. Greene states that the better you become at handing power, the better friend, lover, and person you will become.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This is a story of hope and perseverance. If you aren’t doing what you know you are supposed to be doing. Or if you aren’t following your dreams and pursuing your passion, you are not fulfilling your personal legend.
The book challenges you to look for signs in your own life and begin to trust your intuition.
