What Book? Books successful people read that will transform your life

Been asked many times to recommend books on specific topics so here I represent the most amazing books I read on various topics that have also been recommended by the most successful entrepreneurs and business men in the world. I will populate this list gradually as I am clarifying the books I read or am reading but decided to start somewhere. Feel free ad your topic or question in the comments below or contact me on the contact page.

Keep learning. Keep dreaming. Keep your energy up, keep fit. Talk to people smarter than you. Help people weaker than you, fail. Find solution and drop excuses (find how instead of why not).

I included some  BullShit Excuses that we all tell ourself in order to justify our inaction and fear. By reading these books or contacting me, I guarantee you will realise these are just excuses and you will be ready to start or step towards the change.

How to start or grow a business?

Usual Excuses: I how no time. I don’t have no money to start a business. I don’t have right connections. I don’t have the skills. It is too late to start now as there are too much competition. I cannot take the risk. I cannot start until I have it perfect. It is too hard. I am too old. Everyone will lough if I fail. Too busy with my job. I am a single parent in full time work and no time for more work. I don’t have an idea for  business. My business is different and there is no way to grow from here. I tried growing my business but it doesn’t work.

How to have better relationships, persuade, motivate people and become a better leader (marketing, negotiation, persuasion, conflict resolution)? 

BullShit Excuse: I am more of a doer than a talker. People don’t listen to me. It is complicated.  I just cannot find the right person. All women/men are liars and are taking advantage. It is difficult to find the right person.  I cannot sell. I am not that kind of person. Selling is lying – I cannot lie to people. People are born with the talent.

How to be healthier have more energy to do more?

BullShit Excuse: I don’t trust in diet. I don’t have time to exercise. Eating healthy and well is expensive. Eating well takes too much time. Sport membership is expensive – I cannot afford one. I don’t have facilities to do exercises. I don’t know what to do.

How to understand myself and sort my life out?

How to manage my personal finances?

BullShit Excuse: I am not good with finances. I am not that kind of person/type. I have nothing to manage, there is no money to manage.

The good news is that even this skill can be trained. And don’t worry if you don’t have money to manage – the reason you don’t have money is because you don’t know how to manage. So read and educate yourself
