As an introvert, I always love reading in my spare time. I love books that help me to know who I am, live the life I want, and give me the right mindset towards everything in life. This post will share seven books that change my perspective, and I hope that they will help you, too.
Table of Contents
#1 Rich Dad Poor Dad
The is a must-read book if you want to have the correct money mindset. It has been popular for the last 20 years.
I read this book when I was at university, but I couldn’t get the book. Five years after I started working my full-time job, the book makes sense to me. I wish I have read this book earlier. This book opens the door to financial freedom!
Before you start investing your money, it is critical to have a correct money mindset. If you think that you need to have a high-paying job to become rich, this book will completely change your mindset.
This book talks about passive income, why most of us are in this never-ending rat race game, and help you have the correct attitude about money with the cashflow principle in mind. Besides, the book also helps shift your mindset from an employee to an employer.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a must-read book for everyone, whether you want to invest your money or not.
#2 Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones
The author is James Clear. He uses easy and proven ways to show how you can build good habits and break bad habits.
We all know that it is crucial to have good habits, but many of us lack the motivation to do so. This book explains what helps you build good habits and shows you practical examples.
The book is easy to read. It is not difficult to understand the theory behind it. Atomic Habits is a book for all ages, no matter what academic background you have.
#3 Everything is figureoutable
American Entrepreneur Marie Forleo writes the book. She’s also a Podcast host, tv host, and life coach.
The book explains how your beliefs can impact your life. Besides, if you have an “Everything is figureoutable” mindset, you have control over your life, fight for what you want, not just passively accept the things that happened in your life.
You may know how powerful The Law of Attraction can be, but Marie uses her personal experience and real stories of women worldwide to explain it. I have read the famous book “The Secret,” but I like Marie’s book more. I was not a Marie fan until reading this book. I have a person (Marie) to look up to and remind me to have a positive mindset whenever I read the book or what her YouTuBe video.

#4 My Year with Eleanor
My year with Eleanor is an old book but worth reading. The book is a memoir of a young woman who decides to face her fears.
The book is written by Noelle Hancock. She got laid off when she was on holiday on a summer island. She lost her job and had no clue what to do next.
One day, when she was in a bar, she saw a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt on the wall of her favorite cafe to do something every day that scares you. That quote inspired her to face her fears. She listed down the things that she was afraid to do and challenge herself to do them.
This book made me face my fears. I hope it will also inspire you.
#5 Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life
We live in a time where we buy more than we need. When comparing with our parents’ generation, we have more products to choose from than need them. Do you have the same feeling?
Joshua Fields Millburn, and Ryan Nicodemus write the book. When Minimalism was not popular, they went on tours at their own expense, promoting the importance of being a Minimalist. Since we live in a world that we can almost afford what we actually need, why not focus on the most critical things in life, not be influenced by commercials and social media.
The book shares why you should be a minimalist and share the five core values of having a meaningful life. It is worth reading.
#6 Designing Your Life: build a life that works for you
1 New-York Times Bestseller form 2016. If you are not sure what to do with your life or career, this book will help.
Before 28, I didn’t try different possibilities in life. I just followed the path as my parents the society expected me to. I tried my best to get into the best university and worked hard to get excellent grades. Afterward, I worked at one of the big-four accounting firms working day and night.
I thought it was the life I wanted, but as it turned out, this was not the life I wanted. Though I had a good salary and could afford what I wanted in life, I was not happy. Can you relate to me? If yes, you should read this book.
I read countless books and watched many videos about how to live your dream life. I found Designing Your Life is the best one. The concept of this book is to apply Design Thinking to designing your own life. The book is also a toolkit with worksheets and activities for you to do on your Life Design Journey.
I hope you will find this book helpful if you want to live your ideal life.
