4 Great Self-help Books to Read in Your Twenties






When I was a kid, I hated reading. I did not dislike reading, but I hated it! It may sound a bit cruel to all the book lovers out there, but don’t judge me, the story has just started!

I do not know the reason why I hated reading especially when everyone in my family loved reading books. But one day everything changed when my mother insisted me to read a book written by Enid Blyton. I do not remember the name of the book now, but once I finished reading it, I fell in love with it! Then I slowly started picking up books from my school library and started reading books till midnight without the knowledge of my parents. In case you are wondering which book kept me hooked till midnight, they were nothing but the legendary books written by J.K Rowling! Yes, I was immersed in the world of Hogwarts, and Harry, Hermoine, and Ron were my best friends!

From being a fangirl of fiction in my teen years, I have grown to love self- development books in my early 20’s. I find them inspiring, motivating, and full of wisdom! I have learned so much, over the years of reading self-help books written by some beautiful writers and I am listing down some of the books that have helped me tremendously to gain a lot of knowledge about how the world works and have helped me to live my life more intentionally in a much more organized manner.

2. The 5 AM Club by Robin Sharma

"Own your morning and elevate your life" is the biggest takeaway from this book written by Canadian writer, Robin Sharma. The writer brilliantly explains the importance of waking up early in the morning and having a great morning routine with the help of three characters; a billionaire, a struggling artist, and an entrepreneur who is completely stressed out by her life. The author explains how having a perfect morning routine can help you live the life of your dreams by helping you reach the pinnacle of success in both your personal and professional life. At the end of the book, he also provides a skeleton of a sample routine that you can implement and change as per your needs.

3. Good Vibes, Good life by Vex King

I cannot even explain how much this book has helped me during the initial lockdown days. The book written by Instagram guru Vex King talks about the importance of self-love. He shares his own experiences as well as some techniques that will help you to be the best version of yourself. He shares ways to practice self-care, overcome toxic energy and prioritize your own mental and physical wellbeing. He also talks about some techniques to manifest your goals and desires using all the techniques that he himself has tried. The book is divided into seven parts and each part of the book inspires you and helps you to overcome all your fears and to flow with the universe. This is the perfect book for all the people who want to escape from a dark space and want to live a meaningful life. If you are a beginner to the genre of self-help books, then this is the perfect book to start with! This book provides you a lot of hope and is a major life-saver. I reread this book every time I feel upset. 

 4. Life without Limits by Nick Vujicic

This book is a real-life story of Nick Vujicic, who was born without arms or legs. It delves deep into the journey of his life and talks about all the troubles he had to face on his path to success. This book is extremely inspiring as it talks about the way he overcame all the obstacles and his disabilities to live a successful, independent, rich, and like he says in his own words, a "ridiculously good life". The book also stresses on the importance of finding your life purpose and also motivates you to fight for your dreams without giving upon them, despite all the odds and all the obstacles that you would have to face in your way to success. This book is a promising read!

These are some of my book suggestions. Hope you like them!
