My Top 10 All-Time Favorite Life-Changing Books

I'm back home and going through my mountain of backed-up emails.

A lot of emails are from media wanting to interview me. One reporter wanted to know my top ten all-time favorite life-changing books. A book addict like me can't pass up a question like that. I dropped everything and quickly listed the following:

The Magic of Believing by Claude Bristol - This one changed my life when I was a teenager. I've read it a dozen times since. It's a classic.

The Book of est by Luke Rhinehardt - This is my second favorite book of all time. It shows how you create your own life. It's very hypnotic.

Attaining Your Desires by Genevieve Behrend. This two-volume set of gems by the only personal student of Judge Troward reveals the true secrets of the universe. Inspiring.

Zero Limits by Dr. Hew Len - This is an incredible simple system for removing all barriers to success by a therapist who used it to heal an entire ward of mentally ill criminals. It's a little unfair to list it here because I co-authored it, but still, the book is changing my life.

177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class by Steve Siebold - A masterpiece of wisdom that you need to read, absorb and study. A work of genius.

Beyond Positive Thinking by Dr. Robert Anthony - A classic by a living legend.

At Your Command by Neville - This is the little known first ever book by the mystic that changed my life. I love Neville.

The Success Principles by Jack Canfield - A modern day classic by a true hero of personal growth.

Why Is This Happening to Me -- Again? by Michael Ryce. This one helped me see my inner programs and helped me release them. A powerful book.

Think like a Winner! by Dr. Walter Staples. A remarkable clear-headed approach to change from the inside out.

There's another dozen or so books that should be on the list, but when forced to keep it to just ten, there's my pick.

Ao Akua,

PS - I can't leave this post without mentioning that Barry Neil Kaufman's To Love Is To Be Happy With was another life-changing book for me.

PPS - I can't believe I didn't list Debbie Ford's eye-opening book, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers. Anything by Debbie is worth reading. This one gets you to own your "shadow self" - the part of you that you are trying to hide from the world. Integrate it and you have super hero powers. Well, you'll at least be happier.

PPPS - There are so many more books I wish I could list here. What are your life-changers?

In The Attractor Factor Joe mentioned Randy Gage. I did a little research and ordered one of Randy's CD packages. Randy mentions Catherine Ponder and her book the Dynamic Laws of Prosperity. I read that book once, went back and highlighted key sections then went back again and make notes that I carry with me as I travel allot. I would say that book has influenced me more than any others. Now I am studying Busting Lose From The Money Game by Bob Scheinfeld. This material is taking me to a new level of appreciation.

This path started with Joe. Thank you.

Dear Joe,

Thank you for this terrific list. For me, Byron Katie's books (and her process, The Work, and her presence) are among the greatest life-changers. They are wonderful companion volumes to those that you and others have listed here. The Work is the simplest, most direct path I know of to a clear mind.

In order to know there are no limits, we must question the beliefs that stand in the way of our perceived limitation; acting "as if" has never worked; there must be deep conviction, and self-inquiry provides that beyond a doubt. What arises from this simple exercise in knowing our own truth is gratitude for "what is." And, as Katie says, "Just when you think life can't possibly get any better, it does; it's a law." THAT's the open secret!


Katie's books are:

Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life (they do if you answer them!)

I Need Your Love: Is That True? How to Stop Seeking Love, Approval and Appreciation and Find Them Instead

A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are

Interested lovers of truth can find these books and many others that have inspired me at my website, ClearLifeSolutions.com. To learn more about The Work, visit TheWork.com. Katie really gives away the store on her website!

With warm regards and appreciation for what you share,
Carol
