7 Self-Help Books That Should Be On Everyone's Book Shelf

Looking for a reminder of how awesome you are?

Self-help books can give you great pieces of advice that are sure to make you feel amazing. Here are 7 self-help books that you need to add to your shelves this year!

 

1.You Are a Badass

Do you ever doubt yourself? I'll tell you right now, don't. Because you're a f*ing badass. Hence, why I recommend you read this book. Although social media is an incredible tool that brings people together, it can be a stressor as well. You constantly compare yourself to others (naturally) without giving yourself credit for all the amazing things YOU do and the people's lives you touch. That's really all that matters at the end of the day, the people beside you and the happiness you find in each moment. Be kind to yourself ❤ / / / #manifestation #manifest #beachlife #zara #lawofattraction #abundance #bossbabe #youareabadass #motivation #inspiration #jensincero #bookworm #believeinyou #energymuse #bookgram #motivationmonday #travellight #betteryourself #dontquit #findyourpassion #travelblogger #inspireothers #fblogger #happiness #abmhappylife
