Self help

Here are 10 trending Self-Help books that will change your perspective of life.

Open Book

This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didn’t want to lie.

Jessica couldn’t be authentic with her readers if she wasn’t fully honest with herself first.

Now America’s Sweetheart, preacher’s daughter, pop phenomenon, reality tv pioneer, and the billion-dollar fashion mogul invites readers on a remarkable journey, examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others, but also burdened her with an almost crippling need to please. Open Book is Jessica Simpson using her voice, heart, soul, and humor to share things she’s never shared before.

First celebrated for her voice, she became one of the most talked-about women in the world, whether for music and fashion, her relationship struggles, or as a walking blonde joke. But now, instead of being talked about, Jessica is doing the talking. Her book shares the wisdom and inspirations she’s learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture cliché’s — “chicken or fish,” “Daisy Duke,” “football jinx,” “mom jeans,” “sexual napalm…” and more. Open Book is an opportunity to laugh and cry with a close friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, now that she is finally living hers.

The Procrastinator’s Mind

The Procrastinator’s Mind empathizes with procrastinators and seeks to understand the behavior of procrastination within their reality without judging them. The author gets to the core of the psychology of procrastination and provides practices and solutions that are proven to stop procrastination and inspire the journey toward discipline.

The objective of the book is to put oneself into the shoes of a chronic procrastinator and develop the ideas of why it is important to work and not procrastinate. The book goes through the common traps of thinking that procrastinators experience and breaks these myths from the procrastinator’s point of view and builds a path to discipline.

The author takes a more personal and familiar approach that affects the reader’s whole life and sense of self-respect and not just preach more productivity at work. The book delves deeply into and analyses topics such as self-esteem, fear, emotion, thought, assertiveness, identity, and self-efficacy, and the effects of these elements on procrastination.

At its core, the book categorizes three types of fears: fear of self-esteem conflict, fear of effort, and fear of self-efficacy. These three fears in procrastinators drive them away from work in different situations. The book then moves onto how what we think about aspects such as creativity, laziness, emotion management, belief systems, and discipline affects our procrastination with splendid research based understanding.

B4 Success…The Revolution Within: Develop Your Magical Instinct

“SUCCESS, POWER, HEALTH, WEALTH, FAME,

… AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU DESIRE FOR,

IS HIDDEN WITHIN YOUR MAGICAL INSTINCT!

HAVE YOU DISCOVERED IT YET?”

Life has many folds. Each fold contains numerous dreams, expectations, perceptions and experiences. Dreams prompt us to do something great for the attainment of a greater life. Expectations incite us to embrace related heaps of various emotions. Emotions raise critical influences on somatic and autonomic process within our body and brain. If those emotions, generated within us are upright, they excite our body and brain to work intelligently, thoughtfully and consciously.

But, when you allow your life to be driven by the patterns of your sub-conscious living, your contemporary paradigm over powers your potential wisdom. The result is a steady struggle for basic survival. B4 Success… The Revolution Within, is the deepest dive into your inner-self. It will unfold the greatest magical instinct, hidden within the layers, of your subconscious living. When you discover, develop and raise your magical instinct, you become the owner of endless powers of your mind. That’s the stage when conscious living becomes your habit, and habitual success becomes your nature.

Being Dissatisfied_Not a Satire

If you feel that this book will somehow give you a solution to any of your problems, I am extremely sorry but that’s neither the intent nor the content. In fact, I will be very frank and advise you to stay away from such superficial words like “solution”.

If at all there was any solution to anything in life, what’s the whole struggle all about! Only a handful of people could ever attempt to seek ultimate solutions and they had to give up everything else. When you have nothing, you have no issues or problems or challenges or dissatisfaction. If that sounds like your idea of solution, or anybody’s idea of solution for you, its implementation would result in irrelevance of your existence.

The SECRETS of LIFE

Sri Chakra Yantra – Manifest Anything using the Symbol of Everything

We are fortunate to live at one of most peaceful times in history with the added bonus of leading increasingly comfortable, long and healthy lives. Yet there is a deep sense of dissatisfaction and restlessness in most peoples’ lives as they ask themselves: “Is this all there is to life?”

I have been working as a spiritual healer for more than two decades now and I have come to believe that this ennui and boredom arises out of the complete absence of personal rituals in our modern day lives. Personal rituals, as opposed to community rituals (that serve to offer us a sense of belonging, security and comfort, a feeling of being part of something bigger) are far more important as they give us the ability to find our place in the grander scheme of the Universe.

A personal ritual makes us part of the sacred for it temporarily disengages us from our role in the profane world of humdrum existence and helps us enter into a zone of connecting more closely with the divine.
This book is an endeavour to introduce a personal ritual involving triangular work of Yantra (the geometric pattern of the Sri Chakra as it is considered the mightiest amongst all yantras), Mantra (chanting with specific focus on sounds related to the Sri Chakra) and Tantra (using a specified procedure laid out in a prescribed order).

A personal ritual involving the Sri Chakra can only be embarked upon after gaining a better understanding of its metaphysical aspects which are reflected in the philosophies underlying Shaktism, Tantra, Dasa Mahavidya and Sri Vidya. Once these concepts throw some light on the basis of Sri Chakra worship, we study the nature of sacred geometry and the significance, structure and meaning of the Sri Chakra Yantra. This is followed by two chapters that focus upon the relationship of the human body to the Sri Chakra and the connection of the Pineal Gland to the personal ritual. There is also a brief note on healing and the Sri Chakra.
This is followed by an analysis of the use of sounds in the path to spiritual growth. Special attention is given to the sounds (mantras and stotras) associated with the Sri Chakra Yantra. The next part of the book deals with the role of mudras and contains details about specific mudras that are commonly used as part of the Sri Chakra puja modality. The book then lays out in simple terms the process of the personal ritual and gives details about the initial infusion of energy into the yantra, the method of worship, path to visualisation and meditation on the Sri Chakra.
There has been a huge surge in the popularity of Sri Vidya in recent times and many self-professed gurus are charging huge sums of money to share their knowledge of this esoteric and mysterious subject to eager learners. There are a few books written in English (notable among them are V. Ravi’s “Understanding and Worshipping the Sri Chakra” and S. Shankarnarayanan’s encyclopedic “Sri Chakra”) on the subject but they are aimed at the advanced practitioner and will leave a novice confounded by their profundity and depth.
The author’s main aim writing this book is to offer all the information that a novice is seeking to get him/her on to the practice of Sri Vidya Sadhana and involve in self-learning rather than seek it from external sources. The information is laid out in a non-dogmatic manner keeping in mind practical aspects of modern day living, thereby allowing everyone an opportunity to learn and experience the benefits of the precious Sri Yantra. The process outlined in the book equips the readers with the skills necessary to harness the tremendous cosmic energies available in the Universe and channelize it to make life’s dreams come true.
This book is not meant to be a comprehensive study of the Sri Chakra. In presenting the Sri Chakra Yantra as a tool for self development, the author has kept in mind sensibilities of the modern spiritual seeker, their needs and interests and has desisted from venturing into the realm of mythological references, the inclusion of which would distract and obfuscate from the subject of study.

PHILOSOPHY OF PROF.MUKHOPADHYAY

I am really glad to share my feelings and experience about my Philosophy through this book. It is the gist of the outcome of my fifty six years of observations in few pages. Reading enriches a man, but when the concerned person starts reading the human minds then the reading is coupled with a different dimension. Basically I am an Engineer and in my profession I am a professor of Civil Engineering and my actual designation is Associate Professor. In my life everything happened by accident right from my birth to love for literature. When my mother became pregnant for the second time then it was a pregnancy for unplanned sex of my parents, my parents wanted an abortion, but the concerned doctor prevented the duo from doing so. Same is the case with literature, especially English literature.
I was a student of vernacular medium ( Bengali Medium) till the days of my senior school and even in my college life I didn’t have fluency in English and I loved English, but at the same time I was scared of it and my father and elder brother always used to mock at me for my lack of fluency. After that I completed post graduation in Engineering and even in the days of my post graduation I was not fluent in English.
After completion of post graduation I got few jobs and few of them were Govt. jobs, but I knew that I am born to be a teacher and for that reason I declined those lucrative offers without any second thought, but my father and other family members didn’t like this attitude of mine

Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope

We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.

What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t—and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.

Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before. It’s another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.

THE RISE AND RUIN OF LOGIC

Me, Myself, and Life’s Characters

I am “Thought” the adventurer

Let me tell you a tale about your birth…
Long ago, in a thorough search for more, Logic the separatist broke away from his roots and gave birth to his own children of madness. As Thought lays the foundation, Logic the capitalist begins to Rise and Rule. Hence, the beginning of the here and now.

We have lost our guide while many have turned to spirituality; the big business hoax to reclaim themselves only to find how crippled they are. Hence, it is “Time to fire the Guru.”

Have you ever felt that there was more to life than the 2D images we’re used to seeing? Well, there is. Life is full of colourful 3D characters like Logic, Thought, Fantasy, and Emotions.

This book is also about Greed, Logic the planner and soul destroyer, money, holy phantasmagoria and crass materialism.
What these characters do is to form a synergy, working together like a well-oiled machine to ensure that our lives go smoothly.

Ready to get in touch with them? You’re in luck because I can help you do so! There’s no need to make drastic changes to realise your potential; all that’s required is patience, willingness, and commitment to make the necessary changes. You needn’t feel bad if getting to your desired endpoint takes more time than you’ve budgeted for, simply go one step at a time, and you’ll amaze yourself with your level of measurable progress in no time!

Awareness is the ultimate form of recognising all things around us. It helps us review all that we’ve done, and also shows us new ways to improve our states.

This book will help you figure out all the various ways to be at one with all of life’s characters because that’s the sure-fire way to discover yourself and live a stress-free existence. It’s only when you’re conscious of yourself that you’re able to see the world for what it is, and not what society has painted for us.

With the aid of this manual, you’ll be able to embrace every part of your life and not just the ones you like. We wouldn’t be at peace if we didn’t at least try. 

In summary, this book is: Food for thought and a captivating story about the birth of attitudes. Sit down, enjoy a good read, and be radically transformed.
