20 Must-Read Motivational Books: The Ultimate List

As an entrepreneur, sometimes we get in our own way. Don’t you agree? The self-doubt. The lack of trust. The isolation. It can truly hold us back – to the point of no return! The best thing we can do is maintain our motivation and keep our heads clear. Stay away from all of the negative Nancys (they are all on Facebook by the way) and just DO YOU. I found that constantly reading self-help / motivational business books really do the trick as well. In fact, they don’t always have to be business related. They just need to get you to open up to the possibility of greatness. You can be anything you want and more – if only you believe in yourself.

Here is a list of 20 motivational books that can help you do just that! Shake off the self-doubt and start each and every day with a new sense of purpose and inspiration. Do me a favor – when you start feeling that buzz, spread the wealth around!! The community needs it! Entrepreneurs are the hardest working people in show business. Even a small amount of positive energy will go far in our crowd. 🙂
