I love Jordan Peterson and his work. You can find out more about him on his YouTube channel. His lectures and talks are awesome and inspiring. I recently read his book 12 Rules for Life. One of my favourite self improvement books because he chose relevant topics in which you can and should have control in a way, form yourself and your perspective. I cried, I smiled, I laughed. Just please read it! You won't regret it! It helped me through some really deep and bad periods during the winter.

The courage to be disliked. It is a book of Adler, which reminds me how to be brave when people have different opinions and don’t be afraid when others dislike you. You are the only one who can control your own mind

I honestly wouldn't recommend a self-help book because I don't think there are any that will truly help someone. I would rather recommend a biography of someone who has gone through the rough times that we all go through and has come out on top. My personal recommendation is I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons by Kevin Hart. It's such a humbling and inspiring story with lots of great lessons we can all learn. It perfectly combines real life hardship with humor, inspiration, philosophy, and motivation. This was his first book and I wouldn't say that he's my favorite author but I definitely enjoyed every moment of it. It made me realize I'm not the only one that is going through things and more importantly that others have gotten through tough times and rose above their obstacles. It truly motivated me while also making me laugh. You can find the book just about anywhere but I recommend the Audible version which he narrated himself. Hope this helps and if you decide to read it, enjoy!

Atomic Habits by James Clear. I find a lot of self help books try to be funny and try to relate to you too much. It’s annoying. James Clear is just straight to the point and doesn’t have to rely on being funny. It’s a penguin book, too, so I guess that means it’s much better quality.

The book is all about how to build up habits and we do this by starting small – really small. It’s a really good framework.

His writing is very good, plain English and very concise.

Can find it easily online. It’s even on audiobook.

Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Why? I first read this book in the early 90s and found I could do the things Stephen R Covey teaches. I do not know what his background was before he wrote the book. I read it because the title came up from three different people I respect a great deal in less than two weeks. This book is special because it has practical practicable instructions that if followed actually work. Covey is not my favorite author. I do not have a favorite. In the last few years I have purchased all my copies on Amazon. It is a book I often give young people.

Five love languages by Gary Chapman. This book is about how you feel loved the most like when someone buys you a gift it means more to you than when they do you a favor or vice versa. Everyone feels loved the most in certain ways and he breaks it down into five ways and all five show love but usually there is one or two that show it most to each individual. And using that type is like speaking that person's love language. If a person really values physical gifts and the person they are with only wants to spend quality time together, the first person might feel like the other one doesn't love them when they sit around at home all day and never brings them home a gift or makes them anything but the second person is showing love the way they know best by being with the first person as much as possible, spending quality time together. The principles work for loved ones, family, friends, anyone. The book is about understanding the other person's differences and being able to give them what doesn't come easily or natural to you so that you both can receive and give love the way it matters most, and also to help you be grateful and accepting of the other ways people show love using their love language.
