Top 10: Books To Read By Age 20

I’ll be the first to admit it… I used to hate reading. I found every way around it in school through sparknotes, hope the teacher would read our assigned chapters out loud in class, or just show up unprepared and hope for the best. When I stopped trying to read what everyone was telling me to, and read what I wanted to, I found that each book on this list has changed my life.

“…I found that each book on this list has changed my life.”

 

10. Relentless by Tim Grover

If you need a kick in the ass, I recommend picking up this book. If you love basketball or want to be the greatest of all time at whatever it is you do, this your time will be well spent holding onto every word.

9. The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Peale

I love reading about different ways the law of attraction is explained. Here, Peale writes about manifesting your thoughts into their physical equivalent. Essentially, the book can be summed up in five words, it’s about the power of positive thinking.

8. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

This may be the longest book on the list, but each chapter is just as important as the next. If you’ve read it, let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

7. Paradigms by Joel Barker

Hell yes. This book really demonstrates the advantages of understanding how you think. When you change your paradigms, your possibilities change with it.

“When the rules change, the whole world can change.”

6. The ABCs of Success by Bob Proctor

Damn Bobby P, back at it again with an amazing novel. I think I read this book in a matter of hours and called up a few of my friends and business parters immediately after, stressing how badly they needed to get this.

5. Third Circle Theory by Secret Entourage

Read until you understand the diagram on the cover. It might take you until the end, but I guarantee you’ll never see it the same way.

4. The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz

I got sunburned the day I took that picture. Since I have it in front of me while I’m writing this, I’ll type a quote from the book,

“The how-to-do-it always comes to the person who believes he can do it.”

3. The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

This book really puts into perspective why we do things. For anyone interested in business, advertising, or understanding why people do certain things, give it a quick read.

2. Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill

Some authors, like Napoleon Hill, I study in depth. His first book I ever read was Think and Grow Rich, and I have another one of his, The Master Key to Riches, sitting on a shelf right above me.

1. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

While every other book on this list can change how you think or lift you to greater levels of success, The Power of Now gives all of it so much more meaning and helps teach the reader how to live in the moment, find your purpose, and gain the greatest amount of fulfillment possible.
