10 Motivational Books That Actually Motivate

 
 
 
As George Eliot once said, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” Maybe, but a brutal recession and its dreary aftermath have made inspiration a scarce commodity. Working harder and longer has taken its toll, and achieving that all-important work-life balance seems nearly impossible. If that sounds like you, it’s probably time to take a step back. We’ve compiled a list of 10 motivational books that can help you get back on track, both in your professional and personal lives. If you’re looking for guidance in leadership and business success, Warren Buffett, Rudy Giuliani and Bill George have some ideas to consider. If you’re seeking guidance for your everyday life, then look no further than these works by Nelson Mandela, Norman Vincent Peale and Peter Barton. Some of these books will give you the advice you need to move forward. Others will show you how to make the most of difficult personal circumstances. All of them will offer perspectives and stories that can help you restart your engines.
