    Default Suggested Book reading for lifestyle developement

    Alternate title: Because those that don't proactively read tend to suck at life.

    A sister thread covers magazines and TV shows which showcase lifestyle earned through hard work, discipline, and persistence:
    http://www.warriortalk.com/showthrea...things-in-life

    This one is meant to be a resource for those looking to learn how to aquire and use these traits in a more practical, day-to-day sense.

    While the books listed below focus on various topics, upon reflection the underlying theme seems to be mindset.
    All are available at most book stores.

    General Success Info:

    "Proverbs" by King Solomon
    The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson
    Acres Of Diamonds by Russell H. Conwell
    How To Be Rich by J. Paul Getty
    The Power Of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale
    As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
    The Greatest Salesman In The World by Og Mandino
    (The Greatest Secret In The World includes lesson plans)
    Visioneering by Andy Stanley
    Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz

    Leadership/management:

    How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie
    Developing The Leader Within You
    Developing The Leaders Around You
    The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
    ----All three above by John C. Maxwell

    Finances:
    The Richest Man In Babylon by George S. Clason
    The Millionaire Next Door by Stanley and Danko
    Rich Dad Poor Dad by Kiyosaki

    Marriage (because what good are fat accounts if your home life sucks??):

    The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
    Love And Respect by Eggerichs
    Letters To Philip by Shedd
    Letters To Karen " " (for wives)


    All of these titles have been worth literally more than their weight in gold for us over the last ten years. Perhaps they may prove beneficial to you as well.

    Any further recommendations appreciated.

    As a former Amway/Quixtar franchisor, I'm quite famiilar with many of those titles, and have read Carnegie's How to Win Friends at least three times, and Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad twice, and their lessons never grow old.

    I also recommend Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, and Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul by John Eldredge (the latter captures the warrior spirit that we here at WT advocate so strongly). And oh yeah, Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen and Become Who You Were Born to Be by Brian Souza.
    Hooah, God bless, and Fight On,
