Inspirational Books For The End Of The Year:
1. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I feel like any inspirational book list is incomplete without The Alchemist. This book changed my life in many ways. The Alchemist is based on the protagonist Santiago who travels to the Egyptian Pyramids in order to fulfill his dream. He feels as though his dream is a prophecy and hence follows along to find a hidden treasure. The strong message the book portrays is that it shows the power of following your dreams. This book serves as an incredible representation of the law of attraction. If there is one book you should read it is and will always be The Alchemist.
2. The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale
While reading this book, I realized just how important having a positive mindset is. The power of positive thinking not only demonstrates how to create positive thoughts but also shares many stories in which positive thinking changed people’s life. If you are an atheist you might have a hard time reading this book as it continuously mentions The Bible. However, I still recommend you to read this book and change the references of God to anything you believe in. Your mind has great powers, cherish them. Reading this book will help you start the new year with a whole new set of thoughts.
3. The Spy by Paulo Coelho
The Spy is yet another beautiful book by Paulo Coelho. The genre of this book is a little different compared to the rest of the books. The Spy follows the life of Mata Hari, a woman who was killed in Paris because she was assumed to be a Spy for the Germans in the WWI. This book is inspirational because of the hardships Mata Hari encounters in her life and the manner in which she accepts herself. As a woman, I felt incredibly empowered while reading this book.
4. Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht
A book about branding and marketing written by Aliza Licht a.k.a. the DKNY PR Girl. This public relations expert created a book explaining how you can create a brand and stand out in front of the media. Leave Your Mark is an insider’s guide to the PR world and is especially interesting for those interested in fashion. I recommend this book if you are just starting out your career because it has several tips about building a good resume and presenting yourself. Overall, one of the most inspirational books if you want to “make it” in the real world.

If you are the kind of person that requires a daily dose of inspiration this book is for you.

The book aims to give people the chance to read a little something every day to make their day better. The best part, however, is that the book has a cutout of affirmations at the end.

10. The Bible by Various Authors
The Bible has been used as the book of wisdom for many years. Most religious texts have pretty similar teachings, therefore, if you are not of the Christian faith pick up a text from your religion. I believe that religion should never bind us and that people should be open-minded in allowing all wisdom into their life no matter where it’s coming from. So, in my opinion, you can pick up The Bible even if that is not your faith. The Bible is one of the most inspirational books in history because it reiterates the importance of having positive thoughts. The text emphasizes believing in the higher power (any higher power if you do not believe in God) and allowing it to support you in your endeavors. Life will be as you believe it will be, have faith in yourself and in your goals and the universe will support you in achieving those goals.
So girls, go get yourself some hot coco and enjoy the reading time. Remember, always give yourself time to learn. Your life will be as beautiful as you make it, work on it and keep dreaming big.
