Self-help books seem to be one of those book genres that people either love or hate, there is no in between. The thing is, there are so many self-help books out there that could make a real difference if you read them.
Within self-help there are many smaller sub-genres you can get into, depending on where you need the help. Each of these books has information in it that can help you learn to love yourself again.
What Is Self-Love?
Self-love allows you to accept yourself, love yourself. It reminds you to take care of yourself and the importance of you being you. Self-love is not an act of selfishness. Instead, it's caring for yourself, nurturing yourself, and loving yourself.
Self-love boosts your mood and your confidence. Self-love means less anxiety and more happiness. The thing is, it needs to be unconditional – you need to love even your flaws.
Creating Self-Love Books
If you want to love yourself, find happiness, discover your true path, and maybe even reach enlightenment, here are a few self-love books that can help you on the way.
1. Awaken the Giant Within
Awaken the Giant Within is a book that teaches you how to take control of your life. When you're in control, it's much easier to accept yourself and love yourself. The author, Tony Robbins, has been helping people be successful for more than 30 years.
In this book, you will learn to be in control of your emotions, your money, your relationships, and your life in general.
2. The Secret
Rhonda Byrne's The Secret first came out in 2006 and quickly became a bestseller. It did this because it was a book that was teaching people how to attain the lives they wanted – whether they wanted wealth, happiness, or love.
Now it's no longer a secret that you can turn your thoughts into things and get the things in life you want.
