Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man
This iconic book turned film was the talk of the town for some time. Written by Steve Harvey, this international best seller celebrates the ever changing, fast paced lifestyle that many women lead. Along with that, it also expresses his confusion as to why so many go-getting women stillstruggle in the dating scene.
Commitment is often a huge issue for men, leaving many women perplexed and believing they are the problem. Well, Steve is here to tell you… you ARE the problem! Instead of going straight to the source (men) for advice, women ask other women and, according to Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, that is all wrong!
You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life
This book has been described as ‘you listening to your wise best friend give advice’. Unlike the others, this book focuses on self-help, giving you short, to the point advice to apply and alter your life.
Jen Sincero, author, success coach and motivational speaker, delivers 27 chapters of stories and advice touching on:
- Identifying and changing the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviours that stop you from getting what you want
- Creating a life you totally love and creating it now
- Making some damn money already. The kind you’ve never made before
It may not be the easiest pill to swallow, but it may be the medicine you need to change your life.
The Tao of Dating
This book is often described as the smart women’s guide to dating and we can see why. This book could easily fall into the self-love category as author, Ali Binazir, encourages readers to ‘Be The Light’.
The book heavily focusses on the law attraction, not necessarily in the same way other self-help book. Binazir talks about the power of elevating and appreciating others, as well as how, in turn, that energy impowers and lifts you up – this genuinely sounds enlightening.
Basically, what you put in, is what you get out. Don’t underestimate the power of being nice!
In no particular order, those are the 5 most read/listened to books on the market. Dating books may not be your thing, but a bit of self-love never hurt anybody.
