5 Motivating books to kick start your day

Books that are based on interviews with successful people virtually tell the same stories with the same life lessons. These are the kind of books that are based on personal anecdotes. Motivational books give you a perspective on the world, culture, and yourself rather than letting you dive into conventional self-help novels. This is one of the few things all successful people and leaders have in common. You can do the same if you want to find inspiration and wisdom to move your life forward.

Following are the books that do not require much of your time to read and you can complete them over the weekend:
