Way of The Peaceful Warrior —
by Dan Millman.
You might have seen the movie to this book already, but if you haven’t then I highly recommend you get your hands on both. Way of The Peaceful Warrior describes Dan Millman’s early life meeting a very interesting man he came to know as Socrates.
The main part of why this book is so important is because of the lessons it describes at every twist and turn. The revelations Dan Millman explains throughout the book are clear and easy to understand and something you will carry with you for a long time. I have come to revisit both the movie and the book over and over again, and have found new perspectives, mindset shifts and life lessons every time.

Learned Optimism —
by Martin P. Seligman.
Martin Seligman is a psychologist who started his 25 years of research by looking at what makes people bounce back from failures. This research took him from research on Depression, to Pessimism, over “learned helplessness”, then to Optimism as a whole, and, eventually to “learned optimism”.
With more Depressions and Anxiety disorders on the rise than ever before it is important we learn ways to deal with our sadness and our learned helplessness. Martin Seligman does not idolize Optimism, instead he shares how to use it effectively while also allowing room for Pessimism and negativity. He explains everything in a very scientific approach and shares step-by-step processes of how you can change your mindset. Optimism may not be always the best choice, but if you can learn to be realistically optimistic, why wouldn’t you?!
