"Kick bad mental habits and toughen yourself up."— Inc. Master your mental strength—revolutionary new strategies that work for everyone from homemakers to soldiers and teachers to CEOs. Everyone knows that regular exercise and weight training lead to physical strength. But how do we strengthen ourselves mentally for the truly tough times? And what should we do when we face these challenges? Or as psychotherapist Amy Morin asks, what should we avoid when we encounter adversity? Through her years counseling others and her own experiences navigating personal loss, Morin realized it is often the habits we cannot break that are holding us back from true success and happiness. Indulging in self-pity, agonizing over things beyond our control, obsessing over past events, resenting the achievements of others, or expecting immediate positive results holds us back. This list of things mentally strong people  don't  do resonated so much with readers that when it was picked up by Forbes.com it received ten million views. Now, for the first time, Morin expands upon the thirteen things from her viral post and shares her tried-and-true practices for increasing mental strength. Morin writes with searing honesty, incorporating anecdotes from her work as a college psychology instructor and psychotherapist as well as personal stories about how she bolstered her own mental strength when tragedy threatened to consume her. Increasing your mental strength can change your entire attitude. It takes practice and hard work, but with Morin's specific tips, exercises, and troubleshooting advice, it is possible to not only fortify your mental muscle but also drastically improve the quality of your life.

5. The Freedom Shortcut: How Anyone Can Generate True Passive Income Online, Escape the 9-5, and Live Anywhere


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Business & Money - August 2021

Ever dream of kissing your 9-5 job goodbye? Most believe that 'college - get a job - retire at 65' is the only option in life, including us. So that's what we "chose" to do. About a week into working our first full-time jobs, something became extremely obvious.  This sucks. We couldn't envision a reality where we'd truly be happy spending the majority of my waking days working hard at a job to help someone else's dreams come true. What do we get in exchange? A cute little paycheck that can just cover rent, food, and other bills we need to survive. Call us naive and entitled, but we swore to ourselves that we'd never settle for a life like that. A few years later, we're here to share the tale of exactly how we escaped the rat race and how we've helped thousands of others do the same. The Freedom Shortcut is your step-by-step guide to creating your own income online so you never have to rely on a job to get paid. And I'm not talking about the kind of income where you grind out 10 hours days behind your laptop to make a little bit of cash. I'm talking about the kind of income where you don't open your computer for 6 months to travel all around the world, yet deposits continue to hit your bank account every month on repeat. That's passive income. Warren Buffett said it best - "If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die." The Freedom Shortcut walks you through 6 modules: The Foundations - Everything you need to know about how passive income and the business model works. Choose - Choosing your niche Outsource - Outsourcing the hard work to experts Launch - Launching for maximum sales Multiply - Multiplying your income streams Discoveries - What We Learned From Helping 10,000+ Students The power this book holds is the equivalent to that of a college degree , except it'll take you months instead of years to start making money, you won't accumulate any debt, and the end result will be a life of freedom and autonomy rather than a life of being overworked and underpaid at a 9-5. Scroll up and hit the buy button now to discover the new method thousands have used to shortcut their way to freedom.

6. The 48 Laws of Power


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Business & Money - August 2021

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy  New York Times  bestseller   is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that  People  magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.   Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package,  The 48 Laws of Power  is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

7. Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Business & Money - August 2021

A fascinating exploration of how computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives, helping to solve common decision-making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mind All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades. And the solutions they've found have much to teach us. In a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, acclaimed author Brian Christian (who holds degrees in computer science, philosophy, and poetry, and works at the intersection of all three) and Tom Griffiths (a UC Berkeley professor of cognitive science and psychology) show how the simple, precise algorithms used by computers can also untangle very human questions. They explain how to have better hunches and when to leave things to chance, how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others. From finding a spouse to finding a parking spot, from organizing one's inbox to understanding the workings of human memory, Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living.

9. Negotiation as a Martial Art: Techniques to Master the Art of Human Exchange


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Business & Money - August 2021

"This book is a must-read for business leaders, lawyers, and policymakers who hope to be skilled in creative negotiation and dispute resolution to accomplish their and their clients' needs.” President, St. Louis Mediation Project Distinguished Fellow, International Academy of Mediators, Best Lawyers in America in Mediation, 2010-present We all negotiate. Put more accurately, we are always negotiating. There is always something we want that we do not have. There is always something we have that others want. Those human transactions are very human. The process of bartering, whether it be in billion-dollar transactions or over the use of the family car, is a deeply human activity. But like many soft skills, we don't teach it. We consider it something that we have to just learn by doing it. And it is true that trial and error is the basic teacher of negotiation. But it doesn't have to be that way. Negotiation is a social activity that involves disciplines like language, observation, reaction, listening, speaking, storytelling, humor, and sensing. The number one thing you bring to every negotiation is you. This book helps you understand how these various behaviors and disciplines come to play and therefore how you can become a better negotiator. The book helps you develop the mindset and tools to become a great negotiator for yourself and for others. Classical teaching on negotiation teaches separating the people from the problem. But the people are often the problem and the key to accomplishing your goals and theirs. We express our desires as "I want this or that." As a result, we are always talking about the "what." As people, as humans, we often don't even really know what we want. This book teaches you to get behind your "what" and theirs. To accomplish this, you need to understand the "why" not just the "what." It is the "why" that will help you understand the "what" and adjust it accordingly. If you think you will get what you want by just being tough and demanding, this book isn't for you. If you want to succeed in dealing with those people or want to develop a negotiation style where you get what you want and people want to deal with you again and again, then this book is for you. The author draws upon principles of martial arts (designed around dealing with more powerful opponents) to help develop your understanding of negotiations. In a battle of water and stone, water wins.

10. Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Business & Money - August 2021

"These guys are intense. And they bring that same fire to their narration in the audiobook. Listen to these insanely competent SEAL officers tell you exactly how to make a team successful through their firsthand experiences in business and combat." ( The Hustle ) An updated edition of the blockbuster best-selling leadership audiobook that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life. Combat, the most intense and dynamic environment imaginable, teaches the toughest leadership lessons, with absolutely everything at stake. Jocko Willink and Leif Babin learned this reality first-hand on the most violent and dangerous battlefield in Iraq. As leaders of SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, their mission was one many thought impossible: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a violent, insurgent-held city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping, firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories, they learned that leadership - at every level - is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails. Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training to pass on their harsh lessons learned in combat to help forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After leaving the SEAL Teams, they launched a company, Echelon Front, to teach those same leadership principles to leaders in businesses, companies, and organizations across the civilian sector. Since that time, they have trained countless leaders and worked with hundreds of companies in virtually every industry across the U.S. and internationally, teaching them how to develop their own high-performance teams and most effectively lead those teams to dominate their battlefields. Since it’s release in October 2015, Extreme Ownership has revolutionized leadership development and set a new standard for literature on the subject. Required listening for many of the most successful organizations, it has become an integral part of the official leadership training programs for scores of business teams, military units, and first responders. Detailing the mindset and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult combat missions, Extreme Ownership demonstrates how to apply them to any team or organization, in any leadership environment. A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.
