Since its initial publication in 1945, people have been moved and inspired by Psychiatrist and Holocaust Survivor Victor Frankl’s extraordinary book, Man’s Search for Meaning. As inspiring as it is heartbreaking, Frankl’s matter-of-fact look at life in a Nazi concentration camp through the lens of his own lived experience will stay with you forever. Rightfully considered a 20th-century classic, Man’s Search for Meaning is a look at how finding meaning in your life can be the literal difference between life and death. Even in the most difficult circumstances imaginable, such as being a prisoner at Auschwitz, finding meaning can give you a reason to keep going and to strive to stay alive. Man’s Search for Meaning takes some of the darkest subject matter of modern history and turns it on its head to make it an inspirational tale of hope and strength. It is an essential book that should be on everyone’s to-read list.

The old saying is that the secret to success isn’t what you know, it’s who you know. Keith Ferrazzi certainly believes this to be true, and with his book Never Eat Alone (co-authored with Tahl Raz), he outlines how valuable an extensive network is to succeed in business and life. Beyond this, he gives a step-by-step guide as to how to start, grow and maintain relationships that can boost your prospects. In his book, Ferrazzi demonstrates how immensely useful building connections can be. His key point is that everyone you know also knows people and therefore presents more opportunities to expand your network and career.

Have you ever wondered why some people are so successful, and others are not? The truth is, they are not born that way. It took them some time and effort to develop habits and skills that made them effective. Those habits and skills reflect some universal principles. They don’t depend on our circumstances. Even better, they can help us achieve so many different things, like good grades, great friendships, money, respect, happiness. But how do you discover those principles? Here’s great news—you don’t have to figure them out all by yourself. Jack Canfield did an awesome job collecting the 20 essential principles for you. His book, The Success Principles, is a kind of a roadmap – or a recipe – that you can follow with confidence. To make it even easier for you to follow this roadmap, we took his 20 principles and distilled them even further. We all have different goals, and your situation might be unique. Luckily, there is a recipe for success that works for everyone. No matter what’s going on in your life right now, as long as you live by these principles, they will take you exactly where you want to be. Before you begin, remember two things. Firstly, the challenges you are facing at the moment are not going to affect your future as much as you think – but the way you react to them will influence it tremendously. Secondly, no one can use these principles for you. It is completely up to you. Are you ready to commit to success?
