In this blog post, I’m going to share with you three of my fave books to help you be more successful.

Now, I’m talking about success in the generic sense. For example, it could be success in your relationships, your health, in your business, etc. In other words, it’s whatever ‘success’ means to you.

Because of this, these books won’t just help business owners and entrepreneurs, they’re applicable to everyone!

I am going to go through these books starting with my least-recommend and finishing with my most-recommended, but please take that with a pinch of salt because I have rated all three of these books 10/10 and I think they’re all brilliant!

Ready? Let go!

In third place: ‘Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?’ by Ben Hunt-Davis and Harriet Beveridge

Will it Make the Boat Go Faster? by Ben Hunt-Davis & Harriet Beveridge

This book details the story of the British Olympic Rowing team and how they went from being pretty much also-rans to winning a gold medal at the Sydney Olympics.

The authors explain how those tactics and strategies can be used to help improve your own life and to generate more success.

This is a great read containing some extremely useful takeaways.

In second place: ‘The One Thing’ by Gary W. Peller and Jay Papasan

The One Thing by Gary Keller & Jay Papasan Book Review Roseanna Sunley

I talk about this book all the time! I LOVE it!

The underpinning message of the book is to find and focus on your one most important task every day. It sounds very simple and basic, although it’s anything but.

The book is packed with so many useful takeaways that are the real keys to success. If you haven’t already read this book, you really do need to get a copy of it today!

In first place: ‘The Compound Effect’ by Darren Hardy (Jump start your income, your life, your success)

The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy Roseanna Sunley Business Book Reviews

The Compound Effect focuses on your habits and demonstrates how they compound.

The author explains how the small things that you do every day can compound to generate big results – both good and bad.

The reason why I’ve awarded this book first place (and it was a very close call) is because this book is the shortest read and probably the easiest one to implement.

We all know that reading books is only half of the battle, you have to execute on what you learn, and I believe that anyone could execute the lessons that this book contains, and that’s what makes it so valuable.

What books would you recommend?

So, there you have it!

Those are the three books that I would recommend for anyone who wanted to become more successful, regardless of the area that they want to be more successful in.

If you would recommend any other books, please share them with us in the comments section below. I haven’t read every book out there, so it’s great to hear of other greats books that I need to add to my reading list.
