20 Self Help Books For 20 Somethings (For Men And Women)

Most people think of their 20’s as the best years of their lives. But if you actually think back to those years carefully, I’m sure you’ll remember some hard times. From discovering how to function and act like an adult to heartbreak. These are the 20 best self-help books for 20 something.

#1 The All of Everything by Laura Saltman

No Title

No Description

From the author:

Manifestation. Meditation. Soul Cycle. We are a world awakening and already this generation of 20 somethings (and even younger) are beginning to resonate with the concept that we are all one. We are a collective consciousness who think, act and move as one alongside our individualness. 

My book series, The All of Everything, The All of the All and the forthcoming The All That Is are a definitive guide to life and why we are all here. It explains our humanness in a way which cannot be ignored and explores the reasons why we fail, why our lives take tragic turns and quite literally answers the question of what is the meaning of life. 

Written as a Q&A with the “God” portion that lives inside all of us, it follows my journey as a skeptical entertainment reporter (who suffered through multiple tragedies) through the process of enlightenment. It’s messy. It’s frustrating, but ultimately it transforms me and these books are meant to be found by others awaiting spiritual transformation.

#2 Influence by Robert Cialdini

No Title

No Description

I wish I had read this book when I was in my 20's when I was in college. This book makes the otherwise boring topic of Human Psychology very interesting. Using real-life examples it shows how we are influenced by our surroundings, how people & companies observe our behavior and then use it to influence our decision making. This book will equip the reader with the knowledge to recognize when these factors are in play and will help in making better decisions both in personal and professional life.

#5 How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie

It's the classic book, but its golden and a must read for someone in your 20's.

A must read!

#9 Are You Emotionally Ready to Retire? By Beverly Mann Lessard

No Title

No Description

Are You Emotionally Ready To Retire? It's not a question that only Baby Boomers are asking, but also a question that all ages should be asking.

What author Beverly Lessard discovered through her own experiences as well as those of the people she interviewed, was that to be happily retired required more than a party and sleeping until ten o'clock the next morning. As one man remarked, you need to retire TO something, not FROM something. And the happiest retirees did just that.

The interviews in this book include those from people who will never retire and those who will retire as soon as possible; people who were truly experiencing the golden years and those who found themselves returning to work.

By reading the stories which relay the wide range of retiring experiences, people who are counting the days, weeks or even years until that magical date, will discover that if they fill their lives with all the right stuff, they too will be ready.

An ever-present problem for people who face retirement

#10 Power Your Happy by Lisa Sugar

No Title

No Description

I probably like this book because it was written by one of my idols, but again, like Jen Sincero, Lisa Sugar has a conversational way of writing that makes you feel like you can set attainable goals and eventually achieve them. She also makes it feel like finding success in the diluted market that is internet publishing might be possible.

#13 The Four Doors by Paul Evans

No Title

No Description

It's not the typical here's three steps to doing this better or do this and earn more money kind of self-help book. It's about discovering your true purpose and how to fulfill it regardless of what you do for a living. If you're looking for a step-by-step self-improvement plan, this is not your book. If you want to find more in life and add more to the world, I'd highly recommend The Four Doors.

#14 The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

No Title

No Description

I read The Miracle Morning in one night (it's a short read) and woke up at 5:30 am the next day and continued it for the month of August. I completed more deals in the first 16 days of August than all the months combined since I became an agent earlier this year. I ended up finishing in the top 5 for rentals in my company for the month of August.

The reason The Miracle Morning was different than any other book or method I've read was 1) It gave actionable steps to follow to become a morning person that actually made total sense to me 2). It gave reasons why it's difficult for people (like me) to be a morning person and why Hal's method works.

Basically, it didn't get me out of bed in the morning with inspirational quotes and self-help mumbo-jumbo. It basically laid out why I wasn't able to get out of bed and what it took to get out of bed and how to sustain it. I wish my 20-year old self had read this a decade earlier.”

#18 20 Something 20 Everything by Christine Hassler

No Title

No Description

I was feeling a lot of pressure and anxiety about finishing college, entering my career, and fully supporting myself without the help of my parents. I was also thinking about going back to school to get my masters within the next year or so and I was not sure what direction to go in.

This book helped me realize that I was not alone and there are many other women going through the same experience. It gives many examples from other women experiencing this “quarter-life crisis” and how they worked through it. The advice and stories are things that I still think about, three years after reading this book.

#20 Rich Bitch by Nicole Lapin

No Title

In this New York Times bestseller, Nicole Lapin shows women how to take charge of their lives by taking charge of their money. She lays out a 12-Step Plan in which she shares her experiences—mistakes and all—of getting her own finances in order. She talks to you not like a lecturer but as your friend. And even though money is typically an “off-limits” conversation, nothing is off-limits here. 

Rich Bitch rehabs whatever bad money habits you might have and provides a plan you can not only sustain, but also thrive on. You won’t feel deprived but rather inspired to go after the rich life you deserve, and confident enough to call yourself a rich bitch.
