7 Must Read Books That Will Change Your Life Forever | Divya Toshniwal |

Books have always been my best friends - No Complaints, No demands. They just stay with you when you need them the most. They enlighten you on so many things that you otherwise would have probably never thought about. Being a total bookaholic there are lots of books that I keep suggesting to my near and dear ones for reading . Here however I am listing those 7 books that made a huge impact on me and my personality and changed my life forever.

1. The Secret & The Power by Rhonda Byrne

Though these are 2 different books, I have clubbed under 1 title reason being their base concept is the same-' Law of Attraction'. The book contains various inspiring tales on how a negative belief system hampers your progress and a positive belief system can change your life. It talks about the power of gratitude and emotions. It provides you with various tasks that you can do to turn your life around. In the Power, the concept has been taken a notch above . Here the author is talking about When the only thing every person craves for is power. Power to control everything , power to control everybody. Power over parents,power over kids, power over teachers,power over students, power over employees, power over customers, power over boss and everything else. How can you become actually powerful? What will give you the power ? The author provides you the ultimate key to power which is Love. A beautiful explanation has been provided as to why Love is the key to Power. I do not even remember how many times I have read this book and how many times I have watched the documentary , it still never fails to inspire me.

2. Who Moved My Cheese by Dr. Spencer Johnson

This is like a children's fable , a story with a moral. This book has been fun to read as it takes you back to your childhood where you used to read stories on animals and then reach to a moral at the end.However, the moral that we reach to at the end of this story is something that most adults fail to understand. The book is about how to deal with change , how to accept change and above all how to identify that things are going to change now and be prepared for it.

3. Why Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus by John Gray

A practical guide to relationships with every logic of why and how. This book tells you all the mistakes that you have been doing in your relationships and solutions to how you can avoid them or correct them. It gives an amazing fictional backdrop of how species from two different planets landed on earth and a beautiful lesson of why we should be struggling to make our partner like ourselves because they are a different species all together . It is a must read for every couple.

4.Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T.Kiyosaki 

In this ultimate financial guide for anyone and everyone Robert T. Kiyosaki has given life changing concepts on building your wealth. The explanation on assets and liabilities has changed my view entirely about how to look at them. A very shocking comparison is how we consider things like cars and house as assets and how they become our biggest liabilities. It explains lots of tools on how you can work on increasing your real assets and minimize your liabilities . It explains how you can generate an automatic recurring income through your assets . This book is a must read for anyone and everyone. Start early so that you don't have to work for money and so that you can make money work for you.

5. The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo

This is about a journey of a boy in search of treasure . It explores so many aspects of desires and dreams, of giving up and standing again, of love and sacrifice, of waiting and achieving , of life and death , of everything in the journey of life. It is a story for the ones who wanna just read it as a story and it is a legend , an epic for anyone who reads it in depth and get to the true meaning of it. Always follow your dreams . They take you through a journey worth taking.

6. The 7 habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey

This book needs no introduction and has been always on the list of best books for self-help. Each and every habit in this book is a life-changer on its own and if you can pick up all of these there is no way anyone can stop you to have your desired life. It's easy to read but tough to practice. Though a lot of practical ways have been given in the book but it takes one more thing to actually practice these habits - Strong Desire. My world changed on the 3rd habit.

7. Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L.James

A book that has been infamously famous (at least in my country) and which people avoid to talk about due to the erotic scenes well explained. But this book takes us through a beautiful love story that is unique in itself. Every love story either ends on the two lovers meeting, parting their ways or dying. But this is not what love stories in reality are. The story of Ana and Christian tells you what exactly love is like. It is to live together. The toughest part of a love story is not coming together but to stay in love while being together.

An innocent girl who knew nothing about it walked down the path of darkness, just because she knew that a person there is holding her hands. She knew she will be happy. That is trust. Love is based on that trust. A boy is ready to change himself just to see the girl happy and with him. That is compromise . Love builds on that compromise. A free bird is ready to understand the controlling nature of her love. Love stays with them because of that understanding. It's not porn for readers (as claimed by many), it's a rare love story that takes you to the reality of love.Fifty shades is the story that brings you out of the world of fairy tales and takes you to another fairy tale. Yes , this reality is the best fairy tale.
