10. Big Magic van Elizabeth Gilbert
‘A must read for anyone hoping to live a creative life… I dare you not to be inspired to be brave, to be free, and to be curious.’
From the worldwide bestselling author of Eat Pray Love: the path to the vibrant, fulfilling life you’ve dreamed of.
Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years.

With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering.
She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.
9. Be Obsessed Or Be Average van Grant Cardone
Before Grant Cardone built five successful companies (and counting), became a multimillionaire, and wrote bestselling books… he was broke, jobless, and drug-addicted.
Grant had grown up with big dreams, but friends and family told him to be more reasonable and less demanding. If he played by the rules, they said, he could enjoy everyone else’s version of middle class success. But when he tried it their way, he hit rock bottom.
Then he tried the opposite approach. He said NO to the haters and naysayers and said YES to his burning, outrageous, animal obsession. He reclaimed his obsession with wanting to be a business rock star, a super salesman, a huge philanthropist. He wanted to live in a mansion and even own an airplane.
Obsession made all of his wildest dreams come true. And it can help you achieve massive success too. As Grant says, we’re in the middle of an epidemic of average. The conventional wisdom is to seek balance and take it easy. But that has really just given us an excuse to be unexceptional.

Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive

But how do you evaluate options and move forward without getting stuck? Jenny Blake’s solution: it’s about small steps, not big leaps—and the answer is already right under your feet. This book will teach you how to pivot from a base of your existing strengths.

Het leidde tot de hypothese dat werkelijk succes vooral ontstaat door een speciale mix van volledige overgave en de vastberadenheid om te werken aan je langetermijndoelen: grit.

3. Disrupted van Dan Lyons
Now in paperback, Dan Lyons’ instant New York Times bestseller–the “hilarious and eye-opening” (Business Insider) memoir about life at a tech start-up that the Los Angeles Times declared as “the best book about Silicon Valley today.”
For twenty-five years Dan Lyons was a magazine writer–until one Friday morning when he received a phone call: Poof. His job no longer existed. Fifty years old and with a wife and two young kids, Dan was, in a word, screwed. Then an idea hit. He had long reported on the tech bonanza. Why not join it? HubSpot, flush with $100 million in venture capital, offered Dan a pile of stock options. What could go wrong?
With a cast of characters that includes fad-chasing venture capitalists, “content farm” bloggers and sales bros, social climbers and sociopaths, Disrupted is “an eye-opening and gut-busting account of the maddening world of startup excess, hubris and groupthink” (Mashable) and “you couldn’t have written a tastier ending, even for HBO” (Dwight Garner, New York Times).
