15 Best Books About Positive Thinking Update 05/2022

When I think about positivity, I think about how to have a positive attitude and how to keep it. I don’t want to think about pretending the world is fine. I am not. Besides, very few people think that everything is fine now, so there’s not much risk of that. Even though, this list of the best positive thinking books isn’t just about how to think positive or books about positivity in general (or on self-care per se, but you can check out this and this for self-care or this for motivation).

While positive thinking is good in the short term, very few people can stay positive in the face of any and all problems, no matter how big or small. When it comes to work, it doesn’t just need to be done every day. I’ve chosen these positive thinking books because they show a range of ways to keep that work going. Hopefully, they will make you more positive and help you keep going, no matter how hard things are going for you.

Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good by Tina Turner

I think Tina Turner is one of the best musicians alive today. The Buddhist philosophy that Turner learned in her 30s helped her build the happy life she has now in her 80s. She talks about it in her new book. There are some ideas in the book that will help you become truly happy. However, this isn’t just because you think positive thoughts. If you can’t get through what you’re facing now, Turner says the only way to do this is to keep going, no matter how hard it seems. If you only read one book on this list, choose this one.

This is a book that you can read quickly. A lot of them are short, but they get right to the point. Perez has a color-coded system on the side of each entry that shows things like gratitude, growth, or motivation. This system is on the side of each entry. However, this isn’t the kind of book you have to read from start to finish. Her hope is that you will find these short entries, well, inspiring.

Harvard Business School professor: This one will show you how to use your problems to your advantage. You’ll learn how to make them work in your favor. In the beginning, there is a short story to get you interested. This is a typical business book with a quick story to get you interested. “edge” also stands for “enrich, delight, guide and effort,” which Huang goes into more detail about in her book, which you can buy here. Even though I don’t always like this kind of writing, I think it’s worth giving it a try because it gives a constructive, clearly defined way to think positive.

Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink

It’s a slim book that will make you smile. This is what Rentzenbrink says about her love of reading and how some books have become her favorite ones. It’s a good book to read in a quiet place, and it’s even better when it’s read aloud (at least for me). Take a look at this if the rest of the world is making your day rain.

The Power of Chōwa: Finding Your Inner Strength Through the Japanese Concept of Balance and Harmony by Akemi Tanaka

Tanaka wants to spread the idea of chwa, which means harmony and balance, instead of just positive thinking. Some people are looking for ways to feel the kind of calm and equilibrium Tanaka talks about. If that’s what you need right now, try her method. It includes thinking about the self and others, and you can make changes as you go.

Deep Kindness by Houston Kraft

For people who haven’t heard of this author, Houston Kraft was the leader of a group of 1,800 students at his high school. There were only two rules: every single day, meet someone new. Because this work made him so excited to start another group in college to talk about service, kindness, and giving back to others, he started another group there, too! This led him to speak at more than 600 events in the U.S. about the importance of being kind. The book gives advice on how to change the way we think about kindness so that it’s something we can all do on a regular basis. On your positive thinking journey, Kraft gives you ways to think about others in a way that will undoubtedly help you as well.

I am Grapeful: All The Good Thymes I Want To Thank You For by Dillon and Kale Sprouts

Because I like the title. A book called I am Grapeful might be a good way to make sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously when we don’t want to. This “little book of upbeet and adorkable fruit and vegetable puns” is sure to make anyone who likes to laugh a little bit happy. Look at that cover.

This is another book that gives practical advice on how to make the world a better place by making the most money. It combines both psychology and philosophy in a way that is easy to understand. A section called “Creating More Value for You and the World” is a good place to start. Bazerman wants to give usable advice that includes both the individual’s positive thinking and impact, as well as how this can affect the society and world we live in.

Humankind A Hopeful History by Rutger Bregman

What if people aren’t as bad as we think? This is the main idea of Bregman’s book, and it’s worth a look if this premise sounds interesting to you. When you’re trying to think positively about yourself, why not try it out for the whole world as well? I added this book to my list of the best positive thinking books because it doesn’t just focus on one person. It’s easy to separate ourselves from the rest of the world and think that we aren’t connected to our environments, even though this isn’t true. Not at all. As living things, we are linked to the places we live in and the people we live with. There is a book by Bregman that could help you see the people who are around you in a more hopeful, positive way.

I Tried To Change So You Don’t Have To by Loni Love

It could be that some of your positive thinking is going to help you accept yourself more. If that’s the case, Love’s memoir is a good place to start, so read it. When she talks about her life, it’s a lot of fun to listen. You can also pick up some ideas for your own positive thinking while you’re at it! The title says some of her life lessons are about accepting yourself, and some are about change, but not always the kind that people expect.

Here For It: Or How To Save Your Soul In America by R. Eric Thomas

When you grow up, you have to find your place in life and your purpose. This is a memoir about that. There are a lot of funny and self-reflective pieces in this book by Thomas. It will be interesting to many people, but they will all find something they can relate to. He grew up in a loving home in an area of the U.S. that was otherwise poor. He talks about how his different experiences of being a “other” helped him find the meaning and place he is in today. Good for the positive thinking that it sometimes takes to put all the parts of our identities together in a way that makes sense.

Think Like A Monk by Jay Shetty

He used to be a monk and now wants to spread more “ancient wisdom,” as he calls it. This is probably very easy for people who are just starting out. He talks about both his own background and research that has been done on monks from different religions to start this. They have a lot of skills and abilities in common, and Shetty says he will help a novice learn how to think like a “monk.” While not everyone can go to an ashram, most people can use some of these techniques in their daily lives to keep their positive thoughts going.

When the Holocaust happened, Eddie Jaku, a German Jew, was alive and able to go to school. In 2020, he will be 100 years old and this book will be out. In it, he talks about how he went through some very difficult things and how to live a full and happy life. This is a great book to add to any list of the best positive-thinking books out there. The things this man has been through show you that even in the darkest of times, you can be positive and think about the positive.
