Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones Audiobook

Tiny Changes, remarkable Results

No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving—every day. James Clear, one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you’ll get a proven system that can take you to new heights.

Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, listeners will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

Learn how to:

  • Make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy)

  • Overcome a lack of motivation and willpower

  • Design your environment to make success easier

  • Get back on track when you fall off course

  • And much more

Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits, whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.

“James Clear has outlined the aspects of habits which define our lives. In a simple yet highly effective way he identifies the key ways to structure and embed new habits and to shift old ones. As a school principal I am using this work to assist staff and students in identifying unhelpful habits and to co-create new more successful habits with a good understanding of the conditions needed to embed such change.”

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life Audiobook

#1 New York Times Bestseller

Over 10 million copies sold

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

“Plain-spoken and full of wisdom. This book will hold a special place in my heart as one of the first self-help audiobooks I listened through. I got a lot out of it, and admire the author's staunchness in asserting that most of our problems are self-created, and only "fixed" if we choose to give a f*** about something else. This is not feel-good pop-psychology/self-help. It's cold, spoken from experience, and does not claim ultimate authority. If you want some solid, simple, ideas for letting go of persistent stressors in your life, take a look here.”

The Secret Audiobook

Many people who have read The Secret audiobook or seen the DVD of the same name report that their lives have changed completely because of this book. The idea behind The Secret is to bring to the masses the secret of happiness and success in everything you do. Most self-help books are not like this because they generally focus on one thing—doing well in business, overcoming depression or having a good relationship with your significant other, for example. The Secret, however, claims that it can give you everything that you want and also that the answer is really simple and has been known by great people throughout the centuries.

Rhonda Byrne claims that all great people have practiced the method she promotes in The Secret and she gets people who are well-known in their fields to talk about their rise to success. So The Secret is largely made up of quotes from people who have been successful in their chosen occupations. Some of these examples are really interesting, like the one of Jack Canfield who made $100,000 by making a fake $100,000 bill (just adding more zeros to a $1 bill) and pasting it on the ceiling above his bed. Every morning when he woke up, he would see the bill, close his eyes and visualize having that $100,000 per year lifestyle. Finally, after a month, an idea came to him and he ended up making $92,327 that year.

In another example, John Assaraf had just moved to a new house and was unpacking when his son came in and asked what was in a certain box. That box contained Assaraf's vision boards where he would put up pictures of the things he wanted in his life so as to attract them to him. Assaraf opened a box to show his son and while he was looking at an old vision board where he had pasted a picture of a house, he realized that he had bought the very same house and just moved into it.

So what exactly is the method that The Secret is trying to promote? Basically, The Secret claims that everything in life works according to the law of attraction. If you visualize good things happening to you, they do happen and if you visualize bad things happening to you, that's what happens. If you're a happy and cheerful person, more reasons to be happy and cheerful will come to you and if you're anxious or depressed, you invite negative things into your life. Fortunately, it's possible to change your thoughts, to deliberately think positive thoughts and visualize wonderful things happening, either by just closing your eyes and living them in your mind or using physical reminders like vision boards.

The writer of The Secret, Rhonda Byrne is an Australian radio and TV producer. She initially produced a DVD of "The Secret" and later wrote the book as well, which was endorsed by Oprah Winfrey. She has also written "The Power" and "The Magic". The Secret was on the New York Times bestseller list for 190 weeks and Rhonda Byrne was named one of TIME magazine's top 100 People Who Shape Our World in 2007. Rhonda says that the idea about writing The Secret came to her when she was at a really dark point in her life. She had worked herself into exhaustion, her father had died suddenly and her relationships with people were all suffering. At this time, she was given a copy of The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles and this changed her life, giving her the idea for The Secret. After that, she found that she saw the secret in many other places and realized that it had been present throughout history.

“The Secret is an amazing philosophy which is life changing. I originally saw the movie and I loved what it taught me. I downloaded the audiobook for a refresher because it is very easy to find yourself on a path of negativity. This is a great tool that I highly recommend to everyone. Listening to it in my car never gets old.”

The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself Audiobook

We all have dreams and wishes, goals and ambitions, but all too often we feel as though these desires are forever beyond our reach. But what if this was an illusion? In the audiobook narrated by Peter Berkot, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, renowned author Michael Singer makes just that argument: The barriers in life are not external, but internal and self-constructed. By making the inward journey and thoroughly examining our own consciousness, we can unchain our minds from the limitations we ourselves create and realize the serendipity of a free conscience.

Utilizing various Eastern philosophies and meditative traditions, Singer passionately explores the inherent energy that dwells within all of us, and how we can maximize our use of this energy by knowing and controlling its fluctuations. By exploring the depths of our own sub-conscious, Singer shows how the reader can identify and eliminate the negative perceptions that prevent us from reaching our goals. Seemingly anodyne thoughts and actions severely limit our consciousness, Singer writes, and only through eliminating these can we truly achieve mental freedom. A master in the realm of inner space, Singer provides the reader with helpful ways to effectively explore the self, a seemingly daunting task that can be incredibly rewarding if done with the instruction of a master.

A veritable renaissance man, Singer has made major contributions to the fields of business, healthcare, environmental protection, and many more throughout the years. Arguably his most well-known achievement is the creation of the now famous Temple of the Universe in 1975, a yoga and meditation center devoted to the search for inner peace among people of all religious backgrounds. In addition to this book, Singer has authored several philosophical works, including The Search for Truth and Three Essays on Universal Law: Karma, Will, and Love.

“This book is worth reading and re-reading. I rarely read any non-fiction book from cover to cover but I felt like each page of this book was made of gold. It's a wonderful and thorough invitation to awareness and letting go.”

Think and Grow Rich (Abridged): The Landmark Bestseller--Now Revised and Updated for the 21st Century Audiobook

Napoleon Hill’s famous book, Think and Grow Rich is a psychological examination into the power of thought and the brain. He explores how our thoughts can manifest our realities, especially in terms of progressing careers, and monetary success. This all-time classic self-help book is still relevant with its modern revisions by Arthur R. Pell. This book is not just for those wishing to build their income and wealth, it is for anyone wishing to succeed in any life aspiration. Napoleon Hill researched over 40 millionaires to figure out what made them rich. The main message of the book follows the narrative that “whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”

Hill demonstrates how one can exploit the power of our thoughts and our mind to manifest anything we want into reality. Thus, he argues that personal beliefs play a role in success. He believes that if the desire is strong enough, and you are willing to put in the work, anything is attainable, even your wildest dreams.

He teaches his audiences how to shift from a failure consciousness to a success consciousness through a series of steps: desire, ideas, plans, massive action, and success. Emotions are a vital part of our thought process and manifestation, and Hill suggests that negative and positive emotions should not co-exist in the mind.

Despite the novel’s original publication of 1937, the ideas will resonate with even the youngest generations of today. With manifestation being a phenomenon discussed on social media, especially on TikTok, millennials and generation Z will be able to relate to Hill’s philosophies and psychological concepts that he argues drive us to success and fulfill our wildest aspirations. As we enter a global recession in the wake of a pandemic, the cost of living and inflation is on the rise, leaving many young people losing hope for their future. Napoleon Hill’s self-help book still stands in the modern context. Arthur R. Pell’s updated revisions will make it digestible for a new generation of readers and should provide them a new perspective when it comes to chasing their aspirations.

“Best business book of all time. Mr Hill spent over 25 years interviewing the wealthiest people of the time and has compiled a list of traits/rules that we all can easily apply to our life to achieve anything we want. You do not have to work hard to become wealthy, you have to think hard.”

A New Earth: Awakening Your Life's Purpose Audiobook

The bestselling writer of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle, expands on the themes he brought up in his earlier book in A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose. In this visionary work, Tolle suggests that humanity is changing, and we can participate in this change to bring about a world that is full of compassion and goodness. At present, people are too involved in their individual thoughts and emotions, identifying with them to a great extent. However, thoughts and emotions are fleeting, and you have to look deeper to figure out who you really are.

Tolle also writes about the "pain body" i.e., the weight of past hurts that people carry around with them, once again believing that this is who they are. We don't have to keep our pain inside; we can let it out and become lighter. Eventually, Tolle brings up the three modalities that will lead us to a better existence: acceptance, enjoyment and enthusiasm. An individual can begin to accept things in his/her life even though they may not be to his/her liking. This is the first stage in awakening, and soon, it will be possible to move on to enjoyment where everything in life becomes pleasant. However, the third and most powerful stage is when you are filled with enthusiasm for everything you do. This is when you've truly awoken to your life's purpose.

Like The Power of Now, A New Earth is an intensely powerful book which will make you think about things that you've never considered. We take it for granted that we are the sum of our experiences, but Tolle shows us that we have far greater depths than we've ever imagined. We are all capable of so much more when we work in conjunction with the universe, and together, we can achieve goals that, at present, seem impossible.

Eckhart Tolle was born Ulrich Leonard Tolle in Germany in 1948. He had an unhappy childhood during which his parents fought a lot and eventually separated. He moved to Spain to live with his father and eventually moved to England where he attended the University of London and earned his Bachelor's. He was granted a scholarship to keep studying, but, at the age of 29, he experienced an epiphany which left him feeling blissful. He lived like a hermit for several years before finally getting engaged in the spiritual life in England. Then, he moved to North America where he met his wife-to-be and wrote his first book. A New Earth was chosen as one of Oprah's picks and has been on the New York Times bestseller list.

“While in many ways this is an expansion off of The Power of Now, I felt it is more readable and understandable in many ways. For anyone interested in the philosophies of Krishnamurti or even being able to look at your life in a new light, this is the book to do it.”

The Alchemist Audiobook

The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream is the global best-selling story about the journey of an Andalusian shepherd boy, named Santiago, and his quest to follow his dream. The story begins with Santiago, who keeps having recurring dreams of a young child telling him that there is a treasure in the Egyptian Pyramids. Since the dream comes to him on numerous occasions, curiosity motivates Santiago to follow his dream and begin a journey to find the treasure.

Along his way to follow his dream, Santiago meets individuals that teach him lessons throughout the journey. A key lesson that Santiago learns in the beginning of his journey is the idea of Personal Legend. This concept is introduced to him by a wise king named Melchizedek, who explains to him the idea of Personal Legend is that at a young age, everyone knows their dream, and what they are meant to accomplish in their life. The old king also goes on to explain, "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it". The Personal Legend is intertwined throughout the book and is the underlying theme throughout Santiago's journey.

Another individual he meets his named Fatima, and she teaches him to follow his heart, and that when one follows their heart they will find their fortune. An alchemist meets Santiago later in his journey and goes into further depth about Personal Legend and how it is essential to fully understand one's own dream. More individual's throughout the story teach Santiago key lessons in his quest to find the treasure.

The story of Santiago's journey is meant to awaken an individual's aspirations and inspire them to pursue their own dreams. The idea of Personal Legend is the main theme of the story and how by wanting something the universe will help us conspire to achieve that dream.

Paulo Coelho was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and by his early teenage years knew his own Personal Legend was to become a writer. Due to his parent's negative reaction to the idea, he went to law school instead of pursuing his passion for writing. After enrolling in law school, he quickly dropped out and lived an off the grid life, filling his life with travel and self-development. He soon had a spiritual awakening and decided to follow his dream and become a writer. In following his dream, he wrote The Alchemist, which has gone on to become an international best seller, and has been translated into more than 70 different languages.

“It's a wonderful story about chassing dreams and realising them, about love and respect to the destiny. this book is full of wisdom, deep thoughts and a beatiful philosophy.It makes relationsihps between humans and nature more easy in a nice way of respect and love.”

The Seat of the Soul: 25TH Anniversary Edition Audiobook

The anniversary edition of this beloved bestseller is celebrated in Prefaces by Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou and contains a new Foreword by the author, website links, and a new Study Guide to help readers find even deeper meaning and fulfillment.

The Seat of the Soul encourages you become the authority in your own life. It will change the way you see the world, interact with other people, and understand your own actions and motivations. Beginning with evolution, Gary Zukav takes you on a penetrating exploration of the new phase humanity has entered: we are evolving from a species that understands power as the ability to manipulate and control—external power—into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul--authentic power. Our evolution requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows us how to participate fully in this evolution, enlivening our everyday activities and all of our relationships with meaning and purpose.

The Seat of the Soul has sold millions of copies around the globe, and as it changes lives, more and more people begin to live by the values of the spirit. Indeed, a new world is emerging, and this book brings its message to you.

“I don't know how Gary Zukav does it, but this book speaks to me like very few books ever have. I just read this book for the third time and I am reminded why so many people love this author so much. Every time I read it I find new meanings, new inspiration and new ways of looking at myself and my circumstances that help me grow as a person and be happier. I also highly recommend "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life" by Taro Gold which makes a great companion book to all of Zukav's writing. Excellent!”

Awaken The Giant Within (Abridged): How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Financial Destiny! Audiobook

"Awaken the Giant Within - How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny!" by Anthony Robbins is a classic self-help book. The information contained within remains relevant and the ideas and powerful advice Robbins offers are as fresh now as they were when this practical, revolutionary, and fast paced book was originally published. This abridged version, boiled down to the most important points and now available as an downloadable audiobook read by Robbins himself, weighs in at a mere 1.5 hours of listening time. The depth and breadth of the advice Robbins gives warrants a second, or even a third listen, though. The original book is 544 pages long, but rest assured that nothing is lost in the audiobook version. In fact, with the benefit of hearing Robbins tell his story and deliver his tried and true life enhancing advice in his own voice, you may prefer the audio version of Awaken the Giant Within over the print publication.

Robbins gives the listener all they expect and more in this entertaining, anecdote filled mini-seminar, without the hefty price tag of his live performances. Awaken the Giant Within will show you the basics of goal setting and introduce you to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) in a manner that will encourage to you to try, and succeed, at life in ways you only hoped you could.

Robbins began his own journey to success in a dead end job as a janitor in Orange City, Florida. In twelve years, he had completely turned his life around and was arriving by private jet to speak to a sold out crowd in his home town. As an international best-selling author, Robbins has published five books. His professional development system; Personal Power has been sold worldwide. Anthony Robbins is also a widely recognized and respected philanthropist, and an innovator in the world of self-development.

Positive change requires hard work on the part of the listener, but with a road map as detailed, well thought out, and proven as the one Robbins offers in Awaken the Giant Within, wanting success and being willing to take the first step is all it takes to begin the journey.

“Contains some helpful tips & ideas & some useful exercises. I will need to return to this book a few times to really make sure I've understood the concepts (and completed all of the exercises!) but even based on a preliminary reading, I am already approaching things differently. Highly recommended.”

Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life Audiobook

New York Times Bestseller

Joining the ranks of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, You Are a Badass, and F*ck Feelings comes this refreshing, BS-free, self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations.

Are you tired of feeling fu*ked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unfu*ked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a fu*king miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way, it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

In Unfu*k Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions:

  • I am willing
  • I am wired to win
  • I got this
  • I embrace the uncertainty
  • I am not my thoughts; I am what I do
  • I am relentless
  • I expect nothing and accept everything

Lead the life you were meant to have—Unfu*k Yourself.

“A lot of the info in this book has already been covered by other coaches, lecturers and authors, but Gary John Bishop has a down to earth no-nonsense attitude to the subject that is very refreshing. He has cut away the fat of the self-help advice evergreens, and distilled it down to the bare minimum techniques and attitudes that you need to adopt to change your life.”

How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age Audiobook

Celebrating the seventy-fifth anniversary of the original landmark bestseller How to Win Friends and Influence People, comes an up-to-the-minute adaptation of Carnegie’s timeless prescriptions for the digital age.

Dale Carnegie’s principles have endured for nearly a century. Since its original publication in 1936, his timeless classic How to Win Friends and Influence People has gone on to sell 15 million copies. Now, introducing new listeners to Carnegie’s words of wisdom, comes How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age, a new guide for a new era.

Dale Carnegie could never have predicted the trajectory that new media would take, and the ways that the simple television screen would be adapted into computers and handheld communication devices. He didn’t know the term “social media” and Facebook was something not even dreamed of in Buck Rogers cartoons. And yet his lessons remain relevant for everyone who communicates online today. In fact, with problems such as cyber bullying and email etiquette, we need Carnegie’s help more than ever. Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. has re-imagined Carnegie’s lasting lessons for this difficult digital age, reframing Carnegie’s insights about communication, self-expression, and leadership. This book is a must-have guide for anyone who wants to find success on Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter, and any social media format today and in the future.

“I chose this book because I thought it'd be a good book for my students to read. I now think it's a great book for everyone to read. You need not be an employer or employee to benefit from its contents. Anyone who values the art of communicating effectively will benefit. Dale Carnegie wrote the original book years ago and his common sense approach still applies to our digital world. I love his style of incorporating true stories to illustrate each of his tenets.”

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing Audiobook

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?

Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo's clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).

With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house "spark joy" (and which don't), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo's newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

“This author very likely has OCD, but if you take to heart some of her suggestions, it really was easy to get rid of stuff and if you follow through with organizations strategies, it really works.”

Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - And Keep - Love Audiobook

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audio book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now. Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes. In Attached, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways: *ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back. *AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness. *SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving. Attached guides listeners in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, Attached offers listneers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.

“Holy cr@p. I wonder what my life would have been like had I read this book 10 years ago, or even 5. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wonders why all their relationships seem to self-destruct. And to those relationship all-stars? Read it anyway. It will help you understand the people around you.”
