Inspirational Novels and Motivational Books That Can Magically Change Your Life

As time passes we will add and recommend new inspirational novels and motivational books which are meant to help you discover your own meaning of life. If you have an addition motivational novel that you'd like to see then please, recommend. Some of these motivational books are well known and others not so well known. But each has been known to shape the lives of the readers. We don't necessarily place a judgement on them (one above the other) but we do suggest you read and learn. Each has many good things to offer the reader, some more than others. Rather than duplicate the work of creating a synopsis of the book and novel, each title links to where you can read about the book, see what everyone says, and even order a copy if you like. (Of course we get a commission if you order)


Inspirational Novel - The Alchemist
The Alchemist -- Paulo Coelho

An easy evening read, I read this book a few years ago and was quite entranced by it. It is told as the fable of a young shepard boy who goes on a quest to find a worldly treasure. From his home in Spain, he journeys around the world and learns the values of hard work, and following his dreams.

Inspirational Novel - The Celestine Prophecy
The Celestine Prophecy, An Adventure -- James Redfield

This book practically became a cult phenomenon. This book introduced me to the concept of Syncronicity. Actually syncronicity is redefined in this book. A fun read, sometimes it is a little predictable and I found that the ending needed work. However, if you haven't read it, you probably should.

The Magic Life - A Motivational Novel
Inspirational Novel - The Greatest Miracle in the World
The Greatest Miracle In The World -- Og Mandino

One of my favorite books of all time. I used to buy this in paperback and give copies away for Christmas. Once you read one of Og Mandino's books, you'll start reading them all. His books are very popular best sellers. They are all very easy to understand and the story in this one keeps you guessing.

Inspirational Novel - Illusions
Illusions, Tales of a Reluctant Messiah -- Richard Bach

When I was in High School, I read this book. A teacher had recommended that I read one of Bach's other books, JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGUL, which is also a good book. However, I chose this as the better of the two. He has a lot to teach in these pages.

Inspirational Novel - The Magic Life
The Magic Life - A Novel Philosophy -- Ace Starry

Without a doubt, this is the most important book on this page. The other's are books that I've enjoyed reading, while this was the one that I enjoyed writing. It is a story of a young accountant who meets a street magician and learns from him a philosophy of following your dreams.

Inspirational Novel - Mutant Messages
Mutant Messages From Down Under -- Marlo Morgan

One of my more recent reads, I found that the story was so gripping from the first few pages, that I couldn't put it down.

Inspirational Novel - Mutant Messages
The Way of the Peaceful Warior -- Dan Milman

I recently read this and was absolutely amazed at how similar it was to my own writing. I hope to meet Dan Milman some day and talk about our writing styles.

Inspirational Novel - The Way of the Wizard
The Way of The Wizard -- Deepack Chopra

More of a guidebook really. The fiction in this book isn't really even necessary.

Title on Back Order
Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance -- Robert Pirsig

An amazing book for a thinking person. If you like to ponder big questions about the nature of human beings, then you must read this book. This is not an easy read by an stretch of the imagination, and I don't recommend it unless you are the type that likes to study a book, not just read it.

Live Changing Novel - Stranger In A Strange Land
Stranger In a Strange Land -- Robert A. Heinlein

This book was a gift, that I've truly cherished. Though it is a science fiction novel, it is a very powerful phylosophy book. I loved it.


Self-help Book - As A Man Thinketh
As A Man Thinketh - James Allen

Your thoughts and your dreams determine what you are and what you will be. This little book is meant to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that they themselves are makers of themselves, by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage.

Inspirational and Motivational Book - A Course In Miracles
A Course In Miracles - Helen Schucman
Inspirational and Motivational Book - How to Win Friends & Influence People
How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegy

I love this book. I used to buy it for all my employees. The main thing I remember from it is that you can get ahead in life by simply doing a "little" more than the other guy. You don't have to do great and amazing things. Just simply take care of the little things and learn to care about the other guy. This is what leads to true sucess. If you haven't read this book, there are many copies available on the market. Buy it and read it and pass it on.

Inspirational Non-ficion - Man's Search For Meaning
Man's Search For Meaning -- Viktor E. Frankl

You will be changed by this book. If you aren't then you aren't breathing. This is the story of a moving personal essay about Frankl's imprisonment in Auschwitz and other concentration camps for five years. His view of the struggle for survival and determination that it comes down to hope is a true revelation. Read this book.

This is a wonderful book for managing your life and career. The thing I learned from this self-help book was a terrific way to look at time management. If you don't have a scheme for managing your time, Stephen Covey's book will help.

Insprational and Motivational Book - Think and Grow Rich
Think and Grow Rich -- Napoleon Hill

The title tells it all. Your thoughts determine your actions and therefore your success. This is one of the best books ever written on the power of positive thinking. I cannot recommend this book enough. When I first got out of college I read this and I was changed forever. Buy this book and you will not be sorry.

Motivational Book - Unlimited Power
Unlimitied Power -- Anthony Robbins

Over the years, I've read and listened to a great deal of self-help type books. Unlimitied Power provides a clear path to maximizing one's own potentional. Unlimited Power" contains three different parts: Section I: The Modeling of Human Excellence Section II: The Ultimate Success Formula Section III: Leadership: The Challenge of Excellence. Tony Robbins is an excellent motivator. I highly recommend any of his products.
