Self Help books are the books which are written by keeping in view the perspective of the readers and to solve their problems regarding their personal problems, to motivate them to achieve their goals in life, to make them look at the positive side of their life, to inspire them.
WHY DO PEOPLE NEED SELF HELP BOOKS?
People need self-help books for many reasons, one may need to discover their own self some may must some inspirations and motivation.
The reasons why people needs self-help books are:

So, here is a list of best self-help books, everyone should read in 2019, to seek happiness with yourself:
1. THE SECRET:
How can this happen that in the list the great self-help books don’t come to the name of “THE SECRET”. This is written by Rhonda Byrne is one of the most inspiring books one should read. This book has been inspiring, motivating people around the world to live the life of their dreams.
This book teaches a person to be grateful for every morning and for everything happens to you in your day to day lives.
Law of attraction of THE SECRET book is the most important aspect of the book. This law suggests that like attracts like, and our lives are what we think daily.
For example, if a person is searching for a job then he/she must believe in themselves that they will get it. Because if they will think negative, they will attract negative. So if one thinks positive they attract positive things and vice versa.
2. THE POWER OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND:

This is best for those who appeal to seek the peace of mind, self-development, love and happiness and inner peace and inner strength. This book is structured in a way that teaches its reader what is the power of the subconscious mind?
This states that how a thinking mound a person’s life. It states that a person is what is going in their subconscious.
This is one of the great self-help books, especially who are seeking for self-development and inner peace.
3.YOU ARE A BADASS AT MAKING MONEY:

This is surely a life-changing book and a guide to making the kind of money one always dreams of.
It provides some principle that everyone should follow in the path of their journey to success:
1. If your surroundings, friends don’t support you it is the time to walk out from there and begin a new start.

This book is the best motivational book one can read.
4.THINK AND GROW RICH:
This book is written by Napoleon Hill in 1936. this book aims to provide guidelines to people to motive them and to make them achieve what they want. Even after the death of Napoleon Hill is a book is still in the list of the most motivating and inspirational books.
Napoleon Hill states that desire is the most important of all. If one can’t have a desire to achieve something they can’t achieve that.
Some vital principle of “Think and grow rich” are:
- AUTO SUGGESTION
- ORGANISED PLANNING
Even today it is very difficult to deny the persistence of his ideas and their relevance in today’s world.

This book is written by Paulo Coelho in 1988. The genre of this book is Drama, fiction and fantasy. But according to me, this book is one of the greatest self-help book.
This book teaches that always pursue your dreams and always do what your heart desires.
It does not matter what you do make sure what you do is what your soul and heart desire.
In THE ALCHEMIST a young boy who is shepherd listen to his heart and pursue his dreams. And he outgrows all obstacle’s just by doing what his heart and soul desires.
Sometimes you win sometimes you learn. One’s journey to success is never a bed of roses, it is always a herculean task. If one’s fail in between don’t give up because you will learn something from that.
Always remember, “FOLLOW YOUR HEART”
