calm and contentment. You will discover how to tell the difference between reliance and
love, how to be a more sensitive parent, and how to become your genuine self.

9. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Eat, Pray, Love is Elizabeth Gilbert's best-known book, but you don't have to go on a globe-
spanning, pasta-eating tour to learn from her life. She goes into her creative process in this
book, explaining how enchantment, permission, tenacity, trust, and divinity may aid people in
their creative endeavours, whether writing a book or creating art.

everything that terrified her. After reading what Rimes accomplished, you might want to do
something you've always been scared to pursue due to a lack of courage and confidence.


In conclusion, there is nothing better than getting yourself immersed in a book that will allow
you to discover and identify your potential and help you become a better version of yourself
to succeed at various walks of life.
