    Which are your three favorite motivational books.

    Do you think these types of books help in getting rid of negative thoughts and energies?

    Dale Carnegie's "How to win friends and influence people", Norman Vincent Peale's, "The power of positive thinking" are my two favourite books and both totally blew me out of the water when I first read them because I had not encountered anything like them before. The power of positive thinking, especially, showed me that you could turn things round just by looking at "the other side of the coin". Third place - there are so many interesting and fascinating books.Tony Buzan on study skills, Napoleon  Hill's "think and grow rich", Thoams Harris I'm ok, you're ok, Eric Berne's "games people play". All classic, all useful. All help ypu learn about yourself and others.

    I would have to say, and these sound a little strange together: The Bible, Gift from the Sea by A.M. Lindbergh, and Smart Women finish Rich(not so much about the rich as it is about planning for financial security on your own as a woman- no matter what)  They motivate me in different ways, spiritually-giving me peace and direction,  artistically- inspiring me and finding commaraderie with another artist/mother/ wife,  and empowering me financially- an area I am weak in.
    Good question!

    I have many favorite books. Therefore, I will list three and a bonus book that aids in overcoming negative thoughts.

    The Bible
    Good Morning Holy Spirit by Benny Hinn
    Dancing with Destiny by Jill Austin

    Battlefield Of The Mind by Joyce Meyer. This is a book about overcoming negative thoughts in the mind.

    What an awesome question! I love motivational and inspirational books. 3 of my favourites are Wayne Dyer's "Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life", Brian Tracy's "Maximum Achievement", and Stephen Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective People". I do think these books helped me a lot in overcoming negative thinking.

    There are many other great books that are just as good, but you really have to read a few to find the ones that speak to you. Good luck in your quest and I wish you well.
