When I turned 20 and got admission in the university. I had a lot of bad habits like procrastination, laziness, etc. I used to think about how am I going to live my life. I used to think why am I here? what is the purpose of my life? These are the questions that arise in every teenager’s mind. Somehow, I founded the way of the library. I have read more than 60 books about self-help. I am going to shortlist only Five of them for you. These books can change you too as they have changed me.

Here are the five amazing books that you must read.
