5 Books for Building Life-Changing Habits
If you want to trigger a life-changing transformation in your life, you have to step into your leadership role and become the ultimate creator of your reality.
To master your own destiny is to understand how to be present, because everything that matters happens in the present moment.
When I say “step into your leadership role”, I don’t necessarily mean to lead other people, but to get into the habit of being in the driver’s seat of your own life. This means taking full accountability for your thoughts, words and actions.
Yes, books help, but the most important thing you need to do if you’re serious about changing your life is to put into practice what you learn and allow yourself to advance every day.
Now let’s get into the list!
These are 5 books that accelerated my personal evolution. There are, of course, plenty more that I’ve already finished and learned from, and plenty more to discover as I move forward in my journey.

1. Atomic Habits, James Clear
If you only have time to read one book about improving your habits, it has to be Atomic Habits. It’s a game-changer even from the first read!
Why is ‘Atomic Habits’ so impactful? Because it gives you a cheat code as to how to turn your life around.
What’s the cheat code? You start by re-defining your identity.
So many people fail their New Year’s resolutions because they pick random, shallow goals that are in no way connected to one’s identity or their current lifestyle.
In order to change a big aspect of your life, you have to change your whole environment in order to make room for the improvements.
This means if you want to add a fitness habit, to pick a common goal as an example, you have to also look at your diet, your sleeping patterns, your work-life balance, your social circle and everything else that may potentially disrupt the flow that’s needed for establishing this change.
