5 OPTIMISTIC BOOKS TO INSPIRE YOU
Subconscious mechanics: The importance of your subconscious in achieving objectives
- 8500 words
- 5 chapters
- 92 pages
When I first started this book, it was meant to become a course. But along the way, I decided the content I developed around its topics is better suited for a book.
Since I’ve known myself, I’ve always been inclined to set specific things to achieve. Some of them were easy to achieve and others seemed impossible. And I’ve realized that it doesn’t matter how simple, complex, easy, or hard the goal is to achieve. At the same time, I’ve realized that simply setting a SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-limited) goal is not enough.
More than that, this book would have still been a course if it wasn’t for those around me, who kept insisting that setting a SMART goal is enough and you don’t need anything else in order to achieve your goals.
Yes, you do, and this book is all about the things you need so you can properly set and achieve your goals. Sure, setting SMART goals is important when it comes to setting goals. Setting a goal without having it SMART is like cooking delicious food without adding salt. It most probably won’t work.
Inside this book, you’ll find a tool, made specifically for helping you better set and achieve your goals. With this tool, you’ll learn how to set indicators of progress and measure the results behind your efforts of reaching your goals.
The purpose of this book is to help you realize that simply having a SMART goal is not enough. The way you think right now impacts a lot the way you succeed in life. And the way you think right now is, most probably, not your way of thinking.
With this book, you’ll understand that visualization is an important part of achieving the goals you set.
This book is structured in 5 chapters and you’ll have a total of 6 missions, which are complex practical activities that will help you better understand yourself and the way you set and achieve your goals.
Even though you can simply read the book in just a few hours, in case you decide to go through the exercises and treat them seriously, it may take you more than one month to properly finish this book.
5 OPTIMISTIC BOOKS TO HELP YOU CHANGE
The power of 30-day challenges: How to become the constructor of an exceptional lifestyle
- 10000 words
- 12 challenges
- 112 pages
Most people find it hard to rewrite the story of their life. This book could be the first step towards that.
I’ve first discovered the power of a 30-day challenge a few years ago when I was experimenting with ways of overcoming my comfort zone through running.
I remember that in one month I set myself to run every day, for 30 days, and I ran 3 km every day of the first week, 5 km every day of the second week, 7 km every day of the third week, 9 km every day of the fourth week and then 11 km for the 29th and 30th days.
That’s when I started looking at the time intervals of 30 days as projects and in the year 2017, I went through 12 different 30-day challenges, with activities such as cold showers, running, dancing, cycling, meditation, and more.
If you set yourself to experiment 12 different activities in one year and try to do every single one for 30 days in a row, you’ll become a different person. You’ll learn more about your limitations and your limiting beliefs, and you’ll end the year with a bunch of new skills that you’ll be able to use in most of your day-to-day activities.
The power of 30-day challenges is in the results of the challenge. Doing something for 30 days in a row is hard. And it’s going to be even harder if you set to do different activities for a few months in a row. But the results you have after all those months will be incomparable.
I truly believe that if you set yourself a year full of 30-day challenges you’ll actually set yourself a new direction in life, that’s yet to be explored and discovered. After that, it will be up to you to decide if you go back to what you were before those challenges or not.
5 OPTIMISTIC BOOKS TO HELP YOU BECOME BETTER
How to change your life: Practical daily improvements
- 8000 words
- 10 chapters
- 13 new habits
- 11 new skills
- 80 pages
The older you get, the harder it is to make changes in your life.
That’s happening because the more you live, the powerful the beliefs you have will become – and not all your beliefs are positive. More than that, the more you live, the more your habits will become part of your subconscious and you’ll do things without even realizing it.
Want to know how hard it is to change a habit?
Try brushing your teeth, 30 days in a row (or even more) the opposite way. If you’re doing it from left to right, change the direction from up to down and vice-versa.
At the start, you’ll feel really uncomfortable and you’ll think you’re doing it wrong, but there’s nothing wrong with brushing your teeth. Also, you’ll have days where you’ll start brushing your teeth the way you used to because you’ll still have the old habit as an automatism. It’s happening because when you’re sleepy, you’re only half-conscious.
The same ideas can be found when you’re trying to change any habit and the bigger the habit, the more obstacles you’ll find while trying to change it.
Whenever you want to make a change in your life, you should be aware of the habits that are part of what you’re trying to change and take them one by one.
The purpose of this book is to give you a starting point and provide you with specific things that you can do to make small but relevant improvements in your life. You’ll find a list of personal skills that can be transferred to your professional life and, as well, a list of habits to help you improve your life.
Inside this book, like in most optimistic books from The Optimist Box, you’ll find the short and simple-to-understand information you’ll need so you can start reviewing your life and set up a direction for your improvements.

Building a business based on your passions is not easy and it takes time. But if you’ll ever want to do something else than what you’re doing right now and you want that activity to be something you love, then right now may be the perfect time for you to start.
