Now, with this easy and accessible guide, she shows everyone how to care for themselves, and to become the person they were meant to be. Buy it here.

6. The Third Door by Alex Banayan

It is this: They all took "the third door" — which is to say, the path that nobody else saw available, and that required more grit and determination than most other people have. Then Banayan explains how to find it yourself. Buy it here.
