1.Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This book is about a boy from Andalusia and his adventures through the African desert to find treasure in the Pyramids of Egypt. One can easily relate to the story because we all have our own goals, and this book will teach you that no matter how many obstacles come in your way, you should never give up.
When you want something with all your heart and try to achieve it, no doubt, obstacles will come in your way, but if you are still trying to achieve your goal, then those obstacles will no longer remain in your way. They will become milestones, and they will lead you towards your destination. I recommend The Alchemist book to anyone who has passionately committed the life of their dreams today

8. zero to one by peter thiel
Peter Thiel is an entrepreneur and investor. He started PayPal in 1998, led it as CEO, and took it public in 2002, defining a new era of fast and secure online commerce. In 2004 he made the first outside investment in Facebook, where he serves as a director Peter Thiel has built multiple breakthrough companies, and Zero to One book shows how.’ – Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla ‘This book delivers completely new and refreshing ideas on how to create value in the world.’ – Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them.
It’s easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1. The act of creation is singular, as is the moment of creation, and the result is something fresh and strange.”
