To achieve the highest level of any performance, you will need a powerful mental force, extreme resilience, and unstoppable persistence.

Motivational gurus are good for emotional motivation; they might make us feel better for a day or two. However, once the effect of endorphins vanishes, we throw the towel, lower the bar and get back to the insecure, doubtful, unfocused, and shaky mindset.

This effect happens because motivation only solves a performance problem on the surface level rather than digging deep into the root cause of what it takes to become an elite performer.

The books I include in the following list are not about emotional motivation.

I have chosen those books extremely carefully because I know most motivational books are full of made-up stories and fluff that bores us to death.

The following six books are backed by extensive research, science, and real-life experience from the best you can find in a bookstore.

Those books are written by the top performers in the fitness and sports world, human psychology, the U. S. Navy, and the music industry.

Those books will teach you to become a more decisive leader, thinker, athlete, business owner, entrepreneur, coach, hustler, teacher, parent, team builder, or performer in a competitive environment and marketplace.

I recommend you start with a single book and listen to it twice; this will allow information to sink in and slowly build the mental toughness to achieve the highest standard of performance you can possibly reach.
