Written by Amal Asebriy

Living as a woman in a male-dominated society is already hard as it is. But living as a working woman in the working world, is a whole another story. You will find yourself surrounded everywhere by them. In fact they dominate every industry.

Thus if you want to compete in the working world, you have to learn to approach life fearlessly. You have to cary yourself with an air of success, determination and grace. And these amazing books will help you get inspired in order to achieve  that.

#1. Girls Boss: by Sophia Amoruso1

“Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back. Learn to create your own opportunities. Know that there is no finish line; fortune favors action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life that you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up. And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.”

#2. Lean In: by Sheryl Sandberg2

“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier.”

#3. Bossypants: by Tina Fey3

“Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through, and opinions will change organically when you’re the boss. Or they won’t. Who cares? Do your thing, and don’t care if they like it.”

#4. The woman I wanted to be: by Diane Von Furstenberg4

“When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier.”

#5. I know how she does it: by Laura Vanderkam5

“You don’t build the life you want by saving time. You build the life you want, and then time saves itself. Recognizing that is what makes success possible.”

#6. It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be: by Paul Arden6

“Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have. Without having a goal it’s difficult to score.”

#7. The Art of thinking clearly: by Rolf Dobelli7

“Whether we like it or not, we are puppets of our emotions. We make complex decisions by consulting our feelings, not our thoughts. Against our best intentions, we substitute the question, “What do I think about this?” with “How do I feel about this?” So, smile! Your future depends on it.”
