The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

The author has been praised by many for his spiritual teachings and inspirational writing.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra
In The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, author Deepak Chopra explains the laws of pure potentiality, giving, least effort, detachment, intention and desire, and dharma. It also includes helpful exercises on how one can apply these principles in one's search for a satisfying and fulfilling life. Chopra writes about how to manifest yourself by letting go of your desires and striving and learning to be present and achieve spiritual success, not with desperate striving, but with ease. According to Chopra, creation comes forth with ease in the natural world. A seed, for instance, does not struggle to become a tree, but simply unfolds and grows into its natural state of being, Chopra notes.
The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer
The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-Create Your World Your Way by Wayne Dyer serves as a guide to learning how to succeed at all costs and never giving up on your inner truth. This book looks at intention, not as something you do, but as something you are a part of, and as an energy field you can access to co-create your life with the power of intention. In his book, Dyer encourages learning to find a balance between will and surrender.
