    So I have been a big fan of Tony Robbins for a very long time, but I am thinking if there are other self-improvement books that worth reading during Nofap? I have something in mind like Outliers and Dale Carnegie. But what else? I need a bit more motivational and inspirational type of stuff to fill myself.

    i think we should add Marnia Robinson book Cupids Poisoned Arrow, i think its a must for every Fapstronaut.
     
  7. I just looked into this one a little. What is it about? Is she advocating something similar to Karezza?

    I am a big fan of "As A Man Thinketh" by James Allen (1903) and Earl Nightingale's "The Strangest Secret" (1957). I'm sure both can be found online if you look hard enough, and both are audio books uploaded to YouTube I'm certain.

    yes main topic is approching sexuality via karezza, reading it was a really big insight for me.

    I guess my recommendations would be : 12 Rules For Life by Jordan Peterson, Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins, and maybe Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink.
     
  11. Reading other books can be a start and somewhat helpful , HOW ABOUT YOU START WRITING THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE NOW, BE THE HERO OF YOUR OWN STORY DOING YOUR OWN THING YOUR WAY WITH NO APOLOGIZE NOT LOOKING TO OTHERS FOR PERSMISSION TO BE YOU AND DO WHAT YOU DO

    The Willpower Instinct by Kelly McGonagall. Very good explanations on how the brain works, how dopamine works, what drives us, and, most importantly, many good tips on how to strengthen your willpower.
