I recommend reading "Awaken the Giant Within" by Tony Robbins.
Btw take care not to rush through these books, to get the most you really need to think. I always type on a document how they relate to my life, so im kinda applying what I learn.
There are also lots of Youtube videos where they summarise these type of books, so you could spend your time reading other genres.

The brain that changes itself
The 4-Hour Work Week and Tools of Titans, both by Tim Ferris were great books
The Miracle Morning by Hal Enrod was a solid book
15 Secrets Successful People Know about Time Management by Kevin Kruse was a good read but you need to pick out the bits you need
Anything You Want by Derek Sivers is a nice little book (and is nice to read alongside Sivers section in Tools of Titans)
I've read a few dozen self help books now and I think the main takeaways from them are:
-- Nobody is right. Each and every book is a description of what worked for someone else or what they've observed but after reading a lot of books you start to see conflicting advice. No matter how many books you read, you won't find answers
-- More importantly than reading these books is actually putting things in action. Reading so many books is a complete waste of time if you don't actually put the things you learn into practice. I'd recommend picking few books and really putting stuff into practice, rather than getting long lists of recommendations. You shouldn't spend more time reading than doing. Failure to actually put what you read into practice makes the books seem like a scam, when in reality they're only worth the money if you act on them

Jordan Peterson's 12 rules for life is good.
I like the 7 habits of highly effective People. Also HTWFAIP. Also read the Autobiographies of influencial characters such as Malcolm X or the Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
