Motivational books?

Motivational books?
Any recommendations for good motivational books? Preferably ones that aren't rooted in religious, new age, magical thinking, and/or pseudoscience. I'm thinking of books that help address things like low self-esteem, depression, procrastination, lack of motivation, stress, anxiety, phobias, etc.
My ignore list

Is that like The Anarchist's Cookbook? All its recipes taste terrible.

The art of the deal.


Are you ready for the fire? We are firemen. WE ARE FIREMEN! The heat doesn’t bother us. We live in the heat. We train in the heat. It tells us that we’re ready, we’re at home, we’re where we’re supposed to be. Flames don’t intimidate us. What do we do? We control the flame. We control them. We move the flames where we want to. And then we extinguish them.

Impersonation is treason.

Dianetics?

Oh, never mind.

Sorry you do not want this, but here it is, the Bible addresses those and many more.

God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.
