Self-made millionaire and judge of the ABC show "Shark Tank" Robert Herjavec still aspires to be better. So he makes sure to keep a few inspiring and educational books on his coffee table.

In fact, the collection of books he's reading right now will "tell you a lot about who I am, who I aspire to be, and who I'm inspired by," Herjavec writes on Facebook.

In Herjavec's words, it's "time to invest in yourself," and, according to the shark, these 6 books are a great way to start.

In his book "Why I Run," Sutcliffe brings readers along on a journey of overcoming obstacles to fulfill a lifelong goal, one step at a time.


"Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive"

President-elect Donald Trump provided a blurb for the book, calling it "a must for everyone and anyone entering the business world."

In "Swim with Sharks," businessman and author Harvey Mackay shares what he learned from his own path to success, emphasizing the importance of networking, negotiation and other career tips.


"The Power of Broke"

Written by fellow "Shark Tank" judge and self-made millionaire Daymond John, "The Power of Broke" vividly details how John went from financial insecurity to success.

The read includes real-life lessons like what the entrepreneur learned from a $6 million mistake.

According to Corcoran, the book "is chock full of smart nuggets you will put to use right away!''


"Living with No Excuses"

In this riveting memoir, military hero and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Noah Galloway explains how losing his arm and leg in combat compelled him to live life to the fullest.
