There are other many other resources to get your personal development time, which I have listed in my ‘Resources for Personal Growth’ post. But there is something about a physical book I can’t explain and I’m sure others can agree on.
My Top 5 Self Development Books
I’ve put together a list of my top 5 self development books I personally have read and applied. They have been the most essential books that I could easily understand and utilize on my self-development journey.
The Magic of Thinking Big by Dr. David J. Schwartz
The Magic of Thinking Big was one of the first self development books I read through on through. Dr. David Schwartz talks about how looking at the world through a more positive perspective can create a better quality of life.
There are so many examples for different areas in life that you can apply easily for your own. By understanding the process of thoughts, it is discussed how much of an impact it can make. I definitely recommend this one for your book collection or for the start of one.
Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
Ladies, this one is a MUST! And for the men, it can be too! I don’t think I ever felt so related by someone I don’t know personally. Rachel becomes your best friend and
Rachel goes over topics like struggling with your body image, life tragedies, dealing with the dreams that were completely shattered and so much more.
You will be shown that life isn’t always that glittery but we can make it with what we have and put our mind to. Girl, wash your face is the book to keep around even if you are just needing that pep talk from a friend. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Hustle Believe Receive by Sarah Centrela
Each story is different but there is an underlying theme; If you want to succeed, you have to put your head down, hustle and go after what you want. Again, this is one you’re not going to want to put down!
The Alchemiest by Paulo Coelho
If you like fiction books, this one is perfect for you! This is a story about a boy and his journey to finding treasure. It’s no ordinary treasure hunt, and you will find yourself invested in this journey and so much more.
Whether young or old, this book is for everyone. You are going to be able to learn from the encountered lessons and apply it directly to your life too. It is a beautiful story about following your dreams.
The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
Last but not least, The Power of Habit was one of the most insightful books on habit I’ve ever read. I’ve been able to apply it to my own life and change the habits I had for a long time through the information in this book.
Charles dives deep on how habits work and how to create and replace the old habits in your life. If you are looking for a book with an understanding of human nature and it’s potential, then you should definitely put The Power Habit on your list.
These 5 books have made the most impact on my life and I hope it can do the same for you! Books are an amazing resource that can teach you anything you are looking for. Reading a book is one thing, but applying what you’ve read is the most valuable thing
