I hope the summer is going well for everyone out there. Mine has been hella hot, but great. My favorite thing to do when its hot outside is to get inside with some AC (or outside in a hammock if possible) with a good book!
I love personal development books. What a freakin great way to dive deeper into yourself and how you can improve. I’ve been reading through a ton lately, and here are 5 of my favorites that I’ve read (and plan on re-reading) this year.
Just a heads up, this post contains affiliate links, meaning that if you make a purchase through it I get a small commission I dont link to anything unless I’ve used and love it!
1. Think and Grow Rich
Ahh, the classic. I’m currently re-reading this book for the second time because it has so much juicy information. The language is a bit out-dated, but the principles are just as relevant as ever. This book is all about how your thought processes can attract money (or anything else for that matter), and basically explains the Law of Attraction. It tells stories like those of Coca Cola and Andrew Carnegie, and how they came to be as successful as they were and are. This is one to read over and over, take notes in, and make happen in your life.
2. How to Make Sh*t Happen – Sean Whalen
This is one of my absolute favorites because it’s short, sweet, and to the point. Without giving too much away, he gives a quick and dirty guide to getting rid of excuses and just doing what you’ve been meaning to do. It does this by reminding you that everything is in your power, and thats that! A real game-changer if I do say so myself, and less than $4 on Amazon right now!
3. The Miracle Morning – Hal Elrod
This book is pretty well known, and I can’t say I’m surprised. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I’m HUGE into mornings. This book is part of the reason why. Its all about winning your morning so that you can win your day. He gives the outline for what a perfect morning should include, and in what order, and then you can make it your own. This one is a great place to start if you want to change your life but dont know how!
4. The Compound Effect – Darren Hardy
This is a book that was recommended to me originally when I was in high school, and even at 16 I finished it in one night. I swear I had some kind of a-ha moment on every page. One of my favorite concepts of all time is that a small habit, consistently, over time, can have a huge effect. Thats EXACTLY what this book is about. The influence of your choices, habits, goal setting, and environment on every part of success in your life. If you had to choose one book from this page, I would recommend it being this one.
