If you want to have more, you have to become more. Success is not something you pursue. What you pursue will elude you; it can be like trying to chase butterflies. Success is something you attract by the person you become." -Jim Rohn
Do you feel like you are missing out in life and falling short in various areas? Do you want more but can't figure out why you aren't getting it? The truth is, we must grow into the person that is ready to receive more!
There are so many ways to grow, but we must make a conscious effort to do it. I started taking personal development seriously a few years ago and it has transformed me in ways I could have never imagined. I was NEVER a reader growing up, but now I can't get enough! I am continually listening to one and reading another.
It can be crazy overwhelming deciding where to get started! The truth is, just start somewhere, pick a darn book and dive in.
If you are reading or listening and it's not jiving with you, stop. There is no shame in that! We are too busy to reading things that don't resonate with us or meet us where we are.
My best advice to choosing a book is to figure out what area you are wanting to work on in that moment. It is amazing how awesome google can be, but I guarantee if you throw the question out on social media, you will have friends and family that will make amazing recommendations.
I thought I would share with you my top 10 personal development books I think everyone should read. I do have some other favorites, but they are niche specific. These are the big ones for EVERYONE.
Real growth and change doesn't happen just by reading or listening to these books, although, that is a start! The real change happens by internalized what is being consumed and then applying what is learned! Real growth will happen in the ACTIONS taken!
I would love to hear what books you would add to the list! Please share your comments with me, I am always on the hunt for my next great read.
I am a former dual sport collegiate athlete sharing my story, how you can gain strength, confidence and discipline too, and how I apply lessons learned from competative sports and how to turn them into real life success.
