Self development is a lifelong process. One of continuous learning, in which you drive for improvement and maximise your potential.

Self development is the conscious journey to growth. Sometimes, that journey doesn’t follow a straight line. Sometimes, there is no motivation and to help with that, I’ll share my go-to self-development books. These are a welcomed push when you are feeling a little reassurance in your self-development journey.

The magic of thinking big, David J. Schwartz

David J. Schwartz emphasises on the fact that thinking has an immense power on shifting the reality you live in. You have the power to create the life that you want and thoughts have a major role. Understanding that thinking and behaving in a way that will get you there, will eventually get you there.

The author also states the fact that you can get the most out of everything in life. Giving you examples and explaining that you do not have to be an intellectual to actually have success in your life. You just have to learn and understand how the habit of thinking positive has an outstanding effect in your life.

Think and grow rich, Napoleon Hill

The author explains very well that every great thing ever accomplished started as an idea. And that all the actions and thoughts that followed are the result of that idea. Napoleon Hill gives simple principles throughout the book on how autosuggestion, organised planning, and harmony between mind and actions are truly the masterminds behind achievements.

Feel the fear and do it anyway, Susan Jeffers

Susan Jeffers teaches how to stop forming negative patterns and how to reeducate your mind to think more positively. She presents a systemic approach to overcoming feelings of self-doubt, anger, frustration and helplesness. This is book is amazing for conquering fear and making the most of it.

Tiny Habits, BJ Fogg

BJ Fogg breaks down habit formation, and it shows how you can create habits for a fuller, happier life. BJ Fogg explains how slight behaviour changes are the fundamental factor in building strong, sustainable habits. From his point of view you need to make them easy, fit your life and make the entire process rewarding, so that you can keep going. I used his technique and I’m not at my 5th book read this year!

Think like a monk, Jay Shetty

Jay Shetty explains how individuals can adapt the mindset of a monk to their lives. In the book he shows how to clear roadblocks that come in the way of you achieving your potential. He explains how to get rid of negative thoughts, access stillness, and how to create real purpose in your life.

Think of these books when you feel like you are in need of an extra push to achieve what you are destined to. Have a slow reading session and take in all the lesson each book has to give and adapt those lessons in your life and see an improved sense of self-actualisation and development.
