The Personal Development Books I Recommend.
I am having a hard time coming up with a good way to start this blog post and a good way to introduce the personal development books I had read and listened to over the past few years.
All the books I have listed below and the same exact books I have read and or listened to over and over again and again.
Most of the books I purchased was from amazon and use the audible app on my I-phone to listen to them.
I am not an affiliate or will not make any commissions for referring these books to you. I am just sharing with you the books that have improved my life and helped me make thousands of dollars online.
The first book I purchased was.
“The Magic Of Thinking Big” by David Schwartz.
The Magic of Thinking Big gives you useful methods, not empty promises. Dr. Schwartz presents a carefully designed program for getting the most out of your job, your marriage and family life, and your community. He proves that you don’t need to be an intellectual or have innate talent to attain great success and satisfaction – but you do need to learn and understand the habit of thinking and behaving in ways that will get you there.
Then after I finished that book. A mentor of mine recommended that I should get this book.
“The Instant Millionaire” by Mark Fisher.
Do you have what it takes to achieve financial prosperity? Millionaire Mark Fisher shares his secrets in this simple, honest, rags-to-riches success story. Full of practical techniques for blazing a clear path to financial freedom, the book is based on the true story of Fisher’s meeting with a remarkable old millionaire who passed on the secrets of his success. This brilliantly conceived fable reveals an important truth: financial prosperity and a life well-lived are achievable goals for anyone who understands and practices the principles of success.
After I consumed those two books it changed the way I thought about becoming successful. I wanted to learn more! Then I stared to do some research and started to find some great books of my own.
These books are well know and very popular.

These are probably my all time 2 favorite books.
“Way of the Peaceful Warrior” by Dan Millman
Way of the Peaceful Warrior is a rare story with the power to transform lives. It conveys piercing truths with drama, heart, and humor and speaks directly to the universal quest for fulfillment and happiness, for finding our place in the world. It is a story for all times that can inspire joy, expand perspectives, and remind us of the deeper truth we already know, that real freedom lies within us right now.
“Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting” by Lynn Grabhorn
Is there a way to always have a fat bank account, a better job, a delightfully smooth relationship, or a better body? Is it possible to realize these dreams now, rather than at some unknown future date? Lynn Grabhorn answers these questions with a resounding “yes.” In Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting, she says that what molds every moment of every day of one’s life are feelings. Using a candid, witty approach, she shows how feelings – not positive things, or sweat or strain, or good or bad luck, or even smarts – set the tone for people’s lives. She frames her theory as a four-part plan that covers all the big topics – money, relationships, health and spirituality – without being pompous or preachy. Grabhorn’s “Law of Attraction” lets the seeker find peace and pleasure in life by feeling rather than thinking.
Then I started to find some awesome books on my own.
