Here is a compiled list of some of my favorite personal development materials. Your life will only grow as much as you do — it’s that simple. To get something we’ve never had we must be willing to do something we have never done and personal development is the beginning.
I can still remember my first personal development experience… sitting in my car my senior year in high school listening to a CD my Mom (and new sponsor!) had given me. I would listen to it everywhere I went, but quickly changed to the radio station the second anyone else got into my car.
Now though, I can’t help my scream out my belief in personal development from the rooftops. I want EVERYONE to know the huge value of investing in yourself through person education! One of my favorite quotes by a very wise man, Jim Rohn, is “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” — I believe that is true 100%.
So here you are… a few things to help you get to work on building your fortune!
Maximum Achievement — by Brian Tracy. This book impacted my life in a way I cannot even describe. It was one of the first personal development books I read and it changed my life radically. I will be forever thankful for this book, for without it I would have never embarked on the path I am on today!
The Slight Edge — by Jeff Olson and The Compound Effect — by Darren Hardy. These two books have impacted my life in insurmountable ways. They teach you that the little things you do (or don’t do) every day may not make much difference in the present, but when compounded over time they really make ALL the difference!
The Richest Man in Babylon — by George S Clason. This modern-day classic will teach you sound money skills in their most basic form. I have learned SO much from this book, and the story is great too!
