4 Great books for Personal Development

By Karin Wälivaara | Education

These books (in no particular order) is books I love and will read again!

There are tons of personal development gurus out there.

And many of them say the same thing but in a different way. And of course with their own spin on it. 

You need to find which ones that resonate with you but I hope you'll read these books - they have made an impact in my life.

Make it a mission to read 10 pages a day from a personal development book and you will see your life transform eventually.


The Universe Has Your Back - Gabrielle Bernstein

This book really hit me and made me buy other books from her. (One that I've read and one that are on it's way to me as I write this)

She really does a good job explaining how and why we need to listen to ourselves and that we really can trust that everything will work out.

If we just take action - which always is essential in everything.

You can never achieve anything if you don't do anything or change in any way. The book talk about the universe and how to connect with it.

How to find it within yourself.

"As long as you remain surrendered and committed to the highest good, everything you need will be shown to you"

Accept that obstacles are coming in your way and make the best out of it. Be grateful for everything you have. 

The Slight Edge - Jeff Olsen

This book I have gotten recommended from so many people that I just had to buy it.

I didn't regret it at all.

I am halfway through it and have recommended it to others and will make my husband read it when I'm done.

This is the missing piece in why diets don't work for some but work for others.

Why all the self-help gurus advice and lessons don't help some people while others are having great success.

There is a story in the book about two frogs that end up in a milk-container and are very happy and drink that milk.

Until they realize they can't get out. One of the frogs immediately give up. "There are no miracles in the life of a frog" and drowns in the milk.

The other one thinks there can be miracles and keep paddling with his feet to stay floating. He gets tired but keep paddling until he is exhausted and think that the other frog might be right.

Then he all of a sudden stand on the milk - his paddling has turned it into butter and he can jump out of the container. 

Small steps in the right direction will get you there if you give it time...

You are a Badass - Jen Sincero

Real talk right here.

She tells you what you think, why it's wrong and what you should think.

Most of the chapters ends with "Love yourself" as the last step of taking action on what she wrote about in the chapter. 

It is important to love yourself first - how will anyone else ever love you if you don't love yourself?

What you keep telling yourself will get in your way. If you want to loose weight and are telling yourself that you can't - you won't.

If you want to earn more money and are telling yourself you aren't worth it you won't.

This book really tells you how to speak to yourself to change your behavior. How to stop doubting yourself and start to live as you dream of.

Being in Gratitude for the not-yet manifested informs the universe that you know that what you desire already exists, and puts you at the right frequency to receive it.

Bought this one too and it's on my reading list!

Think And Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill

This is a classic and I assume people have recommended it to you in the past. 

It's written in the 1930:s and still remain on top of the personal development field. Everyone is recommending it.

I haven't read this edition - that's just the one that popped up when I went to get a picture and a link.

I don't know how much they changed the language but the one I read is really written in "an older language".

Although it might not be easy to read I recommend it because the ideas and thoughts are a really good foundation to go from in your personal development.

And read it more than once - Bob Proctor reads it every year I read somewhere. There is always something new to be found. 

I've read the chapter called Procrastination in this book twice a day for 30 days as part of a course in the law of attraction I took.

A year later I spoke to an other coach and he made me do a Facebook live every day for 30 days about different topics from that specific chapter so it's safe to say I know that one!

This is on my list to read again and I might get this revised version and read that!

I hope you enjoy these books and if you already have read one please comment and let me know what you thought about it.
