I used to be one of those people who would see others reading personal development books (aka self-help books) and wonder why, of all the books on Earth would someone choose a boring book like that to read? I will admit that I even judged those people a little bit. But then, I started talking to a friend who had completely changed her life in all ways possible and I wanted to know HOW she moved past all the stuff she’d been through. I wanted to know HOW she built up her self-confidence and self-worth so much from where it used to have been. I wanted to know HOW she was able to become so successful in her new business venture so quickly. Well, one of the things that she said helped her with all of that, with changing her life and turning it in a complete different and better direction than where it had been heading previously, was personal development.
She said to start with this book because it covered topics that I was working on within myself at that current time. I took her advice and bought the book and just finished reading it the other day. Let me just say, I will NEVER judge or make fun of people who read personal development books again! I get it now! This book spoke to me. It really did. It helped me to see the areas of my life that I hadn’t realized I needed to work on if I really wanted to change my life for the better. It helped me to learn new ways in which I could improve on changing the areas of my life that I’d already been working on. It helped me see that no matter what your background is, no matter where you came from, no matter what mistakes you have made in your life, you CAN move past all of them and create a more fulfilling, more successful, and happier life for yourself.
If you have trouble believing in yourself, if you struggle with thinking negatively about everything all the time, if you want to make a change in your life but you don’t know where to start, then I recommend you read this book and then think about the ways in which you can use the information in the areas of your life you’ve been struggling with or you just want to change for whatever reason.
If you do read this book, please let me know what you thought about it! And if you have any recommendations for other personal development books, I’d love to hear them. Next up on my list is Girl Code: Unlocking the Secrets to Success, Sanity, and Happiness for the Female Entrepreneur
