Becoming the best version of yourself isn’t something that happens overnight, it’s the small daily habits that lead up to big results.  James Clear said it best, we fall to our daily habits.  If we are looking to improve, it’s taking what we learn and figuring out how to implement it into our daily life.  There’s a well of knowledge out there on personal development, if you’re ready to move to the next level, here are some books for personal growth.

books for personal growth

Growing up reading wasn’t really my thing, I actually dreaded it and only did it because I had too.  Now that I’m older, I’ve found myself wanting to read more and more books.  Learning from the best how to improve and become a better person.

The authors from all these books are incredibly inspiring and there is something you can learn from every single one of them.

“Reading brings us, unknown friends” ~ Honore de Balzac

Books For Personal Growth

Atomic Habits

New York Times Best Selling Author James Clear book on habits isn’t like anything else out there.  The key takeaway from his book is the importance of your environment and what you surround yourself with matters because in his words

“We do not rise to the level of our goals.  You fall to the level of your systems.”

This is especially true when it comes to getting your home organized and keeping it that way.  If you do not have a good organizing system in place for your pantry or closet, reaching your goal of staying organized will be harder to attain.

Everything Is Figureoutable

Marie Forleo has been doing her thing for two decades and this is her first book.  It’s a wealth of knowledge for life, whether you are a student, career woman, or mom, she wants you through the mindset of finding out a way no matter what it takes.

The Road Back To You

The Enneagram.  If you haven’t discovered your numbers, stop reading now and go take this free assessment.  Once you know your number, read this book.  The Enneagram has been around for a long time and one thing I wish I had taken a look at sooner.  It’ll help you figure out how to deal with the 9 personality types and more importantly yourself.  You’ll find yourself identifying friends and family with the personality type that best fits them and it’ll make sense why they do what they do.

It’ll come to no surprise that I’m a one 😉

Do Less

In a world of constant pressure to do more and be more, this book was a refreshing read.  It discusses how doing less makes us more productive and happier.  Everyone is obsessed with being busy, it’s a badge of honor.  This books challenges that concept and encourages us to change the narrative.  For women, we are constantly comparing ourselves and trying to do it all.  Kate’s practical guide of doing less allows women to be the best version of them-self.

Daring Greatly

This was the first book that I read by Brene Brown and loved it.  She talks about vulnerability and shame.  How we can connect more with others by being vulnerable.  What I realized is all of us have experienced shame at some point in our life but we don’t talk about it.

We don’t like shame because it doesn’t make us feel good about ourselves but when we share our experiences by daring greatly we can connect with one another.

The world we live in is becoming more disconnected because of social media.

Can’t Hurt Me

The power of the mind. David Goggins, a former Navy Seal, talks about the power of our mind and how our mindset is what really gets in our way.

The stories he describes being injured and still being able to go through training really shows you the strength of your mindset.

This book really showed how you can push yourself through way more than what’s possible.

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way

One of my favorite books I read this year. Lysa Terkeurst talks about the disappointments we face in life and how to walk through them with God.

I have yet to meet someone whose life has turned out exactly as they planned without any disappointments.

It discusses her personal disappointments and how she walked through them with scripture.

Intentional Living

John Maxwell writes about living an intentional life and how you can do it.

I loved his authenticity and realness that discussed his selfishness and how we as humans are naturally selfish. One of my favorite examples he talks about is when you take a picture, who is the first person you look at? Yourself.

He talks about the importance of putting others first.  I think this a great book for the times we are living in today. More people care about themselves and taking selfies.  We all can use a little less of us and more if others.

High-Performance Habits

Habits are the cornerstone to success.  Brendon Burchard has done the research and goes through the six essential habits that extremely successful people do.  He has the done the research and has the data to back up his proven methods.


Nothing great happens overnight, that is the one thing in common with every single one of these books for personal growth.

P.S. The only book that I purchased was High Performance Habits, the rest were borrowed from the library.
