Best Personal Development Books of All Time




1. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho





While The Alchemist is more of a novel, many motivational coaches and readers alike highly recommend this for its message of finding one’s Personal Legend, and the importance of persistence.   The book takes you to an adventure together with Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy, on his quest for treasure at the Egyptian pyramids. What he did not expect was that his journey would be far more enriching than the worldly treasures itself. His journey taught us about the importance of listening to our own hearts, and to be persistent in following our dreams.





“When you want something badly enough, the whole Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”





2. Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman





Thinking, Fast and Slow is an exceptional book about human minds that will change the way you think. Written by Daniel Kahneman, a Novel prize laureate in Economics, he explained about the two systems in our brain: System 1 is fast and intuitive, but can be rash and irrational; System 2, on the other hand, is deliberate and logical but is terribly slow.
 
In simple and humorous prose, Kahneman explained about how the two systems affect the way we make decisions and perceive the world, and aims to teach you to think critically while utilising the two systems fully.





3. The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle





As we live in the Information Age, we are bombarded with too many data and information every second that we forgot how to live life fully. One of the best personal development books ever published, The Power of Now aims to bring you back from your head (or smartphones) to the current moment. The technique of mindfulness allows one to bring one’s attention to the experiences occurring at the present moment, instead of living in the thoughts of past or future. Many researchers have proved that mindfulness correlates with better health, well-being and quality of life. The Power of Now will guide you in your path to mindfulness, to clear any unwanted thoughts and be fully present.





4. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie





Even one who is not familiar with the self-help industry would recognise this classic, How to Win Friends and Influence People. Ever since its publication in 1936, it has gone on to become one of the best personal development books of all time, even listed #19 on Time Magazine list of 100 Most Influential Books in 2011. This is a book that provides you with key insights into human relationships and how to genuinely get along with people, something that all of us need guidance or refresher once in a while.





5. The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People by Stephen R. Covey





The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People is also another classic in the self-help category, having been sold more than 25 million copies after its first publication in 1989.   Many personal development books in the market aim to change either the behaviour or the attitude of a person, which is not sufficient if one does not change his/her perception of the world - exactly what Covey wants to share with you. Full of wisdom and insights, this book is definitely one of the best personal development books around and one should not miss it.

  3. I just found out that Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi - two people I admire the most when it comes to business, success and impact - are doing a special online training event and with this special link WE can join the training for free! Wow, just wow...

    This isn’t some random training... I just got the inside scoop that they will be exposing how you can profit from a pretty much “hidden” $355 million dollar a day industry that’s expected to TRIPLE within the next 5 years according to Forbes.

    So whether you have your own business, want to start one or just want to create more income for you and your family – you’re not going to want to miss this training right from the comfort of your own home...

    Even better... these guys are all about making an impact on the world and they want to help US do the same thing while WE get paid for it…
    Tony hasn’t done a training like this in over 10 years – so no way I’m missing it.

    Use this special link I got and go register now... the spots and chat are limited so make sure to show up early so we can ask them questions at the end...

    Isn’t it most all of our dreams to make an impact, leave a legacy and generate the type of income that allows us to have control of our time and decisions?

    That’s exactly what Dean & Tony have mastered like no other and for the first time ever on a training, they’re going to show us how to accomplish all of those same goals.

    There may never be another chance again in history to see these guys, sharing the secrets they have learned over a combined 62 years of business and impact...

    If you are ready for your next level then you won't want to miss this. Because if not them now... Then who and when?

    Use this special link I got and go register now... The spots and chat are limited so make sure to show up early so we can ask Dean and Tony questions at the end...

    Plus they did an all new “quick pre-event” training you’ll get instant access to once you reserve your spot.

    See you there
