It’s normal to have low points in life where it is hard to feel positive all the time. That’s life. But it’s important to pull yourself out of these funks and get to moving again. Personal development books have been a major key to my self-growth and have been a tool I stand by.
If you’ve been following my journey on Instagram, you’ve probably known that I’ve had somewhat of a covid crisis. I know I’m not alone. A poll taken in mid-July had 53% of adults in the US report their mental health had been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over the virus. Imagine how much higher that number is now?!
Like many others mentally-affected, I found myself empty-despite living a full life. Alone- despite a full house. Depleted- despite good sleep and resources to restore and most prominently-stuck and in an apparent midlife crisis.
There I was wallowing in my darkness when I decided enough was enough and began to pick myself up. I started learning from a life coach and attending therapy. Soon, I began to reawaken the giant within (thanks Tony Robbins). Therapy became a major priority and I was committed to being the best student I could. Week by week, I researched, self-reflected, read and listened to every personal development book out there. I weeded through the cheesy, repetitive and boring. Within time, I finally selected my favorites, the gold nuggets. The books that profoundly moved me. The books that, page by page I said YES to.
Enjoy these reads and message me with your favorites!
