Personal Development Books
Summer is winding down and as the nights slowly begin to draw in it's time to find new and interesting ways to spend our evening and though the TV is tempting we thought that we would suggest a productive, educational but still fun way to use your time, self-help books. They're fantastic way to unwind and relax whilst still feeling productive and growing that ever important knowledge bank whilst you're at it! Whether you have issues with your confidence or have maybe found yourself a little lost and in need of direction, we've got a self-help book for you.
As it seems more and more people are having a go at writing their own personal development books it can be hard to know which ones to read. From Fearne Cotton to Oprah Winfrey or maybe Desmond Tutu, everyone has advice to give but we understand that ensuring we get coherent guidance is essential before we commit to reading any novel.
Here at Meee we have a few firm favourites that we regularly advise but with the ever growing genre popping out a plethora of self-help books every month we thought we would have a look at finding some new suggestions.
Here are our suggestions for the rest of 2018:
- You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero
In this New York Times Bestseller, the author helps readers go beyond fear and look into ways to genuinely live a better life. Each chapter explores a new topic surrounding confidence and self-esteem and ends with an exercise to help you be a better version of you. This is the kind of self-help book that engages you from the beginning, encouraging you to go back and reflect on how you responded to the exercises. If you feel like you have had a confidence knock lately or just feel as though you could use a pick me up, this book is definitely for you
- Declutter Your Mind by Steve Scott and Barry Davenport
This book focuses on how to stop worrying, relieving anxiety and most importantly, how to eliminate negative thinking. This is a very hands-on book that is full of exercise to help engage your mindset. In these pages, you will learn the causes of mind disarray, thought clutter and how to effectively turn negative thoughts into positive thinking. It will also cover setting goals, strategies to help with rocky relationships, the importance of meditation and much more. This is a great book for anyone who is finding themselves overwhelmed with stress, worry or anxiety. You will have a great time utilising the content with these handy actionable exercises to help you feel more successful and of course, more positive.
- Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
In an age where creativity is cherished it is easy to overlook the help that some others may need. Big Magic is a great book for anyone feeling like they are having some blockage that prevents your creative juices flowing or if you are feeling generally deflated by the struggles of being an artist and making it on your own. Elizabeth Gilbert covers all of the typical obstacles that creators may face on the journey to pursuing his/her dreams and in her honest, no non-sense tones help you realise what you want out of life. After reading this many have commented that they enjoyed the chapters from regular men and women who have endured and in most cases overcome creative challenges. It’s a great boost in confidence and a reminder that no one is in this alone!
- Meee In A Minute: 60 Ways to Improve Your Life in 60 Seconds – Sid Madge
Our founder, Sid, is about to publish his very first novel and we can’t wait. Throughout this handy guide, Sid gives you tools and mechanisms to make positive changes in your life, helping you to be more confident in who you are more successful in life. For us it’s all about tiny tweaks leading to big changes and in this book we reckon that personal-development doesn’t need to take oodles of time but instead starts with action. Each chapter is 60 seconds with a corresponding 60 second exercise to follow. We really believe that one minute is all you need to start making a positive change in your life so don’t wait till Monday, start today with just 60 seconds of your time.
- Letter to my Daughter – Maya Angelou
This is a self-help guide in a usual form as Angelou writes letters to the daughter she never had. In this book she describes her turbulent past and gives details and advice on how to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. For those of you who prefer more indirect advice this could be a great option for you. The letter writing style also suggests the benefits of writing down our worries and woes as a cathartic exercise that is essential for personal development. It’s an intimate conversation that transcends paper and allows you to dip in and out of what is a truly inspiring account of living life to your absolute fullest.
