Personal development books
Here are five personal development books have read in the first quarter of 2020. My reading list has mainly been focused in self improvement and financial literacy. My next post will detail financial literacy books I have read in the first quarter of 2020.
Heart and hustle by Patricia Bright
This book is great if you are looking for one of the following: self development, the basics of setting up a business, info on taxes, how to use your pain and struggle as a motivation, planning. The book also has practical steps on how to improve in your career, personal finance and self esteem. I might not have the best summary of what the book is all about. But as someone who is not good at finishing books I crushed this within days.
Outliers by Malcom Gladwell
This book is about what it takes for people to be extraordinarily successful. The book looks at most successful people in sports, technology, law, aviation and more. And what set them out for success from the beginning. You may be surprised to discover that, for some people you just have to be born in the ‘right month’ to be able to have a shot at being an extraordinary success. This has been one of the best books I have read.
How to love yourself by louise L. Jay
This book takes you through simple and practical steps on how to love yourself. In a world where the concept of self love can be viewed as self centeredness or selfish. This book reminds you of the importance of self love and how to make it part of your daily life.

The book will also introduce you to guided meditation. So if you’re looking for a book to help you grow into a loving and caring person then you should consider adding to your list. Have read and re-read this book countless times.
Self discipline by James Daugherty
To paraphrase, the book talks about the will power, that one thing that you need in order to change your habits for the better. As the book states it takes more than positive thinking and motivation to be a success in whatever you are striving to achieve. The book details the basics of how the brain actually works, the nature of human habit, identifying and replacing bad habits, how to cultivate self-discipline mindset and more.
