Welcome to the Friday Five where we chat about 5 random things, and this week’s topic is: 5 of the best personal growth books I’m reading in 2020. I am an avid reader, and 99% of the time it is some sort of self-help, personal development, personal growth type of book. I am obsessed with becoming the best version of myself and books have been one of my best resources in that process. This year, I’ve committed to reading only a few new books and rereading my absolute favorites. Here are the 5 Best Personal Growth book picks I’m diving into…
1. THE LATTE FACTOR (here)
Hands down the best financial book I’ve read. You can read it in a day or a weekend. It’s not only an easy read but also engaging; it tells a story instead of just providing boring financial facts. Regardless of how much money you make, you will close this book feeling like you can take control of your finances whether that’s saving for a vacation or planning for your future.
2. HOW TO WIN FRIEND AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE IN THE DIGITAL AGE (here)
Dale Carnegie wrote a book titled How to Win Friends and Influence People not the digital age version that this is. A friend recommended that book to me several years ago. I bought it, but didn’t read it right away because I thought that I did not really apply to me. Let me tell you…. this is one of the best books for relationships whether they are your co-workers, clients, neighbors, friends, whoever. I loved the original and can’t wait to read this updated version.
3. ATOMIC HABITS: AN EASY & PROVEN WAY TO BUILD GOOD HABITS AND BREAK BAD ONES (here)
A new one for me. I’ve seen this circulating the internet a ton recently and can’t wait to dive in. I am a big believer that everything comes down to habits.
4. YOU ARE A BADASS: HOW TO STOP DOUBTING YOUR GREATNESS AND STRAT LIVING AN AWESOME LIFE (here)
One of my past favorites. This book sets the foundation for personal growth in a simple, easy-to-digest resource. It hits all the main points you’ll see every successful person talking about from setting goals to visualization and believing in yourself. Even though I read tons of other books with a similar message, I enjoyed the style of this book and I plan to reread it as a refresher.
5. THE RHYTHM OF LIFE: LIVING EVERYDAY WITH PASSION AND PURPOSE (here)
This was one of the first personal development books I ever read. I remember it being life changing, and I recommend it so often to others. However, it has been years since I reread it myself, so it’s on my list for 2020.
