(Travel, Self Development & Spirituality)
It doesn’t matter what your reason is — whether you are going through something difficult, need to improve your life, or simply have the time, it’s always a good idea to read (or to listen) to! a personal development book.
Must Read: jc food mart
These books will not only lift your spirits when you feel down but they can also be a great way for you to explore the world and get inspired to do new things.
However, I have found that not all personal development books are equal. There have been some really bad books in my time, and I can attest to the fact that not all personal development books are created equal.
To help you make the right choice when choosing your next book, I have compiled a list with excellent self-help and travel books to aid you on your personal growth journey.
Michael Singer: The Untethered Mind: The Journey Beyond Yourself
This would be my all-time favourite book. The Untethered soul reveals the inner critic that we all have and shows us how to be friends with it. It also gives insight into how to let it take control of our lives.
Michael Singer has a wonderful way of showing you how it is possible to let go of the limiting thoughts, emotions, or energy patterns that have been affecting your consciousness. This book will change your relationship with yourself, the world and each other.
Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found On The Pacific Crest Trail
Wild, regardless of whether or not you have seen the film, is a must-read for any adventurous soul.
The author embarks on an impulsive hike of over a thousand miles along the Pacific Crest Trail. This is her true story. Cheryl must face her demons, and the story captures her joys and terrors as she pushes on against all odds to complete a journey that eventually healed her.
Brene Brown: The Gifts of Imperfection: Let go of who you think you should be and embrace who you are by Brene
Since listening to Brene Brown’s book, The Power of Vulnerability (in which she describes her feelings about vulnerability), I have had a lot of respect for her. Brene Brown has the power to capture you and gently encourages you to become a better person.
The Gifts of Imperfection should be read by everyone from a young age. Imagine how different our lives could be if we saw our flaws as strengths and not weaknesses.
This book is more than a self-help guide. It’s an inspirational guide to wholehearted living. We all need to feel self-worth and accept ourselves.
Brandilyn Tebo: The Achievement Trap: A Guide for Perfectionists, People-Pleasers, and Overachievers to Freedom and True Success

Breaking: the Habit of Being Yourself by Joe Dispenza
Dr. Joe Dispenza is one of my favourite teachers. He has helped me to overcome the subconscious patterns that have been controlling my life for many years. Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself combines the fields of quantum Physics, neuroscience, brain Chemistry, biology, and genetics. It shows that your genes don’t make you a failure and that you are not bound to stay the same way.

Michael Brown’s The Presence Process: A Journey into Present Moment Awareness
The Presence Process encourages us to strive for ‘conscious emotion response’ as a way to live our lives. All of us have deep suppressed emotions that we learned through our first seven years of life. These are our subconscious. This is why many people react to situations in their lives with repetitive, unconscious behavior.
Anyone can transform their life experience by reading this book and following the steps. He defines Presence as the state of authentic beingness that is present in one’s awareness.
Torre DeRoche: Love with a Chance to Drown
Let’s start with a highly acclaimed travel memoir.
