My 10 Favorite Personal Growth Books

I read a lot of books.

In fact, I often read 3-5 books at the same time.

I read both fiction (literature, fantasy, mysteries) and non-fiction (travel stories, history, and science).

The genre that I read the most of though is personal growth.

So I thought I would share my 10 favorite personal growth books with you.

These are all books that have deeply impacted my journey through life and shaped who I am as a person. 

These are NOT the sort of books that give you simple solutions to life’s challenges and issues.

These are the sort of books to digest slowly, letting their wisdom weave its’ way into your heart and soul.

These books dive deep into the mystery, the beauty, and the messiness of life.

I´ll include links to Amazon in case you want to read more about these books (these are not affiliate links so I gain nothing if you choose to buy one or more of them).

BTW, these are NOT in any sort of order.

  1. The Five Things We Cannot Change: And the Happiness We Find By Embracing Them by David Richo.
  2. Daring Greatly: How The Courage To Be Vulnerable Transforms The Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brene Brown.
  3. What Matters Most: Living A More Considered Life by James Hollis.
  4. Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow by Elizabeth Lesser
  5. Falling Upward: A Spirituality For The Two Halves Of Life by Richard Rohr.
  6. How Then, Shall We Live? Four Simple Questions That Reveal The Beauty And Meaning Of Our Lives by Wayne Muller.
  7. When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice For Difficult Times by Pema Chodron.
  8. I Will Not Die An Unllived Life: Reclaiming Passion and Purpose by Dawna Markova.
  9. Let Your Life Speak: Listening For The Voice Of Vocation by Parker Palmer.

  1. Thanks for sharing :) I also love Brene Brown. My all-time favorite is Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers.
