A list of my favorite 50 self- help books

When I need help, I turn to self-help books. The last ten years have been a roller-coaster ride of grand proportions. My life had become a gigantic shit-show. And I say this in all honesty, I died and was reborn. Everything in my life was turned right-side-up and upside-down. Joel Osteen unspooled the story of the last decade, weariness.

A list of my favorite 50 self-help books

A few more of my personal favorites

There you have my list of 50 favorite self-help books. I’ve read many more leaning on authors like Caroline Myss, Dr. Christian Northrup, Dr. Joesph Dispenza, Gabrielle Bernstein, and hundreds of business books. I’ll admit I’m a book nerd. 🤓

These authors helped me find my light through some of my darkest hours. The words in these books and the support of beautiful friends were a lifeline.

The darkness taught me a lot. It’s helped me get real with Unpack Your Personality, which I feel has been mapped into my DNA. I also learned when I found my authentic self and stepped away from my ego-conscious, created self. I attracted the best of friends. Friends that didn’t judge but supported me on my growth. Of course, my family was and will also be my greatest teacher.

Thanks for Taking the Time

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this list, and it sparks you to read a few books. I’m a bit of a book nerd. I love traditional print books, and reading is one of my habits I won’t ever throw away!

For now, happy reading. Feel free to sign up to get blogs as their published, and I’m going deep this year on Unpack Your Personalty. Stay tuned for the free quiz, a podcast, and more. For now, follow me socially on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook.
