Personal Development of any kind is one nonnegotiable habit that you need to intentionally engage in every day… and if you do, I promise you, it will completely change your life!

Some people call it self-improvement, some call it self-help, or personal growth, self-actualization, self-transcendence, or even spirituality.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s about setting time aside for reading books, listening to podcasts or audio books, or reading blogs that help motivate and inspire you to become a better person and live your best life.

The fact is, each one of us has some area of life that we need a little inspiration and motivation in.  We all have aspirations, dreams, goals that we want to reach, whether it be success in your career, wealth, your health, relationships, living a happier lifestyle and so on. But like I explained back in episode #56 of Life Made Simple, it is almost impossible to wake up every day feeling motivated to reach those goals and aspirations in life. Motivation doesn’t always just happen naturally. It doesn’t consistently find us every day. We need to find motivation!

And how do we do that? Well, we need to continually surround ourselves with things and people that keep us motivated to push us to reach those goals and accomplish the things that we really want in life.  We can’t wait for those feelings of motivation to just magically appear. We need help sometimes.

Daily personal development is one way to do that. We all should devote just a little bit of time every single day to some sort of personal development. Even if it’s just a couple minutes.

Examples of personal development include reading books, watching videos, or listening to Podcasts.  If you want more specific ideas, you can go back and listen to episode #9 or #56.

Now, I have to admit, I’m not a big reader. I actually prefer to spend my daily personal development time listening to other podcast shows while I drive, shower, or do the dishes. But sometimes, I do enjoy reading a chapter here and there of a really good book.

On today’s episode of Life Made Simple I share with you 3 of my favorite personal development books.
