Books For Personal Development

You can find a lot of books for personal development online and in your favorite book store. Some books are written by famous authors with large followings, and other books are written by authors who are less-known. Further, there are as many philosophies for personal development as there are authors for books for personal development. Can they all be right?

What you will find, if you read or skim through several of these personal development books, is that there are about twenty or so universal truths that lead to personal growth and happiness. Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart is a book and journal that extracts these twenty or so universal truths, expounds on them, and places them all in one convenient location - inside this book! Aimed at the younger generations who are graduating high school and college, the truths that are found on the pages of this book can be applied by anyone at any age!

How Does Personal Development Work?

Sadly, despite this period of enlightenment, many people still think that personal development is an external exercise. They believe that the way they behave, the things they do or don't do, and how they present themselves to the world are the action steps of a great personal development plan. This is because people have an inherent tendency to think in terms of how they perceive the world perceives them. Actually, personal growth is an internal endeavor, not an external one!

Personal Development Journal

Of all the books for personal development, Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart contains a dynamic personal development journal inside it. This journal is interactive and should be used on a day-to-day basis to project and track your progress as you learn and apply these twenty sacred truths that lead to a happy heart. A happy heart and a healthy mind are precursors to attaining anything we want in life!

Forgiveness is Key for Personal Development

In this book, we will delve into personal development from the angle of training our inner-voice to be nurturing and supportive, rather than being negative and self-destructive. We will explore how forgiving starts by overcoming the emotions that keep us stuck in the experiences that harmed or traumatized us. By overcoming those emotions, we can move on finally, and forgiveness occurs naturally. Focusing on the things we are grateful for and making a journal of them each day can be immensely valuable in our mission to forgive those who have done wrong to us and to also forgive ourselves for hurting ourselves and others.

Personal Development is a Whole-Life Experience

While Always and Never: 20 Truths for a Happy Heart is one of the best books for personal development because it teaches us that personal growth is an internal work rather than an external exercise, this book also encourages practical action steps. For example, we will look at the activities we engage in during our leisure time, the people we surround ourselves with, exercise, and meditation, and more. Indeed, the best personal development starts within, but it expands to encompass our entire lives.
