5 Books About Self-Improvement

5 Books About Self-Improvement

It wasn’t until the first time that I read a book on self-improvement that I realised that I was the only master of my fate. I realised that my happiness and wellbeing were only limited to my thoughts. I knew, then, that I should stop ignoring that inner voice that encouraged me to get better and overcome my obstacles. I had to learn to take on new challenges and get out of my comfort zone, and after several trials, this became a new way of living for me. While I acknowledge that self-improvement is only for the most committed people, I believe that the fulfilment that comes from directing your own life is worth the effort. To guide you in this path to self-improvement and discovery, I’ll share with you my personal top 5 books on this topic.
