One goal that everyone strives for (or should strive for) is personal development. Personal development books are an excellent way to meet and exceed this admirable goal. Personal development books allow an individual to get ideas as to how to personally develop. They also are a fantastic jumping off point in any personal development plan. Let’s take a look at some of the best personal development books on the market.
One of the best personal development books is “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams” by Deepak Chopra. In “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” Dr. Chopra discusses the seven Vedic principles of a purposeful life and applies these concepts to everyday modern living. This is a must-read book for anyone seeking a more fulfilling life path.
Among the important personal development books, one also finds the “Tao Te Ching” by Lao Tsu. This ancient Chinese book of wisdom was written over two thousand years ago. It takes the form of eighty-one short chapters, with each chapter encapsulating a veritable pearl of wisdom. It is not meant to be read cover to cover, but instead to be digested in small bites over time. As an example, one chapter simply reads “What is a good man? A teacher of bad men. What is a bad man? A good man’s charge.” Simply enchanting.
No list of personal development books can be complete without mention of “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran. The book takes the form of a novel in which a prophet waits in an unnamed for a ship to carry him back to his homeland after many years of exile. As he awaits, the people of the town gather to wish him well. The prophet, in return, shares his wisdom with them on life, love death and more. It is a book of both poetry and power and the wisdom contained therein cannot help but set an individual in motion toward meeting his or her own personal development goals.
As can be seen by these few examples, personal development books vary greatly both in style and content. The one constant among them is their ability to inspire, give insight and enhance the spiritual journey of everyone who reads them. The ability of a reader to communicate one on one with a powerful thinker, as well as take those thoughts to heart, cannot be underestimated. Personal development books are among the most important tools any individual can carry along the road to their own enlightenment.
