With a flood of personal development books out on the market, from everything from just making your bed to manifesting all the money in the world – WHERE DO YOU START?
You will know I am a devoted reader of Personal Development and Business strategy books, and struggle to read fiction if I’m being honest, and it is with that love of books that I have decided to start doing a monthly Book Haul review for you on the blog and over on my Youtube Channel.
Why read Non-fiction?
Personal Development, working on ourselves in our spare time, is a life changing habit.
You can read all about how you can start your own Personal Development journey here of course.
Give yourself 15 minutes to change your mindset
I commit to at least 15 minutes a day or listening to an Audiobook or reading, and truly has changed my life.
If you are not a great reader, I love Audible to be able to pick up great books on the go and turn that car journey into an education experience.
Audible offer between 1 and 3 months free trial (1-3 free books!) depending on if you are a Prime member or not, so the perfect excuse to give audiobooks a go.
You can start your trial through this link, which is an affiliate link below, but I believe in this product so much I wouldn’t recommend it otherwise.

In a straight forward, non-technical jargon way Laura is on a mission to educate the UK with the simple money principles around finance, saving, investing and purchasing that will allow them to take control of their financial lives.
This is a great book to read to cover all the basics of how to get out of debt; how to buy your first home and also how to understand and purchase stocks and shares with each of the chapters broken down into clear and practical elements.
I really enjoyed this book, found it very easy to read and understand from a wide variety of reader backgrounds and knowledge levels – and strongly recommend it particularly to those with older children/university aged adults around that are looking for that first book for financial knowledge.
A great UK based book that aims to give the reader the basics to enter and start their financial journey’s with confidence.
As a follow up to his hugely successful Money: Master the Game book a few years ago, Unshakeable aims to break down the fundamental elements of investing for financial independence for any reader.
I am a huge lover of Tony’s books and mindset/success strategies techniques, knowing they have worked effectively in my own life for sure – and this book is one that I keep returning to for the first hand investing knowledge that you only get from someone who helps others achieve great things with money and business.
Although US based with it’s advice, I strongly recommend this when you are confident with the stock market terms and jargon – but a book that will give you more confidence in any investing decision you make that helps you on your journey towards security and stability.
The Abundance Project is about having more than enough in every area of your life—more than enough money, time, love, creativity, happiness—regardless of the circumstances you’ve been through or are currently facing.
I am a huge fan of Derek’s podcast every week, wholesome and uplifting for those seeking a spiritual element to their lives and also focusing on the good they already have whilst creating more of what they want.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book with many step by step techniques that allow you to focus on being present in the moment, whilst driving your thoughts and focus to creating more of your goals and setting actions each day.
A wonderful book that I would recommend to anyone looking to explore mindset and successful living strategies for builder a bigger more fulfilling picture for their future.
Catherine’s books are considered some of the greatest texts on Prosperity and Abundance from recent decades, and this book is currently my favourite.
Filled with practical real life examples of ordinary people using the power of their minds, affirmations and thoughts to design the life they want – this book speaks clearly and boldly to help us take control of our lives and shape them to include the elements of money, health and business we want in them moving forward.
I especially enjoy many of the wonderful affirmations that Catherine conveys to beautifully throughout the text, with each chapter focusing on a particular mindset skill in order to encourage abundance and prosperity in your life.
A great book that I use as a textbook often to reference for thoughts and inspiration on basic daily techniques that I can use to remind myself of the best possible that I and others can achieve.
