Personal Development


Ultimate Guide to Personal Development

The Law of Success is the primary work of Napoleon Hill from which Think & Grow Rich is an abbreviation of. If you are truly studious, The Law of Success is the bible to personal development. Originally published in 1928, it is the culmination of twenty plus years of research understanding what separates extreme results for a few from the ordinary with the masses. It is as relevant today as when it was published some ninety years ago.

Beyond the "Power of Positive Thinking"

Many are familiar with Peale’s “The Power of Positive Thinking,” a staple into understanding how thinking differently can change your life. “Stay Alive All Your Life," his sequel, is not readily known, however, it is a powerful read connecting God and the individual, the soul. This book moved me in ways no other has to this day.

Finding Your Unique Personal Significance

This is a stand-alone book, not a 'sequel' to his famed book, “7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” The 8th Habit is about finding your unique personal significance and inspiring others to find theirs. It is an encyclopedia to be referenced again and again. This book could also be listed under Leadership but here because we are first our own leader.



Understanding the Roles of Each

The love she most desires and the respect he desperately needs is the theme of this book. When Elke and I first read this book it explained why our marriage is so successful. I cannot express enough the value this book is to understanding what works and does not work in a relationship. Naturally, the man respects the woman and the woman loves on a man; but God says for the man to love his woman and the woman to respect her man. In almost every instance I know of personally where a relationship has failed or in trouble, it can be traced back to this root, this truth

Love Communication

Probably the most popular book of recent times on relationships that has helped more couples understand one another than any other written. I personally love it because it gets to the root of communication in categorizing five general ways we choose to be loved. Understanding your partner’s love language allows you to speak to your loved one in a way they understand which quite likely is different from your own. It is a fairly quick and enjoyable read.

Discover Your Personality

This fun little book helps define personality types in such a way you can put it into practical use. It allows you to understand and communicate with yourself better but also those around you come in contact with. She includes a Personality Profile test that reveals how your unique blend of traits affects your emotions, work performance, and relationships. Through humorous anecdotes and straightforward counsel, Personality Plus guides you to improve upon your strengths and correct your weaknesses.



All Encompassing Leadership

Leadership is so important. If you desire to become a better leader of yourself, family, or others, this book is worth its weight in gold. It combines a lot of other proven lessons with the authors own experiences in an enjoyable read that will awaken you to true leadership principles. What makes this book extra special is it is written from the ditches of leadership within the all-volunteer environment of the Network Marketing industry, one of the most challenging leadership positions one will ever undertake.

Legendary Maxwell Leadership

Still one of the best leadership books of all times. This is as much a reference book as it is wisdom and a must read for anyone who sees themselves in a leadership position in any manner – which includes most everyone! Of Maxwell's many books, this is his best in my opinion.

Defines What Works

Although truly a business book, I include here because it defines great leadership from good leadership. Setting the vision, getting the right people on the bus and even more importantly, in the right seat! A very extensive study into why a few companies excel over their competition. Applying these principles to your life will greatly increase your chances of your own success and happiness.


The Bible is by far the number one best selling book in the history of mankind – for a reason. Whether you are a believer or not, one should study the proven wisdom understanding human nature contained within. It is the instructional manual for life so many complain life comes without. As I listen to others dealing with challenges, I’m consistently amazed how their answers are contained within this book they rarely if ever open. For the believer, it is a direct connection to the Father of all souls.

Deep Inner Reflection

A deep book towards inner reflection. It truly has you look at yourself and who you are as a person. This is not for the faint at heart but for those who wish an honest look at your character, integrity, and personna. This book will awaken your inner being. Farley goes into great detail about the wrath of God, what it is, and how it applies. A short but very powerful read.

Journey Into Higher Consciousness

Maybe more science than spiritual but this book will open your eyes to an entire new way of looking at our world. McTaggart spent seven years researching and writing this one of a kind book into higher consciousness and what she terms, the field. I was continuously awed with every page turned and amazed the science conducted since the 1920's not typically known. She connects the human experience with the environment as one. An extremely enlightening read.


Creator, Master of Elevated NLP

If you are new or seasoned to the world of NLP, this book is a must. Niurka gives you her background of a teenage runaway in search of her meaning. From the ages of 19 to 24 she worked with Tony Robbins immediately becoming his #1 sales person smashing all previous records. Today, she has taken NLP to the next level, what she terms, 'Evolved NLP.' Unlike anyone else in the NLP community, she incorporates the human spirit and love with the powerful NLP technology.

The Original by the Creators of NLP

Richard Bandler and John Grinder partnered back in the 70s through intense research and study into the deep structure of language. Most of their original work is still in use today and has been built upon to greatly increase the NLP value. This book covers in detail surface structure versus deep structure of language. Also, the Structure of Magic II.

77 NLP Exercises Categorized

A tremendous encyclopedia of sorts into the world of NLP. The book, by Dr. Hall, is in three parts and he further organizes the 77 exercises into eight groups. Each part and group is introduced with an overview of the topic. The structure for each exercise is provided. This is not a book to learn NLP but is a sourcebook for those already trained and practicing the art of NLP.
