10 of the TOP Self Development Books if you want to change your mindset & as a result change your life. (Part 2)

I often get messages from people asking me how I have achieved the things I have to date in my business & in my life so far. I’m not afraid to say that I have built a really successful career & business, I’m proud of that because I definitely didn’t have any unfair advantages when I began but like anyone who has achieved something significant in their life, I was just willing to put in the work both physically, emotionally & mentally to change my life. I was not always the confident, self-assured, independent woman that I am today. As a child & as a teenager I continually looked to others for their approval, I second-guessed myself A LOT & found often making simple life choices & decisions hard! Seriously I was not self-assured & doubted myself a lot! So what changed well in 2013 I started on a journey of self-discovery & self-development, for the first couple of years I played with it, doing it here & there but in the last 12 months I have committed to this process & I see the value showing up in so many areas of my life. I have worked harder on my mindset more than anything else in my life & thanks to these books I have been able to improve my way of thinking, increase my knowledge, learn strategies & skills that are absolutely changing my life.


When I say Personal Development has changed my life I mean it & I know as I commit to learning & growing even further, the things I can achieve are truly limitless. So here are my next 5 books that have transformed my mindset & as a result my life!


  1. Law of Attraction: The Secret By Rhonda Byrne


This is a great beginners book if you are on the path to a different look on your life. It was one of the first personal development books I read it & my biggest take-away from it is that we are all in control of our own destiny through our thoughts which then dictate our actions.


The essence of the book is to show the reader the power of our minds, which if identified & used properly, can create waves of positive changes in our life. It deals with tuning our thought process which has the capability of making things happen; things that we otherwise would have never have imagined. Everything that happens to us is directly or indirectly is the result of our own thoughts, which if modeled properly, can change everything in our lives. In short, our thoughts become things.


Netflix has featured the book as a documentary so you can watch it on there.


  1. Money Mindset: The Secrets of Millionaire Mind by T Harv Ecker.

The funny thing about this book is that when I first picked it up to read it even the title made me shiver – The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Think Rich to get Rich, and do you know why this is, at that point in my life I had REALLY bad money mindset & even the word ‘Rich’ itself made my stomach churn. Was it any surprise that for 2 years my income from my business had stayed the same, despite my efforts to grow it. The simple reason being was I had reached my glass ceiling, my upper limit, on what I believed I deserved & I was capable of earning. If you feel stuck in your business or life, like you can never hold on to the money you are earning, constantly say things like, ‘Oh my god I am so poor, I have no money, I can’t afford it, it’s all right for some, I need to earn more money now!’ Then you most definitely have a poor money mindset & if you want your financial circumstances to change, you need to change your mindset around money.

I grew up in a single parent household & watched my mum work extremely hard to raise 3 children on her own on a nurse’s income, despite the fact, we got more than we needed, every Christmas we had new bikes, the latest toys & school holiday trips, I still knew that money was something my mum worried about constantly. There was never enough & anyone who knows me knows how much I love my mum but & how grateful I am for all she’s done for me especially as a child, I’ve definitely adopted her habit of spend everything you have & there’s enough never money, which is why over the years I have had to work SO hard on my mindset around money to change that.




This book is for you if you want to master the inner game of money so that you can not only achieve financial success but keep it once you have it. Using breakthrough techniques T. Harv Ecker shows you how your childhood & family experiences & inner mental attitudes actually shape your view of money. We all already have our own personal money & success blueprint that is & will continue to determine our lives. In the book he shares high-income & wealth creation strategies, what truly wealthy people know that others do not; the cause of almost all our financial problems, how to earn passive income, so that you can make money whilst you sleep.



The second time I listened to this book on audiobook I was shouting ‘YES’ absolutely agreeing to what Harv was saying & having so many light bulb moments, if you are reading this & already the title of the book has put you off, it’s a sign you need it! This will transform your mindset around money & re-programme the inner beliefs you hold around it!


My advice would be study this book & get busy implementing the advice & strategies.
