I’ve read a lot of personal development books - well over a hundred by now - and they’re all different.
Some were really good.
Some were really interesting.
And only a couple didn’t repay the time it took to read them.
But the one I’m reading at the moment, ‘Think Like A Monk’ by Jay Shetty, is the only one that I could ever describe as a personal development book wrapped in a hug. It’s not that it’s lightweight (it has some very deep questions) and it doesn’t skirt around the bigger issues (it’s quite spiritual), but the whole delivery feels like change can be an incredibly positive thing, and there are no right or wrong ways to go about it.
And that’s the thing about personal change - it doesn’t have to be hard, and it doesn’t need to hurt. In fact, some of the most positive changes we can go through just happen gently over time…
