Books, blogs and people who made an impact in my life

Since I started the self-development and self-discovery journey, Ive read a lot of books, had few coaches , watched thousands of videos and read thousands of articles. As Jennifer Aniston said on one of Oprah Winfrey’s interviews:

If I had a dollar for every self-help book that was sent my way – I could have probably pay for this studio.

So I can’t possibly share all of them, but I will list those which made the biggest impact on my life (and even that list is far from being complete, cuz there are sooo many great people and their works).


The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – it’s already a classic. On how following our intuition and dreams will bring us to greatness

The witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho – about a woman who learned how to connect with her inner guidance

The gifts of imperfection by Brene Brown – on vulnerability and the need to be “cool” and perfect

A return to love by Marianne Williamson –  a reflection on A course in miracles, but much simpler to understand, with examples from her own life

The bridge across forever by Richard Bach – about searching and waiting for The one true love

The power of now by Eckhart Tolle – how to tap into the Now. I started to let go much more and to pay attention to my surroundings

The mastery of love by Don Miguel Ruiz – amazing guide on understanding and navigating relationships

A course in miracles – basically a Bible in different words. Still reading it, it’s big and a bit harder to digest then all others

I’m looking forward to your self improvement journey too and I’ll be looking at all these links later! The Alchemist is my favourite book because it helped me go for the things that I want in life instead of settling for less!! Great post 😄

  2. Thank you so much for listing my blog post and book. I am honored to be here. I’ve read Marrianne Williamson and Louise Hay’s books as well as some Deepak Chopra and Steve Jobs.
