There are a 5 of the best self-growth books I have read during my journey that I recommend you read in 2019.
There is nothing like holding and smelling a book. I am not a digital reader nor will I ever be. I typically skim through articles and read the headlines and bold text. A book I sit down and ready page for page. I make time for a good book.
While reading this books below I’ve come to understand my journey a little bit more. I realized that others went through similar journies as I did.
These books made me question myself, my life, my purpose, and my mindset in a positive and loving way.
What I learned from the 5 self-growth books you need to read in 2019:
- I can make nothing out of something
- My subconscious mind is powerful
- My purpose in the world
- How to heal old wounds
- How to be self-aware
- The practical side of spirituality
- The collective energy
- Being authentic
- Mindset shifts for the better
- Understanding the mind
When we begin to embark on the self-love journey or beginning to learn ourselves and become self-aware we are looking for other humans out the world who have walked in our shoes.
We are either looking for the knowledge to help us comprehend what we’re experiencing or answer the questions we don’t have the answers to.
Or maybe you’re looking for motivation and inspiration while on your journey on those days of loneliness.
If you’re looking for books to inspire you or change your life then check out the following self-growth books below.
These books have personally helped me open my mind and change my perspective on certain subjects.
I look forward to sharing more books that I read with you in the near future.

The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav
The Seat of the Soul encourages you to become the authority in your own life. It will change the way you see the world, interact with other people, and understand your own actions and motivations. Beginning with evolution, Gary Zukav takes you on a penetrating exploration of the new phase humanity has entered: we are evolving from a species that understands power as the ability to manipulate and control—external power—into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul–authentic power.
Our evolution requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows us how to participate fully in this evolution, enlivening our everyday activities and all of our relationships with meaning and purpose.

Discovering Your Soul Signature: A 33-day Path to purpose, passion, and joy by Panache Desal
Your soul signature is your spiritual DNA—it is who you are at your core, the most authentic part of you, your singular contribution to this world. And yet we reject our authentic selves. We allow our soul signature to become blocked by any number of emotional obstacles that life throws in our path: anger, fear, guilt, shame, sadness, despair. Any or all of these feelings overtake us and create a density, a heaviness that doesn’t permit us to embrace who we truly are, deep inside. We are energetic beings, Panache Desai reminds us, and emotions are energy in motion. When we are blocked we feel unworthy, less than, unloved, incomplete.
Panache invites us on a 33-day path of meditations—short passages to be read at morning, noon, and night that are designed to dismantle the emotional burden that holds us back and open us up to changing our lives. Through this distilled, poetic, practical, and inspiring course, he invites us to live a life of authenticity, to rediscover purpose and passion, and to believe from our soul in the possibility of all things.
