Top 10 Resources in Personal Growth for Positive Change

Are you ready to thrive and flourish?

Below are 10 resources I firmly believe will help you do so because they have made a profound positive impact on my life and the lives of many others.

These are resources for thoughtful, reflective people who want to prosper doing the things they love to do.  They operate from a time tested spiritual perspective best summarized in the following quote:

‘The quality of your consciousness at this moment is the main determinant of what kind of future you will experience.’ – Eckhart Tolle

In other words, do the deep inner work now to create the life of your dreams….

Top Ten Recommended Resources in Personal Growth

These are simply my favorites based on how much I utilize them on a consistent basis in my own life.  Some are online courses, some are books, and some are portals to inspiring teachers.  Some are free, others have a minimal cost.

Check them out, play around with them, and prepare for positive transformation.

Morning Ritual Mastery

Change your morning and you can change your life.  There are two basic ways to start the day:  reaction mode or intention mode.

The movers and shakers of this world – people like Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, Lady GaGa – begin with intention mode.  They take the time first thing in the day to take care of themselves mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Morning Ritual Mastery is a program that synthesizes the best habits of high achievers into a routine that you can personalize for your own life.  If fifteen minutes is all you’ve got, those are the magic moments that will move mountains for you.

The World Tapping Circle

The first time I tried the Emotional Freedom Technique, a.k.a. ‘Tapping’, I cried.  Why did I cry?  It was because I released tons of trapped negative garbage that no longer served me.

And it felt oh so good!  So good in fact that I now employ this unique energy healing technique at least once a week to overcome doubt, worry and fear.

You might think it’s kind of weird at first but I strongly encourage you to try it out at least once.

And now for my three favorite teachers…


The first time I heard Abraham-Hicks speak was an audio clip within a podcast.  What was being said resonated with me so deeply that I thought, ‘Wow, I need to listen to this person all the time.’

I did not know at the time that ‘Abraham’ is ‘non-physical source energy’ channeled by a lovely lady by the name of Esther Hicks.  Had I known this at first, I may have been too skeptical to receive the message.  But by the time I figured it out, I was an unabashed fan – and I still am.

Whether ‘Abraham’ is channeled or a creation of Esther’s imagination doesn’t matter to me or the millions of her fans.  What matters is the truth she speaks about reaching your infinite potential.  Check her out on YouTube to see for yourself, or…

Dr. Wayne Dyer

Wayne Dyer spent his childhood in orphanages and foster homes because his father abandoned his family.  He says it was this experience that ultimately taught him about the transformative power of forgiveness, another word for unconditional love.

Dr. Dyer is the author of 21 NY Times best sellers.  My two favorites are The Power of Intention and You’ll See it When You Believe It.

Has was also the star of 10 PBS specials including There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem.

Dr. Dyer has lifted me up on some of my darkest days.  Thank you Dr. Dyer.

Louise Hay

Despite a childhood fraught with emotional and physical abuse, Louise Hay was a pioneer of self-help techniques, the queen of positive affirmations, and the founder of a multi-national publisher of personal growth books and online courses called Hay House.

One of Louise’s most notable accomplishments was becoming a champion and mentor of people with the AIDS virus in the 1980s when no one else wanted to help them.  This earned her multiple appearances on Oprah which in turn helped usher the conscious spirituality movement into the mainstream.

What I’ve been learning from Louise Hay is how to love myself – and just how important that is.  Thank you, Louise.

And now for three books that have transformed my life…

You Can Heal Your Life

Following divorce and the childhood trauma she never fully processed, the above mentioned Louise Hay says her self-esteem was at an all time low.

But she decided once and for all to take control of her own destiny, and the second half of her life manifested joy, wonder, fulfillment, and accomplishment beyond her wildest expectations.

The core message of this book is:

‘If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.’ – Louise Hay

If you are ready to boost your self-esteem, live from your place of power, and start living on a higher level, then read You Can Heal Your Life.

The Power of Now

The first words of Eckhart Tolle’s guide to spiritual enlightenment are, “I have little use for the past and rarely think about it.”

From there I was hooked because I knew that I obsessed way too much over the past – my ‘mistakes’ and what others had ‘done to me’.  Such remembrances serve no purpose in life and yet I couldn’t stop replaying them over and over in my mind…until I discovered the Power of Now.

Oprah once said she keeps this book on her nightstand.  My copy is stored in my Kindle and I’ve highlighted probably 75% of it.  I refer to it often.

If you struggle with incessant ruminations over past events or constantly worry about the future, I highly recommend you read The Power of Now.

Conversations with God

What would you do if you found yourself homeless and ‘hopeless’.  How would you cope if everything dear to you had fallen away – your career, your family, your friends, your health, and all your worldly possessions?

This is where Neale Donald Walsch found himself at the age of 50.  So he posed angry questions to God like, ‘what does it take to live a happy life, God??!!  What are the rules?  What have I done to break them and to deserve such misery?!

God answered him and the result was a book that became a world-wide phenomenon.  The answers also transformed Neale’s life from destitution to prosperity in the ensuing months.

This is not a religious book.  It is about the unlimited ability of the human spirit to overcome any obstacle.

If you are locked in a deep struggle with life, read Conversations with God.

The Positive Head Podcast

Positive Thinking PodcastI started listening to this podcast about three years ago when I was grasping around for a new direction.  It was the beginning of a journey that led me to at least three of the resources I mention above.

Host Brandon Beachum’s mantra is “It’s a daily conscious effort to keep a Positive Head and we’re here to help you keep your consciousness elevated!”

Thank you Brandon and team for elevating me and your expanding tribe!  Here are the links to The Positive Head:

iTunes  •  SoundCloud  •  Google Play  •  Website  •  Facebook 

So those are my top ten resources but I do want to mention one more which I am in the process of digesting right now.  It is often referenced by Dr. Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Louise Hay and many other luminaries in this era of new consciousness.

It’s called A Course in Miracles and so far it is blowing my mind.
