Personal Growth

Achieve your goals, change your habits, question your thinking or beliefs, expand your comfort zone, challenge your biases...these are some of the ways in which we can personally grow. Personal growth is often initiated and supported by what we are experiencing and what information we are consuming. In order to improve and build forward momentum, personal growth requires effort, and, at times, it can be a very difficult and life-altering. However, developing into a better, more complete, more satisfied person is worth the effort. The information resources included in this list have challenged and encouraged others towards personal growth, perhaps they will do the same for you.
