Self-development books will teach you what you didn’t learn in school
I preach about self-development and self-improvement all the time. This is because I know the impact some self-growth can have on your life. I have witnessed it. Self-development does not only help you conquer your professional goals. You also get to have good relationships, know what you want and go for it, deal with issues such as self-esteem, self-doubt, anxiety among others, as well as increase your productivity. Here are some life changing self-development books you really should read. Continue reading
I have always liked reading, not only for fun but because reading has impacted my life in so many ways. I don’t read as much as I would like to because of time, and let’s face it, books can also be darn expensive. Time is especially a constraint I struggle with since as much as I would like to get paid just to read, I have to earn my bread and I will always prioritize on working than reading. Recently, I have found a new way to gain knowledge without necessarily sitting down to read. This has been through listening to audiobooks. They have become such time savers and I wish I discovered this before since I would have read so much more books than I have today. Continue reading
2018 has been a great reading year for me. Actually, I kind of took off a whole month to read when I wasn’t swamped with deadlines and discovered some new great reads. Of the many books I have read and reread, of course not including fiction, here are some books I think you should read in 2019 to self-educate some more Continue reading

I think we don’t talk about depression as often as we should, and with the rising rates of suicide, and people among us who are suffering from depression, it is time we talked about it openly and acknowledge that any of us can become depressed. Most importantly, we can encourage people to seek help when they express some symptoms of depression. Continue reading
Subcultures are formed through a myriad of factors, such as geography, hobbies, beliefs, and lifestyles. Some are more recognisable or transnational than most like the hipster subculture, which is made up of predominantly young to middle-aged adults; while others, such as steampunk, are more obscure. These niches are often difficult to understand from an outsider’s perspective but each one has its own interesting story.
Oh! Don’t let the title fool you, it is a pretty decent book. I promise.
When I mentioned this book as one of the 5 books that have changed my life, I was about halfway done. Now that I am done (and rereading it already) I think it deserves a special review. I like Mark Manson’s fresh view of life, his unapologetic views and opinions and how out of the ordinary this book addresses things that we are all too decent to mention. Continue reading
Say what you want to say about self help books, but I learn something from every book that I read. Sure, some of these books make me roll my eyes the whole time as I read, because they sound so obvious and forced. However, from every self help book, (or any other book), I take a lesson that I find myself applying in my life.
I don’t want to be overly dramatic by saying these 5 books have changed my life; but sure enough there is a lesson or two that I have learned from them that have created some form of impact in my life. Here is my list of impactful books and the lesson I borrowed from them.
