5 personal development books to read this Spring

Running a business will test you. In the beginning, it will feel as though you’re the only one on a very dark and lonely journey until you finally break through and get some wind behind your back but then it doesn’t stop there.

Sure, you’ll grow your community and network to the point where you find some really great people who you find are actually walking the same path as you and it turns out it's not as lonely as you may have thought it was but you’ll still be challenged. You’ll still question yourself, doubt yourself, and really wonder if what you’re working at is even worth it.

And although the Ekwani team will always shout to you from the rooftops that what you’re doing is ABSOLUTELY worth it and ABSOLUTELY necessary and that you ABSOLUTELY deserve all the greatness that will come along with your success, YOU won’t believe it until you’re ready to.

This is why we’ve always been staunch supporters of elevating our minds! By prioritizing self-care, getting hands-on support in our lives and our business, and even by reading some transformational personal development books, is how we go further in our lives.

We believe that pouring into ourselves is the best way to pour back into our business and to those around us.

That’s why as we go into the Spring season, we wanted to stop and share with you some of the top 5 personal development books we think you should read this Spring!

Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck? by Seth Godin

If you’re a fan of Seth Godin’s blogs (one of the earlier Bloggers,) you’ll love his book “Whatcha Gonna Do with That Duck”

Created to empower you in your decisions through casting away the glossed versions of the truth we often get, Seth’s book sets out to help you organize your bravery, pay attention to what's happening around you, and how to make it work for you rather than against.

Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

A remarkable book described as “an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don’t understand”, Taleb’s book is meant to help you question the way you look at the world and how we do business.

Leaning heavily on our misperception of “luck”, Taleb pushes you to embrace the sometimes unknown.

The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss

A favorite amongst entrepreneurs, this book is all about burning the typical 5-day 40/hr workweek to the ground.

It focuses on teaching you principles that can help you work smarter, not harder, how you can structure your life so that you can enjoy the moments instead of work through them, and most importantly, how you can double your income without having to work a minute longer than you have to.

The Richest Man in Babylon by George Samuel Clason

If you’ve always liked parables, you’ll love “The Richest Man in Babylon”!

Using parables that are based 4,000 years ago in ancient Babylon, this book provides you with financial advice that’s paramount to utilizing through hard times and successful ones. It pushes you to secure yourself financially so that you can find happiness in other areas of your life too!

Atomic Habits by James Clea

If you’ve been struggling to create new habits and make real changes in your life, then Atomic Habits may be the one for you.

Geared towards using small actionable steps in order to make bigger remarkable results, Clea’s book pushes you towards becoming 1% better than you were yesterday. Because progress is progress!

Tell us, have you read any of these yet? If not, which will you tackle first?
