Steve's was one of the core books that inspired me to invest more in habit development and make more conscious efforts in molding my lifestyle. A great read that stands out among many other self-help books. Steve Pavlina is a strong advocate of putting in hard work, having self-discipline and courage as characteristics for meaningful results. Pavlina promotes seven core principles of Truth, Love, Power, Oneness, Authority, Courage, and Intelligence to led you to success. The first part of the book explains these principles in a very concise, engaging and easy to understand way and the last half of the book talks about how to apply these principles.

Motivations to Read

I was drawn by the tagline The Conscious Pursuit of Personal Growth and reading the reviews were positive, so I picked it up. (I'm much more strict with selecting books now) I’ve come across some of his blog posts and loved his writing style.

3 Reasons to Read

  • Develop a framework and a core set of principles for improving personal development
  • Learn how to develop good habits and break bad ones
  • Life experiences and narrative around personal development rather than a purely academic tone
