Get 9 Of My Self Development Books Absolutely Free – No Strings, No Email Needed
I have been writing self development articles since 2006. In that time I have amassed north of 2,000 posts and newsletter articles and my work has been seen about 5,000,000 times.
Over the years I have also written a number of books, some of which have been for sale and some of which were only available to my newsletter subscribers.
I have decided to make all of my books with the exception of Aligning With Your Core values free of charge.
Like, the vast majority of coaches, I got into this business primarily to help people.
With one-on-one coaching I’m highly limited to how many people I can help at any one time, but with my books I’m not.
I doubt all of the books will be suitable for you, but I’m confident a number will.
Please feel free to download whatever ones you want. There’s no email requirement, you can just grab and go.
The only favor I would ask in return is that if you read a book, or even spot one below that you think can help a friend or loved one, please forward it on.
Now here’s the free stuff!
How To Be Rich and Happy
This was a book that I co-authored with author of the best-selling ‘Why Cafe’, John Strelecky.
It has been published in countries as diverse as Germany, China, Netherlands, France, Canada and Taiwan with Germany just picking up the rights for the next 6-years. Woo-hoo!
If you’re looking for a get rich quick scheme then this will disappoint you.
The rich we refer to is being rich in spirit no matter what your bank balance says.
When we originally wrote this back in 2010 I had no clue who Donald Trump was other than a businessman who had bounced back from adversity.
Now I wince when people remind me I used him as an example in the book.
Please don’t remind me 😉
70 Amazing Facts About Your Brain
I wrote a post on 33 amazing brain facts back in 2012 that went viral.
Of all the posts I have ever written this created the most buzz on social media and people emailing me.
As such I decided to do a load more research and then expand it into a short book packed with fascinating information.
Some of the facts will amaze you and some will make you laugh out loud. In fact this book contains a lot of humor!
There’s also a story at the end about a fictional shopping trip (not my wife, honest!) that demonstrates how your brain can trick you if you’re not careful and how retailers manipulate you.
50 Greatest Motivational Quotes of All Time
Whereas my brain facts post had over 100,000 views it paled into insignificance next to my post on motivational quotes that has had over 1,000,000 page views.
Such was the level of traffic that my host shut my site down twice for a number of hours because I was in danger of crashing the server.
Of course motivational quotes are entirely subjective, but I’m guessing you will love a lot of the ones in this book and maybe some of your favorites are in there too.
Don’t Hesitate – Meditate
When I’m writing a blog post or newsletter it really doesn’t matter how controversial or in people’s face it is, I never get apprehensive.
That cannot be said for when I sent the draft of this book to a friend to check out.
Sending a book on meditation to a guy who has been a Buddhist scholar for 30-years is nerve-wracking.
Fortunately Bodhipaksa enjoyed it and with one minor revision gave it the all clear.
Meditation is an important part of my life now more than ever.
If you’re a newbie to it or interested to know more, this book will help you.
Don’t Ask Stupid Questions – There Are No Stupid Questions
This was my first published book and provided me with one of the highlights of my career when world-class sales and marketing guru Jeffrey Gitomer gave it a glowing review.
It’s a collection of short stories in the style of ‘Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff’ with a question acting as a prompt at the end of each chapter to promote further consideration.
Try printing it off and then turning to random chapters to work on one thing at a time when you’re sat on the toilet.
Or maybe don’t.
The Misery Manifesto
This is easily the funniest book I have ever written, but it does have a serious message.
In it I look at ways people find to make themselves miserable often doing things they think will bring them pleasure, but in reality never do.
This started off as a blog post way back in 2007, then became an award winning Toastmaster speech and then this book.
Try sending it to somebody you think works too hard at being miserable.
How Do I Set Goals That Work?
Let me tell you a little secret.
I don’t have any written goals.
I know, right, a Life Coach who doesn’t write his goals down – shock, horror!
There is actually a lot of research to suggest that for *some* people having written goals can be a hindrance.
I’m one of those people, but maybe you’re not, in which case this book may help you.
16 Ways To DeStress Your Life
My introduction to coaching happened in a rather a roundabout kind of a way.
Stressed senseless in 2004 I signed up to undertake a stress management course at Sheffield University back in England hoping it would help me deal with it.
The course was still valiantly clinging on to the methods from the 1950’s that were hit and miss at best.
Many of the methods in this book can be filed under ‘Well duh!’ but unless you’re a coach or an NLP practitioner I can pretty much guarantee that some will be new to you.
But better than they may be new to you, they flat out work if you bother to implement them.
If you’re stressed more than you would like, then it’s worth downloading and giving a quick scan.
I used to suffer from terrible, at times almost crippling, social anxiety.
It didn’t present with me when I was at parties, or even meeting new people – I revelled in that.
It would hit me when I was giving sales presentations.
And not every sales presentation it was very intermittent.
For 95% of the time I’d be fine, it was on the occasions when I didn’t think I was prepared that I’d feel like I was about to vomit on my audience.
There’s a great Seinfeld joke where he talks about research that suggested people’s number one fear was public speaking. And the seventh biggest was death.
So he suggested that at a funeral most people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy.
There are scores of different types of social anxiety and this book offers tools to deal with all of them.
As per my book on stress, some you will know, but some not only will you not know, but they may surprise you.
So there you have it, that is all I have for you.
I’d be very grateful if you’d consider sharing this page on Social Media and please do forward on any books you enjoy.
